Following the tutorial on i've set up a small OpenStack environment on juju and MAAS. One problem is that it only runs essex. To me it seems strange since grizzly is coming soon.

Watching this video seeing how easy Shuttleworth updated his essex to folsom i tried that approach, but that just made config errors. So how is the approach - how can i update it easily? And which charms to use?

Finally i found a solution. For the interested i will bring my solution here:

To update from Essex to Folsom we want to use the Ubuntu Cloud Archive. That unfortunatly is not possible at the moment by default in MaaS. It has been reported as a bug. I realized this after debugging the hooks in the nova-cloud-controller charm, which is one of the charms giving errors when updating.

To enable cloud repositories on MaaS do the following:

Go edit /etc/squid-deb-proxy/mirror_dstdomain.acl, line 14: and change the line


This solves the problem and changing openstack-orign on each charm from distro to cloud:precise-folsom will update from essex to folsom!
