[Solved] vdsm service won’t start

user1600936 Asks: vdsm service won’t start
I am currently evaluating Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and have managed to set up the management server and the bare metal hypervisor. Now I’m trying to add a regular box running RHEL server 6.5 to the data center as a host. The add new host process starts fine and installs all the packages successfully. But after a certain time it fails saying network communication failure. From /var/log/ovirt-engine/engine.log I figured out this was caused by vdsmd service not restarting properly on the target. And indeed when I manually try to start the service at the host itself, it fails.

Code:
# service vdsmd status
VDS daemon is not running, and its watchdog is running
# service vdsmd start
vdsm: already running                                      [  OK  ]
vdsm start                                                 [  OK  ]
# service vdsmd status
VDS daemon is not running, and its watchdog is running

The log has the following error:

Code:
Jul  8 16:34:46  respawn: slave '/usr/share/vdsm/vdsm --pidfile /var/run/vdsm/vdsmd.pid' died too quickly, respawning slave
Jul  8 16:34:47 python: vdsm user could not manage to run sudo operation: (stderr: ['sudo: sorry, you must have a tty to run sudo']). Verify sudoer rules configuration

I tried commenting out and removing the “Defaults requiretty” line in /etc/sudoers file, but I keep getting the same error.

As i’m evaluating RHEV, I am not entitled to Red Hat support and have to fix it myself.

Any ideas on what to do ?
