Hi Didi,

vdsm.log is empty and not owned by root:
-rw-r--r-- 1 vdsm kvm 0 Oct 21 13:44 /var/log/vdsm/vdsm.log

In order to identify when this empty log is created i just reinstalled ovirt 3.5 AllInOne on a fresh installed Centos 6.5 as root user (the ls -l /var/log/vdsm/vdsm.log* output from above is from the fresh install)
the empty vdsm log is created after the installation step:
yum install -y ovirt-engine-setup-plugin-allinone

Then i did the engine-setup step (Complete settings/log at the end of this mail). Again with the error:
[ ERROR ] The VDSM host was found in a failed state. Please check engine and bootstrap installation logs.
[WARNING] Local storage domain not added because the VDSM host was not up. Please add it manually.

If i then enter webadmin the host is in the „install failed“ state. (vddm.log still empty)

I then clicked on reinstall host. After this the whole webadmin page becomes unresponsive. I’ve waited 15 min and then rebooted the machine - now the server isn’t responding on port 443 and 80. (I will now install again and don’t click on the reinstall button)
If u need more logs or information i’ll be happy to provide them.

Thanks for your help
Patrick Werner
