(Whiteboard: [waiting][jenkins review][triaged 20121102])

We are ready to start running our jenkins environment for socorro-github against a 9.2 postgresql database. This may affect all the socorro-* instances if they are running on distinct systems. 

I'm unfamiliar with the jenkins environment, so help with getting this to the right people would be much appreciated.
Sure thing :) Webops owns jenkins now.

http://jabba.pastebin.mozilla.org/1889312 here is a patch to the postgres2 module to support specific versions.

What it currently doesn't support is upgrading from one version to the next.. Anybody have any good ideas on that? Because of how the version number is in the data path, things could get tricky here.

Let me know if that patch is good to push. I think it should be a noop for existing installations.

Looks good to me.  Do we have those other repos defined anywhere though?
Yeah, I added them to the mrepo module and the yum_repos module today. They should mirror over night tonight, so I'll check in the morning that things are working properly there.
r+ from me for patch

There is a Postgres instance running on the Jenkins box, :selena can you please confirm that's the your tests are using and that the data here is ephemeral?

:jabba, in theory I should be good to use the module and repo changes right?

I'm still testing that the upgrade will work. I think I need to add some more logic to make it upgrade. I'm working on this right now.
I've committed the patch. What this does is allow you to specify a specific version of postgres to manage. Currently though, because of the way the postgres RPMs are set up, taking a 9.0 host and specifying 9.2 will install postgres9.2 and initialize a new database in /var/lib/pgsql/9.2/ and won't actually migrate the data. I'm not sure the best way to automate moving the data to the new directory.. Any thoughts on that?
Severity: normal → major
Per IRC conversation: automating the data migration is likely out of scope. There are some changes to our particular schema that have to be run either after a migration, or as part of a new database load. And a different project, with a different schema, may not need the same migration code.

We're discussing requirements on IRC, 9.0 + 9.2, and confirming what the jenkins job use for credentials so we can plan out how to make these changes

The couple files we may need to tweak


I will review the puppet module and plan out things on Mon

Awesome! Is there anything I can do to help? We have three small issues with tests remaining in our 9.2 compatibility updates, and should have those resolved very shortly.
Just checking in. We've resolved all our issues with the tests, and would love to get this updated.

I should have the new 9.2 node done by the end of the day and will then work with you to get an account, load data, and run some tests.

Ran into what may be a bug in the postgres2 module, :atoll was kind enough to whip up a patch that should fix it, just need to get a r? from :jabba, which should happen tomorrow

I'll update the bug once I have things ready, sorry for the delay

I am working on what should fix this
so it looks like an already existing PGDATA or -D datadir in /var/lib/pgsql/9.2/data already existed and wasn't empty prior to creating it with initdb. When initdb is run with an existing datadir it will not create/overwrite existing files and will fail:

initdb: directory "/var/lib/pgsql/9.2/data" exists but is not empty
If you want to create a new database system, either remove or empty
the directory "/var/lib/pgsql/9.2/data" or run initdb
with an argument other than "/var/lib/pgsql/9.2/data".
I've migrated the data from jenkins1.dmz.phx1 to the new host and the service is now running
One more point, I needed to install the postgresql92-contrib rpm.
Also, need to add the jenkins webhost to pg_hba.conf allows -- I think :solarce is taking care of this...

This is mostly working, we need to do a side-by-side on jenkins1. for libs to build psycopg2, will work on this next week
:solarce -- I talked this over with :rhelmer, and we think that just upgrading to 9.2 libs is fine on Jenkins. 

The libs are designed to be backward compatible for libraries. So as long as the libs aren't being shared with a 9.0 instance of PostgreSQL, we'd be fine. I wasn't aware of how the systems were set up, so my suggestions about libraries were made out of an abundance of caution. 

If we're *only* supporting libraries on that system and not instances of the database, it's totally ok to only have the 9.2 libraries.

Ok, we should be good to do a rebuild of 29 for stage tomorrow
