### Adding compute node to an existing openstack environment

I deployed Openstack using kolla and kolla-ansible 5.0.0. I deployed on one control node and one compute node. I would now like to add a second compute node. How do I add a second compute node to this already existing environment?

Do I add it the same way I added my first compute node by simply adding it to the multimode inventory file like below

[compute]
openstackcompute1
openstackcompute2


and then run the kolla-anisble command with the reconfigure option like below

kolla-ansible -i multimode reconfigure


Is this all I need to do assuming I have already configured the second compute node to have docker running with all the required images openstack will use?
