I might be missing something obvious here, please do correct me if I’m wrong: one other
option you could consider is to improve your setup by adding the possibility of excluding
certain test files.

ok, thanks Remi.  let me think if there is any other solution or please propose one?
I would like to run all BVTs.  Another solution can be - since this is not a common (nicira)
setup, can we move this test out of BVTs/smoke folder ?

Hi Raja,

Skipping tests makes them invisible, I think that is Miguels point.

Yesterday I run some tests and I almost reported all as OK only to realise it had skipped
a test due to not having a certain setup. If it had failed, I would have noticed sooner.

Hi Miguel,

I have a setup that runs pretty much everything we have under "smoke" folder as is.  So, was
the request to skip if the config was not there.

We can put proper error message as Koushik suggested:  "config not there or incorrect config".
With that change, it will work for you and with my setup.

I can put in the PR with the changes and you can comment if it works for you?

I am not aware of anyone except Schuberg that uses the nicira (NSX) cloudstack integration.

And since Miguel wrote the test, I am comfortable doing what he suggests and not run it as
part of the standard tests for a release.

Can't we not run the test if we do not wish to do so?

Can't we output a proper message (missing OR incorrect config) while skipping the test?

Hi Raja,

I don't agree with what you propose.
I do understand your intention is to be able to run all tests and skip the ones you don't
have a config for.
However, I also see the other side of that coin, when someone actually wants to run the tests
but makes a mistake in the config and the tests get skipped.

I think the test should fail if the config is not right, or otherwise be excluded if the indentation
is to not run them.

Hi Miguel,

Can you please add some checking in the setup method for the configuration parameters and
if it is not available, can you skip this test?

Hi Raja,

That test needs a NSX cluster. With that in place, the configuration used to run the test
must define a section called NiciraNvp, and that section should have an array os hosts with
that name (see line 46 of the test).
In a Marvin config that materializes in something like this:
"niciraNvp": {

"hosts": [ "", "" ] }

Furthermore, you need to have a zone configured to use NSX and that requires more work.
You can find a full Marvin config for it here:
o ne1-kvm1-NVP.cfg In that same git repo there are config files for
deploying a NSX cluster (
However, we have not yet fully automated all the steps needed to get the cluster up and running
(ie. setting up the cluster internals, and adding a more controllers to the cluster).
I can help you with that if you need.

Hi Miguel or someone's familiar with this test,

Can you please provide documentation around how to get these tests running ?
BTW - looks like this is a new test that was added on Aug 25th 2015.
