a lot of beta cluster instances are not reachable over SSH
Closed, ResolvedPublic


A lot of instances in beta cluster are no more reachable over SSH because the LDAP server is no more trusted:

2017-07-20T07:48:13.225792+00:00 castor nslcd[604]: [d89a32] <group/member="puppet"> no available LDAP server found: Server is unavailable
[09:48:58]  <hashar>	failed to bind to LDAP server ldap://ldap-labs.eqiad.wikimedia.org:389: Connect error: (unknown error code)

The exact same issue happened on CI instances and I had to rebuild them from scratch

  • castor.integration.eqiad.wmflabs T171148
  • integration-slave-docker-1000 which I have rebuild from scratch).

Additionally the beta cluster puppet master was broken for most of the day. I eventually managed to fix it up by rewriting the puppet.conf from scratch and I have removed the puppet db config. So at least puppet works now which might or might not magically fix SSH to the instances.

For all instances that had puppet broken, I believe they are deadlocked now. We can try to reach them via salt and attempt to salvage them eg:

root@deployment-salt02:~# salt -v 'deployment-sca01*' cmd.run 'puppet agent -tv'

If puppet works, a project admin can add its SSH keys to the list of extra root keys on Hiera:Deployment-prep. Example: https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Hiera:Deployment-prep&diff=1765755&oldid=1763078

http://shinken.wmflabs.org/problems?search=deployment might offers a good perspective.

Now that puppet is fixed, you can either wait a few hours for puppet to run on all the instances or run the salt command. But you have to restart nscd and nslcd also too. or restart the instances through horizon webui.

So the state as I understand it right now:

The puppet master was broken, I had it fixed by removing the PuppetDB configuration and rebuilding the puppet.conf manually.

Any instance that had puppet failing did not receive the new WMF CA certificate. Thus Ssh -> pam_ldap can not connect to the labs LDAP and Ssh access is rejected.

A way to fix them is to use salt to connect, then check why puppet fails:

$ ssh deployment-saltmaster02.deployment-prep.eqiad.wmflabs
$ sudo salt -v <YOUR INSTANCE FQDN> cmd.run 'tail -n 50 /var/log/puppet.log'

From there the easiest is to:

  • remove the puppet classes from the instance (note them somewhere in order to restore them later).
  • run puppet from the salt master:
    • sudo salt -v <YOUR INSTANCE FQDN> cmd.run 'puppet agent -tv'

That should populate the proper WMF CA certificate.

Restart nslcd
sudo salt -v <YOUR INSTANCE FQDN> cmd.run 'systemctl restart nslcd'

Access should work again.

If the instance is not reachable via salt, fill a subtask and CC Cloud-VPS , they should be able to reach the instance via the KVM console.

I have removed faulty puppet classes, ran puppet, restarted nslcd and reapplied the puppet classes
