OpenStack Troubleshooting ToolBox - Climbing the version upgrade peak

In this workshop, we will perform an OpenStack upgrade from Queens to Rocky. This will include the keystone, nova, neutron, and glance services. We will cover database schema, service and configuration file updates. We will also examine relevant logs files and highlight entries that are related to the upgrade process. In addition, we will upgrade a compute node with a running instance. We will inspect the nova-compute service and the running instance and emphasize relevant data that pertains to the upgrade. Also, we will examine the status of the instance before, during and after the upgrade. The attendees will each be given their own instance and will work through the OpenStack version upgrade. They will gain an understanding of how the upgrade works and the steps involved in a successful upgrade. 

All attendees should bring a laptop to participate in this workshop.

What can I expect to learn?

This session will allow attendees to have a hands-on session doing an OpenStack version upgrade. This is an important task in the cloud lifecycle. This goal of the session is to allow attendees first hand experience performing the upgrade steps while also highlighting potential areas of difficulty.
