Deploy an OS on a Ceph nodeΒΆ


Decapod does not perform bare metal provisioning, OS deployment, and network setup.

The OS must support cloud-init. Also, it must be possible to run your own user data. For the available datasources for cloud-init, see Datasources. Alternatively, you can set user data using the kernel command line. For bare metal provisioning, try MAAS. This section covers the MAAS installation and OS deployment with this tool.


If you do not want or cannot use server discovery, refer to Ansible playbooks to prepare a machine based on generated user data.
