Hi all,

I am trying to setting up the Liberty version of openstack with the pacemaker HA solution. As in the current version of openstack, the keystone leverage on the apache wsgi to serve, does it mean if I can make the httpd HA works fine, then the keystone works fine?

I can find the ocf:openstack:apache in the pcs rescource agent, at the same time I can also find the ocf:openstack:keystone, which one should I leverage?

And any other specification I need to pay attention to?

please kindly let me know your remark. (

not sure whether anybody has used the ocf in this link? is the ocf there still has their API up to date?

Thanks and best regards

I personally wouldn't use a pacemaker setup for Keystone, since Keystone is horizontal scalable per design.

The best imho would be to set up a HAProxy cluster (here comes pacemaker in), send Keystone related HTTP/S requests - using a virtual IP address - to HAProxy and balance over some Keystone nodes.

With that setting the Keystone nodes will be independent, which makes it a lot easier for maintenance work, scaling etc.

cheers, hauke

Sorry didn't log for long. In one of my enviroment, I built the keystone behind the HAproxy. but it is a little bit different from what you have described. I built a resource in pcmk for apache (which is serving as keystone) too. (
