RHEV: Hypervisor with local storage domain is unable to be activated after a reboot

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Hypervisor is using local storage domains and is unable to be activated after a reboot
  • Was following the steps in this knowledgebase article for what to do if there is a complete power outage
  • When trying to activate the storage first I get this error:
# action storagedomain qxskvmhyp2-Local activate --datacenter-identifier qxskvmhyp2-Local

status: 400
reason: Bad Request
detail: Error connecting to the Storage Pool Manager service.
Possible reasons:
 - Storage Pool Manager service is in non-active state.
 - No Active Host in the Data Center.
  • And then I am unable to activate host:
# action host qxskvmhyp2 activate
status-state: complete

# show host qxskvmhyp2 | grep statu
status-detail                                     : storage_domain_unreachable
status-state                                      : non_operational
  • In /var/log/messages on the hypervisor I see this error:
