Securing RHV based virtual ctrlplane.

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • To configure Red Hat OpenStack (RHOSP) to be deployed with virtualized ctrl plane on top of Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) we need to provide Ironic and Pacemaker with access to the RHV admin user and password.
  • Our documentation uses the admin@internal user credentials.
  • This may be ok for most deployments however may not meet the needs of customers in secured environments.
  • This could be considered a security risk as anyone with access to the RHOSP infrastructure can obtain the credentials to take control of the RHV infrastructure.
