As you probably know we are now in a mode in which we develop our next
zstream version on the master branch as opposed to how we worked before
where the master version was dedicated for the next major version. This
makes the rapid changes in master to be delivered to customers in a much
higher cadence thus affecting stability.
Due to that we think it's best that from now on merges in the master branch
will be done only by stable branch maintainers after inspecting those
What you need to do in order to get your patch merged:
- Have it pass Jenkins
- Have it get code review +2
- Have it mark verified +1
- It's always encourage to have it tested by OST, for bigger changes it's a
Once you have all those covered, please add me as a reviewer and I'll
examine it and merge if everything seems right, if I haven't done it in a
timely manner feel free to ping me.
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!
I am currently working with the java-sdk and I encountered a problem.
If I would like to retrieve the disk details, I get the following error:
Disk currDisk = ovirtConnection.followLink(diskAttachment.disk());
The Error is occurring in this line:
The getResponst looks quiet ok. (I inspected: [cid:image002.png@01D44537.AF127FD0] and it looks ok).
wrong number of arguments
The code is quiet similar to what you published on github (https://github.com/oVirt/ovirt-engine-sdk-java/blob/master/sdk/src/test/j... ).
Can you confirm the defect?
Oracle Linux is offering CentOS users/dev/production servers to switch to Oracle Linux free of cost. They've produced a script to do this. Oracle also has their own Repo's for oVirt and use it for their own Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager [Re-branded oVirt].
I know Red Hat has announced moving away from RHV and focusing on OpenShift virtualization. They'll happen in 2022-forward. Are we already to assume oVirt will follow suite and migrate to OpenShift??
Since announcement of CentOS going EOL and move to CentOS Stream... [Not doing it].
- Will the oVirt team continue to develop past 4.4 release as well as support Oracle Linux?
- Does Oracle really develop to their own ovirt repo and virtualization manager product
- What about supporting OpenSuSE or SLES?
- oVirt packages on RHEL? [RH announced they will allow RHEL installed on up to 16-hosts for FREE]
I am considering to test moving CentOS 7 development work-loads to Oracle Linux and use their oVirt repo.
Really like to know if oVirt developers plan to continue to build on what is there moving forward. Or will the project die? I use oVirt on production work-loads [same as others] with GREAT success. This is an absolute VMWare replacement.
we would like to ask about interest in community about oVirt moving to CentOS Stream.
There were some requests before but it’s hard to see how many people would really like to see that.
With CentOS releases lagging behind RHEL for months it’s interesting to consider moving to CentOS Stream as it is much more up to date and allows us to fix bugs faster, with less workarounds and overhead for maintaining old code. E.g. our current integration tests do not really pass on CentOS 8.1 and we can’t really do much about that other than wait for more up to date packages. It would also bring us closer to make oVirt run smoothly on RHEL as that is also much closer to Stream than it is to outdated CentOS.
So..would you like us to support CentOS Stream?
We don’t really have capacity to run 3 different platforms, would you still want oVirt to support CentOS Stream if it means “less support” for regular CentOS?
There are some concerns about Stream being a bit less stable, do you share those concerns?
Thank you for your comments,

I'll be performing a planned Jenkins restart within the next hour.
No new CI jobs will be scheduled during this maintenance period.
I will inform you once it is back online.
is there a way how to trigger custom ansible playbooks ? For example when VM is created i'd like to automatically trigger playbook to define exact MAC address.
I guess this is not possible to integrate via VDSM hook as they are executed on the host basis. Maybe it's possible to write UI plugin but i didn't find as much in documentation. Thank you so much !
i've set up gpu passthrough with RTX2080 consumer grade card properly. But need to add rom file param into libvirt XML. I wrote vdsm hook which is quite easy but i've found a problem that even i put the hook into before_vm_start event those passthrough devices are not present at that time in the XML.
I couldn't find anything on docs about when those devices are ready in the XML and which event i should use. Thank you so much !!
I followed the official tutorial to deploy the development environment on centos7.9 but when I execute “make install-dev PREFIX="$HOME/ovirt-engine"” ，the system report two message and I search similar situation on https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1549166
