Part III Setting Up OpenStack Nodes and Services

10 The Crowbar Web Interface

The Crowbar Web interface runs on the Administration Server. It provides an overview of the most important deployment details in your cloud. This includes a view of the nodes and which roles are deployed on which nodes, and the barclamp proposals that can be edited and deployed. In addition, the Crowbar Web interface shows details about the networks and switches in your cloud. It also provides graphical access to tools for managing your repositories, backing up or restoring the Administration Server, exporting the Chef configuration, or generating a supportconfig TAR archive with the most important log files.

11 Installing the OpenStack Nodes

The OpenStack nodes represent the actual cloud infrastructure. Node installation and service deployment is done automatically from the Administration Server. Before deploying the OpenStack services, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP3 will be installed on all Control Nodes and Storage Nodes.

12 Deploying the OpenStack Services

After the nodes are installed and configured you can start deploying the OpenStack components to finalize the installation. The components need to be deployed in a given order, because they depend on one another. The Pacemaker component for an HA setup is the only exception from this rule—it can be …

13 Limiting Users' Access Rights

To limit users' access rights (or to define more fine-grained access rights), you can use Role Based Access Control (RBAC, only available with Keystone v3). In the example below, we will create a new role (ProjectAdmin). It allows users with this role to add and remove other users to the Member role…

14 Configuration Files for OpenStack Services

Typically, each OpenStack component comes with a configuration file, for example: /etc/nova/nova.conf.

These configuration files can still be used. However, to configure an OpenStack component and its different components and roles, it is now preferred to add custom configuration file snippets to a SERVICE.conf.d/ directory instead.
