# oc get nodes
After having gone through the process of building an OpenShift environment, it’s important to go through a few validation steps to ensure that all components are in proper working order. This document walks you through those steps.
# oc get nodes
Check the output to ensure that:
All expected hosts (masters and nodes) are listed and show as
Ready in the
All masters show as unschedulable
All labels that were listed in the ansible inventory files are accurate
oc status command is helpful to validate that a namespace is in the state that you expect it to be in. This is especially helpful after doing an install to, at a high level, check that all of the supporting services and pods that you expect to exist actually do. At minimum, you should see the following after a successful install:
a Kubernetes service
a Router service with one or more pods
a Registry service with one or more pods
An example of a healthy output might look like:
# oc status In project default on server https://master.exaple.com:8443 svc/docker-registry - 172.30.164.69:5000 dc/docker-registry deploys registry.access.redhat.com/openshift3/ose-docker-registry:v126.96.36.199 #2 deployed 6 weeks ago - 1 pod #1 deployed 6 weeks ago exposed by route/registry svc/kubernetes - 172.30.0.1 ports 443, 53, 53 svc/router-default - 172.30.25.65:80 dc/router-default deploys registry.access.redhat.com/openshift3/ose-haproxy-router:v188.8.131.52 #1 deployed 6 weeks ago - 1 pod To see more, use 'oc describe <resource>/<name>'. You can use 'oc get all' to see a list of other objects.
# oc get pods -n default [ copy the pod name for the registry pod(s) ] # oc logs <pod name>
Ensure that the logs say that the registry is listening on port 5000.
# oc get pods [ copy the pod name for the router pod(s) ] # oc logs <pod name>
OpenShift provides an additional CLI tool that can perform more fine grained diagnostics, including validating that services can see eachother, than certificates are valid, and much more. The output of a diagnostics run can be quite verbose, but will include a final report of
Warnings at the end. If there are errors or warnings, you may want to go back to them and validate that they are not errors and warnings for any critical services.
|Not all errors or warnings warrant action. The diagnostics check will additionally examine all deployed services and report anything out of the ordinary. This could include apps that may have been misconfigured by a developer, and would not necessarily warrant administrative intervention.|
# oadm diagnostics .... Lots of output ...... [Note] Summary of diagnostics execution (version v184.108.40.206-16-g112fcc4): [Note] Warnings seen: 3 [Note] Errors seen: 1
Previous to OpenShift Enterprise 3.2 the diagnostics was a tech preview and part of the
Going through the process of running one of our Quickstart Templates validates that all of the components we’ve installed work together. The following commands will:
Validate Authentication (make sure a user can log in)
Make sure we can run a build
Ensures proper connectivity to Git
Ensures proper connectivity to an External Image registry
Tests that our Registry is working and that we can push images to it
Make sure we can run a Deploy
Checks that triggers work
Checks that we can create an app Pod
Make sure that we can expose an app and hit it through our Router
Checks that the Router is properly set up
Follow the steps below
# oadm new-project validate # oadm policy add-role-to-user admin joe -n validate # oc login -u joe [Enter password] # oc new-app --template=nodejs-example -n validate [Wait for build to start] # oc get pods | grep build [ copy the pod id ] # oc logs -f <pod id> [ Look for message saying an image was successfully pushed ] # oc get deploymentConfig [ copy the deploymentConfig name ] # oc deploy <deploymentConfig> [ make sure you see a deployment has succeeded ] # oc get routes [ copy the `hostname` field] # curl http://[hostname] [ should get back html output ]
Between OpenShift Enterprise 3.1 and 3.2, there was a slight change in the way Deploment events show in the CLI. The above command (
Finally, make sure you can pull up your app via a web browser, and that you see a welcome page.
