especially this part: NFS Storage Domain Failure on Fedora 17
I had exactly the very same issue and... spent several days figuring how
to solve it, based also on "Troubleshooting NFS..." above.
The critical information that page above is lacking, is that kernel 3.4.*
is _not_ available, for FC17, in ready-made RPM. So this command:
# rpm -qa | grep kernel-3.4
will _NOT_ produce output, and searching the web for "kernel-3.4" FC17
RPMs will get you to plenty of "rt" kernel that, being real-time
oriented, I wonder if are suitable for our virtualization goals (or not...).
In the end, I saw that kernel-3.4 is correctly packaged and delivered
with FC16 updates and yesterday I (succesfully) installed:
Afterwards, the NFS/ISO domain was immediately added, with no problems
(NFS server is a FreeNas box). Some minor issue relates to UID/GID
mapping, but these are easily solvable, thanks to mentioned web-page
I have _NOT_ a clear idea about the impact of such a setup:
- - a (current, updated) FC17 setup;
- - kernel-3.4.9 and related (quite old) kvm kernel module;
- - (very new) virtualization-preview repository enabled  (I need
v-motion between VMs), hence:
- libvirt 0.9.13
- qemu 1.2
- qemu-kvm 1.2
...but I will investigate in the upcoming days (BTW: I'm having very poor
NFS and network performance, but these could be caused by my hardware setup).
So, in the end, I can finally correctly power-up my first VM and access
its console via VNC (on my Ubuntu notebook, spice-client is not
available, and I want to spend my efforts in "core" ovirt-issues, insted
of compiling firefox addons). I can see the network-setup of a CentOS
test-vm starting but... nothing else. I'm starting, right now,
investigating those other issues.
Should you need further info, don't hesitate to ask.
