I deployed Openstack using kolla and kolla-ansible 5.0.0. I deployed on one control node and one compute node. I would now like to add a second compute node. How do I add a second compute node to this already existing environment?

Do I add it the same way I added my first compute node by simply adding it to the multimode inventory file like below


and then run the kolla-anisble command with the reconfigure option like below

kolla-ansible -i multimode reconfigure

Is this all I need to do assuming I have already configured the second compute node to have docker running with all the required images openstack will use?

Hi, to add new hosts/services should use deploy action.

kolla-ansible -i multimode deploy --tags nova --limit <host>

Ok. But before I run this do I still need to run kolla-ansible -I multinode pull So the new compute node will get all the container images put on it?

Not necessary, doing pull before deploy will make deploy faster. If not, deploy will pull as part of container creation.

Why my kolla-ansible cannot use the option --limit?
