Chapter 4. Deploy the Configured Back End
The Director installation uses a non-root user to execute commands, which includes orchestrating the deployment of the Block Storage back end. In Creating a Director Installation User, a user named
stack is created for this purpose. This user is configured with elevated privileges.
To deploy the lone back end configured in Chapter 3, Define a Single Back End, first log in as the
stack user to the Undercloud. Then, deploy the back end (defined in the edited
~/templates/cinder-dellsc-config.yaml) by running the following:
$ openstack overcloud deploy --templates -e ~/templates/cinder-dellsc-config.yaml
Once the Director completes the orchestration, test the back end. See Chapter 5, Test the Configured Back End for instructions.
