This week, we went through the appliances in the OpenNebula Marketplace (https://marketplace.opennebula.org/appliance) and removed those which didn’t work anymore or were too old. We’ll do such checks and cleanups from time to time.
Unfortunately, if you have the OpenNebula 5.x (currently 5.0 - 5.2.1) deployed, this cleanup can require also an action on your side. These versions don’t clean locally synced appliances metadata properly, appliances are still seen and must be deleted manually. The bug will be fixed in following ONE stable releases.
There are 2 options how to workaround the problem:
Fix directly your database by cleaning the table marketplaceapp_pool and restart OpenNebula daemons. Please, don’t forget to make a database backup always before any database changes.
- connect the database configured in the /etc/one/oned.conf (section DB=) and clean the table. Examples:
mysql -u oneadmin -p -e 'DELETE FROM marketplaceapp_pool' opennebula_db
sqlite3 /var/lib/one/one.db 'DELETE FROM marketplaceapp_pool'
- check there is no activity in the OpenNebula (running action on VM, image etc.) and restart the daemon:
systemctl restart opennebula or /etc/init.d/opennebula restart
If you don’t have direct access to the database, you can disable and rename obsolete appliances via the CLI (
onemarketapp). Appliances will be still listed, but users won’t be able to use it.
Before we did the cleanup, we injected the obsoleting metadata so that the appliances can be easily identified on a client side. On first sight, these appliances have zero size and placeholder “DELETED” instead of version. E.g.:
$ onemarketapp list ID NAME VERSION SIZE STAT TYPE REGTIME MARKET ZONE ... 11 CentOS 6.5 - Xen DELETED 0M rdy img 08/12/14 OpenNebula Public 0
The following commands take these appliances and
- disable them
- put "DELETED - " prefix into the appliance name
onemarketapp list --csv --filter VERSION=DELETED | \ grep -v ID,NAME | cut -d, -f2 | \ xargs -d"\n" -I% -n1 bash -c 'onemarketapp disable "%"; onemarketapp rename "%" "DELETED - %" '
If you are done with any of previous 2 choices, you can check the results in the Sunstone (Storage -> Apps) or via CLI (
onemarketapp list). The list should be reduced or obsolete appliances are disabled.
We are sorry for any inconveniences. Please, leave us a message here in case you experience any problems and/or would like to discuss any steps.
