Install / Upgrade from previous versions

Fedora / CentOS / RHEL

In order to install it on a clean system, you need to install

# yum install http://resources.ovirt.org/pub/yum-repo/ovirt-release40.rpm

and then follow our Quick Start Guide.

If you're upgrading from a previous release on Enterprise Linux 7 you just need to execute:

  # yum install http://resources.ovirt.org/pub/yum-repo/ovirt-release40.rpm
  # yum update "ovirt-engine-setup*"
  # engine-setup

Upgrade on Fedora 22 and Enterprise Linux 6 is not supported and you should follow our Migration Guide in order to migrate to Enterprise Linux 7 or Fedora 23.

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.

Known issues

  • BZ 1297835 Host install fails on Fedora 23 due to lack of dep on python2-dnf
    On Fedora >= 23 dnf package manager with python 3 is used by default while ovirt-host-deploy is executed by ovirt-engine using python2. This cause Host install to fail on Fedora >= 23 due to lack of python2-dnf in the default environment. As workaround please install manually python2-dnf on the host before trying to add it to the engine.

What's New in 4.0.0?

Enhancement

oVirt Engine

Team: UX
  • BZ 1224423 [RFE] eliminate pushing duplicated strings to Zanata due to resource files inheritance
  • BZ 1172390 [RFE] GUI should have a field/column chooser in the UI
    Data tables in WebAdmin UI now support "column control" context menu, triggered by right-clicking the table header area.

    This context menu allows controlling visibility and position of individual columns. This is useful for users who don't need to see all columns or want to re-order columns to their liking.
Team: Virt
  • BZ 1347754 [RFE] [moVirt] Android mobile oVirt client
    A mobile client for oVirt is provided for Android devices, compatible with oVirt/RHEV 3.5+ using REST API
  • BZ 1252426 [RFE] Migration improvements (convergence, bandwidth utilization)
    Tab 'Resilience policy' in Cluster dialogs was renamed to 'Migration'. The content of the tab remains part of 'Migration' dialog.
  • BZ 1301104 [RFE] Automate configuration of host's boot parameters to support VFIO passthrough
    In the past, any modification to kernel command line had to be executed and maintained by administrators. The process was even more difficult in ovirt-node/RHEVH, where the filesystem had to be (manually) remounted as writable to even do the change.

    This feature adds new UI selection when adding or editing a host that allows for kernel line modifications directly from web administration. These changes are then maintained by oVirt/RHEV.
    Supported modifications are supported as checkboxes, but we also allow free text entry for more complex modifications (e.g. pci-stubbing GPU devices etc.).
  • BZ 1273399 [RFE] Support for reporting Docker containers active on the Virtual Machine
    Feature: Reporting running docker containers from within guest operating systems managed by oVirt in the oVirt Webadmin Portal

    With this feature the webadmin portal reports now the id, image, executed command, state and the names of the container.
  • BZ 1234394 [RFE] VM Pools allow stateful VMs
    Stateful VM Pools feature was added.

    VMs from a stateful VM Pool are always started in stateful mode. The state of the VM is preserved even when VM is passed to a different user.
  • BZ 1277569 [RFE] Atomic guest OS support
    Support for RHEL Atomic Host as a configurable system has been added to the RHEVM WebAdmin and User Portal
  • BZ 1305900 use different bus for cdrom when q35 chipset is used
    Added possibility to configure different bus interfaces (IDE, SCSI, SATA) for different VM chipsets. By default, SATA interface is selected to be used for q35 chipset.
  • BZ 1054070 [RFE] add ability to cold restart of a VM when it run by Run Once and reboots
    we wanted to improve the experience for users doing guest OS installations, when they want to use an installation CD and after finishing with OS install the CD is not used anymore and should be ejected.
    The suggested way is to use Run Once dialog and attach the installation CD, and use "Start in paused mode" and/or "Enable boot menu" to allow you to select the boot media (CD) once. For this purpose the layout was change a bit and these options are now right next to the Attach CD dropdown
  • BZ 1150239 [RFE] [pre-4.0] Model memory volumes as disks in the database/backend
  • BZ 1194989 [RFE] Provide option to remove / replace base template while template sub-version exists
    Previously it was only possible to remove base template if there were to template sub-version based on it.

