|Cloud/Atomic Test Day|
What to test?
Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Fedora Atomic and Cloud images
The following cast of characters will be available testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion ...
Prerequisite for Test Day
A fresh system (for Fedora Atomic Host), testcloud to test qcow images locally, or access to a cloud provider like OpenStack or AWS ... a desire to break software?
Fedora Atomic Host (FAH)
FAH can be run as a traditional cloud image, or installed to bare metal. If you have a spare machine you can install FAH to, please test this FIXME with link to FAH installer ISO. Download the image, write it to a USB stick and install like any other Fedora deliverable. If you need help, please ping in IRC.
The Fedora Cloud base image and Atomic images are also delivered as qcow2 images. You can use testcloud to locally boot and test either of these images. You can run testcloud from a git checkout, or use dnf to install it:
sudo dnf install testcloud
Once it's installed, you can run testcloud like so:
testcloud instance create <name of instance> -u <url to qcow image>
How to test?
This testday is more general, so attempt to do anything and everything with these images :) Specifically though, we'd like to take a look at the following scenarios:
- Deploy applications on top of Atomic
- Upgrades and downgrades of existing Atomic Hosts (preferably with applications running)
- Package layering with on top of the base Atomic OSTree
- Test different cloud-init configs
- Deploy and run some applications in the cloud
Run the tests
Visit the result page and click on the column title links to see the tests that need to be run: most column titles are links to a specific test case. Follow the instructions there, then enter your results by clicking the Enter result button for the test.
This testday is also meant to be exploratory, so the list on the testday app is not at all comprehensive!
If you find anything that seems wrong or off, please report a bug on Bugzilla. The affected component should be clear from whatever error message you happen to find, but if you aren't sure what component to file against, please file it against FIXME. 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.
Please enter your results on the result page. The results will be transferred here after the Test Day is finished.
