Carlos Camacho offers this guide to TripleO.

Carlos Camacho offers this kickstart to TripleO, also known as OpenStack On OpenStack. It’s a program aimed at installing, upgrading and operating OpenStack clouds using OpenStack’s own cloud facilities as the foundations – building on Nova, Neutron and Heat to automate fleet management at datacenter scale.

I have created some cheatsheets for people starting to work on TripleO, mostly to help bootstrap a development environment as soon as possible.

The previous version of this cheatsheet series was used in several community conferences (FOSDEM,, now, they are deprecated as they way TripleO should be deployed changed considerably last months.

Here you have the last version:

The source code of these bookmarks is available as usual on GitHub

And this is the code if you want to execute it directly:

# 01 - Create the toor user.
sudo useradd toor
echo "toor:toor" | chpasswd
echo "toor ALL=(root) NOPASSWD:ALL" \
  | sudo tee -a /etc/sudoers.d/toor
sudo chmod 0440 /etc/sudoers.d/toor
su - toor

# 02 - Prepare the hypervisor node.
mkdir .ssh
ssh-keygen -t rsa -N "" -f .ssh/id_rsa
cat .ssh/ >> .ssh/authorized_keys
sudo bash -c "cat .ssh/ \
  >> /root/.ssh/authorized_keys"
sudo bash -c "echo '' \
  >> /etc/hosts"
export VIRTHOST=
sudo yum groupinstall "Virtualization Host" -y
sudo yum install git lvm2 lvm2-devel -y
ssh [email protected]$VIRTHOST uname -a

# 03 - Clone repos and install deps.
git clone \
chmod u+x ./tripleo-quickstart/
bash ./tripleo-quickstart/ \
sudo setenforce 0

# 04 - Configure the TripleO deployment with Docker and HA.
export CONFIG=~/deploy-config.yaml
cat > $CONFIG << EOF
  - name: control_0
    flavor: control
    virtualbmc_port: 6230
  - name: compute_0
    flavor: compute
    virtualbmc_port: 6231
node_count: 2
containerized_overcloud: true

enable_pacemaker: true
run_tempest: false

  -e /usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/environments/docker.yaml
  -e /usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/environments/docker-ha.yaml

# 05 - Deploy TripleO.
export VIRTHOST=
bash ./tripleo-quickstart/ \
      --clean          \
      --release master \
      --teardown all   \
      --tags all       \
      -e @$CONFIG      \

Happy TripleOing!!!
