Description Marcus West 2019-03-21 03:19:36 UTC
## Description of problem:

When trying to install HE 4.3 beta, I specify an ova file (presented via NFS).  The installer still try to install the rhvm-appliance anyway and fails.  If i register the hypervisor to the beta channel, it downloads rhvm-appliance anyway.

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


## How reproducible:

Always (once)

## Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install rhv-h
2. download rhevm-appliance-20170616.0-1.x86_64.rhevm.ova and present via NFS
3. run 'hosted-engine --deploy --config-append=ans.conf'
4. in ans.conf, have


## Actual results:

1. When hypervisor is not registered (or registered to GA channel), installation fails
2. When hypervisor is registered correctly, rhvm-appliance-4.3-20190220.2.el7.x86_64.rpm gets installed anyway

## Expected results:

I have already downloaded rhvm-appliance-4.3-20190220.2.el7.ova, so I don't want to download the rpm file again.

## Additional info:

Use case: for setting up multiple test environments, it's easier and faster to just have the ova file stored somewhere locally, rather than download the rpm each time, during install.  There may be other cases where RHV environment is deployed off-line, or want to deploy a specific (ova) version.

log from 'successful' install

Not that for this install, I did not want rhvm-appliance to be installed, I wanted the specified ova file to be used (/mnt/rhvm-appliance-4.3-20190220.2.el7.ova)

Comment 7 Nikolai Sednev 2019-04-02 16:36:19 UTC
Deployment over NFS on clean environment had succeeded using these components on hosts:
Works for me on these components:

Linux 3.10.0-957.10.1.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Feb 7 07:12:53 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.6 (Maipo)

Tested on RHEL hosts.

Prior to deployment I manually downloaded rhvm-appliance-4.3-20190328.0.el7.x86_64.rhevm.ova and used it during deployment.
Rpm appliance was not installed and OVA was used instead.

Moving to verified.
