The following is a non-exhaustive list of current known limitations of Tenks:

  • When using the Libvirt provider (currently the only provider), Tenks hypervisors cannot co-exist with a containerised Libvirt daemon (for example, as deployed by Kolla in the nova-libvirt container). Tenks will configure an uncontainerised Libvirt daemon instance on the hypervisor, and this may conflict with an existing containerised daemon. A workaround is to disable the Nova virtualised compute service on each Tenks hypervisor if it is present (for example, docker stop nova_libvirt) before running Tenks.
