Wiki pages




  • Puppet work is missing, Mike has not written any code at all.
  • Two puppet options
    • Setting up an exact duplicate tampa cluster, (not very hard)
    • Adopting new versions of openstack, new technologies (new dns), ip6, neutron (what's neutron?)
    • Coren prefers to move to new technology, upgrading later is going to be very disruptive (taking labs down again).
    • Andrew suggests that maybe we missed the opportunity to upgrade to new tech given the situation
  • Ryan was blocked by Mike, he is on contract for 10 hours per week, we should use his time wisely.
  • Faidon might be able to help next week
  • OpenStackManager needs to be aware of both data centers -- this will support our volunteers migrating their own projects.
    • Much of this work is done and tested, but when the OpenStack cluster in eqiad comes up there will be another round of bugs

to shake out.

  • Network setup:
    • labsnet1001 will be the neutron host, it has 4 bonded ports


* Postpone DNS/"designate", that can be done easily later. 
* We will upgrade to new tech (Openstack Havana, Neutron) in eqiad, plan B is to use existing Tampa configuration.
