OpenStack Test Days

Date 2012-09-18
Time all day

IRC #fedora-openstack (webirc)

Can't make the date?
If you come to this page before or after the test day is completed, your testing is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test, file any bugs you find at Bugzilla, and add your results to the results section. If this page is more than a month old when you arrive here, please check the current schedule and see if a similar but more recent Test Day is planned or has already happened.

Who's available

The following cast of characters will be available testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion ...

Prerequisite for Test Day

  • Hardware virtualization support (e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V).
  • Up to 10-20Gb free disk space. Guest images take up a lot of space.
Hardware Requirements
You can do basic testing of OpenStack in a virtual machine, which is auto detected by the install script below

Note you can install the OpenStack Folsom packages on either Fedora 17 or Fedora 18, depending on your interest in the base operating system.

Fedora 17

Fedora 18

Please record common Fedora 18 issues here:

    • Video doesn't work in a VM unless video type is set to 'vga' #848930
    • Auto partitioning wipes the disk without warning #855976
    • The installing packages step can take over 30 minutes #856993

How to test?

Follow the steps below to prepare the machine, then follow each of the test cases in order.

Configure sudo

Add your account to sudoers, which can be done from a root prompt like:

 (umask 337; echo "non_root_user ALL = (ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL" > /etc/sudoers.d/testday)

Update your machine

Make sure you have all the current updates for it installed:

 sudo yum --enablerepo=updates-testing clean all
 sudo yum update -y

Optionally Load nbd

If you don't perform this optional step, then libguestfs will be used to inject files into qcow2 images. Note however that is slower, especially if testing openstack within a VM

sudo modprobe nbd
echo nbd | sudo tee -a /etc/modules-load.d/nbd.conf

Put SELinux into Permissive Mode

While SELinux mostly works with OpenStack services there are a few issues

sudo sed -i 's/^SELINUX=.*/SELINUX=permissive/' /etc/selinux/config
sudo setenforce permissive

Please do note any AVC _denials_ you see in /var/log/audit/audit.log and file them in bugzilla, and update this list:

Install and setup all Openstack services on a single node

 sudo wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-openstack-folsom.repo
 sudo yum install openstack-utils

So now the yum repositories are in place as is the openstack-demo-install script. This script will install all OpenStack services on a single node, including: nova, glance, quantum, cinder, swift, keystone, dashboard. Note it configures and enables all but the quantum service at this time:

 sudo openstack-demo-install

Note this is a major test in itself, so please record any issues encountered.

Setup OpenStack volumes

The OpenStack volume service provides persistent block level storage to instances. This is a commonly used service, so please enable using QA:Testcase_Create_Cinder_Volumes

Install and setup Quantum on a single node

As an option, you can replace the network manager internal to the OpenStack Nova project with Quantum. To enable follow QA:Testcase_Quantum_V2#Setup

Test Cases

Basic setup:

  1. Add SSH keypair
  2. Register guest images
  3. Create nova network

Core functionality:

  1. Launch an instance
  2. Attach a volume
  3. Floating IPs
  4. Separate compute node

Nova boot-from-volume:

  1. Create and boot from a bootable volume
  2. Create an image from a running volume-backed instance

Quantum functionality:

  1. Configure and use a network topology in Quantum

Swift functionality:

  1. Upload and download files
  2. Upload Segmented File
  3. Test Auditor/Replicator
  4. Add Storage Device to ring

Dashboard functionality:

  1. Basic dashboard setup and login
  2. Launch/terminate an instance with the dashboard
  3. Managing projects and users with the dashboard
  4. VNC access to instances through the dashboard

Extra credit:

  1. Tempest tests
  2. Build an image with Oz
  3. Smoke tests

Test Results

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla usually for one of the openstack-nova, openstack-glance, openstack-keystone, openstack-cinder or openstack-swift components. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report or what other information to include, just ask on IRC and we will help you.

Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from the first line as a template. The first column should be your name with a link to your User page in the Wiki if you have one. For each test case, use the result template to enter your result, as shown in the example result line.