    These patches allows to remove a base template even if there are some template sub-version based on it. The sub-version with lowest version number become the next base template for all other sub-version. Version number are not touched. I.e. Version number of base template no longer needs to be 1.
  • BZ 1296558 v2v:sort the list of VMs by name
    Feature:
    In the "Import Virtual Machine(s)" dialog both lists of VMs are now sorted in an alphabetically order.
    Reason:
    VMs listed under "virtual machines on source"/"virtual machines to import" were not listed by any logical order.
    Result:
    VMs listed under "virtual machines on source"/"virtual machines to import" are now sorted.
    in an alphabetically order by VM name (the same order as displayed in the Storage->VM Import list).
    Lists remain sorted even after dragging VMs from list to list.
  • BZ 1304346 [RFE] Prepare a method to compute (guess) the required memory for starting a VM
  • BZ 1264767 [RFE] Enforce a specific(latest) spice client version
    Feature: enforce minimal version of remote-viewer

    Enforces the minimal version of remote-viewer to versions:
    windows: 2.0-128
    rhel7: 2.0-6
    rhel6: 2.0-14

    If the remote-viewer is older than the specified one, remote-viewer will show a link to documentation describing how to update.
  • BZ 1302657 [RFE] Switch from vnc/cirrus to vnc/vga
    Feature: Default VNC graphics is VGA in 4.0

    Imported VMs with VNC/Cirrus and originating in previous compatibility versions are automatically upgraded to VNC/VGA.

    The user can still switch the VNC graphics to Cirrus if needed.

    No matter of this change, the QXL shall be preffered as default graphics if the guest OS supports it.
  • BZ 1121653 [RFE] "Open in full screen" checkbox should be controlled by a global setting in "rhevm-config"
    Feature: Configure default for Console's Open In Fullscreen

    Reason: Open In Fullscreen default behavior shall be configurable by user.

    Result: Using engine-config, the user can set weather the console's window is going to be open in full screen by default.
    The value can be set independently for Administrtion Portal, Basic User portal, Extended User Portal.
    Console retrieved via REST shares setting with the Administration Portal.

    Default can be set via engine-config by setting FullScreenWebadminDefault, FullScreenUserportalBasicDefault, FullScreenUserportalExtendedDefault options.
  • BZ 1208860 Template versions have non-unique name in Disk tab
    Feature: The Disk Tab displays template version along with its name.

    Reason: There was confusion in listing of template disks, since just the name of a template was displayed.

    Result: Improved user experience. User can simply decide which template version the disk belongs to.
  • BZ 1253710 [RFE] Add template methods to work with Cloud-Init/Sysprep settings through RHEVM API
    Cloud-init and sysprep are now can be added via REST API
  • BZ 1316077 [RFE] Mention the vcenter hierarchy at Data Center option when import guest from vmware in rhevm
    There is an '?' (question mark) near the data-center field that explain that folder can be in data-center as well:
    e.g:
    mydatacenter
    or
    mydatacenter/myfolder
  • BZ 1273025 User portal's permission tab offers to add permissions which cannot be added
    Feature: User portal lists only roles which can be actually assigned.

    Reason: All roles were displayed causing user's confusion.

    Result: Improved user experience.
  • BZ 1313295 [RFE] noVNC: Include VM name in the web page title instead of "noVNC" title.
    Feature: Include VM name into the title of both noVNC and SPICE HTML5 windows.

    Reason: Since the noVNC always had a title "noVNC", it was hard to know which VM is this console connected to. The same goes for the SPICE HTML5 window which had a title "Spice Javascript Client".

    Result: The title of the noVNC window is now:
    <vm name> - noVNC
    The title of the SPICE HTML5 window is now:
    <vm name> - Spice Javascript Client
  • BZ 1310804 [RFE] Override instance type on VmPools in Python-SDK
    Feature:
    add instance type support for REST API for vm pools

    Reason:
    It can be set in webadmin/userportal but it was missing from the REST API and from the SDKs

    Result:
    Now it is possible to set the instance type also from the REST API/SDKs
  • BZ 1285446 Random sub-template of given name is used to create VM Pool via REST
    Feature: The latest template version is used within VM creation via REST when just the template name (or Blank) is provided.

    Reason: Prior this enhancement, the template version had to be specified in the REST create VM command explicitly or a random version was selected otherwise.

