Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-7974) deleted VM entries still exists in /etc/hosts and /etc/dhcphosts.txt files on virtual router
Date Fri, 28 Nov 2014 10:54:13 GMT


Paul Angus commented on CLOUDSTACK-7974:

Using 4.3.0:

Today I destroyed some VMs and re-added a few with the same host name. I had some connectivity
issues within the network to the hostname being alternately returned with the new and old
IP addresses.

Checking /etc/hosts on the VR I found a load of old entries including the hostname of my new
instance twice, once with the old IP and once with the new IP.
I removed the old entries but the problem persisted. So i restarted the VR and the issue cleared.

>      Security Level: Public(Anyone can view this level - this is the default.) 
>          Components: Virtual Router
>    Affects Versions: 4.3.0
>            Reporter: Yiping Zhang
>             Fix For: 4.5.0, 4.6.0, 4.4.2, 4.4.3, 4.3.2
> We have noticed that entries for hosts which have been destroyed for a long time still
exist in both /etc/dhcphosts.txt and /etc/hosts files on our Virtual Routers.
> To reproduce this bug,  just create an instance, note down its MAC and IP address, then
destroy the instance from web UI.  Now check virtual router, and you will find that the entries
still exist in /etc/dhcphosts.txt and /etc/hosts files.
> I did a bit more digging on virtual router, and immediately noticed the following:
> 1. /root/ script is only called when an instance is created, but not when
an instance is destroyed.
> 2. After reading /root/ script, I am pretty certain that the function of
this script is to add info about newly created instances into /etc/hosts and /etc/dhcphosts.txt
files.  So the script should really be renamed as /root/ to reflect its true function.
> 3.  there is no script to properly delete entries from /etc/hosts and /etc/dhcphosts.txt
file when instances are destroyed
