Add Medium Gear Capablity on OpenShift

The OpenShift Virtual Machine download is pre-configured with one node, in one district with a small gear profile. There are two ways to add another gear size
  • add another node, in a new district with medium gears, but easier is it to
  • remove the district restriction and allow both small and medium gears.
Edit the /etc/openshift/plugins.d/openshift-origin-msg-broker-mcollective.conf, and set

Next in edit the /etc/openshift/broker.conf and set

Then restart the node to let the changed take effect. If you have an existing user you may need to add the medium capability explicitly  using something like oo-admin-ctl-user -l demo --addgearsize medium.
