Description Yedidyah Bar David 2019-03-25 10:31:27 UTC
Description of problem:

The Metrics store installation guide was recently updated to say it's based on OCP 3.11 and creates the metrics VMs automatically. This replaced a manual procedure that explained how to do this manually.

This should be reverted for now, because the automatic installation is not available in 4.2, only in 4.3.

We intend to rebase metrics in 4.2 soon to the 4.3 version, and when we do, we can go back to the current version.

We should add a note in the manual procedure, saying something like this:

This procedure installs OCP 3.9, which is out of support. A new and simplified procedure will be provided soon, which will use OCP 3.11.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

4.2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_virtualization/4.2/html-single/metrics_store_installation_guide/
2.
3.

Actual results:

It says it's based on OCP 3.11 and that 'configure_ovirt_machines_for_metrics.sh --playbook=ovirt-metrics-store-installation.yml' creates and installs a machine.

Expected results:

It should say OCP 3.9 and supply the manual procedure.
