Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-531) Potential disaster with template-cleanup enabled!
Date Fri, 23 Nov 2012 13:44:58 GMT
Tamas Monos created CLOUDSTACK-531:

             Summary: Potential disaster with template-cleanup enabled!
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-531
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Template
    Affects Versions: 4.0.0
            Reporter: Tamas Monos
            Priority: Blocker


I've done an upgrade from 3.0.2 -> 4.0.0.
All went OK with some workarounds:
1. Add new vmware template to CS with name systemvm-vmware-4.0 (I have re-imported it)
2. Wait till the template is downloaded and installed successfully
3. Look up id of this template in DB (Name should match the input provided in step
mysql> select id from `cloud`.`vm_template` where name = 
mysql> 'systemvm-vmware-4.0' and removed is null;

4. Update template type to SYSTEM
mysql> update `cloud`.`vm_template` set type='SYSTEM' where id = 
mysql> <id-from-step3>;

5. Update template Id for all system Vms
mysql> update `cloud`.`vm_instance` set vm_template_id = <id-from-step3> 
mysql> where type <> 'User' and hypervisor_type = 'VMware';

I was very happy as the platform was just working fine. Then I've enabled "storage.template.cleanup.enabled".
This resulted in destruction of my running(!!!) systemVMs.
Then the management server started telling me that the Zone is not ready for secondary storage...
I tried to add a new one which failed. I've removed the current one and tried to recreate
it, failed.

Management server logs will follow shortly.
