My setup comprises of ceph mimic (centos 7, setup with ceph-ansible), cinder/keystone combo on pike release, and ovirt 4.2.5.1.

The external cinder provider is setup and I can create disks.

When creating a vm and starting it, the VM shows up in the ovirt dashboard as "wait for launch"

on the ovirt node, that is supposed to run the VM I checked libvirt:

# virsh --readonly list

 Id    Name                           State
----------------------------------------------------
14    testceph                       paused

checking the domain configuration also seems ok... Most important the ceph mons are given in the disk configuration.

# virsh --readonly dumpxml

And yes. I can see the ovirt node and the ceph node talk to each other. But the ovirt node is only talking to the ceph monitor. There is no OSD involved. Both nodes can talk to each other, jumbo frames are allowed and working. In this output the ceph monitor is 192.168.20.21 and the ovirt node is 192.168.20.11

And this goes on and on until the qemu log on the ovirt nodes shows:

So what keeps ovirt and ceph keep from talking ? The image introduction via cinder is done, but somehow ovirt is not contacting the ceph osds...

There seems to be a problem with the librbd1 library that is coming along with centos 7 which is the base of oVirt 4.2.x. It is too old to play along with ceph V13.x aka mimic and probably also V12 luminous.

See this post from the oVirt forms for a discussion about this problem.

There is a way to upgrade the libraries.
