13. Additional steps preparing the environment for deploymentΒΆ

Depending on the parameters of the baremetal overcloud environment in use, other pre-deployment steps may be needed to ensure that the deployment succeeds. <https://github.com/redhat-openstack/ansible-role-tripleo-overcloud-prep-baremetal/tree/master/tasks> includes a number of these steps.

  • Adding disk size hints
  • Adjusting MTU values
  • Rerunning introspection on failure
