This page records Cloud validation testing test results for the Fedora 23 Final RC9 compose.
Which tests to run
Tests with a Milestone of Basic, Beta or Final are the most important. Optional tests are less so, but still useful to run. The milestone indicates that for that milestone release or a later one to be approved for release, the test must have been run against the release candidate build (so at Beta, all Basic and Beta tests must have been run, for instance). However, it is important to run the tests for all milestones as early and often as possible. Please refer to the test coverage page linked above and try to find and run tests which have not been run at all, or not run recently, for the current release.
How to test
1. Download one or more media for testing, or for EC2 tests, locate and use an appropriate AMI:

2. Perform one or more of the test cases and add your results to the table below
- You can submit results by editing the page directly, or by using relval, with the
relval report-resultscommand. It provides a simple text interface for reporting test results.
3. If a test fails, file a bug report. You may propose the bug as a release blocker or freeze exception bug for the appropriate release - see blocker bug process and freeze exception bug process.
Some tests must be run against particular Products or images - for example, the #Default boot and install tests. If no particular product or image is specified either in this page or the test case page, you can use any appropriate image. For example, you can run most of the #General Tests with the Workstation live image, or either of the Server install images.
If you notice a problem during a test which does not constitute a complete failure of the test, you should still file a bug report, but it may not be appropriate to propose it as a release blocker bug. Use your judgment in deciding this, with reference to the Fedora_Release_Criteria, which these tests are intended to verify. If you are unsure, err on the side of proposing the bug as a blocker.
Results summary page
The Test Results:Fedora 23 Final RC9 Summary page contains the results from this page and all the other validation pages for the same compose listed together to provide an overview.
Add, Modify or Remove a Test Case
- Please request review for your changes by publishing your test case for review to the test mailing list and/or the appropriate working group mailing list (e.g. server, cloud, or desktop).
- Once reviewed, make your changes to any current documents that use the template (e.g. Test_Results:Current_Cloud_Test).
- Lastly, update Template:Cloud_test_matrix with the same changes.
See the table below for a sample format for test results. All test results are posted using the result template.
|Test Result||Explanation||Code Entered|
|Untested - This test has not been run, and is available for anyone to contribute feedback.|
|Passed - The test has been run and the tester determine the test met the expected results|
|Inprogress - An inprogress result is often used for tests that take a long time to execute. Inprogress results should be temporary and change to pass, fail or warn.|
|Failed - Indicates a failed test. A link to a bug must be provided. See Template:Result for details on providing bug information.|
|||Warning - This test completed and met the expected results of the test, but other issues were encountered during testing that warrant attention.
|Multiple results - More people can easily provide results to a single test case.|
|Result from previous test run - This test result is directly moved from the test run of previous <build>.|
|Unsupported - An unsupported test or configuration. No testing is required.|
Cloud Provider Setup
Expand one of the sections below for instructions on getting set up to run these testcases on a specific provider. More information can be found in the Fedora Cloud guide.
- Get an AWS account (the approval process can take hours)
- Make sure that your security group allows for SSH (default tcp port 22)
- Log in to the AWS Management Console
- Obtain the AMI id of the image you want to test. For officially released images, check http://cloud.fedoraproject.org/. If you're doing validation testing, there should be some tables of AMI IDs above; if not, try looking through the messages published by the AMI publisher
- Search for and select the desired AMI on the IMAGES/AMIs section of the EC2 console
- Launch an instance with the AMI under test
Amazon provided this information on various instance types that may be useful to test, in August 2019. Note that you can use 750 hours per month on a t2.micro instance (which is Xen-based) for free for the first year; other instance types, and t2.micro after the first year, cost money. To avoid costs, you can contact the the Infrastructure team and request access to Fedora's AWS account for testing purposes, per this SOP.
- Xen domU with only PV interfaces (e.g., M3 instances)
- Xen domU with Intel 82599 virtual functions for Enhanced Networking (e.g., C3 instances running in a VPC)
- Xen domU with Enhanced Networking Adapter (e.g., R4 instances)
- Xen domU with NVMe local instance storage (e.g., virtualized I3 instances)
- Xen domU with more than 32 vCPUs (e.g., c4.8xlarge)
- Xen domU with four NUMA nodes (e.g., x1.32xlarge)
- Xen domU with maximum RAM available in EC2 (x1e.32xlarge)
- KVM guest with consistent performance (e.g., c5.large)
- KVM guest with burstable performance (e.g., t3.large)
- KVM guest with local NVMe storage (e.g., c5d.large)
- KVM guest with 100 Gbps networking and Elastic Fabric Adapter (c5n.18xlarge)

- Use your own OpenStack deployment
- Provide or create an SSH keypair
- Make sure that your security group allows for SSH (default tcp port 22)
- Log in to the Horizon dashboard
- Find the image URL at http://cloud.fedoraproject.org/ or as provided in release candidate documents.
- Add the image to OpenStack, either using the OpenStack web dashboard (see step 4 here) or with glance image-create --name "Fedora version" --disk-format qcow2 --container-format bare --is-public true --copy-from url
- Launch the instance (in the dashboard, under the "Images" heading, click the "Launch" button for the appropriate image
- You can deploy the cloud image locally either using the well-known
virt-installtool or a Fedora-specific
testcloudtool. See Local cloud testing with virt-install or Testcloud quickstart guide, respectively.
- Once logged in the virtual cloud instance, you can perform the tests below.
