Hello Alan,
Thanks for your reply!

I am afraid that the reason for my deployment failure might be concerned
with the environment file I use to configure my cinder backend.
The configuration is quite similar to
So I wonder if it is possible to run a deployment where I tell 'TripleO' to
use my customize container, using containers-prepare-parameter.yaml, but
without the environment file =cinder-infinidat-config.yaml, and configure
the backend / start cinder-volume services manually?
Or I must have a minimum config as I find in:
'/usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/deployment/cinder/' (for other
If I do need such a cinder-volume-VENDOR-puppet.yaml config to be
integrated during overcloud deployment, where is documentation that
explains how to construct this? Do I need to use cinder-base.yaml as a
When looking at the web for "cinder-volume-container-puppet.yaml" I found
the Git Page of overcloud-resource-registry-puppet.j2.yaml
and found also
but it is not so explanatory.

I have opened a case with RedHat as well and they are checking who from
their R&D could help since it's out of the scope of support.
