Rocky Series Release Notes

Rocky Series Release Notes

18.1.0-20

New Features

  • You can now set the Libvirt CPU model and feature flags from the appropriate entry under the nova_virt_types dictionary variable (normally kvm). nova_cpu_model is a string value that sets the CPU model; this value is ignored if you set any nova_cpu_mode other than custom. nova_cpu_model_extra_flags is a list that allows you to specify extra CPU feature flags not normally passed through with host-model, or the custom CPU model of your choice.

Upgrade Notes

  • If your configuration previously set the libvirt/cpu_model and/or libvirt/cpu_model_extra_flags variables in a nova_nova_conf_overrides dictionary, you should consider moving those to nova_cpu_model and nova_cpu_model_extra_flags in the appropriate entry (normally kvm) in the nova_virt_types dictionary.

Bug Fixes

  • With the release of CentOS 7.6, deployments were breaking and becoming very slow when we restart dbus in order to catch some PolicyKit changes. However, those changes were never actaully used so they were happening for no reason. We no longer make any modifications to the systemd-machined configuration and/or PolicyKit to maintain upstream compatibility.

18.1.0

New Features

  • Horizon has, since OSA’s inception, been deployed with HTTPS access enabled, and has had no way to turn it off. Some use-cases may want to access via HTTP instead, so this patch enables the following.
    • Listen via HTTPS on a load balancer, but via HTTP on the horizon host and have the load balancer forward the correct headers. It will do this by default in the integrated build due to the presence of the load balancer, so the current behaviour is retained.
    • Enable HTTPS on the horizon host without a load balancer. This is the role’s default behaviour which matches what it always has been.
    • Disable HTTPS entirely by setting haproxy_ssl: no (which will also disable https on haproxy. This setting is inherited by the new horizon_enable_ssl variable by default. This is a new option.

Known Issues

  • The original stable/rocky release (18.0.x) contained a reference to a pre-release state of the ceph-ansible role (its 3.2.0beta1 release). That role — and hence, any OpenStack-Ansible stable/rocky release prior to 18.1.0 — should not be used to deploy production Ceph clusters. As of this release, stable/rocky tracks the ceph-ansible role’s stable-3.1 branch.

Upgrade Notes

  • Configurations using the ceph-ansible role (that is, those applying the ceph-install.yml or ceph-rgw-install.yml playbooks) should be very carefully reviewed if you are upgrading from prior stable/rocky releases. Those releases shipped a pre-release version of ceph-ansible that was unintentionally included in ansible-role-requirements.yml.
  • The variables ceilometer_oslomsg_rpc_servers and ceilometer_oslomsg_notify_servers have been removed in favour of using ceilometer_oslomsg_rpc_host_group and ceilometer_oslomsg_notify_host_group instead.

Deprecation Notes

  • The package cache on the repo server has been removed. If caching of packages is desired, it should be setup outside of OpenStack-Ansible and the variable lxc_container_cache_files (for LXC containers) or nspawn_container_cache_files_from_host (for nspawn containers) can be used to copy the appropriate host configuration from the host into the containers on creation. Alternatively, environment variables can be set to use the cache in the host /etc/environment file prior to container creation, or the deployment_environment_variables can have the right variables set to use it. The following variables have been removed.
    • repo_pkg_cache_enabled
    • repo_pkg_cache_port
    • repo_pkg_cache_bind
    • repo_pkg_cache_dirname
    • repo_pkg_cache_dir
    • repo_pkg_cache_owner
    • repo_pkg_cache_group

Bug Fixes

  • The ansible-role-requirements.yml reference to the ceph-ansible role has been fixed to refer to the current HEAD of that role’s stable-3.1 branch. It previously pointed to the pre-release 3.2.0beta1 version.
  • The quota for security group rules was erroneously set to 100 with the aim to have 100 security group rules per security group instead of to 100*#security group rules. This patch fixes this discrepancy.

18.0.0

New Features

  • Support has been added for deploying on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS hosts. The most significant change is a major version increment of LXC from 2.x to 3.x which deprecates some previously used elements of the container configuration file.
  • It is possible to configure Glance to allow cross origin requests by specifying the allowed origin address using the glance_cors_allowed_origin variable. By default, this will be the load balancer address.
  • Adds support for the horizon octavia-ui dashboard. The dashboard will be automatically enabled if any octavia hosts are defined. If both Neutron LBaaSv2 and Octavia are enabled, two Load Balancer panels will be visible in Horizon.
  • Deployers can now set the container_tech to nspawn when deploying OSA within containers. When making the decision to deploy container types the deployer only needs to define the desired container_tech and continue the deployment as normal.
  • The addition of the container_tech option and the inclusion of nspawn support deployers now have the availability to define a desired containerization strategy globally or on specific hosts.
  • When using the nspawn driver containers will connect to the system bridges using a MACVLAN, more on this type of network setup can be seen here.
  • When using the nspawn driver container networking is managed by systemd-networkd both on the host and within the container. This gives us a single interface to manage regardless of distro and allows systemd to efficiently manage the resources.
  • The service setup in keystone for aodh will now be executed through delegation to the aodh_service_setup_host which, by default, is localhost (the deploy host). Deployers can opt to rather change this to the utility container by implementing the following override in user_variables.yml.

