Description Dan Sneddon 2015-04-09 20:03:41 UTC
Description of problem:
Instack uses a file named deploy-overcloudrc to configure the overcloud. When using the sample deploy-baremetal-overcloudrc it isn't at all clear what the environment variables do. Can we add comments to the sample file to explain what things like "NETWORK_CIDR" represent?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
instack-undercloud.noarch      2.0.0-dev1584.g9dbaa26.el7.centos

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install instack-undercloud
2. Try to set up deploy-overcloudrc
3. Get confused, ask for help, find that nobody on IRC seems to know what NETWORK_CIDR is either.

Actual results:
No documentation in sample file

Expected results:
Environment variables should have descriptive text, like instack.answers has.

Comment 8 Omri Hochman 2015-07-09 18:46:11 UTC
Verified  :

We switched to use unified-cli command for overcloud deployed, 
Comments over the --arguments should be covered in the --help of the uni-cli and track in this BZ :
