just like the question asks...

i have a perfectly good, working instance of RDO on CentOS 7.x...and I don't want anything to change. however, during my packstack run I didn't enable the trove features. as luck would have it...i would like to add them. my understanding is that i could re-run packstack against my generated answers file, but i have a lot of custom users added with assigned roles, i have a lot of instances running for a microservices architecture demo running (atomic, kubernetes, docker vs a coreos, kubernetes, docker, etc.). in past experience, it seems that packstack will set some things back to default (passwords are understandable, if these are changed after the initial packstack run). what is the best way of adding trove with as little disruption to my existing environment as possible? i really don't want much to change...it's working perfectly as it is. i tried looking through the RDO documentation, but while some of it is extremely useful, some of it is outdated...

thanks for the help/suggestions!

Manuals like http://docs.openstack.org/juno/instal...
Set up trove on Controller.

How would this work if you are running an all in one installation? How can you EXCLUDE SERVERS and run an updated answer file?? I want to enable Trove and Murano but do not want to destroy my lab.

In case AIO I would run with CONFIG_TROVE_INSTALL=y from scratch ( on clean OS install, just to be safe)

yeah, the fact that i want to do this to an existing AIO box makes adding trove a bit tricky (as in remembering all of the EXCLUDES, etc). we're right on the heals of the L release...so it may be best to wait to do this during the upgrade. i'll want to add magnum too; hopefully it will be included.

Hi tic toc, have you enabled Murano by Packstack successfully? I'm using Packstack Mitaka, can you share me the document? Thanks so much!

There is CONFIG_TROVE_INSTALL which may be set to "y" in your answer-file. You may have EXCLUDE_SERVERS= < ALL, except CONTROLLER>
Rerun packstack with updated answer-file. It will for sure install trove services on Controller.
I tested on AIO node.
