Description Javier Peña 2012-08-16 10:16:47 EDT
Description of problem:

While booting the RHEV-H image from the ISO, I want to specify more than one DNS server. According to the Hypervisor Deployment Guide (https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Virtualization/3.0/html/Hypervisor_Deployment_Guide/sect-Deployment_Guide-RHEV_Hypervisor_Kernel_Parameters_and_Automated_Installation-Networking_and_RHEV_Manager_parameters.html), I should use a colon as a separator for the two IP addresses. However, this does fail. No DNS entries are added, and the following is found at /var/log/ovirt.log after installation:

2012-08-16 08:51:45,648 - DEBUG - network - Setting DNS server 1:
2012-08-16 08:51:45,652 - WARNING - network - Failed to set DNS servers
2012-08-16 08:51:45,652 - DEBUG - network - Updating resolv.conf backups

Using a different notation (comma as the separator) works as expected, so I wonder whether this should be a documentation bug. I have traced the root cause of this to the /usr/lib/python-2.7/site-packages/ovirtnode/network.py file, where is splits the DNS entries using comma as a separator:

DNS = DNS.split(",")

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from the RHEV-H ISO image, with the following parameters:

dns=X.Y.Z.A:A.B.C.D install  <any other required parameter>

2. At the end of the installation, check /var/log/ovirt.log
3. Try using the following parameters:

dns=X.Y.Z.A,A.B.C.D install

4. It should work then.
Actual results:
DNS entries not added.

Expected results:
DNS entries added.
