OpenStack Staging-Ovirt Driver: global name \’sdk\’ is not defined

python-snek

Getting Started

The staging-ovirt driver allows OpenStack to easily use ovirt/RHV virtual machines as overcloud nodes.   For those of us running virtualized OpenStack labs, it’s a huge step forward – as we either were previously having to hack our way around pxe_ssh or vmbc. Neither was a great solution.

In order to use the staging-ovirt driver , I first I needed to configure the undercloud to use the staging-ovirt driver. See undercloud.conf below.

[DEFAULT]
local_ip = 10.1.98.2/24
undercloud_public_vip = 10.1.98.3
undercloud_admin_vip = 10.1.98.4
local_interface = eth1
masquerade_network = 10.1.98.0/24
dhcp_start = 10.1.98.100
dhcp_end = 10.1.98.120
network_cidr = 10.1.98.0/24
network_gateway = 10.1.98.2
inspection_iprange = 10.1.98.130,10.1.98.150
inspection_runbench = false
undercloud_debug = false
store_events = false
enabled_hardware_types = staging-ovirt
inspection_enable_uefi = false

Then create an instackenv.json.  In the example below pm_addr is the IP of my local RHV manager.

"arch": "x86_64",
"cpu": "1",
"disk": "10",
"mac": [
"00:1a:4a:16:01:5a"
],
"memory": "1024",
"name": "ospd13-ctrl01",
"pm_addr": "10.1.99.10",
"pm_password": "redhat",
"pm_type": "staging-ovirt",
"pm_user": "admin@internal",
"pm_vm_name": "ospd13-ctrl01",
"capabilities": "profile:control,boot_option:local"

You should then be able to import your nodes.

openstack overcloud node import instackenv.json

Troubleshooting

Note that I ran into an error importing my nodes. Error shown below.

[{u’result’: u’Node 09dfefec-e5c3-42c4-93d0-45fb44ce37a8 did not reach state “manageable”, the state is “enroll”, error: Failed to get power state for node 09dfefec-e5c3-42c4-93d0-45fb44ce37a8. Error: global name \’sdk\’ is not defined’}, {u’result’: u’Node 59dce2eb-3aea-41f9-aec2-3f13deece30b did not reach state “manageable”, the state is “enroll”, error: Failed to get power state for node 59dce2eb-3aea-41f9-aec2-3f13deece30b.

Error: global name \’sdk\’ is not defined’}]

Help was found here.

Apparently I was missing a package. I needed to yum install the package shown below and restart ironic-conductor

sudo yum -y install python-ovirt-engine-sdk4.x86_64
sudo systemctl restart openstack-ironic-conductor.service
