Description

Observation

According to http://open.qa/api/testapi/, reset_consoles can be used to ensure next select_console really activates a console. But it seems that this is not true for sol console:

select_console 'sol', await_console => 0;
reset_consoles;
select_console 'sol', await_console => 0;

The sol console can not be activated anymore after operations shown in above code block. Screenshot captured by openQA looks like as below:

The machine on which this openQA instance run has been given a fresh reinstall. It runs new Leap 15.5 system. And I installed openQA on this machine by using:

curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/os-autoinst/openQA/master/script/openqa-bootstrap | bash -x

Steps to reproduce

  • select_console 'sol', await_console => 0;
  • reset_consoles;
  • select_console 'sol', await_console => 0;

Impact

Can not use reset_consoles with select_console.

Problem

Maybe the sol console is not cleaned up completely by reset_consoles.

Suggestions

  • Clarify whether reset_consoles work well with sol console
  • What reset_consoles does to sol console

Workaround

n/a

reset_consoles only resets the transient consoles, i.e. the ones that need to be reinitialized after resetting/rebooting the SUT. The "sol" is persistent over reboots hence reset_consoles shouldn't have an effect. We might be able to help you if you can provide more details about the specific openQA job you want to run. Can you provide the autoinst-log.txt file and/or direct access to the openQA instance so that we could take a look?

* The test run failed at select_console('sol') after reset_consoles. It called process_reboot in lib/transactional.pm, then failed at:

            if (is_ipmi) {
                reset_consoles;
                select_console 'sol', await_console => 0;
                send_key 'ret';
            }

The process_reboot is as below:

sub process_reboot {
    my (%args) = @_;
    $args{trigger} //= 0;
    $args{automated_rollback} //= 0;
    $args{expected_grub} //= 1;
    $args{expected_passphrase} //= 0;

    if (is_public_cloud) {
        my $instance = publiccloud::instances::get_instance();
        $instance->softreboot();    # Handled re-establishing of the required ssh tunnel and consoles
        return;
    }

    # Switch to root-console as we need VNC to check for grub and for login prompt
    my $prev_console = current_console();
    select_console 'root-console', await_console => 0;

    handle_first_grub if ($args{automated_rollback});

    if (!is_s390x && (is_microos || is_sle_micro('<6.0'))) {
        microos_reboot $args{trigger};
        record_kernel_audit_messages();
    } elsif (is_backend_s390x) {
        prepare_system_shutdown;
        enter_cmd "reboot";
        opensusebasetest::wait_boot(opensusebasetest->new(), bootloader_time => 300);
        record_kernel_audit_messages();
    } else {
        power_action('reboot', observe => !$args{trigger}, keepconsole => 1, ipmisol => 1);
        if (is_s390x || is_pvm) {
            reconnect_mgmt_console(timeout => 500) unless $args{automated_rollback};
        }
        if (!is_s390x && $args{expected_grub}) {
            if (is_aarch64 && check_screen('tianocore-mainmenu', 30)) {
                # Use firmware boot manager of aarch64 to boot HDD, when needed
                opensusebasetest::handle_uefi_boot_disk_workaround();
            }
            if ($args{expected_passphrase}) {
                unlock_if_encrypted();
            }
            # Replace by wait_boot if possible
            if (is_ipmi) {
                reset_consoles;
                select_console 'sol', await_console => 0;
                send_key 'ret';
            }
            assert_screen 'grub2', 150;
            wait_screen_change { send_key 'ret' };
        }
        assert_screen 'linux-login', 200;

        # Login & clear login needle
        select_console 'root-console';
        record_kernel_audit_messages();
        assert_script_run 'clear';
    }

    # Switch to the previous console
    select_console $prev_console;
}

* select_console('sol') in this case becomes:

* Attached autoinst-log.txt for this case.

I asked in a broader scope in https://suse.slack.com/archives/C02CANHLANP/p1704813309287429

And who can help for https://progress.opensuse.org/issues/153111 ?

@waynechen55 can you state what is your reference? Do you see this test code running fine in other environments? Or do you have a reference job that is not using the reset_consoles?

@waynechen55 if you have more information to make the issue easier to reproduce we might have a chance to help otherwise I see no good point to improve so I will unassign for now and keep this in "future".

I encountered this issue again. The only thing I know for sure is that there is no process "xterm" judging by ps axu when this issue occurs. It seems that the console crashes somehow. In normal case, there should be a process as below:

localhost:/var/lib/libvirt/images/temp # ps axu | grep -i xterm

Upstream URL   : http://os-autoinst.github.io/openQA/
Summary        : The openQA web-frontend, scheduler and tools
Description    : 
    openQA is a testing framework that allows you to test GUI applications on one
    hand and bootloader and kernel on the other. In both cases, it is difficult to
    script tests and verify the output. Output can be a popup window or it can be
    an error in early boot even before init is executed.

    openQA is an automated test tool that makes it possible to test the whole
    installation process of an operating system. It uses virtual machines to
    reproduce the process, check the output (both serial console and screen) in
    every step and send the necessary keystrokes and commands to proceed to the
    next. openQA can check whether the system can be installed, whether it works
    properly in 'live' mode, whether applications work or whether the system
    responds as expected to different installation options and commands.

    Even more importantly, openQA can run several combinations of tests for every
    revision of the operating system, reporting the errors detected for each
    combination of hardware configuration, installation options and variant of the
    operating system.
