How to test upgrade with production data?

Does anyone have an idea on how I can test upgrading MAAS with data from my production instance?

Hi @zmance .

Could you clarify what do you mean by “test”?

Hi @zmance

You can create a backup of your existing MAAS installation, then upgrade to a new version and in case of any issues you can always restore from the backup.

@r00ta I wanted to test commissioning scripts and REST API calls against new version of MAAS.

@troyanov I am running in LXC container. Would taking a snapshot of MAAS and postgresDB container be a sufficient backup?


Yes, it’s enough to make the snapshot of maas and dump the db
