Catching RemoteError and reconnect solves the issue, but I still investigate why this is not occurred over fedora. IMHO, It has something with multiprocessing package.
Dan, any rejects to merge that fix?
Comment 3 Yaniv Bronhaim 2013-07-23 08:00:30 EDT
After restart of libvirt, calls with old connection will lead to sigterm, that will restart the caller's service. after establishing new connection all will work properly. 
Although, if supervdsm did the call and restarted (as happens while you call to setupNetworks), the next call of vdsm to supervdsm (whatever call it is) will fail and lead to reconnect. Just keep in mind that after such scenario we raise exception to see the error. Restart of libvirt or supervdsm is something that needs to be handled, we could restart and make the same call automatically (as we did in the past) but that hides the crash. We preferred to report the error first, then reconnect and then let the caller decide if to make the call again or handle the error specifically.
