Use Labels to Identify OpenStack Nodes

The StarlingX OpenStack application is deployed on the nodes of the StarlingX based on node labels.

Prior to initially installing the StarlingX OpenStack application or when adding nodes to a StarlingX OpenStack deployment, you need to label the nodes appropriately for their OpenStack role.

Table 1. Common OpenStack Labels

Label

Worker/Controller

Description

openstack-control-plane

  • Controller

  • All-in-One Controller

Identifies a node to deploy openstack controller services on.

openstack-compute-node

Worker

Identifies a node to deploy openstack compute agents on.

Note

Adding or removing this label, or removing a node with this label from a cluster, triggers the regeneration and application of the helm chart override by Armada.

sriov

  • Worker

  • All-in-One Controller

Identifies a node as supporting sr-iov.

For more information, see StarlingX Node Configuration and Management: Configure Node Labels from The CLI.

Prerequisites

Nodes must be locked before labels can be assigned or removed.

Procedure

  • To remove labels from the host, do the following.

    ~(keystone)admin)$ system host-label-remove compute-0 openstack-compute-node sriov
    Deleted host label openstack-compute-node for host compute-0
    Deleted host label SRIOV for host compute-0
    
  • To assign Kubernetes labels to identify compute-0 as a compute node with SR-IOV, use the following command:

    ~(keystone)admin)$ system host-label-assign compute-0 openstack-compute-node=enabled sriov=enabled
