Chapter 6. Performing post-update tasks

After a minor Red Hat OpenStack version update, you must perform post-update related tasks to ensure that your environment is fully supported and ready for future operations.

6.1. Considerations for Octavia deployments

If your deployment uses Octavia services, you must update the running load balancing amphora instance with a new image.

To update an amphora image, you must fail over the load balancer and then wait for the load balancer to regain an active state. When the load balancer is active again, it runs the new image.

For more information, see Updating running Load-balancing service instances in the Using Octavia for Load Balancing-as-a-Service guide.
