Chapter 6. Creating Ansible playbooks with the all-in-one Red Hat OpenStack Platform environment

The deployment command applies Ansible playbooks to the environment automatically. However, you can modify the deployment command to generate Ansible playbooks without applying them to the deployment, and run the playbooks later.

Include the --output-only option in the deploy command to generate the standalone-ansible-XXXXX directory. This directory contains a set of Ansible playbooks that you can run on other hosts.

  1. To generate the Ansible playbook directory, run the deploy command with the option --output-only:

    [stack@all-in-one]$ sudo openstack tripleo deploy \
      --templates \
      --local-ip=$IP/$NETMASK \
      -e /usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/environments/standalone/standalone-tripleo.yaml \
      -r /usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/roles/Standalone.yaml \
      -e $HOME/containers-prepare-parameters.yaml \
      -e $HOME/standalone_parameters.yaml \
      --output-dir $HOME \
      --standalone \
  2. To run the Ansible playbooks, run the ansible-playbook command, and include the inventory.yaml file and the deploy_steps_playbook.yaml file:

    [stack@all-in-one]$ cd standalone-ansible-XXXXX
    [stack@all-in-one]$ sudo ansible-playbook -i inventory.yaml deploy_steps_playbook.yaml
