How to make crowbar work

April 20, 2017

At SUSE we have a tool called crowbar for deploying OpenStack clouds.

However, sometimes it can run into unexpected states and it is a bit tricky to get out there again. That is why I want to document here how to do that.

crowbar reset_proposal dns
crowbar reset_nodes
for m in `crowbar machines list|grep ^d` ; do
  ssh $m "
    rm -rf /var/chef/cache/pause-file.lock* ; 
    rcchef-client restart"

That’s it.
