Watchdog model ib700 not supported
Last modified: 2016-02-10 15:17:20 EST
Description of problem:
When adding watchdog card of model ib700. Watchdog card doesn't exist on VM.
`lspci | grep -i watchdog` returns nothing
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add VM with watchdog card
2. Set watchdog model to ib7000
3. Install linux OS
4. see `lspci | grep -i watchdog`
Watchdog card ib700 is not supported yet in is10
can you provide us the relevant vdsm log please?
ib700 is not a PCI device, you will not be able to detect it with lspci
Lukas, I just noticed that the ib700wdt module is not loaded by default in fedora. Please check that in the guest VM the ib700wdt is loaded, otherwise even though the watchdog daemon is started, the watchdog is not armed, therefore the action will not be triggered.
After enabling the kernel module in guest, the ib700 device worked just fine for me.
the problem was that the kernel module was not loaded (in fedora nor RHEL)
did the work...
however after setting action to dump/reset and installing watchdog card ib700 properly, when I tried to trigger watchdog by killing the watchdog process (killall -9 watchdog / kill -9 `pgrep watchdog`), watchdog action was not triggered (neither after crashing the kernel)
when I checked the edit option tab of Vm in High Availability watchdog model as well as watchdog action what again set to blank
/api/vms/`vm-id`/watchdogs changed from
<watchdog href="/api/vms/07fe5216-18fd-4869-844b-cf43a1377220/watchdogs/00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000" id="00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000">
<vm href="/api/vms/07fe5216-18fd-4869-844b-cf43a1377220" id="07fe5216-18fd-4869-844b-cf43a1377220"/>
to <watchdogs/> right after the VM is started
