   The problem can occur if GE Adapter is running on a different host than qmaster
   If an host resource is assigned to the GE service that is not resolvable on qmaster
   host the resource goes into ERROR state. The following error message can be found
   in the log file:

   04/17/2009 14:44:19|33||W|Install
   execd on host domU-12-31-39-00-49-B7: step 'Make admin host' failed: Can not
   make host domU-12-31-39-00-49-B7 to admin host: jgdi error: Exception thrown in
   operation addAdminHost

   In such a situation GE Adapter should simply reject the resource. The 'Make
   admin host' step
   is the first step of the installation and if it fails the resource has not been
   The resource can be safely rejected.


   The problem can only occurs in a unrecommended setup (GE Adapter a qmaster not
   running on the same host).

   Suggested Fix/Work Around

   There is not work around known. If a unresolvable resource is assigned to GE service
   the resource goes into ERROR state. To solve the problem administrator must
   shutdown the GE service and delete the file

      <local spool dir>/spool/<name of ge service>/<name of unresolvable resource>.srf

   After restart of the GE service the resource has been disappeared.


   The problem is that the class ExecdInstallerBase$MakeAdminHostStep. It throws
   an InstallException instead of an InstallationNotPossibleException.

   How to test

   o Setup as system where GE adapter is not running on qmaster host
   o Define on the host where GE adapter is running dummy host in /etc/hosts
   o The resource which represents the dummy host to the system
   o Assign the resource to the GE adapter
   o It should be rejected

   ATC:  0.5 PD
   ETC:  3 PD

   The fix itself is easy, however the testsuite test can be tricky

   Starting from Hedeby 1.0u5 there is a different workaround available:

   to get rid of the resource in ERROR state, simply execute:

   sdmadm purge_resource -r <resource_name_or_id>

   No need to delete a file or to shutdown the GE service.
