Description Alon Bar-Lev 2014-01-29 23:02:55 UTC
Due to a bug in 3.2 setup in which some of the files at /var/lib were owned by root, the setup tries to chown files to ovirt user.

A broken link cause setup to fail.

Broken links happens because old reports package that was installed and removed/changed.

moving to 3.3.2 since 3.3.1 was built and moved to QE.
(wasn't cloned yet to zstream, even though moving to modified before the build)

what are the steps for verification please? Thx!

> what are the steps for verification please? Thx!

for 3.4 it is difficult as this was backported to 3.3.z...

sequence was to create broken link at /var/lib/ovirt-engine/deployments, run engine-setup -- engine-setup fails.

now the deployments are created every time service starts, so cannot hold unexpected data.

Comment 7 Jiri Belka 2014-03-10 14:41:48 UTC
nothing to test here

15:41 < alonbl> jbelka: this issue is irrelevant to 3.4
15:41 < alonbl> jbelka: it was opened just to be able to clone to 3.3

Comment 8 Itamar Heim 2014-06-12 14:05:27 UTC
Closing as part of 3.4.0
