Primary Cluster

Support setup for creating a nomad and consul cluster on base hardware.

Task files


The following assumptions apply:

  • Noamd is already installed and configured machines. (Recommended:

  • The core cluster nodes have their meta data set to: cluster_type = { whatever crclstr_group is set to.}

  • The podman driver for nomad is already installed into nomad.

  • Containers come up on the ipv4 network. (The default for podman and docker.)

Main performs the following:

  • Sets the hosts files on the core cluster so they can function independent of DNS.

  • Opens up the firewall

  • Set up gluster and its volumes on the core cluster.

  • Set up podman so it can be used by nomad.

  • Starts a job that gives nomad a place to access artifacts locally. (This is a web service on port 8000.)

  • If crclstr_returning_servers is used, it will setup gluster, and return the node to the cluster. The above assumptions still apply.


This is to be used to take a client out of the cluster. This way the client could be rebuilt or replaced without damaging the cluster as a whole.

Maintenance performs the following functions:

  • It drains the node from nomad. (Stops all running jobs and moves them to other nomad clients.)

  • Removes the node from the gluster configuration.

Role Variables

crclstr_vols_add: List of additional volume names for containers. Default: []

crclstr_datacenters: List of datacenters used. Default: ['dc1']

crclstr_maintenance_servers: List of servers being removed for maintenance. Default: []

crclstr_returning_servers: List of servers returning from maintenance. Default: []

crclstr_jobs_add: List of additional jobs sent to the nomad HTTP API. (Look at the default crclstr_jobs_req for an example.) Default []
