OpenStack Test Day

Date 2013-04-02
Time all day

IRC #fedora-test-day (webirc)

Can't make the dates?
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

This is a Fedora 19 test day, but we have OpenStack Grizzly packages available for both Fedora 19 and Fedora 18. It would be advisable to download and install your Fedora 18 or Fedora 19 test systems before the test day if possible.

Fedora 19

Please record common Fedora 19 issues here:

  • System doesn't boot after install until /run is manually created #922988
  • Screen blanking/locking can't be undone. So disable immediately on first boot #923364
  • If you have an F18, machine, since F19 is branched, you can update to f19 using the below way:
yum update yum; yum clean all ; yum --releasever=19 distro-sync --nogpgcheck -y;

Fedora 18

Recent Fedora 18 live image respins can be used to install a bare metal or virtual machine.

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


SELinux should work with OpenStack services. If there are issues you can disable like:

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

Test day only Please use the official Fedora repositories otherwise

 sudo curl -o /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-openstack-grizzly.repo

So now the yum repositories are in place, so we'll install packstack. This can install all OpenStack services on a single node, including: nova, glance, quantum, cinder, swift, keystone, dashboard, ceilometer. Note it configures and enables all but the quantum and ceilometer services at this time: Packstack is not working on F19

 sudo yum install -y openstack-packstack
 sudo packstack --gen-answer-file=ans.txt
 # edit ans.txt as required
 sudo packstack --answer-file=ans.txt

packstack known issues :

 # packstack fails to start keystone, if you hit a keystone error during the packstack run, change the permission of the keystone log file and rerun packstack (rhbz#946915)
 sudo chown keystone:keystone /var/log/keystone/keystone.log
 # if sometimes outputs an erorr when trying to start tdtd if this happens start it manually and rerun packstack
 sudo systemctl start tgtd

Alternatively one can use the openstack-demo-install script to do the install:

 sudo yum install -y openstack-utils
 sudo openstack-demo-install

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

Now copy the keystonerc file created by the install script above to your home directory, so that it can be easily sourced to provide the credentials used by the various OpenStack command line utilities.

 sudo cp /root/keystonerc ~
 # or if using packstack
 sudo cp /root/keystonerc_admin ~

Known issues

Setup OpenStack volumes

The OpenStack volume service provides persistent block level storage to instances.

This is a commonly used service automatically setup by packstack. If you ran openstack-demo-install instead please enable by following:

Setup 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.

Enable Quantum networking

Note if packstack was used then you need to terminate nova networking. This is done as follows:

  service openstack-nova-network stop
  chkconfig openstack-nova-network off

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,openstack-quantum, openstack-swift or openstack-heat or openstack-ceilometer 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.
