Overview

This charm is in ALPHA state, currently in active development.

Developers can be reached on freenode channel #openstack-charms.

The nova-compute-proxy charm deploys OpenStack Nova Compute to a pre-existing rpm-based Power8 PowerKVM or s390x z/KVM machine, where the remainder of the Ubuntu OpenStack control plane and storage applications are deployed to machines via MAAS.

Usage

To deploy a nova-compute-proxy service, have the following prepared in advance:

  • PowerKVM or z/KVM machine(s) manually provisioned, booted, accessible from the control plane units, with network interfaces and storage ready to use.
  • An ssh key that the charm can use to remotely execute installation and configuration operations.
  • Yum repository/repositories or .iso file(s) which contain the appropriate IBM OpenStack RPMs. If using .iso file(s), they must be loop-mounted on the compute node host.
  • Password-less sudo for the specified user configured on the compute node.

Once you have this setup you must configure the charm as follow:

  • Apply the following charm config:
    • remote-user: username used to access and configure the power node.
    • remote-repos: Yum repository url(s) or file url(s)
    • remote-hosts: IP address of power node
    • remote-key: Private key string to use for access
    • Example:
      remote-user: youruser
      remote-repos: file:///tmp/openstack-iso/openstack,file:///tmp/other-iso/repofs
      remote-key: |
