[RFE] Upgrades shall support consuming local mirrors
Last modified: 2017-08-17 08:35:31 EDT
In the case of telcos, where there is a tight maintenance window and network constraints, it is not possible to perform upgrades using the CDN.
The approach that we are following, is to create local mirrors, and point the undercloud/overcloud to use those.
We are using the following article as a base: https://access.redhat.com/articles/2377701
However, this is still a manual process. Repo creation, undercloud configuration to point to local mirror, still needs to be done manually. Also we miss to document the UpgradeInitCommand, needed to go through major upgrades.
The deploy/upgrade process shall support enabling local mirrors, and automate it as much as possible.
