OpenShift on Slicie

Which features are supported?

All of Slicie's features are supported on Slicie, and you can use all of OpenShift's features on Slicie.

Reserving an IPv4 Address

Your OpenShift will require DNS records that are configured in advance. We do not provide DNS services directly, so you'll need to able to do that with another service.

Within our portal, you can add IP addresses to your account. Create the following DNS records that point to your IP address.

  • app.[Your Cluster Name] -> Your Slicie IP
  • *.apps.[Your Cluster Name] -> Your Slicie IP
  • app-int.[Your Cluster Name] -> Your Slicie IP

Using Redhat's Assisted Installer

Use the Assisted Installer to setup your OpenShift Cluster.

The Assisted Installer is required. Use the information below as a reference for how to fill it out.

1. Cluster details

  • CPU architecture: x86_64
  • Install single node OpenShift (SNO): optional
    You can use SNO if you prefer.
  • Integrate with external partner platforms: No platform integration
    We do this automatically.
  • Hosts' network configuration: DHCP only
    DHCP integrates with our interface automatically.
  • Encryption of installation disks: optional
    This will be less efficient for storage space with encryption.

2. Operators

    OpenShift does not have any custom integration with Slicie.
  • Install multicluster engine: optional
  • Install Logical Volume Manager Storage: optional

3. Host discovery

Click "Add host"

Full image file is always faster than the minimal image file. iPXE won't work at all.

Full image file - Download a self-contained ISO
Minimal image file - Download an ISO that fetches content on boot
iPXE - Provision from your network
  • SSH public key: this is your public key.
  • Show proxy settings: unchecked
  • Configure cluster-wide trusted certificates: optional

Adding the ISO to your Slicie Account

You can add ISOs to your account and created Cloud Servers with them easily on Slicie.

  • You can add ISOs to your account when creating a server by clicking the tab titled "ISOs".
  • After adding the ISO to your account, create a server and choose the ISO tab. You can now select the ISO and deploy your server.
  • Unique to the ISO option, you also pick the size of your Cloud Server's drive.
  • Pick the IP address that you were assigned earlier in this guide.

After creating your server

Simply boot your server, and it will be automatically added to your OpenShift cluster. You can reuse the ISO for future servers in the same cluster without adding them again.
