Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, migrating from Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization version 2.2 to 3.0 would update the key store with the CA certificate and not the trust store, resulting in an unusable trust store when later upgrading to Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization version 3.2. With this update, the trust store is now re-created during the upgrade to Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.2, resulting in a valid trust store.

Description Alon Bar-Lev 2013-06-21 07:27:58 UTC
There are cases in which CA certificate was re-issued but the trust store was not updated.

Known use cases: bug#824056.

This lead to failure of ovirt-engine-3.2.0 communicating with vdsm.

We probably can assume that /etc/pki/ovirt-engine/ca.pem is updated and recreated the trust store when upgrading.


# cp /etc/pki/ovirt-engine/.truststore /etc/pki/ovirt-engine/.truststore.$(date +%Y%m%d%H%M%S)
# keytool -delete -noprompt -alias cacert -keystore /etc/pki/ovirt-engine/.truststore -storepass mypass
# keytool -import -noprompt -trustcacerts -alias cacert -keypass mypass -file /etc/pki/ovirt-engine/ca.pem -keystore /etc/pki/ovirt-engine/.truststore -storepass mypass

Comment 1 Alon Bar-Lev 2013-06-21 07:41:57 UTC
Re-running setup did not re-created the keystore if already existed, this was already found and resolved in 3.3.

    pki: delete cacert alias from keystore before import
    Java keystore will not overwrite certificate, leaving the previous one.

Comment 2 Alon Bar-Lev 2013-06-21 07:58:49 UTC
BTW: This issue (comment#1) was discovered when the new devenv was reinstalled to same directory. The root cause is a lack of check for failure in the pki scripts. Because of that and other issues in code, and because bug#824056, I completely re-wrote[1] the pki scripts to higher level of shell programming, and to be human usable. And even this is not enough as I had to leave the files' format, location and permissions that should also be modified.

Comment 3 Alon Bar-Lev 2013-06-21 10:18:12 UTC
An update, thanks to Lee Yarwood for the references.

rhevm migration tool from 2.2 to 3.0 updated the .keystore[1] and not the .truststore with the ca certificate.
rhevm-3.0 had issue it adds .keystore[1] and not .truststore[2] to the database, while creating .truststore[4].
rhevm-3.1 behaves in similar manner.
rhevm-3.2 is using the .truststore, so if the .keystore was updated by the migration tool we end up with invalid .truststore.

The solution outlined at comment#0 is valid and can be run automatically at upgrade to 3.2 to solve this as well.
