Roll back the OpenContrail nodes

Roll back the OpenContrail nodesΒΆ

You can roll back the OpenContrail nodes and the OpenContrail packages on the compute nodes if the upgrade fails. You can find a full log of the specific upgrade build using Build History > Console Output > Full Log in Jenkins UI.

To roll back the OpenContrail nodes:

  1. Log in to the Salt Master node.

  2. Revert the changes made in Prepare the cluster model section.

  3. If you are rolling back only the compute nodes while having the OpenContrail controller nodes already upgraded to v4.x, add the system.opencontrail.compute.upgrade class to cluster/<name>/opencontrail/compute.yml.

  4. Log in to the Jenkins web UI.

  5. Open the Deploy - upgrade Opencontrail to 4.x pipeline.

  6. Specify the following parameters as required:

    Parameter

    Description and values

    SALT_MASTER_CREDENTIALS

    The Salt Master credentials to use for connection, defaults to salt.

    SALT_MASTER_URL

    The Salt Master node host URL with the salt-api port, defaults to the jenkins_salt_api_url parameter. For example, http://172.18.170.27:6969.

    COMPUTE_TARGET_SERVERS

    Add the same string that you used during the upgrade that failed.

    COMPUTE_TARGET_SUBSET_LIVE

    Add the same string that you used during the upgrade that failed.

    STAGE_CONTROLLERS_ROLLBACK

    Select this check box to roll back the OpenContrail controller nodes.

    STAGE_COMPUTES_ROLLBACK

    Select this check box to roll back the compute nodes.

  7. Click Deploy. For details on how to monitor the deployment process, see: MCP Deployment Guide: View the deployment details.

The Deploy - upgrade Opencontrail to 4.x pipeline rollback stages are as follows:

  1. If STAGE_CONTROLLERS_ROLLBACK is selected, the pipeline stops the OpenContrail containers with the ntw and nal nodes and starts the OpenContrail services. The process requires manual confirmations that are based on the output of the nodetool status and contrail-status commands.

  2. If STAGE_COMPUTES_ROLLBACK is selected, the pipeline downgrades the OpenContrail packages on the compute nodes in two iterations:

    1. Downgrade the sample compute nodes defined by COMPUTE_TARGET_SUBSET_LIVE.

    2. After a manual confirmation, downgrade all compute nodes defined by COMPUTE_TARGET_SERVERS.
