Last updated on OCTOBER 19, 2022

Applies to:

Private Cloud Appliance - Version 2.1.1 and later
Oracle VM - Version 3.0.1 and later

Linux x86-64


Deleting a repository fails on 1 server in the server pool
We see errors like the following:

Job Internal Error (Operation) OVMAPI_B000E Storage plugin command

'Unable to unmount filesystem "/OVS/Repositories/0004fb0000030000a77720a05d32bff1":
 umount: /OVS/Repositories/0004fb0000030000a77720a05d32bff1: device is busy

However, lsof lists no open files on the mountpoint

losetup -a does list loop devices using the repository:
/dev/loop13: [fc0b]:1871163 (/OVS/Repositories/0004fb0000030000a77720a05d32bff1/VirtualDisk*)
/dev/loop14: [fc0b]:1871162 (/OVS/Repositories/0004fb0000030000a77720a05d32bff1/VirtualDisk*)
/dev/loop16: [fc0b]:1871161 (/OVS/Repositories/0004fb0000030000a77720a05d32bff1/VirtualDisk*)
/dev/loop17: [fc0b]:1871157 (/OVS/Repositories/0004fb0000030000a77720a05d32bff1/VirtualDisk*)
/dev/loop18: [fc0b]:1871159 (/OVS/Repositories/0004fb0000030000a77720a05d32bff1/VirtualDisk*)

Checking which images are in use:
$ for file in `find /OVS/Repositories/0004fb0000030000a77720a05d32bff1/VirtualDisks` ; do USED=`losetup -j $file`; if [ "$USED" != "" ^C; then echo $USED; echo $file; echo ---- ; fi ;done
find: /OVS/Repositories/0004fb0000030000a77720a05d32bff1/VirtualDisks: No such file or directory

-> there are no images in use, the directory doesn't even exist