    Result: The user can rely on default template version selection when creating VM via REST.
Team: Storage
  • BZ 1317253 [RFE] Disk image uploader in the GUI
    This feature is an addition for the webadmin, and it lets users to upload VM disks from their PC to oVirt's storage, and use it with oVirt's VMs.
    For doing that, the user needs to press the "upload" button, which is located in both Storage->Disks tab, and Disks main tab.
    The user will need to choose a file for uploading, enter the disk's virtual size, and press "ok". The chosen file needs to be a QEMU compatible image file, that can be connected to QEMU VMs.
    Note that ovirt-imageio-proxy project needs to be installed alongside ovirt-engine for this feature to work.
  • BZ 1142762 [RFE][Tracker][CodeChange] Refactor Disks' class hierarchy
  • BZ 1317434 [RFE] Implement live merge of auto-generated snapshot and backing file after live storage migration
    Feature:
    Remove auto-generated snapshot after LSM

    Reason:
    During LSM, an auto-generated snapshot is created and it has to be manually removed after LSM

    Result:
    The auto-generated snapshot is automatically deleted after LSM
  • BZ 1138139 [RFE][ImportDomain] Adding a button to import floating and unregistered disks
    Feature:
    Register unregistered floating disks through the GUI.

    Reason:
    Since floating disks are not part of any VM/Template, the user can't register floating disks explicitly from the GUI but only from the REST.

    Result:
    Added a subtab in the GUI called "Import Disk" which support the ability toe register a floating disk into the setup.

    A storage domain also supports a functionality called "Scan Disks" which scans the Storage Domain for unregistered floating disks that are not reflected in the setup.
    This can be much helpful for managing underline copies of disks from an external Storage Domain.
  • BZ 1282764 [RFE][scale] Visualize the number of queued SPM calls on RHEV-M in the logs
  • BZ 1275182 [RFE]Email notification when the number of LVs in SD are reaching/more than 300
    Previously, when the number of LVs in a storage domain reached the recommended maximum, we logged it and a message was shown in the events pane.
    Now, one can register to the event notifier and get an email when it happens.
  • BZ 1336214 Implement live merge of auto-generated snapshot and backing file after LSM fails
    This update ensures that the auto-generated snapshot that is created during live storage migration (LSM) is automatically deleted if LSM fails.
  • BZ 1271988 [RFE] Add support for qcow2 disks, adding the ability to choose qcow2 disk format when creating a VM from template.
    Feature:
    When creating a Vm from a template, the user is able to choose the Volume Format of the disks : either Raw or QCOW2.

    Reason:
    The user wants to be able to specify the volume format of the disks when creating a template based VM.

    Result:
    When creating a Vm from a template, the user is able to choose the Volume Format of the disks : either Raw or QCOW2.
    The Allocation Policy is now hidden.
    If the Template Provisioning is Thin, the volume format of the disks will be marked as QCOW2 and the user won't be able to change it.
    If the Template Provisioning is Clone, the user will be able to choose the volume format (QCOW2 or Raw)
  • BZ 1279398 [RFE] [admin portal] Sort ISOs from ISO domain in lists in natural (version) sort order
    Feature:
    Sort ISO domain files while taking into consideration version numbers.

    Reason:
    Up until now, the files were ordered alphabetically, i.e a file named RHEV_3.5.10.iso used to come before a file named RHEV_3.5.5.iso.
    This feature sorts the files alphabetically, but while taking into consideration the version numbers.

    Result:
    A file named RHEV_3.5.10.iso will come after a file named RHEV_3.5.5.iso and not before it.
  • BZ 1271698 Change terminology from "virtual machine disk" to "virtual disk"
  • BZ 1176217 [RFE] Rename "Edit" button in Storage Domains tab to "Manage Domain"
  • BZ 1240954 [RFE][webadmin-portal] Cannot override template's name when importing an image as template from glance
    It is now possible to specify a custom name for the template when importing a Glance disk through the Web Admin portal.
  • BZ 1308350 [SCALE] Improve GetDeviceList verb call through the REST API to work in scale.
    Adding support for skipping the LUN status check in the REST API.
    Checking the status of the LUN is a heavyweight operation and this data is not always needed by the user.

    The default is true for backward compatibility.
    The parameter report_status is available both on getting the list of a host storages or a specific host storage
Team: Gluster
  • BZ 1205641 [RFE][HC] - Monitor if self-heal is ongoing on a gluster volume
    Feature: Monitor Self-Heal for gluster volumes.

    Reason: For a replicate volume, the engine should monitor if self-heal is ongoing on a volume. There should be an indication in the UI for self-heal activity.