    aodh_service_setup_host: "{{ groups['utility_all'][0] }}"
    
  • The service setup in keystone for barbican will now be executed through delegation to the barbican_service_setup_host which, by default, is localhost (the deploy host). Deployers can opt to rather change this to the utility container by implementing the following override in user_variables.yml.

    barbican_service_setup_host: "{{ groups['utility_all'][0] }}"
    
  • When venvwithindex=True and ignorerequirements=True are both specified in rally_git_install_fragments (as was previously the default), this results in rally being installed from PyPI without any constraints being applied. This results in inconsistent builds from day to day, and can cause build failures for stable implementations due to new library releases. Going forward, we remove the rally_git_* overrides in playbooks/defaults/repo_packages/openstack_testing.yml so that the integrated build installs rally from PyPI, but with appropriate constraints applied.
  • When venvwithindex=True and ignorerequirements=True are both specified in tempest_git_install_fragments (as was previously the default), this results in tempest being installed from PyPI without any constraints being applied. This could result in the version of tempest being installed in the integrated build being different than the version being installed in the independent role tests. Going forward, we remove the tempest_git_* overrides in playbooks/defaults/repo_packages/openstack_testing.yml so that the integrated build installs tempest from PyPI, but with appropriate constraints applied.
  • The service setup in keystone for ceilometer will now be executed through delegation to the ceilometer_service_setup_host which, by default, is localhost (the deploy host). Deployers can opt to rather change this to the utility container by implementing the following override in user_variables.yml.

    ceilometer_service_setup_host: "{{ groups['utility_all'][0] }}"
    
  • Octavia requires SSL certificates for communication with the amphora. This adds the automatic creation of self signed certificates for this purpose. It uses different certificate authorities for amphora and control plane thus insuring maximum security.
  • The service setup in keystone for cinder will now be executed through delegation to the cinder_service_setup_host which, by default, is localhost (the deploy host). Deployers can opt to rather change this to the utility container by implementing the following override in user_variables.yml.

    cinder_service_setup_host: "{{ groups['utility_all'][0] }}"
    
  • If defined in applicable host or group vars the variable container_extra_networks will be merged with the existing container_networks from the dynamic inventory. This allows a deployer to specify special interfaces which may be unique to an indivdual container. An example use for this feature would be applying known fixed IP addresses to public interfaces on BIND servers for designate.
  • The option repo_venv_default_pip_packages has been added which will allow deployers to insert any packages into a service venv as needed. The option expects a list of strings which are valid python package names as found on PYPI.
  • The service setup in keystone for designate will now be executed through delegation to the designate_service_setup_host which, by default, is localhost (the deploy host). Deployers can opt to rather change this to the utility container by implementing the following override in user_variables.yml.

    designate_service_setup_host: "{{ groups['utility_all'][0] }}"
    
  • The os_horizon role now supports distribution of user custom themes. Deployers can use the new key theme_src_archive of horizon_custom_themes dictionary to provide absolute path to the archived theme. Only .tar.gz, .tgz, .zip, .tar.bz, .tar.bz2, .tbz, .tbz2 archives are supported. Structure inside archive should be as a standard theme, without any leading folders.
  • The option rabbitmq_erlang_version_spec has been added allowing deployers to set the version of erlang used on a given installation.
  • Octavia is creating vms, securitygroups, and other things in its project. In most cases the default quotas are not big enough. This will adjust them to (configurable) reasonable values.
  • The service setup in keystone for glance will now be executed through delegation to the glance_service_setup_host which, by default, is localhost (the deploy host). Deployers can opt to rather change this to the utility container by implementing the following override in user_variables.yml.

    glance_service_setup_host: "{{ groups['utility_all'][0] }}"
    
  • The service setup in keystone for gnocchi will now be executed through delegation to the gnocchi_service_setup_host which, by default, is localhost (the deploy host). Deployers can opt to rather change this to the utility container by implementing the following override in user_variables.yml.

    gnocchi_service_setup_host: "{{ groups['utility_all'][0] }}"
    
  • The service setup in keystone for heat will now be executed through delegation to the heat_service_setup_host which, by default, is localhost (the deploy host). Deployers can opt to rather change this to the utility container by implementing the following override in user_variables.yml.

    heat_service_setup_host: "{{ groups['utility_all'][0] }}"
    
