Setting up a test environment
- setup Linux distribution (RPM based distro is preferred) on one of your test hardware node
- follow OpenVZ quick installation guide
- install component which you want to test
- please consider setting up logging console, especially if you want to test new versions of OpenVZ kernel.
- add configuration of your hardware node to the QA Team hardware page
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 found a bug, report it as described at reporting OpenVZ problem!
Sometimes a new version of the OpenVZ kernel contains a new feature. Usually we provide a howto describing steps to enable and use the feature.
See OpenVZ features requires testing in QA TODO list.
OpenVZ OS template
Follow these steps to validate new OS template:
- download new OS template (you can use vztmpl-dl(8) tool for that)
- create a container based on that OS template
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.
