2016-09-02Drivers: hv: utils: Check VSS daemon is listening before a hot backupAlex Ng
Hyper-V host will send a VSS_OP_HOT_BACKUP request to check if guest is ready for a live backup/snapshot. The driver should respond to the check only if the daemon is running and listening to requests. This allows the host to fallback to standard snapshots in case the VSS daemon is not running.

2014-11-26Tools: hv: vssdaemon: report freeze errorsVitaly Kuznetsov
When ioctl(fd, FIFREEZE, 0) results in an error we cannot report it to syslog instantly since that can cause write to a frozen disk. However, the name of the filesystem which caused the error and errno are valuable and we would like to get a nice human-readable message in the log. Save errno before calling vss_operate(VSS_OP_THAW) and report the error right after. Unfortunately, FITHAW errors cannot be reported the same way as we need to finish thawing all filesystems before calling syslog(). We should also avoid calling endmntent() for the second time in case we encountered an error during freezing of '/' as it usually results in SEGSEGV.

2014-11-07tools: hv: introduce -n/--no-daemon optionVitaly Kuznetsov
All tools/hv daemons do mandatory daemon() on startup. However, no pidfile is created, this make it difficult for an init system to track such daemons. Modern linux distros use systemd as their init system. It can handle the daemonizing by itself, however, it requires a daemon to stay in foreground for that. Some distros already carry distro-specific patch for hv tools which switches off daemon(). Introduce -n/--no-daemon option for all 3 daemons in hv/tools. Parse options with getopt() to make this part easily expandable. Signed-off-by: Vitaly Kuznetsov <vkuznets@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: K. Y.

2014-11-07Tools: hv: vssdaemon: ignore the EBUSY on multiple freezing the same partitionDexuan Cui
If a partition appears mounted more than once in /proc/mounts, vss_do_freeze() succeeds only for the first time and gets EBUSY (on freeze) or EINVAL (on thaw) for the second time. The patch ignores these to make the backup feature work. Also improved the error handling in case a freeze operation fails. Signed-off-by: Dexuan Cui <decui@microsoft.com> Reviewed-by: K. Y.

2013-08-12Tools: hv: correct payload size in netlink_sendOlaf Hering
netlink_send is supposed to send just the cn_msg+hv_kvp_msg via netlink. Currently it sets an incorrect iovec size, as reported by valgrind. In the case of registering with the kernel the allocated buffer is large enough to hold nlmsghdr+cn_msg+hv_kvp_msg, no overrun happens. In the case of responding to the kernel the cn_msg is located in the middle of recv_buffer, after the nlmsghdr. Currently the code in netlink_send adds also the size of nlmsghdr to the payload. But nlmsghdr is a separate iovec. This leads to an (harmless) out-of-bounds access when the kernel processes the iovec. Correct the iovec size of the cn_msg to be just cn_msg + its payload.

2013-08-02Tools: hv: fix send/recv buffer allocationOlaf Hering
hv_kvp_daemon fails to start in current openSuSE 13.1 snapshots because the kvp_send_buffer is too small to hold cn_msg+hv_kvp_msg, the very first sendmsg returns with EFAULT. In addition it fixes the Network info tab in Windows Server 2012R2 in SLES11. Adjust the code in kvp and vss daemon to allocate the needed buffers at runtime. To keep the code simple, the buffer_len includes also the nlmsghdr, although only the recv_buffer needs this extra space. Signed-off-by: Olaf Hering <olaf@aepfle.de> Signed-off-by: K. Y.

2013-03-15Drivers: hv: Add a new driver to support host initiated backupK. Y. Srinivasan
This driver supports host initiated backup of the guest. On Windows guests, the host can generate application consistent backups using the Windows VSS framework. On Linux, we ensure that the backup will be file system consistent. This driver allows the host to initiate a "Freeze" operation on all the mounted file systems in the guest. Once the mounted file systems in the guest are frozen, the host snapshots the guest's file systems. Once this is done, the guest's file systems are "thawed". This driver has a user-level component (daemon) that invokes the appropriate operation on all the mounted file systems in response to the requests from the host. The duration for which the guest is frozen is very short - a few seconds. During this interval, the diff disk is comitted. In this version of the patch I have addressed the feedback from Olaf Herring. Also, some of the connector related issues have been fixed. Signed-off-by: K. Y.
