cloudvps: neutron: investigate keepalived warning
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Today while checking logs for neutron in cloudnet2001-dev.codfw.wmnet, I found this warning related to keepalived:

Jan 21 12:52:54 cloudnet2001-dev sudo[16516]:  neutron : TTY=unknown ; PWD=/var/lib/neutron ; USER=root ; COMMAND=/usr/bin/neutron-rootwrap /etc/neutron/rootwrap.conf ip netns exec qrouter-5712e22e-134a-40d3-a75a-1c9b441717ad keepalived -P -f /var/lib/neutron/ha_confs/5712e22e-134a-40d3-a75a-1c9b441717ad/keepalived.conf -p /var/lib/neutron/ha_confs/ -r /var/lib/neutron/ha_confs/

I searched for this same warning in eqiad1 (cloudnet1003 and cloudnet1004) and couldn't find anything.

We don't seem to declare this user in puppet. Not sure if that's really required, since keepalived is being executed as root in the neutron netns.

Confirmed that this warning can safely be ignored.

Neutron is building the keepalived configuration in /var/lib/neutron/ha_confs/<UUID>/keepalived.conf and does not have a method to define the script_user configuration variable.

Also note that neutron expects keepalived to be running as root:

newton /etc/neutron/rootwrap.d/l3.filters
# Keepalived
keepalived: CommandFilter, keepalived, root
kill_keepalived: KillFilter, root, /usr/sbin/keepalived, -HUP, -15, -9

Thanks for investigating this!
