Deploy JOID in your LAB:

Bare Metal Installations:

Requirements as per Pharos:


minimum 2 networks

  • First for Admin network with gateway to access external network
  • Second for public network to consume by tenants for floating ips

NOTE: JOID support multiple isolated networks for data as well as storage. Based on your network options for Openstack.

Minimum 6 physical servers.

1. Jump Host server:

Minimum H/W Spec needed
 CPU cores: 16
 Memory: 32 GB
 Hard Disk: 1(250 GB)
 NIC: eth0(Admin, Management), eth1 (external network)

2. Control Node Servers (minimum 3):

 Minimum H/W Spec
 CPU cores: 16
 Memory: 32 GB
 Hard Disk: 1(500 GB)
 NIC: eth0(Admin, Management), eth1 (external network)

3. Compute Node Servers (minimum 2):

 Minimum H/W Spec
 CPU cores: 16
 Memory: 32 GB
 Hard Disk: 1(1 TB) this includes the space for ceph as well
 NIC: eth0(Admin, Management), eth1 (external network)

NOTE: Above configuration is minimum and for better performance and usage of the Openstack please consider higher spec for each nodes.

Make sure all servers are connected to top of rack switch and configured accordingly. No DHCP server should be up and configured. Only gateway at eth0 and eth1 network should be configure to access the network outside your lab.

Jump Node configuration:

1. Install Ubuntu 14.04 LTS server version of OS on the nodes. 2. Install the git and bridge-utils packages on the server and configure minimum two bridges on jump host:

brAdm and brPublic cat /etc/network/interfaces

  # The loopback network interface
  auto lo
  iface lo inet loopback
  iface eth0 inet manual
  auto brAdm 
  iface brAdm inet static
      # dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
      bridge_ports eth0
  auto brPublic
  iface brPublic inet static
      bridge_ports eth2

NOTE: If you choose to use the separate network for management, data and storage then you need to create bridge for each interface. In case of VLAN tags use the appropriate network on jump-host depend upon VLAN ID on the interface.

Configure JOID for your lab

Get the joid code from gerritt

git clone


git clone -b stable/brahmaputra

cd joid/ci

Enable MAAS

If you have already enabled maas for your environment and installed it then there is no need to enabled it again or install it. If you have patches from previous MAAS enablement then you can apply it here.

NOTE: If MAAS is pre installed without then please do the following and skip rest of the step to enable MAAS.

    1. Assigned tag "compute" to at least two compute nodes server.
    2. Assgined tag "control" to at least three control nodes server.
    3. copy MAAS API key and paste in ~/.juju/environments.yaml at appropriate place.
    4. Run command cp ~/.juju/environments.yaml ./joid/ci/

If enabling first time then follow it further.

 * Create a directory in maas/<company name>/<pod number>/ for example

mkdir maas/intel/pod7/

  • copy files from pod5 to pod7

cp maas/intel/pod5/* maas/intel/pod7/*

4 files will get copied: deployment.yaml environments.yaml lxc-add-more-interfaces

deployment.yaml file


  1. Make sure Jump host node has been configured with bridges on each interface. So that appropriate MAAS and JUJU bootstrap VM can be created. For example if you have three network admin, data and public then I would suggest to give names like brAdm, brData and brPublic.
  2. You have information about the node MAC address and power management details (IPMI IP, username, password) of the nodes used for control and compute node.

modify deployment.yaml

This file has been used to configure your maas and bootstrap node in a VM. Comments in the file are self explanatory and we expect fill up the information according to match lab infrastructure information. Sample deployment.yaml can be found at;a=blob;f=ci/maas/intel/pod5/deployment.yaml

modify joid/ci/

under section case $3 add the intelpod7 section and make sure you have information provided correctly. Before example consider your network has your default network. and eth1 is on public network which will be used to assign the floating ip.

   'intelpod7' )
      # As per your lab vip address list be deafult uses -
       sed -i -- 's/' ./bundles.yaml
      # Choose the external port to go out from gateway to use.
       sed -i -- 's/#        "ext-port": "eth1"/        "ext-port": "eth1"/g' ./bundles.yaml

NOTE: If you are using seprate data network then add this line below also along with other changes. which represents network will be used for data network for openstack

       sed -i -- 's/#os-data-network:\/21/os-data-network:\/24/g' ./bundles.yaml

modify joid/ci/

under section case $1 add the intelpod7 section and make sure you have information provided correctly.

    'intelpod7' )
      cp maas/intel/pod7/deployment.yaml ./deployment.yaml

NOTE: If you are using VLAN tags or more network for data and storage then make sure you modify the case $1 section under Enable vlan interface with maas appropriately. In the example below eth2 has been used as separate data network for tenants in openstack with network on compute and control nodes.

  'intelpod7' )
      maas refresh
      enableautomodebyname eth2 AUTO "" compute || true
      enableautomodebyname eth2 AUTO "" control || true

Deployment of OPNFV using JOID:

Once you have done the change in above section then run the following commands to do the automatic deployments.

MAAS Install

After integrating the changes as mentioned above run the MAAS install. Suppose you name the integration lab as intelpod7 then run the below commands to start the MAAS deployment.

  ./ intelpod7

OPNFV Install

  ./ -o liberty -s odl -t ha -l intelpod7 -f none

NOTE: Possible options are as follows:

  choose which sdn controller to use.
    [-s <nosdn|odl|opencontrail|onos>]
    nosdn: openvswitch only and no other SDN.
    odl: OpenDayLight Lithium version.
    opencontrail: OpenContrail SDN can be installed with Juno Openstack today.
    onos: ONOS framework as SDN.
    [-t <nonha|ha|tip>] 
    nonha: NO HA mode of Openstack
    ha: HA mode of openstack.
    [-o <juno|liberty>]
    juno: Juno Openstack
    liberty: Liberty version of openstack.
    [-l <default|intelpod5>] etc...
    default: For virtual deployment where installation will be done on KVM created using ./
    intelpod5: Install on bare metal OPNFV pod5 of Intel lab.
    <your pod>: if you make changes as per your pod above then please use that.
    [-f <ipv6|none>]
    none: no special feature will be enabled.
    ipv6: ipv6 will be enabled for tenant in openstack.


By default debug is enabled in script and error messages will be printed on ssh terminal where you are running the scripts.

To access of any control or compute nodes. juju ssh <service name> for example to login into openstack-dashboard container.

  juju ssh openstack-dashboard/0 
  juju ssh nova-compute/0
  juju ssh neutron-gateway/0

By default juju will add the Ubuntu user keys for authentication into the deployed server and only ssh access will be available.
