Description Tim Petersen univentionstaff 2015-06-19 10:18:20 CEST

If the DC master doesn't use eth[1,2,3,4] as primary interface, the AD takepover won't work because of the usage of an unreferenced variable new_interface.

See /usr/share/pyshared/univention/management/console/modules/adtakeover/takeover.py:

l1585ff. def create_virtual_IP_alias()

If you have a brief look you can see, that this only works with eth[1,2,3,4] - at the customer system, a bonding configuraiton with br0 was used - the takeover failed with:
"new_interface: variable referenced before assignment"

Since UCS 4.0 br0 is default when using bridged scenarios (for example each UVMM host). More not so important side effects:
- wlan?
- ipv6

We should improve the whole function.

I ment eth[0,1,2,3] of course ;)
Comment 2 Drees Dormann univentionstaff 2015-08-04 11:05:31 CEST
AD takover should now use all kind of interfaces referenced in ucr to find the primary interface (including br*, wlan*, etc)

Please also merge to UCS 4.1-0

Comment 6 Felix Botner univentionstaff 2015-08-06 15:10:48 CEST
OK - takeover with bonding interface

With eth5 and eth5.1 (vlan) i got a new virt interface eth5.1:1 
This seems not correct. We should somehow ignore virt and vlan interfaces here. 

Also, iInterface in

  elif ip_version == 6:
    if "interfaces/%s/ipv6/default/address" % iInterface in self.ucr:

is "referenced before assignment".

Please revert the patch, but leave the "new_interface = None" at the beginning to avoid the "new_interface: variable referenced before assignment" error during takeover.

With that, takeover with bonding interfaces succeeds but without the virt interface for the ip of the old ad. But this is better than an aborted takeover.
Comment 7 Felix Botner univentionstaff 2015-08-06 16:07:33 CEST

OK - normal ad takeover (eth0)

FAIL - takeover with bonding => see Bug #39095
OK - reverted in 4.1-0
OK - reverted in 4.0-3
