After you successfully deploy your OpenStack environment, you must verify that your environment is operational, as well as configure additional components. After completing the verification, log in to the Horizon dashboard or the OpenStack CLI to operate your environment.

Configure and verify the following:

  1. If you have installed additional OpenStack components, such as the OpenStack application catalog (Murano), the Telemetry service (Ceilometer), the Bare Metal Service (Ironic), or the Hadoop cluster (Sahara), complete the tasks described in the corresponding sub-section in Configure additional components.

  2. Set up shell access to Fuel Master and Fuel Slave nodes to use OpenStack CLI.

  3. Verify that the deployed environment is operational by running the following tests:

  4. Create a backup of your environment and store it in a safe location.

  5. Log in to the Horizon dashboard by clicking Go to Horizon or to the command-line interface to manage your OpenStack environment.


    After you deploy an OpenStack environment, manage the environment from the Horizon dashboard. Use Fuel UI for testing, managing OpenStack nodes, and troubleshooting.
