Description

Observation

openQA test in scenario sle-15-Installer-DVD-x86_64-textmode@64bit-ipmi fails in
qa_net_boot_from_hdd.

Assumption: The black screen you can see there is the XVnc screen on the worker which normally has a SOL connection opened to the SUT to see/enter commands. For some reason the worker is still connected to the SOL interface (otherwise the backend would try a reconnect and fail after 10 attempts <- not visible in the logs) but there is no output from the SUT on it.

Further investigation why this happens is needed. Maybe the fix is as easy as just reconnecting to the SUT right after the system finished installation.

Acceptance criteria

  • AC: The module qa_net_boot_from_hdd passes or fail/soft-fail on a proper product bug.

Hypotheses

  1. H1: ipmi machine not working after installation.
  2. H2: The problem begins on qa_net_boot_from_hdd::prepare_system_shutdown.
  3. H3: The problem begins on qa_net_boot_from_hdd::assert_shutdown_and_restore_system.
  4. H4: The sol console was not selected after the installation.

Tasks

  1. E1-1: Restart the job and try to manually connect to the ipmi machine while the job is stuck on module qa_net_boot_from_hdd.
    • R1-1: I have verified that when the module qa_net_boot_from_hdd is stuck I can access the ipmi machine and the system was properly installed and working.
  2. E4-1 Explicitly select sol console after installation.
    • R4-1 It works

Reproducible

Happens since the boot_from_pxe module was fixed and the test could continue.

Expected result

OpenQA can continue testing after the installation of SLE on the SUT
