Oracle VM Job for Creating a Repository on NFS Storage does not Complete and the Job Keeps Running until Aborted (Doc ID 2415046.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.4.4 and later
Linux x86-64

Symptoms

The job to create the repository keeps on running.
The repository gets mounted on one server when the job is still running and we can see that all the repository files are also created.
The job keeps on running till it is aborted.

From OVMCLI we can see that the job is still running.

OVM> create Repository name=xxxxxxxxx on FileSystem id=337531b2-110b-4d49-b2f2-0ff591ff04a6

Command: create Repository name=xxxxxxxxx on FileSystem id=337531b2-110b-4d49-b2f2-0ff591ff04a6

OVM> show job id=1528959600621
Command: show job id=1528959600621

Job Group = No
Username = appframework
Creation Time = Jun 14, 2018 9:00:00 am
Start Time = Jun 14, 2018 9:00:00 am
Id = 1528959600621 [Create Repository: xxxxxxxxx on File System: nfs on xx.xx.xx.xx:/nfsshare]
Name = Create Repository: xxxxxxxxx on File System: nfs on xx.xx.xx.xx:/nfsshare
Description = Create Repository: xxxxxxxxx on File System: nfs on xx.xx.xx.xx:/nfsshare
Locked = false

From the OVM Manager GUI session expires and logging in again shows the job still running in the Jobs tab.

Reformatting the share from the NFS server and retrying also results in the same issue.

Looking under the mount for the new repository on the server shows that the files are created.

[root@xxxxxxxxx ~]# ls -la /OVS/Repositories/<UUID>
total 8
drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 137 Jun 20 09:59 .
drwx------ 13 root root 4096 Jun 20 09:59 ..

Also, trying to manually mount the nfs share on another directory was succeeding without issue using both nfsv3 and nfsv4
