Description Petr Matyáš 2018-06-05 15:35:41 UTC
Description of problem:
When I execute crash of a host which should initiate a kdump engine doesn't show that the host is in kdumping state and fences the host. This aborts the hosts attempt to dump the necessary information.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. add power management agent to a host
2. execute kdump on that host (echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger)

Actual results:
host is fenced as usual with no regard to kdump

Expected results:
engine should detect that host is in kdumping state and should wait with fence action

Additional info:

Comment 3 Petr Matyáš 2018-06-06 15:58:11 UTC
Since I didn't change anything since the last time you made this working I don't understand what could I influence that the host would or would not be reachable.
In other words, I didn't change anything in the testing process since bug #1517818 even the host is the same.

Comment 4 Martin Perina 2018-06-07 06:57:55 UTC
It really depends on exception, NoRouteToHost means that there is no way how to reach the host itself using TCP/IP, which I think is the root cause why kdumping kernel cannot send packets to fence-kdump-listener running on engine.

So could you please turn on debuggin for fence-kdump listener by creating file /etc/sysconfig/ovirt-fence-kdump-listener with content:


And then please retry the test, capture stdout of kdumping kernel (to see IP/FQDN where kdumping kernel is sending packets) and attach relevant parts of fence-kdump-listener debug logs from journalctl. Thanks

Comment 6 Petr Matyáš 2018-06-07 10:02:34 UTC
Most likely a kernel (or something) issue, after update and reboot the issue is gone.
