Current Series Release Notes

16.0.0.0rc1-155

New Features

  • OpenStack-Ansible now supports the openSUSE Leap 42.X distributions mainly targeting the latest 42.3 release.
  • The Ceph stable release used by openstack-ansible and its ceph-ansible integration has been changed to the recent Ceph LTS Luminous release.
  • New hypervisor groups have been added allowing deployers to better define their compute workloads. While the generic “compute_hosts” group will still work explicit definitions for compute hosts can now be defined using the ironic-compute_hosts, kvm-compute_hosts, lxd-compute_hosts, qemu-compute_hosts, and powervm-compute_hosts groups accordingly

Known Issues

  • Ceph storage backend is known not to work on openSUSE Leap 42.X yet. This is due to missing openSUSE support in the upstream Ceph Ansible playbooks.

Upgrade Notes

  • The ceph-ansible integration has been updated to support the ceph-ansible v3.0 series tags. The new v3.0 series brings a significant refactoring of the ceph-ansible roles and vars, so it is strongly recommended to consult the upstream ceph-ansible documentation to perform any required vars migrations before you upgrade.
  • The ceph-ansible common roles are no longer namespaced with a galaxy-style ‘.’ (ie. ceph.ceph-common is now cloned as ceph-common), due to a change in the way upstream meta dependencies are handled in the ceph roles. The roles will be cloned according to the new naming, and an upgrade playbook ceph-galaxy-removal.yml has been added to clean up the stale galaxy-named roles.
  • The Ceph stable release used by openstack-ansible and its ceph-ansible integration has been changed to the recent Ceph LTS Luminous release.

Critical Issues

  • The ceph-ansible integration has been updated to support the ceph-ansible v3.0 series tags. The new v3.0 series brings a significant refactoring of the ceph-ansible roles and vars, so it is strongly recommended to consult the upstream ceph-ansible documentation to perform any required vars migrations before you upgrade.

Other Notes

  • openSUSE Leap 42.X support is still work in progress and not fully tested besides basic coverange in the OpenStack CI and individual manual testing. Even though backporting fixes to the Pike release will be done on best effort basis, it’s advised to use the master branch when working on openSUSE hosts.
