Bug Description

The test_KillFilter test case in nova.tests.test_nova_rootwrap fails on Fedora 17. The reason is because the test assumes that 'sleep' is '/bin/sleep'. On Fedora 17 it is '/usr/bin/sleep'. The test should just allow both.

** Impact **

Nova testuite currently fails on Fedora 17.

** Development Fix **

This has been addressed in trunk: https://review.openstack.org/6995 and fixed in quantal

** Stable Fix **

This has been addressed in stable/essex: https://review.openstack.org/7382

** Test Case **


** Regression Impact **

Minimal this only affects the testsuite on fedora 17 and does not affect the testsuite on Ubuntu.

Please find the attached Jenkins job results from the Ubuntu Server Team's CI
infrastructure. As part of the verification process for this bug, Nova has
been deployed and configured across multiple nodes using precise-proposed as
an installation source. After successful bring-up and configuration of the
cluster, a number of exercises and smoke tests have be invoked to ensure the
updated package did not introduce any regressions. A number of test iterations
were carried out to catch any possible transient errors.

Note the list of installed packages at the top and bottom of the report.

For records of upstream test coverage of this update, please see the
Jenkins links in the comments of the relevant upstream code-review:


As per the provisional Micro Release Exception granted to this package by
the Technical Board, we hope this contributes toward verification of this