    Result: Ovirt will monitor the unsycned entries(which needs healing) in all the replicate volumes. Unsynced entries will be shown in the bricks sub per brick with expected time to heal the entries. There will be a warning icon added to the volume and bricks status column when there is a unsynced entry.
  • BZ 1213309 [RFE][HC] - Support replace brick from UI
    Feature: Support replacing brick from engine for replicate type gluster volumes

    Reason: Required to perform maintenance of gluster volumes/host from UI
  • BZ 1182363 [RFE][HC] - when creating a glusterfs volume unsupported volume types should be hidden in the downstream product
    Feature: Show only supported volume types while managing volumes from engine

    Reason: We do not want users to end up with unsupported configurations
Team: Infra
  • BZ 1296274 [RFE] Login page have a configurable default
    A new config variable 'ovirt.engine.aaa.authn.default.profile' has been added to authn configuration files. Adding this to authn configuration file for selected profile and setting the value to true, will ensure that the first time a user is redirected to the login page the profile marked as default will be selected from the drop down list.

    ovirt.engine.aaa.authn.default.profile=true

    ovirt-engine service needs to be restarted after adding this value to selected authn configuration files.

    If no authn extension has been configured to be the default profile, then internal authn is used as default.
  • BZ 1284903 [RFE] Command Infrastructure - support flows
  • BZ 1318746 [RFE] Sessions tab: improve usability
    New fields have been added to session tab in webadmin to show the client ip address, the session start time and the session last access time.
  • BZ 1197449 [RFE] add source_ip to the sessions table
    New column 'Source IP' was added into Active Users Sessions view, to be able to identify client host from which users connects to engine
  • BZ 1092744 [RFE][AAA] Introduce uniform login services
    A single sign on module has been added that authenticates the user once and allows access to webadmin and userportal. Signing off from one portal closes the session on SSO and the user is logged out of all portals.
  • BZ 1199933 [RFE] Add Fencing of Ilo3/4 via ssh fencing to RHEV-M
    Feature:
    Add Fencing of Ilo3/4 via ssh fencing

    Reason:
    Customer requirement

    Result:
    Fencing of Ilo3/4 via ssh is supported
  • BZ 1346218 Include the API HTML documentation
    Feature:

    Include the API HTML documentation in the server.

    Reason:

    Currently the API HTML documentation is automatically generated from the specification of the API, but it isn't available in the live server, using it requires going to a different web site.

    Result:

    The API HTML documentation will be available from any live engine, from the /ovirt-engine/api/model URL, so that users won't need to go to a different server to obtain it.
  • BZ 1322940 [RFE] AAA - Make Kerberos work with Java Authentication Framework
    Provide a way how to configure gssapi using ticket cache for authz pool.
  • BZ 1083661 [RFE] display cluster compatibility version for host
    'Cluster Compatibility Version' field, which shows cluster version supported by the host, were added into Hosts view, General Tab, Info subtab
  • BZ 1037844 [RFE][AAA] Allow the user to change an expired password as a part of the User Portal login process
    Previously if the user password has expired they needed to be set on the ldap server. Now there is a new capability added to the ldap and jdbc extensions to enable changing passwords from the front end in a new change password screen.
  • BZ 1223732 [RFE] Add authz provider column for user session management
    Feature:
    User session management.

    Reason:
    There was no authz information for users in session management table, so we were not able to distinguish between two users with the same name from two different profiles (domains).

    Result:
    In session management table, users can now see authz provider name where users belongs.
  • BZ 1250102 [RFE] - Show user/group icons in search results for users
  • BZ 1290737 [AAA] add credentials modify sequence
  • BZ 1273041 [RFE] extend Permission tab with list of 'My groups'
    The add permissions dialog now has a new radio button "My Groups" which lists the currently logged in user's groups. The user can use this option to grant permissions to other users in his group.
  • BZ 1060791 [RFE] Cleanup, remove IP information guest_info section from VM resource
Team: i18n
  • BZ 1110577 [RFE] introduce Italian
    The product is now translated also to Italian.
Team: Integration
  • BZ 1318580 [RFE] restore: ensure that 3.6 backup can be restored on clean 4.0
    Feature:

    Allow engine-backup of version 4.0 to restore backups taken on 3.6.

