Description Simon Grinberg 2012-09-03 06:13:46 EDT
Description of problem:
The script assumes that nfs is stopped and only tries to start it. This may not be the case like in my setup where I've reused existing machine. 

The mount point created correctly
The entry was added to the /etc/exports file
Then installation failed. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start the nfs service 
2. rhevm-setup 
3. Answer yes for: Configure NFS share on this server to be used as an ISO Domain? ['yes'| 'no']  [yes] : 
Actual results:
Installation will fail due to ISO domain creation failure. 

Expected results:
Request to stop the service if it's already running

wouldn't reload work and should be done if service is already up?

Comment 3 Alon Bar-Lev 2012-09-03 07:07:17 EDT
Regardless of it is better to use reload when service is up.

Looking at the code it is always stop before start, while ignoring stop result.

I could not reproduce this on upstream and downstream.

Simon, if it is reproducible at your machine I will be happy to investigate.

Unfortunately in the last couple of days, I've been spending too much time on debug or showing issues on my system. I only have two more days to prepare my work thus I can't afford more delays. 

I'll try to recreate for you in two weeks, I don't see this as urgent. 

Alternatively this may be a race (do to not waiting for the stop to succeed) so here is some more info: 

1. I did this on a VM.
2. In the exports files there was already an exported directory. This means the nfs did had something to export. This may delay the stop since it may need to verify there are no users first.
