Several notable changes were made to the Red Hat OpenStack Platform documentation set for this release. The following list outlines and explains these changes.
- Configuration Reference and Command-Line Interface Reference
The Configuration Reference and Command-Line Interface Reference documents are not available with the general availability of Red Hat OpenStack Platform 12.
Both documents have a dependency on source content generated by openstack.org
. In the Pike release, the format and location of this content changed. As a result, the scope of the work required extended beyond the Red Hat OpenStack Platform 12 GA schedule. The documents will be compiled and published as an asynchronous release.
- Manual Installation Procedures
The Manual Installation Procedures document has been removed from the documentation set starting from Red Hat OpenStack Platform 12.
Red Hat supports installation processes performed only using the Red Hat OpenStack Platform director and the official documentation steps.
- Manual Upgrades
Red Hat OpenStack Platform 12 does not support manual upgrade steps performed without director, and, as a result, no documentation is available for this scenario. For supported upgrade scenarios, using Red Hat OpenStack Platform director, see Upgrading Red Hat OpenStack Platform
- OpenStack Benchmarking Service Guide
The OpenStack Benchmarking Service
document was outdated and contained incorrect information. It has been removed from the documentation set across all versions. The following Bugzilla ticket requests a full review of the document: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1459469
- Red Hat Ceph Storage for the Overcloud
- RPM-Based Overcloud Installation
RPM packages for Red Hat OpenStack Platform 12 are still shipped alongside container images; however, the official installer provided by Red Hat, Red Hat OpenStack Platform director, does not support deployments of non-containerized (RPM-based) Red Hat OpenStack Platform 12. As a result, instructions for deploying an RPM-based overcloud are not provided in the documentation. For supported deployment scenarios, see Director Installation and Usage
Although installation procedures are not provided or supported for RPM-based deployments, environments resulting from manual deployment are still supported if they comply with Red Hat support policy: https://access.redhat.com/articles/2477851
- VMware Integration Guide
The VMware Integration Guide has been removed from the documentation set across all versions. The integration described in the document is no longer supported.
