Virtual

Run the libvirt qemu setup script:

$ bash setup_network.sh
$ bash setup_allinone.sh -i <starlingx iso image>

Accessing Server Consoles

The xml for domains in stx-tools repo, deployment/libvirt, provides both graphical and text consoles.

Access the graphical console in virt-manager by right-click on the domain (the server) and selecting "Open".

Access the textual console with the command "virsh console $DOMAIN", where DOMAIN is the name of the server shown in virsh.

When booting the controller-0 for the first time, both the serial and graphical consoles will present the initial configuration menu for the cluster. One can select serial or graphical console for controller-0. For the other nodes however only serial is used, regardless of which option is selected.

Open the graphic console on all servers before powering them on to observe the boot device selection and PXI boot progress. Run "virsh console $DOMAIN" command promptly after power on to see the initial boot sequence which follows the boot device selection. One has a few seconds to do this.

Controller-0 Host Installation

Installing controller-0 involves initializing a host with software and then applying a configuration from the command line. The configured host becomes Controller-0.
Procedure:

  1. Using an ISO image of StarlingX.
  2. Configure the controller using the config_controller script.

Initializing Controller-0

This section describes how to initialize StarlingX in host Controller-0. Except where noted, all the commands must be executed from a console of the Workstation.

Power on the host to be configured as Controller-0 and wait for the console to show the StarlingX ISO booting options:

  • All-in-one Controller Configuration
    • When the installer is loaded and the installer welcome screen appears in the Controller-0 host, select the type of installation "All-in-one Controller Configuration".
  • Graphical Console
    • Select the "Graphical Console" as the console to use during installation.
  • Standard Security Boot Profile
    • Select "Standard Security Boot Profile" as the Security Profile.
  • Initialization Complete
    • Monitor the initialization until it is complete. When initialization is complete, a reboot is initiated on the Controller-0 host, briefly displays a GNU GRUB screen, and then boots automatically into the StarlingX image.


Log into Controller-0 as user wrsroot, with password wrsroot. The first time you log in as wrsroot, you are required to change your password. Enter the current password (wrsroot):

Changing password for wrsroot.
(current) UNIX Password:

Enter a new password for the wrsroot account:

New password:

Enter the new password again to confirm it:

Retype new password:

Controller-0 is initialized with StarlingX, and is ready for configuration.

Configuring Controller-0

This section describes how to perform the Controller-0 configuration interactively. Except where noted, all the commands must be executed from the console of the active controller (here assumed to be controller-0.

When run interactively, the config_controller script presents a series of prompts for initial configuration of StarlingX. The script is used to configure the first controller in the StarlingX cluster as controller-0. The prompts are grouped by configuration area. To start the script interactively, use the following command with no parameters:

controller-0:~$ sudo config_controller
System Configuration
================
Enter ! at any prompt to abort...
...

Select [y] for System Date and Time:

System date and time:
-----------------------------

Is the current date and time correct?  [y/N]: y

Accept all the default values immediately after ‘system date and time’, for System mode choose "simplex":

...
1) duplex-direct: two node-redundant configuration. Management and
infrastructure networks are directly connected to peer ports
2) duplex - two node redundant configuration
3) simplex - single node non-redundant configuration
System mode [duplex-direct]: 3
...
Applying configuration (this will take several minutes):

Configuration was applied

Please complete any out of service commissioning steps with system commands and unlock controller to proceed.

Controller-0 Host Provision

On Controller-0, acquire Keystone administrative privileges:

controller-0:~$ source /etc/nova/openrc

Configuring Provider Networks at Installation

Set up one provider network of the vlan type, named providernet-a:

[wrsroot@controller-0 ~(keystone_admin)]$ neutron providernet-create providernet-a --type=vlan
[wrsroot@controller-0 ~(keystone_admin)]$ neutron providernet-range-create --name providernet-a-range1 --range 100-400 providernet-a

[wrsroot@controller-0 ~(keystone_admin)]$ system storage-backend-add lvm -s cinder

WARNING : THIS OPERATION IS NOT REVERSIBLE AND CANNOT BE CANCELLED. 

By confirming this operation, the LVM backend will be created.

Please refer to the system admin guide for minimum spec for LVM
storage. Set the 'confirmed' field to execute this operation
for the lvm backend.

Add the LVM storage backend

[wrsroot@controller-0 ~(keystone_admin)]$ system storage-backend-add lvm -s cinder --confirmed

System configuration has changed.
Please follow the administrator guide to complete configuring the system.

Unlocking Controller-0

You must unlock controller-0 so that you can use it to install Controller-1. Use the system host-unlock command:

[wrsroot@controller-0 ~(keystone_admin)]$ system host-unlock controller-0

The host is rebooted. During the reboot, the command line is unavailable, and any ssh connections are dropped. To monitor the progress of the reboot, use the controller-0 console.

Verifying the Controller-0 Configuration

On Controller-0, acquire Keystone administrative privileges:

controller-0:~$ source /etc/nova/openrc

Verify that the controller-0 services are running:

[wrsroot@controller-0 ~(keystone_admin)]$ nova service-list

Note: Sometimes Nova-Compute is down and disable, to enable this service: nova service-enable {id}

controller-0:~$ nova service-enable 2a849a24-b5f5-466d-84a6-7d38f026dadf

| subfunctions        | controller,compute                         |