    Reason:

    engine 4.0 does not support el6. Users that want to upgrade from 3.6 on el6 to 4.0 on el7 have to do this by backing up the engine on 3.6/el6 and restore on 4.0/el7.

    Result:

    Using this flow, it's possible to migrate a 3.6/el6 setup to 4.0/el7:

    On the existing engine machine run:
    1. engine-backup –mode=backup –file=engine-3.6.bck –log=backup.log

    On a new el7 machine:
    2. Install engine 4.0, including dwh if it was set up on 3.6.
    3. Copy engine-3.6.bck to the el7 machine
    4. engine-backup –mode=restore –file=engine-3.6.bck –log=restore.log –provision-db –no-restore-permissions
    5. engine-setup

    Check engine-backup documentation for other options, including using remote databases, extra grants/permissions, etc.

    Notes:

    1. As of writing this doc-text, Reports is not built for 4.0. If/when it will be, need to update.

  • BZ 1216888 [RFE] engine-backup should not depend on the engine
    In order to allow backup of machines running ovirt services, but not running ovirt-engine, the engine-backup script does not depends on ovirt-engine anymore.
  • BZ 1318665 [RFE] - make DWH required for engine.
  • BZ 1267508 [RFE] Replace python-cheetah with python-jinja2 within ovirt-engine
    Replaced python-cheetah with python-jinja2 as template-engine for services configuration files, as python-cheetah didn't receive updates since 2012 and is not available on RHEL 7.2.
  • BZ 1218674 [RFE][TEXT] - During restore alert user that objects might be missing in the system afterwards.

Team: SLA
  • BZ 1254818 [RFE] : Need VM affinity rule for "hypervisor pools" within a cluster
    Feature:

    Affinity label support was added to REST aPI for hosts and VMs. A VM can only be scheduled on a host that is labelled with all the affinity labels the VM has. Any extra labels on the host make no difference.

    Reason:

    There are many use cases where a sub-cluster is needed. Server locality, licensing agreements (number of nodes with certain software), special hardware…

    Result:

    It is possible to use REST API to manipulate affinity labels and assign them to hosts and VMs.
  • BZ 1167262 [RFE][Tracker] Hosted-Engine: allow to deploy additional hosts from webadmin portal
    Feature: Deploy or Undeploy additinonal HE hosts via the engine

    Reason: 1. ease of management, deployment 2.make the deployment more scriptable 3. hold a single source of info on the cluster members (specifically host ids) and the deployment attributes.

    Result: After the HE setup is passed bootstrap, i.e HE is imported into the engine, it is possible to add/remove the HE functionality to a host using both the UI or the REST API
  • BZ 1201482 Storage QoS is not applying on a Live VM/disk
    Feature:

    MOM now knows how to read the IO QoS settings from metadata and set the respective ioTune limits to a running VM's disk.

    Reason:

    This feature is needed to properly support disk hotplug and changes to disk QoS for an already running VM.

    Result:

    MOM properly processes disk QoS updates and the limits are updated.
  • BZ 1308861 [RFE] Indicate which host is running the HE VM
    A visual indicator has been added to the Hosts tab of the Administration Portal to identify the host running the self-hosted engine Manager virtual machine in self-hosted engine installations.
Team: Network
  • BZ 1314375 [RFE] - Provide external network partners API
    This feature introduces changes to the existing Openstack Network Providers allowing to add any external provider which implements the Openstack API.
    The external providers must implement the Openstack Neutron rest API, which is used by the engine to communicate with the provider.
    The external provider does not use the Neutron agent as the virtual interface driver implementation on the host. Instead the virtual interface driver should be provided by the implementor of the external provider.

    A reference implementation of an external provider and a virtual interface driver is available at: https://github.com/mmirecki/ovirt-provider-mock

    The feature also adds a "read-only" feature to network providers. This prevents the user from changing the provider from ovirt. No networks or subnets can be added/modified/deleted.

    The feature page for this bug: http://www.ovirt.org/develop/release-management/features/external-network-provider/
  • BZ 1317441 [RFE] Allow MAC Anti-Spoofing per interface instead of globally
  • BZ 1277495 remove the pre-3.6 setupnetworks api

VDSM

Team: Virt
  • BZ 1252426 [RFE] Migration improvements (convergence, bandwidth utilization)
    Tab 'Resilience policy' in Cluster dialogs was renamed to 'Migration'. The content of the tab remains part of 'Migration' dialog.
  • BZ 1301104 [RFE] Automate configuration of host's boot parameters to support VFIO passthrough
    In the past, any modification to kernel command line had to be executed and maintained by administrators. The process was even more difficult in ovirt-node/RHEVH, where the filesystem had to be (manually) remounted as writable to even do the change.