  • The service setup in keystone for horizon will now be executed through delegation to the horizon_service_setup_host which, by default, is localhost (the deploy host). Deployers can opt to rather change this to the utility container by implementing the following override in user_variables.yml.

    horizon_service_setup_host: "{{ groups['utility_all'][0] }}"
    
  • The service setup in keystone for ironic will now be executed through delegation to the ironic_service_setup_host which, by default, is localhost (the deploy host). Deployers can opt to rather change this to the utility container by implementing the following override in user_variables.yml.

    ironic_service_setup_host: "{{ groups['utility_all'][0] }}"

    keystone_service_setup_host: "{{ groups['utility_all'][0] }}"
    
  • The service setup in keystone for magnum will now be executed through delegation to the magnum_service_setup_host which, by default, is localhost (the deploy host). Deployers can opt to rather change this to the utility container by implementing the following override in user_variables.yml.

    magnum_service_setup_host: "{{ groups['utility_all'][0] }}"
    
  • Instead of downloading images to the magnum API servers, the images will now download to the magnum_service_setup_host to the folder set in magnum_image_path owned by magnum_image_path_owner.
  • The service setup in keystone for neutron will now be executed through delegation to the neutron_service_setup_host which, by default, is localhost (the deploy host). Deployers can opt to rather change this to the utility container by implementing the following override in user_variables.yml.

    octavia_service_setup_host: "{{ groups['utility_all'][0] }}"
    
  • Deployers can now set the install_method to either source (default) or distro to choose the method for installing OpenStack services on the hosts. This only applies to new deployments. Existing deployments which are source based, cannot be converted to the new distro method. For more information, please refer to the Deployment Guide.
  • The role now supports using the distribution packages for the OpenStack services instead of the pip ones. This feature is disabled by default and can be enabled by simply setting the heat_install_method variable to distro.

  • The options lxc_host_machine_qgroup_space_limit and lxc_host_machine_qgroup_compression_limit have been added allowing a deployer to set qgroup limits as they see fit. The default value for these options is “none” which is effectively unlimited. These options accept any nominal size value followed by the single letter type, example 64G. These options are only effective when the option lxc_host_machine_quota_disabled is set to false.
  • The service setup in keystone for swift will now be executed through delegation to the swift_service_setup_host which, by default, is localhost (the deploy host). Deployers can opt to rather change this to the utility container by implementing the following override in user_variables.yml.

Known Issues

  • All OSA releases earlier than 17.0.5, 16.0.4, and 15.1.22 will fail to build the rally venv due to the release of the new cmd2-0.9.0 python library. Deployers are encouraged to update to the latest OSA release which pins to an appropriate version which is compatible with python2.
  • With the release of CentOS 7.5, all pike releases are broken due to a mismatch in version between the libvirt-python library specified by the OpenStack community, and the version provided in CentOS 7.5. As such OSA is unable build the appropriate python library for libvirt. The only recourse for this is to upgrade the environment to the latest queens release.

Upgrade Notes

  • The supported upgrade path from Xenial to Bionic is via re-installation of the host OS across all nodes and redeployment of the required services. The Rocky branch of OSA is intended as the transition point for such upgrades from Xenial to Bionic. At this time there is no support for in-place operating system upgrades (typically via do-release-upgrade).
  • Users should purge the ‘ntp’ package from their hosts if ceph-ansible is enabled. ceph-ansible previously was configured to install ntp by default which conflicts with the OSA ansible-hardening role chrony service.
  • The variable cinder_iscsi_helper has been replaced by the new variable which is cinder_target_helper due to the fact that iscsi_helper has been deprecated in Cinder.
  • The key is_ssh_address has been removed from the openstack_user_config.yml and the dynamic inventory. This key was responsible mapping an address to the container which was used for SSH connectivity. Because we’ve created the SSH connectivity plugin, which allows us the ability to connect to remote containers without SSH, this option is no longer useful. To keep the openstack_user_config.yml clean deployers can remove the option however moving forward it no longer has any effect.
  • The distribution package lookup and data output has been removed from the py_pkgs lookup so that the repo-build use of py_pkgs has reduced output and the lookup is purpose specific for python packages only.
  • The ping check that happens inside keepalived to make sure that the server that runs it can reach 193.0.14.129 has been removed by default. The functionality can continue to be used if you define the keepalived_ping_address in your user_variables.yml file to 193.0.14.129 or any IP of your choice.
  • The glance v1 API is now removed upstream and the deployment code is now removed from this glance ansible role. The variable glance_enable_v1_api is removed.

  • The get_gested filter has been removed, as it is not used by any roles/plays.
  • The variable glance_requires_pip_packages is no longer required and has therefore been removed.
  • The variable gnocchi_requires_pip_packages is no longer required and has therefore been removed.

