hi guys,

i'm looking for a confirmation if is it possible for us to deploy openstack inside a single server? say i have 5 server and i would like to have all my 5 servers running as controller, compute and networking. the reason being for me to deply like this is probably looking for:

  1. High Availability
  2. fully utilize all servers resources.

Just now RDO KIlo (RC2) does AIO packstack install with no problems ( actually, multi node as well )
View :-
Skip part of procedure related to switching to Nova-Docker driver and stay with Libvirt one.
I realize that question was asked with Ubuntu 14.04 in the mind , so view :-
Just replace local.conf like this

   ubuntu@ubuntu-System:~$ cat local.conf


    # Useful logging options for debugging:

    # The default fixed range ( conflicted with an address
    # range I was using locally.

    # Services
    disable_service n-net
    enable_service n-cauth
    enable_service q-svc
    enable_service q-agt
    enable_service q-dhcp
    enable_service q-l3
    enable_service q-meta
    enable_service horizon
    disable_service tempest

  Regarding HA for Controllers it's a separate question.
    General concepts may be found here

Just in case view also :-

Does this means that it is possible for me to have 5 servers being installed as controller, compute, network node and manage from single dashboard?

In regards of RDO Kilo I guess "yes", because I would perform install of all 5 nodes via single packstack run from selected box. I never did several controllers, but network node an compute nodes gets registered with controller on the fly .

Two tables in nova database are responsible for registration "sevices && compute_nodes"

Regarding RDO Kilo , you would better wait 05/07/2015 GA day for release . RC2 is extensively testing and 05/05-06 are official test days for GA release. Versions for CentOS 7.1 and F21 are expected to be out

Yes you can. But it will be a single point of failure.

just in case if you did not get my question correctly. i would like to have these 5 servers to be control by single dashboard and all the features controller, compute, network and also storage - probably i will use ceph. so far i manage to get things working without l3 networking. but not with l3

Try RDO link text or DevStack link text. You will be able to run a full fledged OpenStack on a single server.

This is my DevStack local.conf
