Epic Name: Automate testing for all supported puppet-agent platforms
Epic Status: Done


Currently, A&P QA runs a number of puppet-agent builds and tests manually. We should automate the puppet-agent pipeline for these eccentric platforms, so-called because they are not managed by VMPooler and are not included in automated testing. These platforms are, in no particular order:

  • Solaris-SPARC
  • CiscoXR
  • HuaweiOS
  • RHEL-S390X
  • SLES-S390X

Ping Kenn Hussey and Stan Duffy. I marked QA-2492 and QA-2493 as related tickets/epics to this one. It does seem like they could be rolled into this epic. Thoughts/opinions/preferences?

Comment by Kenn Hussey [ 2016/10/31 ]

Kurt Wall thanks. I'd rather keep those epics separate (but linked), if that's OK. /cc Stan Duffy

Geoff Nichols this is the epic I mentioned in our meeting.

And we've been using this document to track impediments and progress.

Comment by Kenn Hussey [ 2016/11/10 ]

Kurt Wall do we have a target puppet-agent release by when we plan to complete this work?

Comment by Kurt Wall [ 2016/11/10 ]

Kenn Hussey Haven't given it a thought. It seems like it will take about 6 weeks, on top of the time already spent, to put it all together.

Comment by Kurt Wall [ 2016/11/10 ]

Kenn Hussey I put a stake in the ground with a Puppet 2.0.0 fix version.

Dropped S390 from the list. No revenue for it, so halting testing.
