Description Arthur Enright 2015-10-29 22:19:36 UTC
Description of problem: Document located here:


The abstract states:

This document lays out the different methods through which users can upgrade from Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 6 (Juno) to 7 (Kilo). These methods assume that you will be upgrading to and from an OpenStack deployment installed on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

But the document is clearly for upgrading 7.0 -> 7.1

The abstract needs to be udpated

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 7

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Pull up the Access article and read the abstract

Actual results:

Abstract claims upgrade from 6->7

Expected results:

Abstract states upgrade from 7->7.1

Hi Arthur,

Thank you for raising this bug.

Just to clarify, the intent of this document is indeed to assist users in upgrading from RHEL-OSP 6 to RHEL-OSP 7 rather than from RHEL-OSP 7.0 to RHEL-OSP 7.1.

Are there any particular aspects of the document that you feel do not fit with this scenario, or that may seem misleading to the reader?

Let me know what you think, and we will investigate.

Kind regards,

Thanks Andrew,

I reviewed chapter 3 which appears to be specific to 7->7.1 it looks like chapter 4 applies to 6->7  Can you confirm this?


Comment 4 Andrew Dahms 2015-11-01 23:25:45 UTC
Hi Arthur,

Thank you for your response.

I can confirm that Chapter 3 is also intended as an upgrade path from RHEL-OSP 6 to RHEL-OSP 7. However, I do agree that the note early in this chapter about the possibly need to upgrade from RHEL 7.0 to RHEL 7.1 might be a point of confusion here.

Would it help if we called out the purpose of the scenario a little more clearly at the start of the chapter and talked a little more about the RHEL upgrade as well?

Let me know what you think.

Kind regards,
