Hello, I have completed a Queens Openstack installation using Tripleo and CentOS 7 and configuring 2 compute nodes, 3 controller nodes and 3 ceph OSD nodes, with containers and Pacemaker, to be similar enough with OSP 13.

Now I would like to try Openstack Train using CentOS 8, to get a configuration similar to the OSP 16 one.

At this page: (link text) I see:

  • Deploying OpenStack using Ansible in Docker Containers (kolla) Guide => both CentOS 7 and 8 referenced

  • OpenStack-Ansible Deployment Guide => only CentOS 7 referenced

  • TripleO Deployment Guide => only CentOS 7 referenced

Are they consistent so that to use CentOS 8 I can only go with the first option and not with TripleO? Is TripleO going to be deprecated, perhaps?

Thanks in advance, Gianluca

I would say it's not safe to use Tripleo on Centos 8. Most likely, the installation will fail very early, when you are unable to install required packages. Since it fails early, you don't waste much time, so go ahead!

Tripleo is more or less the same thing as OSP. I can't imagine it is obsolete.
