Subject RE: [DISCUSS] Out of Band VR migration, should we reboot VR or not?
Date Thu, 04 Jun 2015 04:39:44 GMT
The VR configurations are not persisted and so these are not present when out of band movement
happens outside of CS. When a VR is recreated/rebooted from CS all the configurations are
read from DB and pushed to the VR.

The VR was originally designed as a stateless entity, all state/configuration is pushed to
it by on start by MS.

Sorry for not answering in the thread, I was not on the dev ML so I could not reply

I reported this current behavior to be an issue on the user ML and wanted to ask Koushik Das
about his experiences.

I would not agree, in an Vmware environment live migrations, e.g. Vmware DRS breaks IPtables
normally. In my opinion, this would make DRS senseless. And if it happens, it would be uncommon.

We do live migrations daily with VMs having IPtables rules and I didn't see such a behaviour
on any of these VMs.

Could you share more information about your experiences Koushik Das? In what conditions this

In any case I would love to test DRS live migraions on VR without this current behavior. In
any way, with this current behaviour, we would have a lot of downtimes.

The other "solution" would be reapplying the rules without reboot, I am not fully aware of
the new behaviour af aggration but wouldn't this also cause a network outage?
