Screencast showing deployment removal problem.

Description of problem:

  With upstream Aeolus 0.10.x rpms (on F16),
  it's not possible to remove failed deployments.

  For example, with a recent setup, I have 3 wordpress
  deployments which failed when being started up.

  All three completely refuse to go away, no matter
  what I try to do to delete them.

  Screencast showing the problem (.mp4) attached.
  The deployment instance history and other info tabs
  are shown in the screencast.

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


How reproducible:

  Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Probably the easiest way to cause a failed
   deployment, is by manually removing a
   VMware image from the backend NFS storage,
   once it's been pushed.
2. After that, Aeolus will attempt to launch
   the deployment, but the instance with
   missing storage will be status
   "create_failed".  It's deployment will not
   be removable.

Comment 3 Justin Clift 2012-07-14 02:32:58 EDT
Found a case where deployments still can be killed.  Screenshots attached showing the problem, the History tab for the instance in question, and the related error in the VMware screen that I think caused it.

Looks like a follow up patch is needed. ;)

Comment 7 Jan Provaznik 2012-07-24 08:24:21 EDT
the issue described in Comment 3 is not conductor-related, it's probably dc-api bug, created new bug for it here: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DTACLOUD-287
Comment 9 Ronelle Landy 2012-09-21 15:49:11 EDT
Tested rpms:

>> rpm -qa |grep aeolus

Created a failed deployment by launching an instance in a rhevm realm with no hosts to start the vm. I was able to delete the deployment from the /conductor/deployments page.

See the attached screenshots.

Marking this BZ as 'verified'
