VM getting deployed in Overcloud Controller instead of Compute Host

Hello Stackers,

Recently i was testing Triple-o deployment (Pike) on HP servers , i manage to deploy all components under cloud, over cloud , compute host etc without any error. After VM creation i noticed that every time i create it will host on Controller rather than compute hosts 1,2 . since the controller host is already loaded with openstack services i am not able to test some features between hosts... Do we have any workaround to host VM on computes ?

Thanks in advance Sheshadri

You can temporarily disable compute services on the controller with openstack compute service set.

I suspect, however, that some misconfiguration prevents the compute nodes from receiving instances.

@Bernd baush : i have tried disabling computer service on controller and creating instance on compute got error "No valid host was found. There are not enough hosts available" even though i have enough space to launch the instances. is there any host to cell mapping needs to done on computer host ?

You map a host to a cell by configuring the message queue and database servers to which it connects. I don't know how TripleO does that, and whether it supports multi-cell configuration. You are unlikely to have more than one cell.

In any case, cell mapping has nothing to do with your problem.

Space is not the only criterion for selecting a compute node. Check the scheduler log for reasons why the hosts are considered unsuitable for running your instance. You may have to configure debug logging.

Sorry to ask the obvious, but you have 'sourced' overcloudrc and not trying to depoy using the 'stackrc' (undercloud) credentials ?
Other things to check.. (again using . ~/overcloudrc) * openstack hypervisor list * check you hypervisor resources again the flavours
