Client not found in kerberos database

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • One node failed to deploy when deploying a new environment so the overcloud deployment failed.

  • The failed node has been deleted using the compute removal procedure and then, the deployment was attempted back again with the expectation of getting a successful deployment.

  • There are no records for this compute in IdM.

  • The new deployment failed with an error similar to this one:

 "Error: /Stage[main]/Tripleo::Profile::Base::Certmonger_user/Tripleo::Certmonger::Libvirt[libvirt-client-cert]/Certmonger_certificate[libvirt-client-cert]: Could not evaluate: Could not get certificate: Error setting up ccache for \"host\" service on client using default keytab: Client 'host/compute-0.DOMAIN.COM@DOMAIN.COM' not found in Kerberos database."
