- Install the Fedora Server release you wish to test, in graphical or text mode, making as few choices as possible and making the most simple and obvious choices where a choice is required.
- Note: disable updates-testing in anaconda
- If this is a VM, be aware of this Common Bug about available entropy.
- Disable the updates-testing repository for this test, as rolekit always performs an update and may get unsafe packages from that repository. We need to test the stable repo only.
dnf config-manager --set-disabled updates-testing
How to test
- Deploy the role with
rolectl deploy (rolename) --name=instancename
- Query the role with
rolectl status (instancename)and
rolectl settings (instancename)
rolectl sanitize (instancename)and then
rolectl settings (instancename)to verify that passwords have been removed.
- If possible, attempt to interact with the role in expected ways - for example, if it is a database server, attempt to connect to it and create a database
- Stop the role with
rolectl stop (instancename)
- Decommission the role with
rolectl decommission (instancename)
- Role deployment must complete successfully
- The deployed role must start successfully
- Typical basic interaction with the deployed role must work correctly
- The deployed role must report its status and configuration settings correctly
- The deployed role must not report password data in settings after being sanitized
- The deployed role must stop correctly
- The deployed role must decommission correctly and not leave anything behind that prevents a new deployment.
