Before deployment

Before proceeding with the steps outlined in the following sections and executing the actions detailed therein, it is imperative that you clone the essential Git repositories containing all the required Helm charts, deployment scripts, and Ansible roles. This preliminary step will ensure that you have access to the necessary assets for a seamless deployment process.

mkdir ~/osh
cd ~/osh
git clone https://opendev.org/openstack/openstack-helm.git
git clone https://opendev.org/openstack/openstack-helm-infra.git

All further steps assume these two repositories are cloned into the ~/osh directory.

Also before deploying the OpenStack cluster you have to specify the OpenStack and the operating system version that you would like to use for deployment. For doing this export the following environment variables

export OPENSTACK_RELEASE=2023.2
export CONTAINER_DISTRO_NAME=ubuntu
export CONTAINER_DISTRO_VERSION=jammy
