Description

Motivation

After analysis of reported YaST bugs, there is one https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1040944 which fails in YaST dump module

Acceptance criteria

  1. Module is tested manually on s390
  2. There is simple test which verifies basic functionality of YaST dump module on s390

Suggestions

  1. Learn what module is for
  2. Test manually on zVM and zKVM
  3. Develop automated test scenario to verify functionality of the YaST module
  4. Enable at least on s390x ( but potentially on x86 if it applys to that arch as well).

This module is just a front-end for the mkdump perl script. It lists DASD or ZFCP devices (only the ones that can be used as dump device) and allows to initialize them, then exits. That's all.
It is the same as doing the following:

mkdump --list-dasd
mkdump --list-zfcp
mkdump [--force] /dev/[device]

except that the error output from mkdump is not always properly displayed.

#13 Updated by JRivrain 11 months ago

Tested on zVM, for zKVM we need access to some of the dasd devices attached to the hypervisor. There are actually 268 offline dasd devices on s390p8, but I do not know if they can be used.
Not tested: zfcp devices, we don't seem to have any.

I have not advanced much on this ticket, I have mostly been doing manual testing on GMC2.
I reported a bug though https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1135241&GoAheadAndLogIn=1 : mkdump lists devices that it should not.

#16 Updated by JRivrain 11 months ago

Created a new ticket as it does not make much sense to create an SUT only for that module.

#17 Updated by JRivrain 11 months ago

  • Status changed from Resolved to In Progress

re-opening, I thought we had no ZFCP devices to play with but we do.

#18 Updated by JERiveraMoya 11 months ago

  • Status changed from In Progress to Resolved

Proposal will be added to related ticket.
