Install nova on controller node

asked 2015-11-11 04:17:23 -0500

Hi all,

I've successfully deployed openstack on two physical machines. Both machines has equal hardware specifications. So as I see the resources on controller node(CPU, RAM, HDD) are not being used as it is in Compute node. My question is can I install nova on controller node? does it sounds a good idea? why I should or shouldn't do it.? I followed the official guide to come this far. (http://docs.openstack.org/liberty/install-guide-ubuntu). As I understood if I'm to install this on controller node too, I just have to follow the exact same steps I followed to install nova on compute1 on controller node. Any thought on this concern is highly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, you want to spin up the Virtual Machines in controller node ? Of course its not a good Idea. See, as per the documentation, you can see the minimum HW requirement is two nodes. One controller and one Compute.

yes, But I get the idea of the resources of controller node left unused. Both machines are configured with good hardware specifications.
