fedorapeople.org upgrade

March 27, 2012

The outage today was to move fedorapeople to a new guest on a machine with more disk space and bandwidth. Things seemed to have gone smoothly. The big change is we made a space for projects that is outside of the normal quota’d userspace on fedorapeople. If you need a project space that’s web accessible (or even not web accessible) file a ticket or let someone in fedora infrastructure know and we can get the space set up for you lickety-split.

A week and a half ago I posted about func-vhost-reboot. After that is working and functional I realized I needed a func-host-reboot, too -for the non-vhost-wide reboots.


it’s pretty simple – it reboots a set of hosts and checks to make sure they all come back online. It also adds a ‘–one-at-a-time’ option which is pretty handy. For example if you want to bounce all your nameservers for some reason but you don’t want them ALL to be bouncing at the same time. Then you’d pass –one-at-a-time or -o. It will reboot them each at a time, waiting for the one being rebooted to come back before proceeding to the next one.

I wrote this a couple of weeks ago but I hadn’t had a chance to test it in real use until yesterday:


It assumes you’ve created groups for your vhosts using this:

Then you run:
func-vhost-reboot fqdn-of-virthost [@virthost-group]

It connects to all of the guests on the virthost, looks to see if there are any users logged in and displays that info if there is. Then it asks you to confirm halting the guests. It waits for them to halt. Then it reboots the virthost and waits for it to come back up. Once it is back up it confirms that the guests have returned in the same state as they were before they were halted. I did a bunch of tests on it yesterday and it worked pretty well.

Take a look.
