7.4. Monitoring the Overcloud Creation

The Overcloud creation process begins and the director provisions your nodes. This process takes some time to complete. To view the status of the Overcloud creation, open a separate terminal as the stack user and run:
$ source ~/stackrc                # Initializes the stack user to use the CLI commands
$ heat stack-list --show-nested
The heat stack-list --show-nested command shows the current stage of the Overcloud creation.
