coordination #17208

Updated by okurz almost 5 years ago

## Motivation

Thin Provisioning is an imporant feature and
as such it makes sense to have at least a basic test - meaning
deployment of the system, which will implicitly test the subsystem itself.
Yast team has fixed a bug in Yast in February about Thin Provisioned LVM
installation. It showed up that there is no test coverage for this in
OpenQA.

## Acceptance criteria
* **AC1:** An openQA test scenario conducting installation on thin-LVM exists and is scheduled on SLE15, openSUSE Tumbleweed and openSUSE Leap 15.0
* **AC2:** Also on SLE12SP4 unless there is a clear message that thin-LVM is not supported on SLE12, see [bsc#1027586](https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1027586)

## Tasks
* Understand thin provisioning, e.g. watch https://youtu.be/E4H6Ar7XIjU or read https://www.theurbanpenguin.com/thin-provisioning-lvm2/
* Test thin-LVM installation manually on TW or SLE15
* Resurrect https://github.com/os-autoinst/os-autoinst-distri-opensuse/pull/2489 and adapt for storage-ng
* Get involved in https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1027586 to find out how tho handle the pre-storage-ng situation
* optionally keep it working for pre-storage-ng as necessary for SLE12SP4
* Add corresponding tests for all AC1 mentioned versions, distris
