Description Chris Janiszewski 2020-02-20 18:50:15 UTC
Description of problem:
Overcloud deployment fails with time-out when using mix of VM and BM nodes for overcloud

Deploying overcloud configuration
Enabling ssh admin (tripleo-admin) for hosts:
Using ssh user heat-admin for initial connection.
Using ssh key at /home/stack/.ssh/id_rsa for initial connection.
Inserting TripleO short term key for
Warning: Permanently added '' (ECDSA) to the list of known hosts.
Removing short term keys locally
Timed out waiting for port 22 from

In the output above 1 node succeeds and it's followed by the error/timeout on the remaining 3 nodes. The 1 node that succeeded is a VM and the 3 that failed are Baremetal nodes.
The Baremetal nodes are Supermicro that have relatively quick bootup time.
In about 1 minute after the time-out occurs these supermicro nodes are accessible via ssh

The second consecutive deploy (without any changes completes successfully).

The timeout period should be increased for a Baremetal nodes.
I am not sure if the problem occurs if only BM nodes are being used, I only tested a mix of VM and BM

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Deploy OSP16 on a mix of VMs and BM nodes
2. The first deployment times out
3. The second consecutive deployment (update) succeeds even with no changes to the configuration

Actual results:

Expected results:
The time for enabling ssh admin should be increased

Comment 1 Alex Schultz 2020-02-20 22:18:27 UTC
The following option can be used to tune this timeout:

  --overcloud-ssh-port-timeout OVERCLOUD_SSH_PORT_TIMEOUT
                        Timeout for to wait for the ssh port to become active.

Comment 2 Chris Janiszewski 2020-02-21 15:00:52 UTC
Thanks for the update. I am glad we have that option. It's probably safe to assume that if I hit this on the relatively quick to boot supermicro boards, our customers will also hit it on more traditional and slower OEM servers. I would say it's not uncommon for the traditional servers that could take ~15 minutes or more to boot. I would highly recommend changing the default to something higher.

Comment 3 Alex Schultz 2020-02-21 15:34:34 UTC
I want to say we already did raise it to 10 mins, but i'll have to check.

Comment 4 Alex Schultz 2020-02-21 15:37:24 UTC
https://review.opendev.org/#/c/620754/ so there are two values but we did raise one to 10 mins.  Usually we don't get to ssh enable process until several minutes after the systems should already be up/deployed so I'm not sure what specifically happened in this scenario. In our testing it's usually like 10+ minutes before the ssh enable process runs after the nodes should already be up.

Comment 5 Chris Janiszewski 2020-02-21 16:43:39 UTC
The one thing that might be different is my environment has a mix of VM and BM. The VM restarts in a matter of seconds where the BM nodes are typically about 5 minutes to boot. Does the timer gets reset after the first node comes up or anything along those lines ?

Comment 6 Alex Schultz 2020-02-21 17:45:50 UTC
No it's once it reaches the point where it needs to try and do the ssh key bits. The overall timeouts are global to the entire environment.

Comment 7 Chris Janiszewski 2020-02-25 20:36:12 UTC
adding   --overcloud-ssh-port-timeout 600 \ to my deployment script has fixed this problem for me .. again I have a relatively fast posting hardware .. please consider changing the defaults .. in any case I'd like to leave this BZ as the artifact for others who hit the issue.
