Bug Description


# Context:
I'm working on the podman integration, and the issue is located on the undercloud.

I'm using a tweaked t-h-t with the following patches embedded:
- https://review.openstack.org/#/c/611801/
- https://review.openstack.org/#/c/606975/

and a tweaked puppet-tripleo with the following patches:
- https://review.openstack.org/#/c/606095/

SELinux is enforcing.

# Issue:
Apparently, neutron has some issues starting its children, especially a dhcp-agent:

This situation leads to another issue:

The container id changes as apparently neutron tries to start a new one on top of it (as it detects it's crashed).
The container logs has this:
setting the network namespace "qdhcp-a0d28768-54d5-4761-8227-e00fd4e61391" failed: Invalid argument

Always linked to this problem, I get multiple occurrences of that error message:
dhcp-agent.log:2018-10-23 14:30:53.543 59430 ERROR neutron.agent.linux.external_process [-] dnsmasq for dhcp with uuid a0d28768-54d5-4761-8227-e00fd4e61391 not found. The process should not have died

On the host, I can't find the tap interface:
[root@undercloud neutron]# ip a | grep -c tap

which means it doesn't exist for some reason.

Now, I said SELinux is enforcing - but apparently, this doesn't play anything for the issue: I don't have anything in the audit.log

Can anyone point me where to look in order to understand what container/service should create the "tap" interface? I'm pretty sure it's the root cause of the issues I face.

Thank you!

Small update:
in fact the tap interface exists, it's managed by OVS, and not shown by `ip a' command:

[root@undercloud log]# ovs-vsctl list-ports br-int

I suspect an issue accessing to the openvswith socket - not sure though. Nothing seems to raise an error with that so far.

Cédric Jeanneret (cjeanner) wrote :

Running the ovs-vsctl command from within neutron containers does return the tap device. So not an issue with access to the openvswitch data.

Still digging...

OK, the "real" issue is apparently here:

The dhcp-agent container wants to spawn that command through another container, the very one that exits with a non-0 status.

A "podman inspect <said container>" shows that, apparently, no SELinux tags are added to the volumes, and this can be the root cause of the issue, especially for those ones:

                "destination": "/run/netns",
                "type": "bind",
                "source": "/run/netns",
                "options": [
                "destination": "/var/lib/neutron",
                "type": "bind",
                "source": "/var/lib/neutron",
                "options": [

The /var/lib/neutron should be "shared,z", as well as the "/run/netns", as those two are shared with different containers, hence with different SELinux contexts/namespace.

Apparently correcting the flags in this change should do the trick:

So, SELinux flag aren't involved in this current issue - Brent apparently has the same issue on a permissive selinux.

Digging further, trying to run this:
ip -d netns exec qdhcp-3c92f030-45b4-4927-a83f-b2141a18877f bash

This should allow to "enter" the network namespace. Result is "clear":

So.... Some more stuff:

- deleting the qdhcp-xxx and letting neutron_dhcp re-create it doesn't make it batter.
- creating the qdhcp-xxx by hand and letting neutron_dhcp do its stuff doesn't help either

But, deleting the qdhcp-xx and letting neutron_dhcp re-create it allows to get the commands, more or less.

In order:
(3, 'neutron.privileged.agent.linux.ip_lib.create_netns', (u'qdhcp-3c92f030-45b4-4927-a83f-b2141a18877f',), {})

shell is: ip netns add qdhcp-xxx

['ip', 'netns', 'exec', 'qdhcp-3c92f030-45b4-4927-a83f-b2141a18877f', 'sysctl', '-w', 'net.ipv4.conf.all.promote_secondaries=1']

shell is the same, without quotes, of course

(3, 'neutron.privileged.agent.linux.ip_lib.set_link_attribute', ('lo', u'qdhcp-3c92f030-45b4-4927-a83f-b2141a18877f'), {'state': 'up'})

shell is: ip link set lo up netns qdhcp-3c92f030-45b4-4927-a83f-b2141a18877f

And there, we have a first failure:
RTNETLINK answers: Invalid argument

Also reported from the log itself:
(4, [{'header': {'pid': 24464, 'length': 36, 'flags': 0, 'error': None, 'type': 2, 'sequence_number': 255}, 'event': 'NLMSG_ERROR'}])

['ip', 'netns', 'exec', 'qdhcp-3c92f030-45b4-4927-a83f-b2141a18877f', 'sysctl', '-w', 'net.ipv6.conf.default.accept_ra=0']

shell is the same, without quotes.

(3, 'neutron.privileged.agent.linux.ip_lib.get_link_attributes', (u'tape2d00740-20', u'qdhcp-3c92f030-45b4-4927-a83f-b2141a18877f')

shell is: (don't know, there isn't ip link get <device> netns qdhcp-xxx)

We get: Network interface tape2d00740-20 not found in namespace qdhcp-3c92f030-45b4-4927-a83f-b2141a18877f.

(3, 'neutron.privileged.agent.linux.ip_lib.set_link_attribute', (u'tape2d00740-20', None), {'address': u'fa:16:3e:07:55:2c'})

shell is: ip link set tape2d00740-20 address fa:16:3e:07:55:2c

there again, failure:
(4, [{'header': {'pid': 4294961794, 'length': 36, 'flags': 0, 'error': None, 'type': 2, 'sequence_number': 255}, 'event': 'NLMSG_ERROR'}])

and from the shell: Cannot find device "tape2d00740-20"

(3, 'neutron.privileged.agent.linux.ip_lib.set_link_attribute', (u'tape2d00740-20', None), {'net_ns_fd': u'qdhcp-3c92f030-45b4-4927-a83f-b2141a18877f'})

shell is: ??

failure: (4, [{'header': {'pid': 4294961791, 'length': 36, 'flags': 0, 'error': None, 'type': 2, 'sequence_number': 255}, 'event': 'NLMSG_ERROR'}])

and so on.

So apparently there's an issue linking OVS managed interfaces with netns.

    Fix wrapper containers for podman w/o sockets

    Adapt wrapper containers for podman, which has no a socket available.

    Add container_cli parameter for base neutron class, default to docker.
    Possible values: podman/docker (default). It is used by the wrappers
    tooling to issue CLI commands to the host containers system.
    Deprecate bind_socket so it does nothing for podman CLI.

    Additionally, add debug triggers for the wrapper scripts messages to
    become captured to the wrapper containers' stdout.

    Do not stop and remove the existing container before launching a new
    one. Allow the neutron parent process to control the process life
    cycle. Although make the wraper containers cleaning up any exited
    containers after its main process terminated by the neutron parent
    process. Additionally, If a name is already taken by a container,
    give it an unique name and assume all the smooth transitioning work
    to be done by the parent neutron process and that clean up logic
    in the wrapper.
