Description Lukas Slebodnik 2019-04-02 10:40:22 UTC
Description of problem:
There were recent changes in rawhide and /usr/bin/yum is not installed by default
but it is still used in anaconda post section to install restraint harness

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Beaker 26.3 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reserve rawhide machine in beaker

<job retention_tag="scratch">
  <whiteboard>fedora rawhide [rs]</whiteboard>
  <recipeSet priority="Normal">
    <recipe whiteboard="" role="RECIPE_MEMBERS" ks_meta="" kernel_options="" kernel_options_post="">
      <autopick random="false"/>
      <watchdog panic="ignore"/>
          <distro_family op="=" value="Fedorarawhide"/>
          <distro_variant op="=" value="Server"/>
          <distro_name op="=" value="Fedora-Rawhide-20190331.n.0"/>
          <distro_arch op="=" value="x86_64"/>
        <system_type value="Machine"/>
      <task name="/distribution/check-install" role="STANDALONE"/>
      <task name="/distribution/reservesys" role="STANDALONE">
          <param name="RESERVETIME" value="86400"/>

Actual results:
After some time, machine will be in Aborted state due to timeout waiting for restraint.

Expected results:
Machine reserved without any issue

Comment 1 Lukas Slebodnik 2019-04-02 10:42:00 UTC
It would be good to use dnf to install restraint by default
and fall back to yum if /usr/bin/dnf does not exist.
