OVirt 3.3 TestDay



  • engage project users and stakeholders to a hands-on experiences with oVirt new release.
  • improve the quality of oVirt.
  • Introduce and validating new oVirt 3.3 features

What I should do

  • If you already have the hardware, verify if it meets the hardware requirement, refer information detail section below
  • Update the Participants section.
  • Go a head and install ovirt
  • Accomplish the goals set in objective section , run the tests, update the test matrix.
  • Running into any issues - Try to get answer or open a BZ

Installation notes

  • make sure you have either a fedora 19 or centos 6.4 machine installed.
  • install the release pkg:
sudo yum localinstall http://ovirt.org/releases/ovirt-release.noarch.rpm
  • make sure to enable the [ovirt-beta] & [ovirt-stable] repos and disable the [ovirt-nightly] repo.
  • if you're using centos, make sure you have epel repo enabled as well:
name=Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 6 - $basearch
  • install & run setup
sudo yum install -y ovirt-engine
sudo engine-setup

Known issues

host installation

Fedora 19: If the ovirtmgmt bridge is not successfully installed during initial host-setup, manually click on the host, setup networks, and add the ovirtmgmt bridge. It is recommended to disable NetworkManager as well.

Regression testing


You need at least two physical servers to install and configure a basic yet complete oVirt environment with shared storage to exercise the following:

Scenario Bugs
Setup oVirt engine using either Active Directory or Local IPA, two hosts configured as hypervisors (Fedora / Ovirt-Node / other) with power management (Storage Domains - Data Domain / ISO Domain and Export Domain)
Setup oVirt engine - basic AIO flow
Use ISO Uploader to populate images of OS and tools
Basic Network Configuration
Create virtual machines and assign them to users
Migrate Virtual Machines between the hypervisors
Collect log file using the log collector tool
Upgrade from 3.2 to 3.3 including Fedora upgrade


Scenario Bugs
Configure high availability for virtual machines which are running mission critical workloads, so they will be restarted on another host if hardware failure occurs
Use the multi-level administration feature to assign different levels of user permissions
Live Migration Scenarios
Enable smartcard support for a VM and verify that the <smartcard mode="passthrough" type="spicevmc"/> is passed to libvirt


Scenario Bugs
Use the General configuration as a base configuration
Create different types of storage domains (NFS, ISCSI, FC, local storage) with 2 or more data domains
Install at least 2 VMs on each of the Data Centers
Move the master domain to a different domain within the Data Center
Export one of the installed VMs, delete it, import it to another Data Center
Create a template from one of the VMs and then create a new VM based on this template
Move the newly created VM to another data domain
Create several snapshots from a VM (Each time change something in the guest)
Create several live snapshots from a VM (Each time change something in the guest)
Restore a previous snapshot
Live migrate a disk between storage domains
Storage Failovers
Host Failovers
Power User Portal provides power users the ability to create and manage virtual machines from the power user portal
High Availability scenarios provides instructions to configure virtual machine and host high availability


  • Important Note: Known Fedora 19 bug: If the ovirtmgmt bridge is not successfully installed during initial host-setup, manually click on the host, setup networks, and add the ovirtmgmt bridge.
  • Base config - single NIC, bridge on top, VMs attached to NIC
  • Advanced configurations:

Vlan bonding.jpg make sure each of the configs can:

  • survive a reboot
  • test network at both host and VM level
  • ping and transfer large amounts of data (2Gb size files should be enough)
  • remain operational over time (1hr of uptime should be sufficient for the basic testing)

Bugs found:

  • Bug 906289 - [oVirt-webadmin] [network] Non-VM networks shown as VM networks on cluster attachment dialog
  • Bug 906291 - [oVirt-webadmin] [network] Non-VM networks not being detached from cluster
  • Bug 906313 - [oVirt-webadmin] [setupNetworks] "No valid Operation for <network_name> and Unassigned Logical Networks panel"
  • Bug 906383 - [vdsm] [setupNetworks] Error while attaching non-VM network to interface on Fedora 18
  • Bug 906393 - [oVirt] [network] Audit log message for unmanaged network
  • Bug 906394 - [oVirt-webadmin] [network] Loading animation in network main tab 'hosts' and 'vms' subtab is stuck on first view of the sub tab
  • Bug 906405 - Bad Error Message when Removing vNic from Running VM
  • Bug 906434 - Editing vnic's type and mac are blocked when the vnic was unplugged and updated to plugged
  • Bug 906440 - Updating type of a plugged nic should be blocked on the ui side


  • Basic operations on iso-uploader:
  1. engine-iso-uploader list
  2. engine-iso-uploader upload <iso> -i <iso-domain-name> -v -f
  • Basic operations on log-collector:
  1. engine-log-collector list
  2. engine-log-collector collect
  • Basic operation on image-uploader

engine-image-uploader --name=<new name here> -e <domain> upload my.ovf

New to v3.1:

  • port mirroring: one can setup a VM that sniffs all IP traffic between VMs on a network on a host.
  • no mac spoofing: VMs cannot emit packets with spoofed mac address (unless specifically allowed to).
  • Sync network: change network MTU (or other property) on host, verify that Engine may overwrite it with Sync network
  • Jumbo packets: see if can be configured and used by storage

New to v3.2:

  • Network main tab operational: you can search hosts and VM based on their network connectivity
  • Guest agent reported devices: install guest agent on a VM and see it report internal information of the vNics (internal device name, IPv4 and IPv6)
  • Network Linking: allow changing network the VM is connect to while it is running


by default we'll be using the webadmin as our API for testing on this section we'll try to have default deployment with the different APIs

Scenario Webadmin UserPortal Rest Python-SDK CLI
Create a data-center
Create a cluster
Update cluster
Install a host
Create a storage domain on DC
Attach export/ISO domain to DC
Create vm
Delete vm
Import vm
Start/hibernate/resume/stop vm
Create a snapshot to vm
Create a template from vm
Create vm from template
Sign out

Python API of the above scenarios can be found in: http://www.ovirt.org/wiki/Testing/PythonApi


For details about configuration check http://www.ovirt.org/wiki/Testing/Spice

Scenario Bugs
Install Windows VM and a Linux VM with Guest Tools (QXL graphic driver and spice vdagent)
Assign user to these vms, login to a user portal, from your client machine, and connect to it using the Spice protocol
Try to watch a clip via YouTube or any other web based video (with QXL driver installed on VM)
Try to watch a Local movie (with QXL driver installed on VM)
Try to use client mouse mode and clipboard share between client and VM (with spice agent installed on VM)
Install AutoCAD or any other graphic application a try to work with it (with QXL driver installed on VM)

User Interface



oVirt Node image is not currently available for the Test Day. The image should be available within the next day or two.


Scenario Bugs
Set DC Quota enforcement mode to 'Enforced'
Create new Quota which limits storage
Create new Quota which limits cpu and memory
Define consumers for the quotas
Asign the quotas to VMs and Disks
Run VM with quota
Move a disk
Snapshot a vm (disk)
Stop VM
Commit snapshot
See that quota usage makes sance
Open User Portal
Log-in as a user defined as quota consumer
Create VMs and Disks
Run VMs
Go to resources tab and see that quota usage makes sance
