Sangeetha Hariharan created CLOUDSTACK-5370:
-----------------------------------------------

             Summary: Xenserver - Snapshots - vhd entries get accumulated on the primary store
when snapshot creation fails becasue of not being able to reach the secondary store.
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-5370
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-5370
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: Management Server
    Affects Versions: 4.3.0
         Environment: Build from 4.3
            Reporter: Sangeetha Hariharan
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 4.3.0


Set up:
Advanced Zone with 2 Xenserver 6.2 hosts:

1. Deploy 5 Vms in each of the hosts with 10 GB ROOT volume size , so we start with 10 Vms.
2. Start concurrent snapshots for ROOT volumes of all the Vms.
3. Shutdown the Secondary storage server when the snapshots are in the progress. ( In my case
i stopped the nfs server)
4. Bring the Secondary storage server up after 12 hours. ( In my case started the nfs server).

When secondary server was down (NFS server down) for about 12 hours , I see that hourly snapshots
get attempted every hour and fail with “CreatedOnPrimary" state . I see many entries being
created on the primary store ( I see 120 entries , but I have only 14 vms).

We accumulate  2 vhd files on the primary store for  every  snapshot that is attempted.
When secondary store is brought up , and when  another snapshot is attempted and it succeeds,
we see the vhd files are all being cleared out.

This is a problem that we accumulate so many vhd files ( In case of vmware and kvm where there
are no delta snapshots this size would be significantly higher) on primary store.
