Prerequisite for Test Day
Fedora Cloud Base
This section is for the Fedora Cloud Base images, which can be used to run a yum/dnf based fedora in the cloud or as a VM. There are also Vagrant boxes available.
|Image||Image URL||Checksum URLs|
|Fedora Cloud qcow2|
|Fedora Cloud raw|
|Fedora Cloud Vagrant libvirt|
|Fedora Cloud Vagrant VirtualBox|
If you have access to an AWS account then please try out an AMI from the following list:
Fedora-Cloud-Base-33-20200928.n.0.aarch64 us-east-1 ami-0d5119385855a5b84 hvm standard Fedora-Cloud-Base-33-20200928.n.0.x86_64 us-east-1 ami-0734d4b20fa7e6a19 hvm gp2 Fedora-Cloud-Base-33-20200928.n.0.x86_64 us-east-1 ami-0dfdfc56c163ebc71 hvm standard
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.
The Fedora Cloud Base image 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?
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:
- 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
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, ask in IRC.
