Misleading message while deploying overcloud with less computes than the avilable in ironic servers.

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • In a scenario in which 10 nodes were introspected, but only 9 out of 10 nodes were used with --scale option in the overcloud deployment.
    one would receive the following message when starting the overcloud deployment:
1 nodes with profile compute won't be used for deployment now.
Configuration has 1 warnings, fix them before proceeding.
  • Few seconds later the deployment starts without letting one fix what was requested to fix.
