Bug Description

This bug is a follow-up to https://bugs.launchpad.net/fuel/+bug/1378000 but for a newer release.

Detailed bug description:
  Still getting duplicated IPs for a couple of nodes. Fuel 9.0 (9.1)

[root@fuel ~]# grep fresh.node.list
| 1078 | Untitled (d1:28) | discover | ubuntu | [] | | 52:54:00:6c:d1:28 | None | Standard PC (i440FX + PIIX, 1996) | False |
| 39 | Untitled (39:04) | discover | ubuntu | [] | | 52:54:00:2a:39:04 | None | Standard PC (i440FX + PIIX, 1996) | True |
[root@fuel ~]#

dnsmasq.conf contains dhcp-sequential-ip option. Perhaps, it doesn't work with more than 1000 nodes.

There's more than 200Gb of logs, i can't attach all of them. The env is still online, but we need to react ASAP. No idea, how long it would be kept.

Changed in fuel:
milestone: none → 9.2
importance: Undecided → High
status: New → Confirmed

It usually happens when you delete old environment and some nodes are not rebooted. This not rebooted nodes still have old node configuration.
Rebooted node can get the same IP as a node from the old env.

To make sure that it's not a case here please reboot the nodes with the same IPs.

Problem description:

1) node-A gets IP x.x.x.x
2) node-A reports IP x.x.x.x to nailgun and it's saved to DB
3) node-A goes offline (or DHCPREQUEST/DHCPACK packets are lost during IP lease renewal)
4) DHCP lease for IP x.x.x.x expires
5) node-B gets IP x.x.x.x
6) node-B reports IP x.x.x.x to nailgun and it's saved to DB (here we have duplicate IPs in DB)
7) deployment task is started where node-A and node-B have the same x.x.x.x IP
9) provisioning fails with error:
#<XMLRPC::FaultException: <class 'cobbler.cexceptions.CX'>:'IP address duplicated: x.x.x.x'>

Simple solution:
Increase DHCP lease time up to several days (average time between bootstrap of first nodes and provisioning step)

Complex solution (new fuel feature):
Update MAC<-->IP pinning in Cobbler/DHCP as soon as node (mac, IP) is updated in the DB, not only on provision step as we do now. This way we won't have "split brain" information on MAC<-->IP mappings.

After detailed research of the situation it turned out that there were nodes in the lab that got addresses from other dhcp server or on the previous test cycle and then the Fuel master node was re-installed and all dhcp leases were removed. Once the new test cycle was started nodes got duplicate ip addresses.

After careful removal of all dhcp leases and disabling all unnecessary nodes everything went good. Setting bug to invalid status.

I have a repo with one Fuel. Steps for reproduce
1. Deploy cluster with 400 nodes.
2. Deployment should be failed (with one node offline on example)
3. Remove 100 nodes from cluster. Start deploy again
4. Deployment should be failed (with one node offline on example)
5. Reset cluster

After reset we have a lot of duplicates IPs, 33 in my case

Imho, proper fix requires obtaining control over lease process, might be possible with dnsmasq witha --dhcp-script option together with --leasefile-ro (maybe) - and writing our own lease management, for which we will have full control, preventing any IP duplication. Alternativey we need to switch to a different DHCP server which provides API/CLI to control leases. The we can set static leases for all nodes except "discover", and remove them on reset / deletion of node. I'll try to look into dnsmasq, but it may be wiser in long term to switch to something like ISC DHCP server (dhcpd).

Georgy Kibardin (gkibardin) wrote :

I think it is better to start with the second option, i.e. replace dnsmasq with ISC. Dnsmasq was not initially designed for such a load.

switching to dhcpd is not good with timeline we have, please consider other options

Georgy Kibardin (gkibardin) wrote :

Looking at dnsmasq codebase I suspect finding race condition which leads to IP duplication may take even longer.

I've looked into dnsmasq lease control option and looks like there ain't any - dnsmasq can have an external database (with --dhcp-script and --leasefile-ro) BUT it will still maintain it's in-memory copy and provide new IPs based on that. This means that we cannot dynamically pre-allocate IPs outside dnsmasq without restarting it - it will not get the new values automatically, which makes the whole process unreliable (there will be a race between IP update in our code and dnsmasq's giving out new IPs before it's restarted, also frequent dnsmasq restarts may cause dhcp renew issues). So far I only see the path of switching to a different dhcp server + writing IP management code to control it.

Quick in-place fix:
You can edit file `/etc/dnsmasq.d/default.conf`
where 120m - is default lease time, after change you need to restart dnsmasq :
`systemctl restart dnsmasq.service`

But preferred fix it in, in fuel-library :
in fuel-master fix file :
(at line `$lease_time = '120m'` )
(Read more in [1])
And re-run puppet apply with command :
`/etc/puppet/modules/fuel/examples/deploy.sh` (read more in [3])

Otherwise, with applying update or puppet re-run - you'r change will be overwrited by puppet.

After you done with dnsmasq config, you need to reboot all discovered nodes.
(or restart dhclient on each node)
