I was trying to upgrade a hyperconverged oVirt hosted engine and failed in
the engine-setup command with these error and warnings.
[ INFO ] Creating/refreshing Engine database schema
[ ERROR ] schema.sh: FATAL: Cannot execute sql command:
[ ERROR ] Failed to execute stage 'Misc configuration': Engine schema
[ INFO ] Yum Verify: 16/16: ovirt-engine-tools.noarch 0:184.108.40.206-1.el7 - e

There are 2 drives in my install that oVirt is claiming as multipath.
I have tried blacklisting at /etc/multipath/ but that hasn't worked.
Any better solutions? I need these 2 drives to be non-multipathed.
I have a 3-node oVirt cluster. I have configured 2 logical networks:
ovirtmgmt and public. Public logical network is attached in only 2 nodes
and failing to attach on the 3rd node with the below error
Invalid operation, out-of-sync network 'public' can only be detached.
Please have been stuck on this for almost the whole day now. How do I fix
I just has a case, I need to change the oVirt host and engine IP address
due to data center decommission I checked in the hosted-engine host
there are some files I could change ;
and of course I need to change the ovirtmgmt interface IP too, I think
just change the above line could do the tick, but where could I change
the other host IP in the cluster ?
I think I have to be lost all the host as once changed the hosted-engine
host IP as it is in diff. sub net.
Does there any command line tools could do that or someone has such
experience could share?
I was used to use the vmconsole proxy, but since a while, I'm getting
this issue (currently 4.4.5):
# ssh -t -p 2222 ovirt-vmconsole(a)air.v100.abes.fr connect
ovirt-vmconsole(a)air.v100.abes.fr: Permission denied (publickey).
I found following in the engine.log
2021-04-15 17:55:43,094+02 ERROR
[org.ovirt.engine.core.services.VMConsoleProxyServlet] (default task-4)
 Error validating ticket: :
sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to
find valid certification path to requested target
The user key is the good one, I use the same with my other engines and I
can successfully connect to vm consoles.
Thank you for helping

I have a replica 2 + arbiter installation and this morning the Hosted Engine gave the following error on the UI and resumed on a different node (node3) than the one it was originally running(node1). (The original node has more memory than the one it ended up, but it had a better memory usage percentage at the time). Also, the only way I discovered the migration had happened and there was an Error in Events, was because I logged in the web interface of ovirt for a routine inspection. Βesides that, everything was working properly and still is.
The error that popped is the following:
VM HostedEngine is down with error. Exit message: internal error: qemu unexpectedly closed the monitor:
2020-09-01T06:49:20.749126Z qemu-kvm: warning: All CPU(s) up to maxcpus should be described in NUMA config, ability to start up with partial NUMA mappings is obsoleted and will be removed in future

Is another process using the image?.
Which from what I could gather concerns the following snippet from the HostedEngine.xml and it's the virtio disk of the Hosted Engine:
<disk type='file' device='disk' snapshot='no'>
<driver name='qemu' type='raw' cache='none' error_policy='stop' io='threads' iothread='1'/>
<seclabel model='dac' relabel='no'/>
<target dev='vda' bus='virtio'/>
<address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x07' function='0x0'/>
I've tried looking into the logs and the sar command but I couldn't find anything to relate with the above errors and determining the reason for it to happen. Is this a Gluster or a QEMU problem?
The Hosted Engine was manually migrated five days before on node1.
Is there a standard practice I could follow to determine what happened and secure my system?
Thank you very much for your time,
Is it possible to setup a hosted engine using the OVS switch type instead of Legacy? If it's not possible to start out as OVS, instructions for switching from Legacy to OVS after the fact would be greatly appreciated.
I'm trying to assign a USB3 controller to a CentOS 7.4 VM in oVirt 4.1
with USB redirection enabled.
I've created the following file in /etc/ovirt-engine/osinfo.conf.d:
01-usb.properties with content
os.other.devices.usb.controller.value = nec-xhci
and have restarted ovirt-engine.
If I disable USB-support in the web interface for the VM, the xhci
controller is added to the VM (I can see it in the qemu-kvm
commandline), but usb redirection is not available.
If I enable USB-support in the UI, no xhci controller is added (only 4
Is there a way to make the controllers for usb redirection xhci controllers?

how do we manage routing between different OVN networks in oVirt?
And between OVN networks and physical ones?
Based on architecture read here:
I see terms for logical routers and gateway routers respectively but how to
apply to oVirt configuration?
Do I have to choose between setting up a specialized VM or a physical one:
is it applicable/advisable to put on oVirt host itself the gateway
Is there any security policy (like security groups in Openstack) to
