Description Mark Hamzy 2012-05-17 14:21:50 UTC
Fedora 17 DVD build does not contain device-mapper-multipath.  When installing a machine with a multipath setup, it will appear to succeed.  However, when it is rebooted, multipath will not be setup.

I notice the following in the logs:

/var/log/anaconda/anaconda.log:14:11:00,097 DEBUG anaconda: no package matching device-mapper-multipath

And, upon further investigation, I notice that the device-mapper-multipath rpms are not on the media.

Comment 1 Bruno Wolff III 2012-05-17 15:54:23 UTC
Was this with RC1?

Comment 2 Bruno Wolff III 2012-05-17 15:55:49 UTC
I am not sure this is really a blocker, but it looks like it could potentially be and should get reviewed.

Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2012-05-17 17:12:13 UTC
Confirmed that device-mapper-multipath isn't in the packages dir on RC1.

    Drop device-mapper-multipath from @base (#739327)
    Anaconda will still install this where necessary. Long-term, this should be in some sort of advanced storage group.
    (And mdadm, lvm2, etc. would be listed there as well.)

That was before the release of 16, though, so I guess something still pulled it in via dependencies at that point.

Discussed at the 2012-05-17 Fedora 17 final go/no-go meeting. Accepted as a blocker for Fedora 17 final due to violation of the following Fedora 17 final release criterion [1]:

The installer must be able to complete an installation using any network-attached storage devices (e.g. iSCSI, FCoE, Fibre Channel)

Seeing as multipath is very much the norm for higher end networked storage, it isn't much of a conditional breakage.

Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2012-05-17 19:06:59 UTC
So I noticed fcoe-utils is also missing. I think we need a more systematic approach to ensuring all the stuff anaconda can add to the installation package set when it deems it appropriate is actually on the DVD. notting will create a new comps group for this purpose. So, see:

Discussed in the 2012-05-18 blocker bug review meeting. The comps changes from comment #7 were included in Fedora 17 final RC2 and this needs to be tested to verify that the needed builds are now included on the DVD.

If they are, we are going to need a new build of spin-kickstarts before the next RC due to the Fedora 17 final release criterion [1] :

A Package-x-generic-16.pngspin-kickstarts package which contains the exact kickstart files used to build the release must be present in the release repository. The included kickstarts must define the correct set of release repositories.

Comment 9 Tim Flink 2012-05-21 16:04:54 UTC
Confirmed that device-mapper-multipath-0.4.9-25.fc17 and device-mapper-multipath-libs-0.4.9-25.fc17 are both present on the RC2 DVD media.
