Description

Motivation

In openQA job group 'Migration: Regression' we are still using PowerKVM and from SLE-15-SP2 we stopped supporting it.
We need to move to PowerVM the following existing scenarios:

  • offline_sles15sp2_ltss_pscc_lp-basesys-srv-desk-dev-contm-lgm-py2-tsm-wsm-pcm_all_full
  • offline_sles15sp3_pscc_lp-basesys-srv-desk-dev-contm-lgm-py2-tsm-wsm-pcm_all_full
  • online_sles15sp2_ltss_pscc_lp-basesys-srv-desk-dev-contm-lgm-py2-tsm-wsm-pcm_all_full
  • online_sles15sp3_pscc_lp-basesys-srv-desk-dev-contm-lgm-py2-tsm-wsm-pcm_all_full

Additionally we need to create two additional ones for sles15sp4:

  • offline_sles15sp4_pscc_lp-basesys-srv-desk-dev-contm-lgm-py2-tsm-wsm-pcm_all_full
  • online_sles15sp4_pscc_lp-basesys-srv-desk-dev-contm-lgm-py2-tsm-wsm-pcm_all_full

Acceptance criteria

AC1: Regression test for ppc64le are running virtualization PowerVM for >=sles15-sp2
AC2: Preparation job (then ones ending in *_pre) are executed using AutoYaST.

Additional info

Regression testing is running each job with all product modules, but you can find equivalent jobs in Migration job group that would differ only on that, that they are configured with a specific combination of the product modules. You can borrow the configuration from them.
See current PowerVM jobs for Migration: https://openqa.suse.de/tests/overview?arch=&flavor=&machine=ppc64le-hmc-single-disk&test=&modules=&module_re=&distri=sle&version=15-SP5&build=29.1&groupid=265#

Need update powerVM yaml file.
Add some regression test modules.

#7 Updated by coolgw about 2 months ago

We have not do autoyast install + migration on powerVM before, also for offline case (patch_sle should put in 1st job, otherwise migration task maybe failed), i suppose we need SPIKE task to investigate possibility of basic scenario.

NOTES:following link exist autoyast install+upgrade(x86)

could you please describe what is the investigation to be needed?
For what I can see there are similar scenarios in "Migration" and "Migration: Regression", so in this ticket for PowerVM we are going to to create an AutoYaST profile to avoid to do a interactive installation in those _pre test suites. It shouldn't change the existing flow, just convert to AutoYaST in PowerVM. For example this test suite is running autoyast in YaST group: https://openqa.suse.de/tests/9679955 so we clone the existing interactive installation and and work with the profile, not much to figure out IMO.

I have no idea we already have autoyast example in powerVM, that's seems good start point for this ticket.
