Subject Re: ALARM - ACS reboots host servers!!!
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2014 12:37:55 GMT

Koushik, I understand that and I will put the storage into the maintenance mode next time.
However, things happen and servers crash from time to time, which is not the reason to reboot
all host servers, even those which do not have any running vms with volumes on the nfs storage.
The bloody agent just rebooted every single host server regardless if they were running vms
with volumes on the rebooted nfs server. 95% of my vms are running from ceph and those should
have never been effected in the first place.

The primary storage needs to be put in maintenance before doing any upgrade/reboot as mentioned
in the previous mails.
