Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Deprecated Functionality
Doc Text:
The ability to leave swap enabled has been removed and the openshift_disable_swap variable is deprecated. This variable was never publicly documented and was only used internally. Documentation has stated that system swap should be disabled since 3.4 and we will no longer make sure it is disabled after 3.9.

Comment 4 Russell Teague 2018-11-05 19:14:55 UTC
We will stop disabling swap on every upgrade because we've required swap to be disabled since 3.4.  This PR is for removing the optional variable which was never publicly documented.

release-3.11: https://github.com/openshift/openshift-ansible/pull/10604

Comment 5 Russell Teague 2018-11-07 13:15:16 UTC
Fixed in openshift-ansible-3.11.40-1

Comment 6 Johnny Liu 2018-11-09 11:06:25 UTC
According to comment 2, we decide to leave the disable task out of 3.11 upgrade, but in 3.10 fresh install.

I tried a 3.10 fresh install with openshift-ansible-3.10.71-1.git.0.3e9431a.el7.noarch, even I set "openshift_disable_swap=false" in inventory file, "Disable swap" task is still called, the PR is working well as expected.

I also tried a 3.11 fresh install with openshift-ansible-3.11.41-1.git.0.f711b2d.el7.noarch, set "openshift_disable_swap=false" in inventory file, "Disable swap" task is still called, the PR is working well.
