Deploying the recovery grid node in OpenStack using the deployment utility

You can use the provided deployment utility to deploy the recovered grid node in OpenStack. Using the utility is simpler, less error prone, and allows you to create a repeatable deployment process and may be more time efficient in some situations.

Before you begin


  1. Log in to the Linux machine you are using to run the deployment utility.
  2. List the node names for all grid nodes defined in the configuration file, and identify the node name of the failed grid node:deploy-sgws-openstack --verbose list --config config-file
  3. Remove the failed grid node from OpenStack. Enter: deploy-sgws-openstack destroy --config config-file -F node-name
    Tip: You can enter deploy-sgws-openstack -h for general help on the deployment utility, or deploy-sgws-openstack destroy -h for help on the destroy option of the utility.
  4. Run the deployment utility to deploy the recovered node(s). deploy-sgws-openstack --verbose deploy --config config-file --image image-name-or-id node-name node-name
    This command deploys two nodes named dc1-gw1 and dc1-adm1. deploy-sgws-openstack deploy --config config.ini --image image_name dc1-gw1 dc1-adm1
    If you do not specify a node name or names for the command, all grid nodes are redeployed.


The deployment is complete when the status is "Deployment Complete".
dc1-adm1: Node dc1-gw1 dc1-adm1 complete
Deployment complete
