Perform the post-update activitiesΒΆ

The post-update activities include the post-update testing cycle and cleanup.

To finalize the update:

  1. Perform the full verification cycle of your MCP OpenStack deployment.

  2. Verify that the following variables are set in the classes/cluster/<cluster_name>/infra/init.yml file:

        openstack_upgrade_enabled: false
  3. Refresh pillars:

    salt '*' saltutil.refresh_pillar
  4. Remove the test workloads/monitoring.

  5. Remove the update leftovers that were created by applying the <app> state:

    1. Log in to the Salt Master node.

    2. Get the list of all updatable OpenStack components. For example:

      salt-call config.get orchestration:upgrade:applications --out=json

      Example of system response:

          "<model_of_salt_master_name>": {
              "nova": {
                  "priority": 1100
              "heat": {
                  "priority": 1250
              "keystone": {
                  "priority": 1000
              "horizon": {
                  "priority": 1800
              "cinder": {
                  "priority": 1200
              "glance": {
                  "priority": 1050
              "neutron": {
                  "priority": 1150
              "designate": {
                  "priority": 1300
    3. Range the components from the output by priority. For example:

    4. Get the list of all target nodes:

      salt-key | grep $cluster_domain | \
      grep -v $salt_master_hostname | tr '\n' ' '

      The cluster_domain variable stands for the name of the domain used as part of the cluster FQDN. For details, see MCP Deployment guide: General deployment parameters: Basic deployment parameters.

      The salt_master_hostname variable stands for the hostname of the Salt Master node and is cfg01 by default. For details, see MCP Deployment guide: Infrastructure related parameters: Salt Master.

    5. For each target node, get the list of installed applications:

      salt <node_name> pillar.items __reclass__:applications --out=json
    6. Match the lists of the updatable OpenStack components with the lists of installed applications for each target node.

    7. Apply the following states to each target node for each installed application in the strict order of priority:

      salt <node_name> state.apply <component_name>

      For example, for Nova installed on the cmp01 compute node, run:

      salt cmp01 state.apply


    On the clouds of medium and large sizes, you may want to automate this step. Use the following script as an example of possible automatization.

    #List of formulas that implements upgrade API sorted by priority
    all_formulas=$(salt-call config.get orchestration:upgrade:applications --out=json | \
    jq '.[] | . as $in | keys_unsorted | map ({"key": ., "priority": $in[.].priority}) | sort_by(.priority) | map(.key | [(.)]) | add' | \
    sed -e 's/"//g' -e 's/,//g' -e 's/\[//g' -e 's/\]//g')
    #List of nodes in cloud
    list_nodes=`salt -C 'I@__reclass__:applications' --out=text | cut -d: -f1 | tr '\n' ' '`
    for node in $list_nodes; do
      #List of applications on the given node
      node_applications=$(salt $node pillar.items __reclass__:applications --out=json | \
      jq 'values |.[] | values |.[] | .[]' | tr -d '"' | tr '\n' ' ')
      for component in $all_formulas ; do
        if [[ " ${node_applications[*]} " == *"$component"* ]]; then
          salt $node state.apply $
