History

#1 Updated by rpalethorpe over 4 years ago

AFAICT OpenQA passes the devices on the QEMU command line in order, so either QEMU or the kernel (udev?) are doing something which creates a strange order. I don't think this is a product bug however we are just relying on behaviour which is not guaranteed. I think there are a few potential fixes:

1) Create a util function which uses some heuristics (e.g. unmounted, writable and larger than 1 GB) to select a suitable drive. This might be a problem on bare metal, but is quite safe in VMs.
2) Set and/or use the drive serial number to identify the drive. On bare metal this would require a worker specific variable.
3) Poke around in QEMU and the Kernel to find some other solution.

Hm, seems Worker dependent

on QA-Power8-5-kvm is order of disks swiched - https://openqa.suse.de/tests/1514744
but on powerqaworker-qam-1 is correct - https://openqa.suse.de/tests/1508732
