Description of problem:
In my test, it always failed to make template from VM on ovirt-engine. The following errors keep appearing in the event window:

"Failed to complete creation of template xp-template from VM guest-xp"
"Failed to complete creation of template BLANK from VM VmName"

No related error messages are seen in engine.log

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Just make template from a VM

Actual results:

The operation failed very quickly. The vm and the template are locked forever.
Comment 4 Eli Mesika 2012-06-17 08:54:29 EDT
Please add vdsm logs as well

Here's the corresponding vdsm.log.

From initial investigation, it seems that it falls on loading the source VM OVF.
So, either the OVF is corrupted or we have a regression....

I need additional info 
please attach the guest-xp and VmName OVF files.
to do that:

1)get guest-xp and VmName UUID:
> echo "select vm_name,vm_guid from vm_static where vm_name in ('guest-xp','VmName');" | psql -U postgres engine
lets assume those IDs are id1 and id2
2)go to your Master domain location (you can see that on the Master storage domain properties in WebAdmin : Edit Storage Domain)
3) perform the following command:
find . -name "*.ovf" -exec grep id1 {} \; -print
find . -name "*.ovf" -exec grep id2 {} \; -print

4) Attach the resulted OVF files to this bug.

Comment 7 Ofer Schreiber 2012-06-18 10:07:41 EDT
any updates about the OVF eli requested?

ovf file

Actually, the real name of the guest is xp3. So xp3.ovf is the file you requested.
And I didn't create a VM named "VmName", so I can't get the entry for it. And I didn't manipulate the default template "BLANK". I am not sure how the message for "BLANK" template is triggered.

Another ovf file

Another ovf file.
Actually, I have tried to make template on several VMs. All of them failed with the same phenomenon: get failure message in the event log very quickly and the VM is locked endless.
Comment 10 Koen van Bakel 2012-06-19 04:36:30 EDT
I have the same problem on ovirt-engine-3.1.0-3
I did have a look at the earlier provided logs... same results here.

Tried to create templates on/with different storage environments: iSCSI and Local. Problem stays the same.

In the ovirt-engine when you look at the tasks tab it states that the Copy of the VM has been succesfull but after that you get a repeating fail messages and everything is locked.

Comment 12 Ofer Schreiber 2012-06-19 12:20:31 EDT
Mark and Koen - Any chance you can retest this with Eli's patch?
Comment 13 Juan Hernández 2012-06-19 15:30:30 EDT
I think that the problem is that the OvfTemplateWriter class doesn't balance correctly the open/close tags. It might be that the StAX implementation that we used in the past closes them automatically, but the StAX implementation in OpenJDK 7 doesn't. I applied the following change:


And after that I can create templates correctly.
Comment 14 Mark Wu 2012-06-20 02:17:55 EDT
Sorry, I failed to build ovirt-engine from source code with the following error:

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-antrun-plugin:1.3:run (deploy) on project engine-server-ear: An Ant BuildException has occured: Failed to copy /home/mark/Work/ovirt-engine/ear/target/engine/engine-bll.jar/org/ovirt/engine/core/bll/adbroker/MultipleLdapQueryExecutionFormatter.class to /usr/share/jboss-as/standalone/deployments/engine.ear/engine-bll.jar/org/ovirt/engine/core/bll/adbroker/MultipleLdapQueryExecutionFormatter.class due to java.io.FileNotFoundException /usr/share/jboss-as/standalone/deployments/engine.ear/engine-bll.jar/org/ovirt/engine/core/bll/adbroker/MultipleLdapQueryExecutionFormatter.class (No such file or directory) -> [Help 1]

I installed ovirt-engine and jboss-as from rpm package before. I have no idea how to resolve this problem. I already set env "JBOSS_HOME" to "/usr/share/jboss-as", but didn't help.
Comment 15 Yair Zaslavsky 2012-06-20 03:31:09 EDT
Following comment #14
Mark - Did you check that /usr/share/jboss-as/standalone/deployments/engine.ear/engine-bll.jar/org/ovirt/engine/core/bll/adbroker/ path exists?

This error does not relate to the fix suggested in the patch.
Your $JBOSS_HOME seem to point correctly to jboss.

Can you please specify here what steps of compilation you ran (I just performed fetch/rebase and it works for me).
Comment 16 Juan Hernández 2012-06-20 03:43:10 EDT
Mark, please note that the development environment should use the .zip jboss installation, not the RPMs. In addition in the production environment (if you install the ovirt-engine RPMs) the engine-bll.jar file is not expanded like in development environments, but compressed. The file is in the /usr/share/java/ovirt-engine/engine-bll.jar and we have a symbolic link in /usr/share/ovirt-engine/engine.ear.

To setup your development environment please follow the instructions here (this is a draft of updated build instructions):


Once you are able to build then you can replace the engine-bll.jar file in the /usr/share/java/ovirt-engine of your production environment with the one produced by your build, which should be in the following place:


($OVIRT_HOME is the directory where you cloned the git repo, as explained in the build wiki)

Then restart the engine and try again.

New rpms (ovirt-engine-3.1.0-0.1.20120620git6ef9f8.fc17.noarch.rpm) has been uploaded to ovirt.org, with a fix to that issue (verified by Juan and myself)
Comment 18 Koen van Bakel 2012-06-20 10:10:31 EDT
Thank you. Problem is fixed. This morning I tested it with the new rpms...worked.
