Description Eduard Barrera 2018-01-15 09:32:18 UTC
Description of problem:

Before upgrading we went thru the upgrade documentation[1]. There it says that NovaComputeExtraConfig is deprecated in favor of ComputeExtraConfig. There is another place in the decumentation[2] says that we should use NovaComputeExtraConfig

After upgrading to OSP12 a configuration change was performed with ComputeExtraConfig but configuration was not applied. we changed to NovaComputeExtraConfig and it did work as expected. This is the example template we applied and did not work:


  TimeZone: 'Europe/Zurich'

    TimeZone: 'Europe/Zurich'

    nova::compute::resize_confirm_window: 1
    nova::compute::libvirt::libvirt_cpu_mode: 'custom'
    nova::compute::libvirt::libvirt_cpu_model: 'IvyBridge'
      '950 NRPE':
          - 5666

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Apply the specified template after upgrading to 12

Actual results:
ComputeExtraConfig not applied

Expected results:
ComputeExtraConfig applied, documentation[1] says that it substitutes NovaComputeExtraConfig

there is a small mistake in the example template with the timezone

Comment 2 Dan Macpherson 2018-02-02 05:10:32 UTC
Not sure what's happening here. The new param should definitely be ComputeExtraConfig (and the NovaComputeExtraConfig param in the second link is deprecated).

NEEDINFO'ing Emilien - Have you had any reports yet of the ComputeExtraConfig hieradata hook not working?

Comment 3 Emilien Macchi 2018-02-05 18:30:01 UTC
As you can see here:

NovaComputeExtraConfig and ComputeExtraConfig are supposed to be merged.

One thing, Eduard can you please confirm that your compute role is named "Compute"?

Note that ControllerExtraConfig is tested in CI so I see no reason why ComputeExtraConfig wouldn't work.
Please provide your templates etc, so we can try to reproduce.

Comment 14 Dan Macpherson 2018-05-23 06:37:19 UTC

Do you know what the status of this is? It looks like its been patched as per comment #11, but just want to check to make sure.

Comment 15 Emilien Macchi 2018-05-23 13:21:08 UTC
Backport in progress
