Description

Using EC2, Foreman doesn't resolve the OS templates on the first try. After completely configuring the host, both 'Resolve' and the main 'submit' error out: "Sorry but no templates were configured." and "Unable to save
No finish templates were found for this host, make sure you define at least one in your Ubuntu 14.04 settings"

If it is submitted again, with no changes(*), it will resolve correctly and build the host. (The 'resolve' button also works immediately after the error.)

(* No changes except redoing the lost network config, since it resets the interface subnet/etc when submit is clicked.)

Initial submit:

#3 Updated by Dominic Cleal over 4 years ago

  • Category set to Host creation
  • Status changed from Need more information to New

Thanks for checking.

Both of the errors you mention probably come from the same thing, which looks like a missing image selection. The create log has this section:

"compute_attributes"=>{"flavor_id"=>"t2.small", "availability_zone"=>"", "subnet_id"=>"subnet-12345", "security_group_ids"=>[""], "managed_ip"=>"private"},

It should contain an "image_id" attribute too. Here's mine:

"compute_attributes"=>{"flavor_id"=>"m1.small", "availability_zone"=>"", "subnet_id"=>"", "security_group_ids"=>[""], "managed_ip"=>"public", "image_id"=>"ami-e4ff5c93"}

Perhaps the image selection isn't appearing for you? Please check the operating system tab after you select the compute resource - there should be an image selection between the operating system dropdown and the root password box. If it's missing or empty then this might explain the missing attribute and subsequent errors.

Is the dropdown missing or empty, but then appears after pressing Submit and getting the error?

#4 Updated by Dis McCarthy over 4 years ago

In the older versions, that was usually populating as normal even with failure. I am getting very inconsistent results today, however.

I've been trying two tests. "Quick", where I just populate the minimum to try to demonstrate the problem. (Location, Deploy To, Environment and Compute Profile.) On the majority of the "quick" tests, it is working as expected with the dropdown being available and holding the image.

The more complete test I'm trying is a real deployment workflow - configure each tab, move to the next. I am getting it failing both ways most of the time. One test, it didn't populate the field or activate the drop-down. On a later attempt, the image populated automatically but the resolve button still errored out. (See attachment.)

#5 Updated by Dominic Cleal over 4 years ago

  • Subject changed from Foreman doesn't resolve templates on the first try to OS image field disabled during host creation, causing finish template error

Yeah, the image shows the dropdown is disabled which means the field isn't going to be sent to the server, causing the error. Some of the dropdown selections on the form, particularly deploy on and locations/orgs, will cause AJAX calls to the server to refresh data. It might be if you're changing them quickly that something isn't fully loading before the next dropdown is changed.

The image field should refresh when items such as host group, OS and architecture are changed.
