Description Jiri Belka 2012-11-30 09:31:48 EST
Description of problem:

vdsClient reports still old data after upgrade to rhevm-guest-agent on RHEL6 32bit, it still reports installed 'rhev-agent' which was uninstalled during upgrade. Several restarts of ovirt-guest-agent were done of course.

[root@localhost ~]# service ovirt-guest-agent restart
Stopping ovirt-guest-agent:                                [  OK  ]
Starting ovirt-guest-agent:                                [  OK  ]
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep rhev
[root@localhost ~]# grep ^app /etc/ovirt-guest-agent.conf
applications_list = kernel rhevm-guest-agent xorg-x11-drv-qxl

[root@dell-r210ii-04 vdsm]# vdsClient -s 0 getVmStats 2545aff1-dde2-4ce1-9de6-da6e82e8fa5c | grep appsList
        appsList = ['kernel-2.6.32-279.el6', 'kernel-2.6.32-279.14.1.el6', 'rhev-agent-1.0.5-5.el6ev', 'rhevm-guest-agent-1.0.5-5.el6ev']

WAP = web admin portal, it means "bad" data are even in web admin portal.
Comment 2 Jiri Belka 2012-11-30 09:43:29 EST
Same on x86_64.
Comment 3 Michal Skrivanek 2012-11-30 11:44:32 EST
this is intentional. waiting on gal/barak to comment why and if it's still needed
Comment 4 Gal Hammer 2012-12-02 10:21:24 EST
It was needed in order to support old GUI. I don't know what is the logic in the new GUI.
Comment 9 Jiri Belka 2013-01-31 08:46:02 EST
OK, sf4 & rhevm-guest-agent-common-1.0.7-4.el6ev.noarch.
