Description Daniel Horák 2016-07-11 11:42:52 UTC
Description of problem:
  Cluster creation fails on Ubuntu nodes with following error for each node:
    Package installation failed on HOSTNAME

  From skyring.log it is obvious that the problem is with installation of ceph-mon, ceph-osd and other related packages:
    msg: No package matching 'ceph-mon' is available

  The problem is, that appropriate repos are properly added to the nodes, but the package index is not refreshed by `apt-get update`.
  When I manually refresh the package index on each Ubuntu node by execution of `apt-get update` command, second try for cluster creation including package installation pass correctly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
  USM server (RHEL 7.2):
  # rpm -qa | grep -e rhscon -e ceph

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Prepare bunch of Ubuntu nodes and RHEL USM server.
2. Add appropriate repos to the Ubuntu nodes (correspondingly to the roles of the node - MON, OSD) and configure rhscon-agent accordingly to the documentation.
3. Try to create Ceph cluster.
4. Manually refresh the package index on all Ubuntu nodes (`apt-get update`).
5. Try to create Ceph cluster.

Actual results:
  Firstly cluster creation fails on all *Package installation* tasks on Ubuntu nodes.
  Second try of cluster creation pass, all packages are properly installed.

Expected results:
  It should refresh package index on Ubuntu index before installation any new package.

Additional info:
  Maybe it is bug for ceph-installer/ceph-ansible or just documentation issue, fell free to move this Bug to the appropriate component.

Comment 1 Alfredo Deza 2016-07-11 20:56:18 UTC
It is not clear where in ceph-ansible this is failing. The ceph-installer captures most information from requests (in this case from USM) and it is important we get this to get details and determine what is missing.

This is documented here:

Could you create an attachment with the output of the failed task?

Comment 2 Daniel Horák 2016-07-12 07:28:16 UTC
Created attachment 1178768 [details]
Failed ceph-installer tasks /api/mon/install and /api/osd/install

Please find the log from failed tasks in attachment.

When I run `apt-get update` on each node and launch this tasks again, it works correctly.

Comment 3 Alfredo Deza 2016-07-12 13:06:57 UTC
You mention that you are doing this step:

> 2. Add appropriate repos to the Ubuntu nodes (correspondingly to the roles of > the node - MON, OSD) and configure rhscon-agent accordingly to the documentation.

But ceph-ansible is in charge of setting up repositories for you. Can you point out what documentation is telling you to add repositories manually?

The task will do `apt-get update` for you as long as the cache hasn't been updated in the past hour.

Comment 4 Daniel Horák 2016-07-12 14:08:24 UTC
With the explanation about cache expiration in previous comment and after check of documentation, where is `apt-get update` mentioned after adding any new repository, I'm closing this as NOTABUG.
