Re: [Rdo-list] OpenStack upgrade Icehouse Centos 6 best practice



Hello,

Here some more insights and questions:

We have in total 4 separate clouds who need the upgrade with each more than
100 compute nodes. We just use the basic services like nova, keystone,
neutron, glance and horizon. No Cinder, heat, trove etc. Our network setup
is flat provider network, which means we don't use the neutron router. All
in all the from the openstack service perspective a minimal setup.

One of our cloud is set up as HA with two management nodes (keystone, nova,
horizon, glance) behind a haproxy. It's not a big deal to have the same
setup implemented in all clouds if it's helpful for the upgrade

We don't think about upgrading from Centos 6 to 7. Instead build new Centos
7 compute nodes and move the VMs with live migration (is it a good idea?)

The database schemes changes between the openstack versions, what does it
affect? Let's say we set up a second management node wit Centos 7 and the
openstack Juno/Kilo services will it work against the Centos 6/Icehouse
compute nodes and the Icehouse DB schema?

Cheers,
Chris

That's a huge shift for one step! I suggest you split the OS and Openstack
upgrades into separate phases to simplify the job. I also don't think
upstream supports upgrades that skip a release or two. It may work, but
that's not guaranteed.

The usual assumption is that we support backwards compatibility for one
release, so you can stage your upgrades. Note that you should first upgrade
controller services, then agents/computes, not vice versa.
