I have a OpenStack Havana setup with 2 Server. For the installation I was following this guide: (

Everything runs smoothly. Now I want to add an additional Compute Node, but without providing disk space for Cinder volumes. How can I install Cinder on the second compute node without providing disk space, but be able to launch instances and get the volumes from the first compute node?

  • Controller
  • Compute Node with Cinder
  • (Compute node without Cinder)

Greetings Chris

What is your back-end storage type? LVM? Well, for Lvm, I think you can deploy cinder-volume in server A, and deploy nova-compute in both servers. If you really have to deploy cinder-volume in another server, just do not make LVM volume group.So, the cinder-volume will not become the disk provider. Can it solve your question?
