Triggered a sanity tier1 execution [1] using [2], which covers all the requested areas, on iSCSI, NFS and Gluster. 
I'll update with the results.

Hi Martin,

I see [1] requires a rebase, can you please take care?

Should be rebased.

At the moment, our automation is stable only on iSCSI, NFS, Gluster and FC.
Ceph is not supported and Cinder will be stabilized soon, AFAIR, it's not
stable enough at the moment.

That is still pretty good.

Hi, sorry if I misunderstood, I waited for more input regarding what areas
have to be tested here.

I'd say that you have quite a bit of freedom in this regard. GlusterFS
should be covered by Dennis, so iSCSI/NFS/ceph/cinder with some suite
that covers basic operations (start & stop VM, migrate it), snapshots
and merging them, and whatever else would be important for storage

We can test this on iSCSI, NFS and GlusterFS. As for ceph and cinder,
have to check, since usually, we don't execute our automation on them.

Any update on this? I believe the gluster tests were successful, OST
passes fine and unit tests pass fine, that makes the storage backends
test the last required piece.

Please make sure to run as much OST suites on this patch as possible

before merging ( using 'ci please build' )

But note that OST is not a way to verify the patch.

Such changes require testing with all storage types we support.

I've created a patch[0] that is finally able to activate libvirt's
dynamic_ownership for VDSM while not negatively affecting
functionality of our storage code.

That of course comes with quite a bit of code removal, mostly in
area of host devices, hwrng and anything that touches devices;
of test changes and one XML generation caveat (storage is handled
VDSM, therefore disk relabelling needs to be disabled on the VDSM

Because of the scope of the patch, I welcome storage/virt/network
people to review the code and consider the implication this change
on current/future features.


In particular:  dynamic_ownership was set to 0 prehistorically (as

of ) because
running as root, was not able to play properly with root-squash nfs

Have you attempted this use case?

I join to Nir's request to run this with storage QE.
