Description

It is related to Bug #196 and Bug #187.
I could not apply the patches related to this bug, so I can not use the RANK option yet.
I have while the Weekend the case of one host where the mount of /var/lib/one was automatik remounted read only, so all tries to generate new VMs failed.
It would be no big Problem, had one not tried obstinately to place every other VM since then into this very Host:

4627 root win764DE runn 0 4117504 172.22.0.20 02 21:13:18
4628 root Txp32DE fail 0 0 172.22.0.2 00 00:00:16
4629 root Tvista64 fail 0 0 172.22.0.2 00 00:00:26

4642 root xp32DE fail 0 0 172.22.0.2 00 00:00:07

Today morning I noticed the failure and disable the host.
I muss say, the reputation of our Virtual Machine Management has reached a new low!

I propose one show control the writability of /var/lib/one on the hosts and disable automatically the host in case of Filesystem failure.
I'm working on a patch for this and will post it ASAP.

I workaround it in /usr/lib/one/tm_commands/nfs/tm_clone.sh:
(SNIP)
--- tm_clone.sh (revision 1890)
+++ tm_clone.sh (working copy)
@ -39,7 +39,13 @
DST_DIR=`dirname $DST_PATH`

log "Creating directory $DST_DIR" 
-exec_and_log "ssh $DST_HOST mkdir -p $DST_DIR"
if ssh $DST_HOST mkdir -p $DST_DIR
+then
echo "sucessfully created Directory"
else
ONE_AUTH=/root/.one/auth onehost disable $DST_HOST
+ exec_and_log ' echo Could not create directory ; false'
+fi
exec_and_log "ssh $DST_HOST chmod a+w $DST_DIR"
(SNIP)

It is a dirty patch, but I could not think of a better.
Best regards

We have the error state, the scheduler will not assign VMs and we'll keep polling it in case of temporal failure. Closing
