Description of problem:
CEE *cannot* support reference architectures if ansible hosts file is not saved on disk for maintenance activities to be run post install
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Currently, hosts files are saved in-memory. However, when the hosts file is required for maintenance -- scaleup, certificate redeploy, and other playbooks, this is not possible or at least not documented. If an issue arises that requires running playbooks, there is *no* documented way to do so.
PR is in place
PR has been merged and the directions to generate the static inventory are defined in the Reference Architecture document and on github https://github.com/openshift/openshift-ansible-contrib/tree/master/reference-architecture/gce-ansible#creating-a-static-inventory
I feel like this should be closed as GCE and AWS both now have the ability to generate static inventory files.
@scollier do you have the ability to change status on this?
Talked to Ryan and this one has been fixed.
