Chapter 4. Deploy the Configured Back Ends

Once you have created the custom-env.yaml file in /home/stack/templates/, log in as the stack user. Then, deploy the custom back end configuration by running:

$ openstack overcloud deploy --templates -e /home/stack/templates/custom-env.yaml

If you passed any extra environment files when you created the overcloud, pass them again here using the -e option to avoid making undesired changes to the overcloud. For more information, see Modifying the Overcloud Environment (from Director Installation and Usage).

Once the Director completes the orchestration, test the back end. See Chapter 5, Test the Configured Back End for instructions.
