Description Clayton Coleman 2019-09-18 02:36:02 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1753070 +++

A 4.1 cluster test suite needs to be able to run against a 4.2 control plane with 4.1 nodes in a way that is reproducible for automation. For now, we'll create a "half" payload for 4.2 that excludes machine-config and then use the 4.1 suite. The test suite needs to ignore two specific tests that verify that every operator in the cluster has the same version (machine-config will be 4.1) and one that checks the images are all in the current payload.  That will enable the skew tests to use 4.1.

Fixing in 4.2 and then backporting to 4.1. It must be in 4.1 so we can run tests against master.

Comment 2 Clayton Coleman 2019-09-22 22:55:56 UTC
During investigation we identified a number of alerts that fire when a cluster is skewed that must also be skipped.


Comment 3 Anping Li 2019-09-24 11:09:16 UTC
@Jessica, QE don't know how to verify this bugs. Could you help us verify it?

Comment 4 Clayton Coleman 2019-09-25 15:49:41 UTC
Verification will have to be done by Jessica since she is familiar with the test infrastructure.

Comment 7 Clayton Coleman 2019-09-26 19:11:09 UTC
We had another fix, Jessica has to reverify.
