StarlingX/Installation Guide Virtual Environment/Duplex

Preparing Servers

Bare Metal

Required Servers:

  • Combined Servers (Controller + Compute): 2

Hardware Requirements

The recommended minimum requirements for the physical servers where StarlingX Duplex will be deployed, include:

  • ‘Minimum’ Processor:
    • Dual-CPU Intel® Xeon® E5 26xx Family (SandyBridge) 8 cores/socket
  • Memory: 64 GB
  • BIOS:
    • Hyper-Threading Tech: Enabled
    • Virtualization Technology: Enabled
    • VT for Directed I/O: Enabled
    • CPU Power and Performance Policy: Performance
    • CPU C State Control: Disabled
    • Plug & Play BMC Detection: Disabled
  • Primary Disk:
    • 500 GB SDD or NVMe
  • Additional Disks:
    • 1 or more 500 GB disks (min. 10K RPM)
  • Network Ports
    • Management: 10GE
    • OAM: 10GE
    • Data: n x 10GE

Virtual Environment

Run the libvirt qemu setup scripts. Setting up virtualized OAM and Management networks:

$ bash setup_network.sh

Building xmls for definition of virtual servers:

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

The xml server definitions that are created by the previous script are:

  • controller-0
  • controller-1

Powering Up a Virtual Server

To power up a virtual server, run the following command:

$ sudo virsh start <server-xml-name>

e.g.

$ sudo virsh start controller-0

Accessing Virtual Server Consoles

The xml for virtual servers 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 bootstrap configuration from the command line. The configured bootstrapped host becomes Controller-0.

Procedure:

  1. Power on the server that will be controller-0 with the StarlingX ISO on a USB in a bootable USB slot.
  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 host.

Power on the host to be configured as Controller-0, with the StarlingX ISO on a USB in a bootable USB slot. 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.

Monitor the initialization. When it 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 just to bootstrap system with minimum critical data. 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:

  • For the Virtual Environment, you can accept all the default values immediately after ‘system date and time’.
  • For a Physical Deployment, answer the bootstrap configuration questions with answers applicable to your particular physical setup.

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

For System mode choose “duplex”:

System mode. Available options are:

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]: 2

After System Date / Time and System mode:

Applying configuration (this will take several minutes):

01/08: Creating bootstrap configuration ... DONE
02/08: Applying bootstrap manifest ... DONE
03/08: Persisting local configuration ... DONE
04/08: Populating initial system inventory ... DONE
05:08: Creating system configuration ... DONE
06:08: Applying controller manifest ... DONE
07:08: Finalize controller configuration ... DONE
08:08: Waiting for service activation ... DONE

Configuration was applied

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

After config_controller bootstrap configuration, REST API, CLI and Horizon interfaces are enabled on the controller-0 OAM IP Address. The remaining installation instructions will use the CLI.

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

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)]$ system service-list
+-----+-------------------------------+--------------+----------------+
| id  | service_name                  | hostname     | state          |
+-----+-------------------------------+--------------+----------------+
...
| 1   | oam-ip                        | controller-0 | enabled-active |
| 2   | management-ip                 | controller-0 | enabled-active |
...
+-----+-------------------------------+--------------+----------------+

Verify that controller-0 has controller and compute subfunctions

[wrsroot@controller-0 ~(keystone_admin)]$ system host-show 1 | grep subfunctions
| subfunctions        | controller,compute                         |

Verify that controller-0 is unlocked, enabled, and available:

[wrsroot@controller-0 ~(keystone_admin)]$ system host-list
+----+--------------+-------------+----------------+-------------+--------------+
| id | hostname     | personality | administrative | operational | availability |
+----+--------------+-------------+----------------+-------------+--------------+
| 1  | controller-0 | controller  | unlocked       | enabled     | available    |
+----+--------------+-------------+----------------+-------------+--------------+

Controller-1 Host Installation

After initializing and configuring controller-0, you can add and configure a backup controller controller-1.

Initializing Controller-1 Host

Power on Controller-1. In Controller-1 console you will see:

Waiting for this node to be configured.

Please configure the personality for this node from the
controller node in order to proceed.

Updating Controller-1 Host Host Name and Personality

On Controller-0, acquire Keystone administrative privileges:

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

Wait for Controller-0 to discover new host, list the host until new UNKNOWN host shows up in table:

[wrsroot@controller-0 ~(keystone_admin)]$ system host-list
+----+--------------+-------------+----------------+-------------+--------------+
| id | hostname     | personality | administrative | operational | availability |
+----+--------------+-------------+----------------+-------------+--------------+
| 1  | controller-0 | controller  | unlocked       | enabled     | available    |
| 2  | None         | None        | locked         | disabled    | offline      |
+----+--------------+-------------+----------------+-------------+--------------+

Monitoring Controller-1 Host

On Controller-0, you can monitor the installation progress by running the system host-show command for the host periodically. Progress is shown in the install_state field.

[wrsroot@controller-0 ~(keystone_admin)]$ system host-show controller-1 | grep install
| install_output      | text                                 |
| install_state       | booting                              |
| install_state_info  | None                                 |

Wait while the Controller-1 is configured and rebooted. Up to 20 minutes may be required for a reboot, depending on hardware. When the reboot is complete, the Controller-1 is reported as Locked, Disabled, and Online.

Listing Controller-1 Host

Once Controller-1 has been installed, configured and rebooted, on Controller-0 list the hosts:

[wrsroot@controller-0 ~(keystone_admin)]$ system host-list
+----+--------------+-------------+----------------+-------------+--------------+
| id | hostname     | personality | administrative | operational | availability |
+----+--------------+-------------+----------------+-------------+--------------+

Unlocking Controller-1

Unlock Controller-1

[wrsroot@controller-0 ~(keystone_admin)]$ system host-unlock controller-1

Wait while the Controller-1 is rebooted. Up to 10 minutes may be required for a reboot, depending on hardware.

REMARK: Controller-1 will remain in ‘degraded’ state until data-syncing is complete. The duration is dependant on the virtualization host’s configuration - i.e., the number and configuration of physical disks used to host the nodes’ virtual disks. Also, the management network is expected to have link capacity of 10000 (1000 is not supported due to excessive data-sync time). Use ‘fm alarm-list’ to confirm status.
