Deploy Tungsten Fabric

Deployment of Tungsten Fabric (TF) is managed by the tungstenfabric-operator Helm resource in a respective MOS ClusterRelease.

To deploy TF:

  1. Verify that you have completed all prerequisite steps as described in Tungsten Fabric deployment prerequisites.

  2. Create a tungstenfabric.yaml file with the TF resource configuration. For example:

    kind: TFOperator
      name: openstack-tf
      namespace: tf
        orchestrator: openstack

    If you do not specify tfVersion, MOS deploys TF 2011. We do not recommend deploying TF 5.1 as this version is considered deprecated and will be declared unsupported in one of the upcoming releases.

  3. Configure the TFOperator custom resource according to the needs of your deployment. For the configuration details, refer to TFOperator custom resource.

  4. Trigger the TF deployment:

    kubectl apply -f tungstenfabric.yaml
  5. Verify that TF has been successfully deployed:

    kubectl get pods -n tf

    The successfully deployed TF services should appear in the Running status in the system response.

  6. Starting from MOS 21.1, if you have enabled StackLight, enable Tungsten Fabric monitoring by setting tungstenFabricMonitoring.enabled to true as described in StackLight configuration procedure.
