HA KVM Open Nebula

Hi everyone, does anyone know if the VM HA with KVM in Open Nebula only works with NFS in luns storage? or does it also support connection via FC or iSCSI?

Hi, basicly, you need any type of shared storage. When you get live migration working, then HA would work too

Tks!!, i have that shared storage but i got a problem when i chosse create a new VM and alocate in KVM servers ;

“Mon Nov 29 14:04:38 2021: Error executing image transfer script: Error copying vdc.eyc.cl:/var/lib/one//datastores/1/fbdba69a46986045cc7b3a3dd0482308 to kvmtst:/var/lib/one//datastores/119/65/disk.0”

I tried connection by ssh and scp between nebula and kvm and it has no problems

Please share your image and system datastore templates

Tks @feldsam for your help, now i can create vm on kvm, the problem was the mount point, they were diferent that the frontend Nebula, but now i configured the HA Hook for VM on it, but i received this error :

onehem.log
“Mon Nov 29 15:55:02 2021 [I]: Executing hook 4 for HOST/ERROR/

This is a safeguard against running the script on hosts without fencing configured.
Having shared storage, you must guarantee that there are no running VMs on the failed node. To achieve this, you must have an interface that effectively resolves this. Usually, it is something like host power-off or reset via IPMI.
The interface that disables the host should be integrated into the /var/lib/one/remotes/hooks/ft/fence_host.sh. I prefer to use this file as a template/reference/ for creating a different file and reconfigure the hook to use it.

I hope this helps.
