Description Andreas Muehlemann 2013-07-04 08:35:56 EDT
Description of problem:
While installing a virtualization host, the installation stopps with the error

'Cannot locate vdsm package, RuntimeError: Cannot locate vdsm package, possible cause is incorrect channels'

I do not find the vdsm package in any of the Red Hat Channels. Which channel is needed or is the package missing?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 6.4

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. prepared the host, set RHN channels rhel-x86_64-server-6 and rhel-x86_64-rhev-agent-6-server
2. in RHEV Management GUI, add Host and start installation
3. Host installation failes

Actual results:
Host installation fails

Expected results:
Host installation completed

How were you trying to install RHEV?
Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2013-10-13 19:25:02 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

This isn't an anaconda traceback. Whatever owns otopi.plugins is where it belongs.
Comment 5 Alon Bar-Lev 2014-01-06 17:37:41 EST
Ohad,
Please provide the set of channels required on rhel for vdsm to be installed.
Thanks,

Hi Anitha,
Can you please assist?
Thanks,
Comment 7 Anitha Udgiri 2014-01-07 12:35:09 EST
Alon,
   The channels initially used to install the host should be good enough.
Just wondering if there were some issues with the packages in the channels when the user tried the install.
I see that this case is almost 6 months old. 
Does the problem still occur when following the installation steps mentioned here :
https://access.redhat.com/site/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Virtualization/3.2/html-single/Installation_Guide/index.html#Subscribing_to_Required_Channels_using_RHN_Classic  ?
Comment 9 Andreas Muehlemann 2014-01-13 03:06:59 EST
Hi Anitha

Now the documentation in section 9.3.3 mentions the the channel

Red Hat Enterprise Virt Management Agent (v 6 x86_64)

which contains the vdsm package. This channel was missing when I tried the installation some month ago.

Thank you for correcting the documentation.

Best regards
Andreas
