Hi, I noticed latest version (openvz-iso-7.0.7-359.iso) comes with factory repo enabled, but in the factory.repo says it is only for developers.

What should we do?

Thank you!

Dear javii,

it is our fail,
factory repository should be disabled in stable branch.

We're going to release updated version soon,
right now please disable factory repo manually.

Thank you for reporting this issue,
sorry for our mistake,
Vasily Averin

Hello Vasily,

Have multiple systems on a fresh install with all factory packages. Looks like those will be for 7.0.8?

Can you let us know when this version will become stable?

Thanks!

vz7 update 8 is expected in month or even later.
However we're going to release an hotfix for update 7 with kernel fixes for "pop ss" and recent "Speculative Store Bypass" issues,
so we'll publish updated openvz7.0.7 iso image with disabled factory repo.

Thanks for your quick response. It seems to be that the factory packages are directly retrieved from the latest CentOS 7, including latest kernel patches with vz7.50.1. So looks that only risk would be in the packges for virutozzo?

Hmm,

I'm not sure that I understand your question correctly.

Let's take look at
https://download.openvz.org/virtuozzo/factory/x86_64/os/repo view/

I see here our new kernel, guest tools, dispatcher, criu, libvirt, vzctl and anaconda,
and I do not see here any packages directly retrieved from the latest CentOS 7.

We should not break original CentOS7 functionality (at least I hope so),
but our own packages included into factory are not well tested.

To confirm, /etc/yum.repos.d has (among others):

- factory.repo
- openvz.repo
- vzlinux.repo

We are to disable everything in factory.repo as well as any entry with factory in the name (like virtuozzolinux-factory) found in vzlinux.repo -- does that sound accurate?

I have one machine with the following error:
May 23 21:33:26 ovz7 kernel: BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at 00000000ffffffec
<freeze / downtime>
May 25 21:29:55 ovz7 journal: Runtime journal is using 8.0M (max allowed 150.0M, trying to leave 2.3G free of 15.6G available → current limit 150.0M).

Is this the dev-kernel? The machine sometimes freezes with this kernel bug.
3.10.0-693.21.1.vz7.47.4 #1 SMP Sat Apr 28 11:48:07 MSK 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I'm testing: 3.10.0-693.21.1.vz7.46.7 now.

Please check /var/crash directory, it should contain subdirectory with vmcore and vmcore-dmesg.txt files.
you you do not have such subdirectory -- please enable kdump service.

Then please submit bug into bugs.openvz.org

Since we never got a response from Virtuozzo devs (despite the factory repo being enabled being their screw-up) here's what fixes it:

yum-config-manager --disable factory
yum-config-manager --disable virtuozzolinux-openvz-factory
yum-config-manager --disable virtuozzolinux-factory

yum distribution-synchronization


Then reboot the node to ensure it boots into the new (security patched) kernel. The yum distribution-synchronization command will both install the newest kernel release and ensure all packages are no longer from factory.
