Fixed In Version: ovirt-3.5.0-beta1.1

Previously, using the ISO uploader with the --nossl option to upload an ISO domain failed because HTTP isn't supported. Since the Rest API doesn't support plain HTTP connections, the --nossl option has been removed.

juan, any change in SDK that may have caused this?

Comment 3 Juan Hernández 2014-05-23 15:13:29 UTC
If I understand correctly providing the --nossl option means that the ISO uploader will try to connect to the HTTP port, instead to the HTTPS port. The RESTAPI isn't available in the HTTP port, so this will never work. In this case the server will send a redirect to the HTTPs port:

  HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily
  Location: https://whatever/api

The Python SDK doesn't understand these redirects, so it will just fail. This hasn't changed recently.

If you want to debug this further you will need to add the "debug=True" parameter to the constructor of the API:

diff --git a/src/ b/src/
index 1c4c93a..c19d4e5 100644
--- a/src/
+++ b/src/
@@ -498,6 +498,7 @@ class ISOUploader(object):
                     validate_cert_chain=not self.configuration.get("insecure"),
+                    debug=True,
                 pi = self.api.get_product_info()

Then capture the output.

A dump of the traffic between the ISO uploader and the engine can also help.

Comment 4 Simone Tiraboschi 2014-07-08 13:30:26 UTC
Rest APIs doesn't support plain http connection so nossl options doesn't make sense. Removing it.

Comment 5 Sandro Bonazzola 2014-07-08 13:47:21 UTC
please verify if image-uploader and log-collector are affected too.
