Home OpenStack-Ansible Developer Documentation


The OpenStack-Ansible playbooks are stored in the playbooks directory.

There are several top-level playbooks that are run to prepare the host machines before actually deploying OpenStack and associated containers.

Running Playbooks

There is an openstack-ansible command installed by the scripts/bootstrap-ansible.sh script. This wraps the ansible-playbook command and provides the /etc/openstack_deploy/user_*.yml variable files to the playbooks.

All of the playbooks should be run within the openstack-ansible/playbooks directory

Setting up the Hosts

Run openstack-ansible setup-hosts.yml to set up the physical hosts for containers.

Setting up Infrastructure

Infrastructure pertains to utility services such as RabbitMQ, memcached, galera, and logging which are not actually OpenStack services, but that OpenStack relies on.

Run openstack-ansible setup-infrastructure.yml to install these containers.

Setting up OpenStack

Running openstack-ansible setup-openstack.yml will install the following OpenStack services:

  • Keystone
  • Swift
  • Glance
  • Cinder
  • Nova
  • Neutron
  • Heat
  • Horizon
