After enabled automatic reboot of osd itself the VM did not come up from reboot on 2020-08-02 . okurz reported which bmwiedemann could resolve early 2020-08-03 . okurz logged in as root with the SSH key from "backup-vm" as normal user login was not working. Many services were not running. The mounted partition were not in order:

# df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda1       9.6G  5.8G  3.4G  63% /
/dev/vdc        5.0T  4.5T  605G  89% /srv
/dev/vdd        5.0T  3.4T  1.7T  68% /assets

missing /home and /results and also /srv should not be 5TB.


During the course of the last two years likely the former volume "vdb" was removed during runtime of the VM at the time when coolo and EngInfra moved assets and results to two new, separated volumes. However as /etc/fstab relies on the order of detected devices after former vdb vanished on the next bootup the existing partitions are now identified differently and were assigned to incorrect mount points and also former "vde" was missing.


okurz fixed this with defining mount points in /etc/fstab using UUIDs:

# cat /etc/fstab 
devpts  /dev/pts          devpts  mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
proc    /proc             proc    defaults        0 0
sysfs   /sys              sysfs   noauto          0 0
debugfs /sys/kernel/debug debugfs noauto          0 0
usbfs   /proc/bus/usb     usbfs   noauto          0 0
tmpfs   /run              tmpfs   noauto          0 0
# 7116dc72-ebc8-4b21-8847-b9f31dc95229 -> vda1
/dev/vda1 / ext3 defaults 1 1
# 2e55520d-2b90-4100-8892-025c5f4c9949 -> vda2
/dev/vda2 swap swap defaults 0 0
# 6c8044d6-5497-4db6-9714-89b76268121e -> vdb
UUID=6c8044d6-5497-4db6-9714-89b76268121e /srv xfs defaults,logbsize=256k,noatime,nodiratime 1 2
/srv/PSQL10 /var/lib/pgsql none bind 0 0
# 3f003a69-c51e-4d79-8b83-906e7918bac4 -> vdc
UUID=3f003a69-c51e-4d79-8b83-906e7918bac4 /assets xfs defaults,logbsize=256k,noatime,nodiratime 1 2
/assets /var/lib/openqa/share none bind 0 0 
# 51d504aa-6f46-4b89-bcd9-b6cea7b8b755 -> vdd
UUID=51d504aa-6f46-4b89-bcd9-b6cea7b8b755 /results xfs defaults,logbsize=256k,noatime,nodiratime 1 2
/results /var/lib/openqa none bind 0 0
/srv/homes.img /home ext4 defaults 1 1

As an alternative labels could be used. However only "assets" is currently available with a label. Filesystem labels can be set with tune2fs -L $LABEL /dev/vd$i for ext2/3/4 or for xfs xfs_admin -L $LABEL /dev/vd$i which however needs unmounted volumes so something left for later.


#1 Updated by okurz 6 months ago

  • Description updated (diff)
  • Priority changed from Immediate to Urgent

Situation was resolved. All services on osd operational again. See description for main problem. Additionally:

  • systemctl default
  • systemctl reset-failed
  • rm /run/nologin to prevent "System is booting up. See pam_nologin(8)" for non-root ssh login attempts
  • Triggered manually systemctl start openqa-enqueue-asset-cleanup.timer openqa-enqueue-audit-event-cleanup.timer openqa-enqueue-bug-cleanup.timer openqa-enqueue-result-cleanup.timer
  • cleaned up some data on partitions, e.g. /assets/log/ /assets/PSQL10/
  • sudo systemctl restart nfs-server
  • sudo salt -l error -C 'G@roles:worker' 'mount -a' to repair the mount of var-lib-openqa-share.mount
  • New jobs were not scheduled because of

Fixed by restart of the service but IMHO the service should not stay running with Mojo::Reactor::Poll: Timer failed: Can't open database lock file /var/lib/openqa/db/db.lock! at /usr/share/openqa/script/../lib/OpenQA/ line 87. Recorded now in #65271#note-24

#2 Updated by okurz 6 months ago

  • Status changed from In Progress to Resolved

These jobs look fine so far as well (except for already existing problems fixed elsewhere).
