[qa][infra][stable] Stable branches gate status: tempest-full-* jobs failing for stable/ocata|pike|queens
tempest-full-* jobs are failing on stable/queens, stable/pike, and stable/ocata(legacy-tempest-dsvm-neutron-full-ocata) .ld
Please hold any recheck till fix is merged.
whoami-rajat reported about the tempest-full-queens-py3 job failure and later while debugging we found that same is failing
for pike and ocata(job name there - legacy-tempest-dsvm-neutron-full-ocata).
Failure is due to "Timeout on connecting the vnc console url" because there is no 'n-cauth' service running which is required
for these stable branches. In Ussuri that service has been removed from nova.
'n-cauth' has been removed from ENABLED_SERVICES recently in - https://review.opendev.org/#/c/700217/ which effected only
stable branches till queens. stable/rocky|stein are working because we have moved the services enable things from devstack-gate's
test matrix to devstack base job. Patch was not backported to stable/queens and stable/pike which I am not sure why.
We have two ways to fix the stable branches gate:
1. re-enable the n-cauth in devstack-gate. Hope all other removes services create no problem.
pros: easy to fix, fix for all three stable branches.
2. Backport the 546765 to stable/queens and stable/pike.
pros: this removes the dependency form test-matrix which is the overall goal to remove d-g dependency.
cons: It cannot be backported to stable/ocata as no zuulv3 base jobs there. This is already EM and anyone still cares about this?
I think for fixing the gate (Tempest master and stable/queens|pike|ocata), we can go with option 1 and later
we backport the devstack migration.
