OVS Agent Packaging Issue

Bug #1048668 reported by Emilien Macchi on 2012-09-10

Bug Description

I'm using Ubuntu Testing Folsom Packages [1] with Quantum-server with OVS plugin.

1) When you want to upgrade the agent, you have an overwrite error [2].
The only one way I found to fix it is to do :

dpkg --force-overwrite --purge quantum-plugin-openvswitch
apt-get install -y quantum-plugin-openvswitch

2) /etc/init/quantum-plugin-openvswitch-agent.conf is false :
I'm using root since Quantum has not the rights to write on OVS files :

exec start-stop-daemon --start --chuid root --exec /usr/bin/quantum-openvswitch-agent/quantum-openvswitch-agent -- --config-file /etc/quantum/quantum.conf --config-file /etc/quantum/plugins/openvswitch/ovs_quantum_plugin.ini --log-file /var/log/quantum/agent-ovs.log

As discussed with Emilien on IRC, seems to be an issue connecting to the OVS socket when executing via quantum-rootwrap: http://paste.openstack.org/show/nxrauk9Pje5zTYhZGcNu/

There is an error in the default *ovs_quantum_plugin.ini* file :

Replace "root_helper = quantum-rootwrap /etc/quantum/rootwrap.conf"
"root_helper = sudo quantum-rootwrap /etc/quantum/rootwrap.conf"

and it's working.

  * debain/*.postrm: Fix argument-less calls to update-rc.d, redirect
    to /dev/null. (LP: #1047560)
  * debian/quantum-server.upstart: Invoke start-stop-daemon properly.
    (LP: #1047404)
  * debain/*.postrm, *.upstart: Ensure files are named for corresponding
    agent package, not plugin package.
  * debian/control:
    - Group agents with plugins.
    - Fix some copy/paste mistakes.
    - Set dependencies between agents and corresponding plugins.
    - Recommend quantum-plugin-openvswitch for quantum-server.
    - Require the same version of quantum-common and python-quantum.
    - Add quantum-netns-cleanup utility to quantum-common.
  * debian/patches/fix-quantum-configuration.patch: Use correct database
    for linuxbridge plugin, use OVS plugin by default, call quantum-rootwrap
    correctly. (LP: #1048668)
  * Fix all use of /usr/sbin, things should go in /usr/bin.
  * Remove dhcp and l3 plugins, they are not actually plugins.
  * Rename packages quantum-plugin-{l3, dhcp}-agent to
    quantum-{l3, dhcp}-agent.
  * debain/quantum-*-agent.upstart: Specify config files as a
    parameter to --config-file, specify log files for all.
  * debian/*.logrotate: Add logrotate configs for server and agents.
  * Install quantum_sudoers with quantum-common, not quantum-server.
  * Install rootwrap filters only with the packages that require them.
  * debian/*-agent.upstart: Specify --config-file=/etc/quantum/quantum.conf
    in addition to plugin-specific config. Specify log files for all agents.
  * Allow group 'adm' read access to /var/log/quantum.
  * debian/quantum-server.postinst: Drop, all has been moved to quantum-common.
  * Add packaging for quantum-plugin-nec.
