[OpenStack-DefCore] Ubuntu 15.10 deprecated, not available anymore on DreamHost [interop]

0 votes

Hello folks,

Canonical asked DreamHost not to have Ubuntu 15.10 images available to
public since that version of the distribution is EOL.

For the interop challenge, that represents an issue: do other public
clouds have the same concern? If this is limited to DreamHost, how would
you suggest to better address it?

Thanks,
stef

Stefano,

Hmm, which workload does this concern pertain to? Is the concern here the LAMP workload, the example config for which seems to show using a 15.04 image in the README.md file[1]? If so: I’d read that just as an example config. The image is parameterized, so you can specify what image you want. I ran the workload using a 14.04 LTS guest and it worked fine (the OSIC sample config[2] in vars/ also appears to show a 14.04 LTS image).

At Your Service,

We have been using ubuntu image 14.04, 15.04 and 15.10 for this effort. 16.xx ubuntu image does not have python installed which is required by ansible. Other than that, I think we should be able to use the 16.xx image. I can try it when I get back from the travel. For the summit, I think we should stick with the ones we have tested.

Thanks.

well, never mind... Since Ubuntu 16.04 still doesn't work well with
Ansible, I reverted the DreamHost env file to Ubuntu 14.04 because using
16.04 would require to change the roles... 14.04 will do.

I rebased and pushed a new version to
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/374394/

Which leads to another question: until last week DreamHost didn't use
'ubuntu' as default username for the images and therefore I made the
ssh-user a parameter for the yml environment. Nowadays DreamHost uses
the default username for Ubuntu images, 'ubuntu' so strictly speaking my
patch is not needed.

Please leave a comment on the review and I'll revert the playbook to
where it was.

thanks,
stef

Interim Ubuntu releases only have a 9 month support window so not surprising 15.x are eol.  It is why the vast majority of users opt for the the LTS releases which come every 2 years in April and have support window of 5 years. As far as possible testing should be using 14.04 or 16.04 images.

I am confused about the statement that 16.04 doesn't have python as it should have python3 included. I'll check for certain when not on a mobile device.

Correct, I should have been more precise: Ubuntu 16.04 comes with only
python3 by default, but it completely misses python2. This has important
implications for Ansible: one needs to install python2 on 16.04 and skip
gathering facts about the VM (among other things)... It's a lot messier
to use ansible on 16.04 than it should be.
