OpenStack Ocata B2 for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Hi All,

The Ubuntu OpenStack team is pleased to announce the general availability of the OpenStack Ocata B2 milestone in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS via the Ubuntu Cloud Archive.

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

You can enable the Ubuntu Cloud Archive pocket for OpenStack Ocata on Ubuntu 16.04 installations by running the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository cloud-archive:ocata

sudo apt update

The Ubuntu Cloud Archive for Ocata includes updates for:

aodh (commit 5363ff85), barbican, ceilometer (commit aa3f491bb), cinder, congress, designate, designate-dashboard, glance, heat, horizon (commit 158a4c1a), keystone, libvirt (2.5.0), manila, mistral, networking-ovn, neutron, neutron-fwaas, neutron-lbaas, neutron-vpnaas (commit 47c217e4), nova, openstack-trove, panko (1.0.0), qemu (2.6.1), sahara, senlin, swift (2.12.0), watcher (0.33.0), and zaqar.

API’s now running under apache2 with mod_wsgi

In this milestone we’ve updated the following APIs to run under apache2 with mod_wsgi: aodh-api, barbican-api, ceilometer-api, cinder-api, and nova-placement-api.

Please keep this in mind as the packages will no longer install systemd unit files for these services, and will instead install apache2 with corresponding apache2 sites.

libvirt 2.5.0 changes

In this release of libvirt, the libvirt-bin systemd service has been renamed to libvirtd, and the unix_sock_group has changed from libvirtd to libvirt.

Branch Package Builds

If you would like to try out the latest updates to branches, we are delivering continuously integrated packages on each upstream commit via the following PPA’s:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openstack-ubuntu-testing/liberty

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openstack-ubuntu-testing/mitaka

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openstack-ubuntu-testing/newton

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openstack-ubuntu-testing/ocata

Reporting bugs

If you have any issues please report bugs using the ‘ubuntu-bug’ tool to ensure that bugs get logged in the right place in Launchpad:

 sudo ubuntu-bug nova-conductor

Thanks to all who have contributed thus far to OpenStack Ocata, both upstream and downstream.  And special thanks to the puppet modules team for their continued early testing of Ocata.

Have fun!
