Hi , we are trying to deploy basic tripleo openstack. we have one baremetal for undercloud and Can we use only one machine(baremetal) as overcloud?(can be controller and compute)

and also currently we are just trying to get the steps running so for now we set controller param to 1 and compute to 0 in command openstack overcloud deploy

Command is: openstack overcloud deploy --templates -e/usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/environments/network-isolation.yaml -e/usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/environments/storage-environment.yaml -e/usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/environments/monitoring-environment.yaml -e/usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/environments/logging-environment.yaml --stack osphpe --control-scale 1 --compute-scale 0

this command is as per given in docs..however for basic installation do we need to give templates? and how can we define templates or any prebuild templates for basic installation. What templates are essential?

Also what should i do if i do not want my baremetal to be pxe by ironic and want to do it manually? we are confused . please help

Hi, it is possible to deploy overcloud on pre-provisioned nodes without using pxe/ironic. See here:

For a customized deployment, you may have a look at the Chapter 7, 9, 10 of the Red Hat OpenStack Advanced Overcloud Customization manual at here

  1. Do the deployment at least 1 controller and 1 compute node.
  2. Templates will help you to customize the tripleo deployment.
  3. First Start the deployment with default templates, after that you customize the templates whatever you required.