    This feature adds new UI selection when adding or editing a host that allows for kernel line modifications directly from web administration. These changes are then maintained by oVirt/RHEV.
    Supported modifications are supported as checkboxes, but we also allow free text entry for more complex modifications (e.g. pci-stubbing GPU devices etc.).
  • BZ 1270581 [RFE] Hostdev_passthrough: support SCSI FC tape device
    Previously, oVirt/RHEV only allowed hostdev passthrough of USB and PCI devices. To assign storage cards directly to VM, users had to assign the whole adapter as PCI device. The problem with this approach is that PCI passthrough has specific hardware requirements.

    This feature allows administrators to passthrough a LUN directly to a VM, allowing for full set of SG commands - meaning tapes, changers and anything speaking SCSI protocol can be assigned directly, without specific hardware requirements (except for assigned device itself).
  • BZ 1298120 [RFE] Support for hooks in the guest agent
    Doc Text in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1287544
  • BZ 1273399 [RFE] Support for reporting Docker containers active on the Virtual Machine

    Reason: RHEV can consume FCoE block storage. Depending on the FCoE card on the hosts, special configuration may be needed as described in https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/7/html/Storage_Administration_Guide/fcoe-config.html

    Result: to enable fcoe on a NIC, attach a network to it, and set the "fcoe" network custom property to enable=yes[,dcb=yes][,auto_vlan=yes]
  • BZ 1334748 [RFE] Add hook to handle FCOE storages
    Feature: configure fcoe on host NIC

    Reason: RHEV can consume FCoE block storage. Depending on the FCoE card on the hosts, special configuration may be needed as described in https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/7/html/Storage_Administration_Guide/fcoe-config.html

    Result: to enable fcoe on a NIC, attach a network to it, and set the "fcoe" network custom property to enable=yes[,dcb=yes][,auto_vlan=yes]
  • BZ 1234328 [RFE] SR-IOV –> add support for Hotplug/unplug of VFs
    Feature: hotplug (and hot unplug) SR-IOV vNICs to running VM

    Reason: RHEV-3.6 introduced passthrough of SR-IOV VFs to newly-created VMs, but was unable to attach such a VF to a running VM

    Result: RHEV-4.0 allows to add and to remove VFs
Team: SLA
  • BZ 1201482 Storage QoS is not applying on a Live VM/disk
    Feature:

    MOM now knows how to read the IO QoS settings from metadata and set the respective ioTune limits to a running VM's disk.

    Reason:

    This feature is needed to properly support disk hotplug and changes to disk QoS for an already running VM.

    Result:

    MOM properly processes disk QoS updates and the limits are updated.

oVirt Hosted Engine Setup

Team: Integration
  • BZ 1324923 [RFE] hosted-engine –vm-status should be able to output the raw response
    Feature: hosted-engine –vm-status should be able to output the raw response

    Reason:

    Result:
  • BZ 1324921 [RFE] hosted-engine should have a flag to check whether the engine is deployed
    Feature: hosted-engine should have a flag to check whether the engine is deployed

    Reason:

    Result:
  • BZ 1228641 [RFE] Switch from XML-RPC to JSON-RPC API for HE setup
    XmlRpc is going to be deprecated by JsonRpc. Moving to the new API.

oVirt Hosted Engine HA

Team: SLA
  • BZ 1324673 Include hostname in ovirt-ha-agent emails
    Feature: Include hosted-engine hostname in ovirt-ha-agent emails

    Reason: The e-mails were not cleared about the hosted engine host.

    Result: The email body will look like that:
    Hosted engine host: {hostname} changed state: {detail}.

oVirt Engine DWH

  • BZ 1328805 [RFE] Add option to run DWH in a "minimal" mode for collecting data for the dashboards
  • BZ 1302598 [RFE] Add to ovirt_engine_history views that simplifies users usage of dwh views
    Feature:
    Added for each time period (sample/hourly/daily) views that join the configuration views with statistics views of the entities it relates to, like network interface and disks.

    Reason:
    In order to simplify the use of views for the users.

