Description Raymond Mancy 2013-04-17 04:03:58 UTC
Description of problem:

Multihost recipesets with a guest recipes fail when using CLIENTS role for guest.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a Multihost job with a guest recipe and CLIENTS
Actual results:

The host hangs at the end of /distribution/install

Expected results:

Job doesn't do this

Additional info:

This is because report_finish in rhts-test-runner.sh does

  rhts-sync-block -s CLIENTS SERVERS DRIVERS

The CLIENTS will be 'None' because the guest recipe does not have a system with an fqdn yet, it only gets this after it's own /distribution/install has run.

This is strictly a regression in 0.10, but really multi-host between hosts and guests has never worked right for various reasons, this is just yet another problem.

And just to be clear, using CLIENTS, SERVERS, or DRIVER as the role for a guest recipe will trigger this bug.
