Add a compute node

Add a compute node

This section describes how to add a new compute node to your existing Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes deployment.

To add a compute node:

  1. Add a bare metal host to the managed cluster with MOS as described in Mirantis Container Cloud Operations Guide: Add a bare metal host.

  2. Create a Kubernetes machine in your cluster as described in Mitantis Container Cloud Operations Guide: Add a machine.

    When adding the machine, specify the node labels as required for an OpenStack compute node:

    OpenStack node roles

    Node role


    Kubernetes labels

    Minimal count

    OpenStack control plane

    Hosts the OpenStack control plane services such as database, messaging, API, schedulers, conductors, L3 and L2 agents.



    OpenStack compute

    Hosts the OpenStack compute services such as libvirt and L2 agents.

    openvswitch=enabled (for a deployment with Open vSwitch as a back end for networking)


  3. If required, configure the compute host to enable DPDK, huge pages, SR-IOV, and other advanced features in your MOS deployment. See MOS Deployment Guide: Advanced OpenStack configuration (optional) for details.
