The Cloud Services team would like to have Debian Jessie systems replaced with Debian Buster (or Stretch if necessary) before 2019-12-31. Please do respond of this task with comments if you know you will not be able to meet that target date or have additional questions about what to do or how to do it. Ideally you will create new instances in your Cloud VPS project, test them, and then migrate any final state data to the new instances before deleting the old Jessie instances. If you need more quota space in your project to create new instances in parallel with your existing instances please create a quota request task describing the increase you need and referencing this deprecation task.

Hello, we will take a look at that. It is possible for this to get done by the deadline, but there are some minor unknowns due to local changes in our puppetmaster. Thanks for the ping.

@crusnov Do you have a guess about when you might find time for this?

What's the status here? I'd recommend to simply create a second puppet master based on Buster and switch existing clients over.

The 2020-04-25 EOL date for Debian Jessie is rapidly approaching. Projects where the status of migration is unknown maybe subject to forced instance shutdown on or before that date. Please reply with a rough timeline/plan for the resolution of this task.

I hope to have a chance in the next 2 weeks or so to resolve this.

2020-04-25 is now a short 2 weeks away.

Is this task still valid and should stay open? Asking as the Due Date on this task says December 2019. If this task is done, please resolve it (via Add Action...Change Status in the dropdown menu). If it is not done, please remove or reset the Due Date (via Edit Task). Thanks!

Are you still using, this, can it be removed?

We shall have to destroy this and recreate it as buster which should be relatively painless. We actually do need this since we need "secrets" for this cluster of boxes afaik.
