You can revert to the previous VMware Integrated OpenStack deployment if the upgrade failed or if you do not want to use the new version.

Important:

The old deployment is required for reversion. If you have already deleted the old deployment, you cannot revert to the previous version.

Procedure

  1. In the vSphere Client, select Menu > VMware Integrated OpenStack and click OpenStack Deployments.
  2. In the Deployment List tab, click the Options (three dots) icon next to the new deployment and select Delete OpenStack Deployment.

    If you want to retain the new deployment for further testing, you can select Stop OpenStack Services instead.

    Note:

    After you switch to the old OpenStack Management Server, the Delete OpenStack Deployment option is no longer available. You can manually delete the virtual machines associated with the new deployment in the vSphere Client.

  3. Log in to the OpenStack Management Server of the old deployment and restart the OpenStack Management Server service.
    service oms restart
  4. Log in to the vCenter Server virtual machine, stop the vSphere Client service, delete residual files, and restart the service.
    service-control --stop vsphere-ui
    cd /etc/vmware/vsphere-ui/vc-packages/vsphere-client-serenity/
    rm -rf *
    cd /usr/lib/vmware-vsphere-client/server/work
    rm -rf *
    service-control --start vsphere-ui
  5. Log out of the vSphere Client and log back in.
  6. In the vSphere Client, select Home > VMware Integrated OpenStack and click OpenStack Deployments.
  7. In the Summary tab, click the Change Server... button.
  8. Click OK and select the OpenStack Management Server of the old deployment.
  9. In the Deployment List tab, click the Options (three dots) icon next to the old deployment and select Start OpenStack Services.

What to do next

If you chose to stop services instead of deleting the new deployment, you can manually remove its virtual machines in the vSphere Client. If you deleted the new deployment, its virtual machines are removed automatically.
