Comment 2 Dave Johnson 2017-11-20 21:13:47 UTC
Leo, is this a regression?  And which auto_placement logic are we using, tagging or C&U data? (which I am not familiar with and we probably need to make sure we have coverage around moving forward.  ;)

Marking as blocker for now.

Comment 4 Dave Johnson 2017-11-21 16:29:00 UTC
It should be noted that this is working everywhere but scvmm.

Comment 5 Dave Johnson 2017-11-21 16:29:30 UTC
Also seen in 5.8.0

Comment 6 Adam Grare 2017-11-21 16:30:24 UTC
I believe the real issue is that placement_ds_name is nil, looking at the best-fit least utilized for scvmm ( we get the host from the storage.

Comment 7 Dave Johnson 2017-11-21 16:31:00 UTC
Specifically tested on 5.8.2 (comment 5), apologies for the extra SPAM

Comment 8 Greg Blomquist 2017-11-27 22:07:52 UTC
Adam, based on comment #6, does that make this user error?  Or, is this a bug that needs to be investigated?

Comment 9 Adam Grare 2017-11-28 00:53:55 UTC
I think this is still an issue, my guess right now is that networks with the same name have a different uid_ems and picking a specific network is filtering the list of eligible_hosts to 0.

Comment 10 Adam Grare 2017-11-30 18:17:03 UTC
Actually I think this is much simpler, for some reason every one of my hosts report that they are in maintenance mode and skips hosts in maintenance mode for best_fit_least_utilized.

I'm looking into why the parser is setting every host as in maintenance mode.

    Fix host maintenance mode
    Host OverallState is an integer but was being compared to "ok" so all
    SCVMM hosts were being treated as if they were in maintenance mode.

Comment 13 Adam Grare 2017-11-30 20:53:13 UTC
This fixes hosts being in maintenance mode when they shouldn't be.  I don't get this error anymore but I do get a clustered datastore error which is unrelated to this bug.

Comment 15 Adam Grare 2017-12-05 13:02:45 UTC
Present in 5.8 so setting 5.8.z ?
