2017-08-10 02:49:23 +0200 answered a question Run a cmd after host name reboot

Cloudbase-Init has actions performed at various stages (called plugins). The one that sets the hostname (and needs a reboot because that's what Windows requires unfortunately) comes before the userdata or the localscripts ones.

If you are using OpenStack, I would recommend to pass a userdata PowerShell script that joins the domain, e.g. using djoin.exe:

#ps1
& djoin.exe /requestODJ /loadfile <blob_txt_file> /windowspath $ENV:SystemRoot /localos

2017-07-28 01:55:23 +0200 commented question Avoid Reboot After Cloning Volume?

The reason why a reboot is performed by cloudbase-init, is that Windows requires a reboot after changing the hostname. Disabling the hostname plugin avoids the reboot.

2017-05-16 22:14:20 +0200 answered a question SetUserPasswordPlugin failed with error 'HTTP Error 403: Forbidden

As by Nova API documentation, the service returns 202 in case of success or 409 when the password is already set. A 403 error leads towards a configuration issue on the Nova API side. Can you check your Nova API configuration (policy.json in particular) to ensure that posting passwords is allowed?

At a first glance, we just need to add support for "phone_home" and a NoCloud metadata service for fetching the userdata, the rest is there. Would you be interested in testing it as soon as we have a patch?

2017-03-08 14:00:07 +0200 answered a question can`t see the Windows hostname on Controller Node

Hi, can you please post the nova-compute.log file in a pastebin and link it here? By default it's in C:\OpenStack\Logs

Additionally, at the moment the OpenStack community (and us) supports only the last releases starting with Mitaka. The Hyper-V installer version needs to match the controller’s one, so e.g. a Kilo Hyper-V won’t work with a Juno controller. I would recommend to update to a newer release like Newton if possible.

2017-03-07 13:08:00 +0200 answered a question V-Magine install fail "A start job is running for dev-mapp.."

The LIS team managed to reproduce the issue on an updated vanilla RHEL / CentOS 7.3 and confirmed that it's a bug with the latest RHEL / CentOS kernel update that just rolled out (see issue: https://github.com/LIS/lis-next/issue...). While this is being taken care of on the LIS side, the fastest workaround is to revert to the previous kernel at the end of "install-rdo.sh", before v-magine installs LIS. Updates will follow as soon as we finish testing the workaround.

Updated LIS (Linux Integration Services) components are needed as the ones that come with the RHEL / CentOS kernel don't fully support Windows Server 2016 / Windows 10.

Update:

Reverting to the previous kernel solves the issue. This can be done by adding the following at the end of resources/install-rdo.sh :

# This is needed due to a bug in LIS with kernel-3.10.0-514.10.2.el7
exec_with_retry 5 0 /usr/bin/yum install -y kernel-3.10.0-514.6.2.el7

An updated v-magine.zip package with this workaround will be released as soon as tests are done.

The updated kernel that broke LIS was released yesterday (March 6th 2017) on CentOS: https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/ce...

Update 2

https://cloudbase.it/downloads/v-magi... now includes the workaround. We'll remove it as soon as the issue is fixed in LIS.

2017-03-07 12:25:32 +0200 commented question V-Magine install fail "A start job is running for dev-mapp.."

If this issue happens regularly, it's probably due to some CentOS updates. We're deploying a few test environments now to see if we can reproduce the issue.

Hi, thanks for your reply! V-magine now has also a setting to explicitly set a proxy, which was not present at the time of the original question, hope this helps with the issue!
