[openstack-dev] [openstack-ansible] Install Openstack-Ansible

Hi Major,

Thanks for the steps.

To add a new container, we have followed the steps as mentioned in the extra_container.yml.example. Please find the sample designate.yml file attached and created as per the steps.

To add the new roles in openstack-ansible repository, shall I create the directory looking at what is there for keystone or other components and make the configuration changes only, or can I clone it from somewhere also?

Thereafter, as suggested by you, I have to test this new container with the existing ones.

I believe there is no such link available with such steps and 'how to' part for openstack-ansible. Please let me know if you/anyone else have already done this part to add a new component container similarly.

Thanks & Regards

Hello Sharma,

I haven't implemented a new service in openstack-ansible quite yet, but
I'll give you some tips.

First, you'll need to use the extra_container.yml.example[1] to make a
new container.

Next, you'll want to create a role that will configure the operating
system and the required services within the container. You can review
the roles within the openstack-ansible repository to see what is
typically configured in each one.  The keystone role[2] might be a good
place to start.

>From there, you'll need to test the container build-out and
configuration to make sure the service works well with the other
services (like authentication with keystone).
