Hi, Say I have installed devstack stein in a multi-host setup which is running well. If I play around doing some changes in some openstack service's code base - say in nova source files, and I want to test those changes in the same environment without affecting to my running devstack setup.. how can I compile, build and deploy that code in the same environment to test it?

whether I just have to stop all the nova services on my controller node and recompile it and restart it without restarting all other services?

which set of commands can be used for such things and where can I execute those commands?

thanks for your replies.

Python is an interpreted language. You don’t compile/build it. Just change the source and restart the corresponding process(es).

However, you can’t do that without affecting your environment. If you need a stable environment and another one for experimenting, create two environments.
