Setting up a test environment

Exploratory testing

With an installed version of the development release up and running, you can perform exploratory testing against any packages of components you wish. Go wild! Try and break things! See if the new software can handle the unexpected, or even the normal use cases. If you find a bug, report it!

OpenVZ kernel

Sometimes new version of OpenVZ kernel contains new feature. Usually we provide howto described steps to enable feature and shortest steps how to use it.

See OpenVZ features requires testing in QA TODO list.

OpenVZ OS template

We release OS templates as soon as new version of appropriate Linux distro is available. New OS templates announced on wiki. Follow these steps to validate new OS template:

  • download new OS template
  • create cache for it
  • create container based on that OS template

Bug validation

In each release we do our best to fix as much bugs as possible. You can help us with validation of bugs fixed in latest version.

  • open changelog of component in News (see as example ploop-1.12.2)
  • find numbers of bugs fixed in that version
  • try to reproduce each bug on your test environment and keep appropriate comment in OpenVZ bugzilla about results