    Result:
    3 new views for vms and 3 new views for hosts.
  • BZ 1324440 [RFE] Add log message with the Application Settings
    Feature:
    A log message with the dwh application settings, that can be updated by the user, was added to the log file.
    The log is added each time the dwh is started.

    Reason:
    Add better way to debug and monitor the dwh settings.

    Result:
  • BZ 1302611 [RFE] - Upgrade the Talend to latest version that supports OpenJDK 1.8.
  • BZ 1285788 [RFE] Enable logging of dwh ETL process in debug mode
    Feature:
    We added a DEBUG mode for logging of Sampling, Hourly and Daily jobs time.

    In order to start DEBUG mode, you should add a conf file and set DWH_AGGREGATION_DEBUG=true.

    Reason:
    In order to debug the Sampling, Hourly and Daily jobs.

    Result:
    The ovirt-engine-dwhd.log will include the start and wnd of each job.

    This is usually for qa only.
Team: Integration

Deprecated Functionality

oVirt Engine

Team: Virt
  • BZ 1316560 [RFE] remove the plugin support for spice connection
    The Spice plugin is not supported in Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 4.0. The 'Native' spice connection should be used as a replacement.

    If 'Plugin' is set as the default for Spice connections by user (via engine-config), it is automatically switched to 'Native' by calling engine-setup during upgrade.
  • BZ 1337055 [RFE] deprecate Legacy USB
    The Legacy USB option has been deprecated and will be removed in the next Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization version. The functionality has been superseded by "Native" with the UsbDk drivers (available since Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.6).
Team: Storage
  • BZ 1320515 Remove deprecated api/vms//move</b>
    The "/vms//move" API has been removed after being deprecated in Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.1.
Team: UX
  • BZ 1236976 [RFE] UIPlugins should not use restapi http session
    The user interface (UI) code is now aligned with the Manager's SSO infrastructure by dropping reliance on the REST webapp's HTTP session mechanism in favor of using SSO tokens.

    This impacts, and potentially breaks all UI plugins because the "RestApiSessionAcquired" callback has been removed.

    From now on, UI plugins should use the new "api.ssoToken" function when authenticating Manager (e.g. REST API) requests:

    var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
    xhr.open('GET', 'http://example.com/ovirt-engine/api');
    xhr.setRequestHeader('Authorization', 'Bearer ' + api.ssoToken());
    xhr.setRequestHeader('Accept', 'application/json');
    xhr.addEventListener('load', function () {
    // response loaded OK, parse JSON data
    var data = JSON.parse(this.responseText);
    });
    xhr.send();

    The UI plugins no longer need to use session-specific request headers like "Prefer:persistent-auth" and "JSESSIONID:xxx", which simplifies their code.
Team: Integration
  • BZ 1282798 Drop All-in-One support
    All-In-One setup support has been dropped in favor of Hosted Engine.

oVirt Engine DWH

Team: DWH
  • BZ 1323605 [RFE] Remove collection from dwh_disk_vm_map_history_view
    The collection from the Manager view dwh_disk_vm_map_history_view was replaced by the collection from dwh_vm_device_history_view on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.1, but was not removed to ensure legacy compatibility.

    In Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 4.0, legacy compatibility will be for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.6 only. Therefore, the following has now been removed:
    - The collection of disks_vm_map.
    - disks_vm_map table from the history database.
    - dwh_vm_disk_configuration_history_view from the Manager database.
  • BZ 1300328 [RFE] Remove collection of data centers statistics
    Removed data center statistic tables and views which provided meaningless status statistics.

oVirt Image Uploader

Team: Integration
  • BZ 1306637 ovirt-image-uploader should warn it's deprecated and will be removed in next version
    The ovirt-image-uploader tool has been deprecated in Red Hat Virtualization 4.0, and will be removed in Red Hat Virtualization 4.1.

oVirt Host Deploy

Team: Integration
  • BZ 1314790 Drop ovirt-host-deploy-offline
    The ovirt-host-deploy-offline package will no longer be available in Red Hat Virtualization 4.0

Release Note

oVirt Engine

Team: UX
  • BZ 1285432 [RFE] Expose global alert messages via UI plugin API
    New UI plugin API function showAlert has been added, allowing UI plugins to show "global" alert boxes in top center part of the WebAdmin UI.

    This can be useful when a UI plugin wants to inform the user about some important event. The showAlert function supports different alert types (danger, warning, success, info) as well as optional auto-hide after given time period.
