Description Mike Burns 2012-04-10 12:44:27 UTC
Description of problem:
when attempting to connect to libvirt-cim using sfcb in an ovirt-node environment, the request hangs forever.  

Debugging showed this to be a segfault in the libvirt-cim code

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
latest f17 version of libvirt-cim and sfcb
ovirt-node 2.3.0

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start ovirt-node and enable cim
2. attempt to connect using a command like:

wbemcli ein -noverify https://cim@hostname/root/virt:KVM_VirtualSystemManagementService
Actual results:
Hangs forever

Expected results:
Returns with valid data

Comment 1 Daniel Veillard 2012-04-10 13:21:09 UTC
Actually that just worked for me

paphio:~ -> wbemcli ein -noverify https://foo:bar@"KVM_HostSystem",SystemName="dhcp75-203.virt.bos.redhat.com",CreationClassName="KVM_VirtualSystemManagementService",Name="Management Service"
paphio:~ -> 

on the ovirt node there is the following packages:

[root@dhcp75-203 admin]# rpm -q libvirt libvirt-cim libcmpiutil sblim-sfcb
[root@dhcp75-203 admin]# 

The hang used to come from loading the libvirt-cim shared libraries in the
sfcbd daemon server space (this is done on-demand) this used to crash
and the resulting request was kept pending. On the specific configuration
above this seems to work,

Yes, this works downstream in rhev-h/ovirt-node builds, but fails with upstream.

Comment 3 Cole Robinson 2013-06-26 18:11:57 UTC
Since F17 EOL is approaching in a month, I doubt this will be fixed in F17. If this still affects you, please try reproducing against F19 and we can reopen.
