I'm working to standup MAAS and OpenStack on Ubuntu 18.04. MAAS is installed and managing my hardware and I am now attempting to install OpenStack via conjure-up. When conjure-up calls juju bootstrap is is requesting the default series 'xenial' as specified in the juju.py file.

If I call juju from the command line it uses 'bionic'. I can't find any documentation on how to pass the bootstrap-series value to juju from conjure-up. Any ideas?


I know if you delete the image from the the MAAS controller it will install 18.04. I haven't have any luck trying to get 18.04 + working on nodes, it always picked 16.04 when it sorta works.


You have more control of what series you would like to deploy (controller only):

$ juju bootstrap --help | grep series
--bootstrap-series (= "")
    Specify the series of the bootstrap machine

$ juju bootstrap --bootstrap-series=xenial

Select a cloud [localhost]: hit enter here for localhost as default choice

Enter a name for the Controller [localhost-localhost]: test1

Above creates a controller with xenial. To create one with bionic run:

$ juju bootstrap --bootstrap-series=bionic

2) start conjure-up, select software to deploy and then you will be asked if you want to create new controller or use existing one. Select the controller created in step 1 and continue.

You could also bootstrap controller manually to lxd https://docs.jujucharms.com/2.4/en/clouds-LXD

and when it launches by default as you mentioned it would be bionic. Quick and easy.

Hope it will help. Thanks B
