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.

What to test?[edit]

Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Fedora Atomic and Cloud images

Who's available[edit]

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

Prerequisite for Test Day[edit]

A fresh system, testcloud to test qcow images locally, or access to a cloud provider like OpenStack or AWS, and a desire to break software.

Fedora Atomic[edit]

Fedora Atomic Host (FAH) can be run as a traditional cloud image, or installed to bare metal. Feel free to try out the cloud images locally as a VM. If you have a spare machine you can install FAH to, please test the ISO image (link in table below). Download the image, write it to a USB stick, and install like any other Fedora deliverable. If you need help, please ping one of the test day organizers in IRC.

Qcow2 images[edit]

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 -y testcloud

Once it's installed, you can run testcloud like so:

testcloud instance create <name of instance> -u imag.qcow2

You can also boot qcow2 images using virtualization clients like virt-manager or VirtualBox with instruction provided here

How to test?[edit]

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
  • Install Kubernetes, via ansible or kubeadm


  • Test different cloud-init configs
  • Deploy and run some applications in the cloud

EC2 If you have access to Amazon EC2, you can use one of the AMIs listed above for testing.

Run the tests[edit]

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!

Reporting bugs[edit]

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, ask in IRC. 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.
