oVirt 3.6.0 Release Notes

The oVirt Project is pleased to announce the availability of oVirt 3.6.0 Release as of November 4th, 2015.

oVirt is an open source alternative to VMware vSphere, and provides an awesome KVM management interface for multi-node virtualization.

Experimental Docker Integration

oVirt Engine setup now provides experimental Cinder and Glance automated deployment using Docker

Cinder and Glance images are from kollaglue project. https://github.com/openstack/kolla kollaglue is ‘the official’ effort from openstack project to provide production-ready containers and deployment tools for operating OpenStack clouds. The kollaglue Docker images are built by the Kolla project maintainers. On oVirt side we have an optional plugin for oVirt engine-setup to pull and deploy their ready to use containers (glance and cinder only) and automatically adding them into your oVirt engine isntance.

Recently the cinder container setup for oVirt got broken cause they introduced the use of Ansible’s playbooks to customize and complete the container setup and unfortunately we are still not ready for that. You should be able to manually setup cinder with that containers following this guides: https://github.com/openstack/kolla/blob/master/doc/ansible-deployment.rst https://github.com/openstack/kolla/blob/master/doc/cinder-guide.rst

Glance container setup and its oVirt integration are still working.

Kolla images will not run on Fedora 22 or later currently. Fedora 22 compresses kernel modules with the .xz compressed format. The guestfs system in the CentOS family of containers cannot read these images because a dependent package supermin in CentOS needs to be updated to add .xz compressed format support.

Self Hosted Engine FC Support

Hosted Engine has now added support for FC storage

Self Hosted Engine Gluster Support

oVirt Live

oVirt Live has been rebased on CentOS 7 allowing to run oVirt in 3.6 compatibility mode

Experimental Debian Support for Hosts

Experimental support for running oVirt Hosts on Debian (or similar) has been added providing custom packaging of needed dependencies.

Fedora 22 Support

Support for running oVirt on Fedora 22 (or similar) has been added providing custom packaging of Wildfly 8.2.0.

VirtIO Serial Console

Users can now directly connect, using ssh, to the serial consoles of the VMs.

Affinity Rules Enforcement Manager

This feature is a manager that checks if hard affinity rules are broken and migrates VMs in order to enforce them. Behavior of the manager:

  1. Manager only starts migrations when no other migrations are active in the cluster.
  2. Manager uses scheduler’s automatic migration command to comply with filter and weight policies.
  3. Manager has a new and improved algorithm for finding affinity rule contradictions called “Unified Affinity Group Algorithm”.
  4. Manager will enforce affinity rules one by one, starting with the violated affinity rule which consists of most VMs.
  5. Manager’s strategy to enforce affinity rules in case of positive groups is to migrate VMs from the hypervisor that has the minimum number of VMs from the same affinity group to the one that has the most VMs(Taking into account the Scheduler policies. Sometimes VMs might be migrated to a different host if the scheduler thinks it’s better).
  6. Affinity rules only work for clusters with version >= 3.5.

Cluster parameters override

Cluster parameters override feature allows to configure the ‘emulated machine’ and ‘cpu model’ parameters for each VM separately instead of relying on the cluster default.

Other features

For a detailed description of the above features and a complete list of the features included in this release please see oVirt 3.6 features list

Please note that All-In-One setup is now deprecated in 3.6 and will be dropped in 4.0. You’re strongly encouraged to use Hosted Engine setup instead of All-In-One.

Known Issues

  • If engine-setup is stuck when starting ovirt-websocket-proxy manually stop the service and re-start it when engine-setup finishes.
  • If cluster is updated to compatibility version 3.6 while hosts that have not been upgraded, i.e with emulated machine flags that do not match cluster compatibility version 3.6, you might end up with incorrect emulated machine flag on the cluster. As a result, you will not be able to run VMs. Possible workarounds would be to to reset the emulated machine on the cluster (requires putting all the hosts into maintenance) or disable the host-plug memory feature in the database.
  • Host network QoS will not work for vlan tagged traffic. The QoS definitions can be set on the hypervisors, but actual tagged traffic will not be classified correctly hence not shaped. Host network QoS will work correctly on untagged networks. This is already fixed in http://gerrit.ovirt.org/#/q/I667a9f38f4314da309685f6ba247f705a2e9c23e and merged to 3.6.1.

Distribution specific issues

Fedora 22

  • on hosts you need to add following line to /etc/ssh/sshd_config

    KexAlgorithms curve25519-sha256@libssh.org,ecdh-sha2-nistp256,ecdh-sha2-nistp384,ecdh-sha2-nistp521,diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha256,diffie-hellman-group14-sha1,diffie-hellman-group1-sha1

and then execute

  # systemctl restart sshd

before adding the host to the engine.

RHEL 7.1 - CentOS 7.1 and similar

  • NFS startup on EL7.1 requires manual startup of rpcbind.service before running engine setup in order to avoid

    [ INFO  ] Restarting nfs services [ ERROR ] Failed to execute stage ’Closing up’: Command ’/bin/systemctl’ failed to execute

  • v2v feature on EL 7.1 requires manual installation of virt-v2v packages. See for more details. This workaround will not be needed once EL 7.2 is out

RHEL 6.7 - CentOS 6.7 and similar

  • Upgrade of All-in-One on EL6 is not supported in 3.6. VDSM and the packages requiring it are not built anymore for EL6

Install / Upgrade from previous versions

Fedora / CentOS / RHEL

In order to install it on a clean system, you need to run (see also Known Issues above):

# yum install http://resources.ovirt.org/pub/yum-repo/ovirt-release36.rpm

If you are upgrading from a previous version, you may have the ovirt-release35 package already installed on your system. You can then install ovirt-release36.rpm as in a clean install side-by-side.

Once ovirt-release36 package is installed, you will have the ovirt-3.6 repository and any other repository needed for satisfying dependencies enabled by default.

If you’re installing this release on a clean host, you should read our Quick Start Guide.

If you are upgrading from oVirt < 3.5.0, you must first upgrade to oVirt 3.5.0 or later. Please see oVirt 3.5.5 Release Notes for upgrade instructions.

For upgrading now you just need to execute:

  # yum update "ovirt-engine-setup*"
  # engine-setup

Upgrade path from Fedora 20 oVirt 3.5 to Fedora 22 oVirt 3.6

Please refer to the following threads on users mailing list:

Debian Jessie

The support for Debian Jessie is highly experimental and implemented as a best effort feature. In order to enable Debian Jessie repositories you need to manually edit /etc/apt/sources.list adding:

  # vdsm
  deb `[`http://resources.ovirt.org/pub/ovirt-3.6/debian/`](http://resources.ovirt.org/pub/ovirt-3.6/debian/)` binary/
  deb-src `[`http://resources.ovirt.org/pub/ovirt-3.6/debian/`](http://resources.ovirt.org/pub/ovirt-3.6/debian/)` source/

oVirt Hosted Engine

If you’re going to install oVirt as Hosted Engine on a clean system please follow Hosted_Engine_Howto#Fresh_Install guide.

If you’re upgrading an existing Hosted Engine setup, please follow Hosted_Engine_Howto#Upgrade_Hosted_Engine guide.

oVirt Live

A new oVirt Live ISO is available:

http://resources.ovirt.org/pub/ovirt-3.6/iso/ovirt-live/

oVirt Node

oVirt Node is now released continuously, the download link can be found in the oVirt Node Release section
