Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 801261
documentation lists ovirt-* commands, but binaries are engine-*
Last modified: 2012-08-09 04:03:07 EDT
Description of problem:
section 9.2 of the ovirt 3.0 installation guide references command ovirt-iso-uploader, but that binary doesn't exist. engine-iso-uploader does. appendix b lists ovirt-manage-domains, ovirt-config, ovirt-log-collector. it looks like ovirt-manage-domains is also referenced in other sections.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. read docs
2. try to run command
various 'command not found' errors
not sure if the rpm should be changed to match the docs or the docs to match the rpm.
I am going to guess we are sticking to the command prefixes being 'engine-*', is that correct Itamar? The guides currently use 'ovirt-*', no doubt due to a misunderstanding on my part.
AFAIU, the downstream commands will continue to be prefixed by "rhevm":
The upstream counterparts are called:
I can rename the upstream ones to whatever we want but, I would be hesitant to rename the downstream versions because people are familiar with that convention now.
For the documentation guys:
The upstream and downstream projects all have manpages that are correct, AFAIK. They list config files and such that each tool reads. Shoot me an email if you have problems finding the manpages (use the latest from the git repos)
OK, here's the deal. You must be getting .rpms from . Those RPMs were created around the time that there was a bunch of name changing going on. I think we ultimately decided that upstream RPMs would be prefixed with "ovirt-*" and the actual tools would be prefixed with "engine-*". I have made changes to all of my tools pursuant to that .
[keith@whiplash junk]$ rpm2cpio ../ovirt-engine-log-collector-3.0.0_0001-1.6.fc16.x86_64.rpm | cpio -idmv
[keith@whiplash workspace-public-projects]$ grep _bindir ovirt-log-collector/*.spec ovirt-image-uploader/*.spec ovirt-iso-uploader/*.spec*
Found new occurrences of the problem in the Install doc. Appendix B:
B.2. Configuration Tool
During installation, only a subset of oVirt Engine's configuration
settings are modified from their defaults. You make further
changes with the included configuration tool, ovirt-config.
The "ovirt-config" there (and mentioned elsewhere) should be "engine-config".
Actual path to the binary is /usr/bin/engine-config, if that helps. :)
closing ON_QA bugs as oVirt 3.1 was released:
