Automated OSP deployments with Tripleo Quickstart

In this article I’m going to show a method for automating OSP (RedHat OpenStack platform) deployments. These automated deployments can be very useful for CI, or simply to experiment and test with the system. Components involved ansible-cira: set of playbooks to deploy Jenkins, jenkins-job-builder and an optional ELK stack. This will install a ready to use system with all the preconfigured jobs (including OSP10 deployments and image building). ansible-cira jenkins-jobs: A set of job templates and macros, using jenkins-job-builder syntax, that get converted into Jenkins jobs for building the OSP base images and for deploying the system. ansible-cira job-configs: A…

Describing TOAD – TripleO automated deployer

An overview of the TOAD framework and the advantages What is TOAD? Fully automated deployment using Ansible (single command spin up) Main goal: to automate OSP deployments for continuous integration (CI) and development purposes TOAD is a CI framework using off-the-shelf components that many partners are familiar with: Jenkins Jenkins Job Builder (JJB): http://docs.openstack.org/infra/jenkins-job-builder/  TripleO Quickstart (oooq): https://www.rdoproject.org/tripleo/  Optional ELK Stack (ElasticSearch, Logstash, Kibana)  Its core component is TripleO Quickstart, used for TripleO upstream testing Fully customizable with oooq settings; can be extended Deploy environments with one click; trash after finished  Of course it’s open source! 🙂 https://github.com/redhat-nfvpe/toad https://github.com/redhat-nfvpe/jenkins-jobs  https://github.com/redhat-nfvpe/job-configs…

Continued from http://teknoarticles.blogspot.com.es/2016/12/start-using-whole-disk-images-with.html For security reasons, there may be the need of encrypting several partitions of volumes on your images.And you can have a pre-created image with that encryption on place, instead of having to do manually after boot. This can be done with guestfs and luks. The following script will show how to perform that encryption and mount it automatically: #!/usr/bin/env pythonimport binasciiimport guestfsimport os # remove old generated drivetry:    os.unlink(“/tmp/overcloud-full-partitioned.qcow2”)except:    pass g = guestfs.GuestFS(python_return_dict=True) # import old and new imagesprint(“Creating new repartitioned image”)g.add_drive_opts(“/tmp/overcloud-full.qcow2″, format=”qcow2”, readonly=1)g.disk_create(“/tmp/overcloud-full-partitioned.qcow2”, “qcow2”, 10 * 1024 * 1024 * 1024) #10Gg.add_drive_opts(“/tmp/overcloud-full-partitioned.qcow2″, format=”qcow2”, readonly=0)g.launch() # create…
