Ubuntu Configuration

In this guide, I am not going to repeat on how to install Ubuntu 20.04, there are plenty of guides there, I will focus on packages preparation after you have Ubuntu 20.04 been installed.

The following task running on all of the nodes

apt update

Configure hostname

sudo hostnamectl set-hostname openstack-controller01sudo hostnamectl set-hostname openstack-controller02sudo hostnamectl set-hostname openstack-controller03sudo hostnamectl set-hostname openstack-ceph01sudo hostnamectl set-hostname openstack-ceph02sudo hostnamectl set-hostname openstack-ceph03sudo hostnamectl set-hostname openstack-compute01sudo hostnamectl set-hostname openstack-compute02sudo hostnamectl set-hostname openstack-staging

Configure /etc/hosts

Configure SSH allow root login

sed -i '/PermitRootLogin/d' /etc/ssh/sshd_config
echo "PermitRootLogin yes" >> /etc/ssh/sshd_config
service sshd reload

SSH password-less login, openstack-staging machine only

Install git gcc and python3-pip

sudo apt-get install git gcc python3-pip sshpass -y

Install Dependencies

sudo apt-get install python3-dev libffi-dev libssl-dev -y

Install Docker Dependencies

sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https ca-certificates curl gnupg2 software-properties-common -y

Add Docker’s official GPG key:

curl -fsSL https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/gpg | sudo gpg --dearmor -o /usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.gpg

Setup Docker Repo

sudo apt-get install \
apt-transport-https \
ca-certificates \
curl \
gnupg \
echo \
"deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.gpg] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu \
$(lsb_release -cs) stable" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list > /dev/null

Install Docker Engine

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io

Configure docker auto-start

sudo systemctl enable docker && systemctl start docker && sudo systemctl status docker

Install pip

sudo apt install python3-pip
sudo pip3 install -U pip

Install ansible

sudo apt install ansible

Install kolla-ansible on staging machine only

sudo pip3 install kolla-ansible==

Create /etc/kolla directory

sudo mkdir -p /etc/kolla
sudo chown $USER:$USER /etc/kolla

Copy globals.yml and passwords.yml to the new you created in previous step /etc/kolla

cp -r /usr/local/share/kolla-ansible/etc_examples/kolla/* /etc/kolla

Copy all-in-one and multinode file into /root directory

cp /usr/local/share/kolla-ansible/ansible/inventory/* .

Download kolla-ansible on staging machine

Git clone kolla and kolla-ansible repo

git clone https://github.com/openstack/kolla
git clone https://github.com/openstack/kolla-ansible
cd kolla
git checkout stable/wallaby
cd ../kolla-ansible
git checkout stable/wallaby

Install kolla-ansible

pip install ./kolla
pip install ./kolla-ansible

Create the /etc/kolla directory.

sudo mkdir -p /etc/kolla
sudo chown $USER:$USER /etc/kolla

Copy the configuration files to /etc/kolla directory. kolla-ansible holds the configuration files ( globals.yml and passwords.yml) in etc/kolla.

cp -r kolla-ansible/etc/kolla/* /etc/kolla

Copy the inventory files to the current directory. kolla-ansible holds inventory files ( all-in-one and multinode) in the ansible/inventory directory.

cp kolla-ansible/ansible/inventory/* .

Configure ansible

For best results, Ansible configuration should be tuned for your environment. For example, add the following options to the Ansible configuration file /etc/ansible/ansible.cfg:
