Bring OSP Environment Back to Health

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • Ran incorrect (similarly named) script on pod while trying to perform an overcloud upgrade. The contents of the script were:

# Was getting JSON errors on overcloud deploy command
# so RedHat support suggested simplifying.

. ~/stackrc

  • Obvious issues here are that the templates are excluded, and the compute count is lower than what exists. The deployment of course failed.

  • Overcloud commands now hang.

  • In parallel, the PCS cluster on the controllers is also broken (every service is stopped and in unmanaged state).