  • The variable nova_requires_pip_packages is no longer required and has therefore been removed.
  • The variable octavia_requires_pip_packages is no longer required and has therefore been removed.
  • The variable octavia_image_downloader has been removed. The image download now uses the same host designated by the octavia_service_setup_host for the image download.
  • The variable octavia_ansible_endpoint_type has been removed. The endpoint used for ansible tasks has been hard set to the ‘admin’ endpoint as is commonly used across all OSA roles.
  • The rabbitmq server parameters have been replaced by corresponding oslo.messaging RPC and Notify parameters in order to abstract the messaging service from the actual backend server deployment. - trove_oslomsg_rpc_servers replaces trove_rabbitmq_servers - trove_oslomsg_rpc_port replaces trove_rabbitmq_port - trove_oslomsg_rpc_use_ssl replaces trove_rabbitmq_use_ssl - trove_oslomsg_rpc_userid replaces trove_rabbitmq_userid - trove_oslomsg_rpc_vhost replaces trove_rabbitmq_vhost - added trove_oslomsg_notify_servers - added trove_oslomsg_notify_port - added trove_oslomsg_notify_use_ssl - added trove_oslomsg_notify_userid - added trove_oslomsg_notify_vhost - added trove_oslomsg_notify_password

  • The repo server’s reverse proxy for pypi has now been removed, leaving only the pypiserver to serve packages already on the repo server. The attempt to reverse proxy upstream pypi turned out to be very unstable with increased complexity for deployers using proxies or offline installs. With this, the variables repo_nginx_pypi_upstream and repo_nginx_proxy_cache_path have also been removed.
  • The variable repo_requires_pip_packages is no longer required and has therefore been removed.
  • With the implementation of systemd-journal-remote the rsyslog_client role is no longer run by default. To enable the legacy functionality, the variable rsyslog_client_enabled and rsyslog_server_enabled can be set to true.
  • The variable sahara_requires_pip_packages is no longer required and has therefore been removed.
  • The variable swift_requires_pip_packages is no longer required and has therefore been removed.
  • The variable tempest_requires_pip_packages is no longer required and has therefore been removed.
  • The variable tempest_image_downloader has been removed. The image download now uses the same host designated by the tempest_service_setup_host for the image download.
  • The variable trove_requires_pip_packages is no longer required and has therefore been removed.

Security Issues

  • It is recommended that the certificate generation is always reviewed by security professionals since algorithms and key-lengths considered secure change all the time.
  • Avoid setting the quotas too high for your cloud since this can impact the performance of other servcies and lead to a potential Denial-of-Service attack if Loadbalancer quotas are not set properly or RBAC is not properly set up.

Bug Fixes

  • Newer releases of CentOS ship a version of libnss that depends on the existance of /dev/random and /dev/urandom in the operating system in order to run. This causes a problem during the cache preparation process which runs inside chroot that does not contain this, resulting in errors with the following message.

    error: Failed to initialize NSS library
    

    This has been resolved by introducing a /dev/random and /dev/urandom inside the chroot-ed environment.

  • ceph-ansible is no longer configured to install ntp by default, which creates a conflict with OSA’s ansible-hardening role that is used to implement ntp using ‘chrony’.
  • In order to prevent further issues with a libvirt and python-libvirt version mismatch, KVM-based compute nodes will now use the distribution package python library for libvirt. This should resolve the issue seen with pike builds on CentOS 7.5.
  • The conditional that determines whether the sso_callback_template.html file is deployed for federated deployments has been fixed.

Other Notes

  • When running keystone with apache(httpd) all apache logs will be stored in the standard apache log directory which is controlled by the distro specific variable keystone_apache_default_log_folder.
  • When running aodh with apache(httpd) all apache logs will be stored in the standard apache log directory which is controlled by the distro specific variable aodh_apache_default_log_folder.
  • The max_fail_percentage playbook option has been used with the default playbooks since the first release of the playbooks back in Icehouse. While the intention was to allow large-scale deployments to succeed in cases where a single node fails due to transient issues, this option has produced more problems that it solves. If a failure occurs that is transient in nature but is under the set failure percentage the playbook will report a success, which can cause silent failures depending on where the failure happened. If a deployer finds themselves in this situation the problems are are then compounded because the tools will report there are no known issues. To ensure deployers have the best deployment experience and the most accurate information a change has been made to remove the max_fail_percentage option from all of the default playbooks. The removal of this option has the side effect of requiring the deploy to skip specific hosts should one need to be omitted from a run, but has the benefit of eliminating silent, hard to track down, failures. To skip a failing host for a given playbook run use the –limit ‘!$HOSTNAME’ CLI switch for the specific run. Once the issues have been resolved for the failing host rerun the specific playbook without the –limit option to ensure everything is in sync.
