I'm trying to deploy Kolla in AIO.
I build images using the command: kolla-build -p default -b ubuntu -t binary
I am deploying it in my local system. I'm using ubuntu 16.04, built images. I'm not using a local registry.

kolla-ansible precheck runs fine

kolla-ansible deploy gives me an error while starting rabbitmq
My host name is DESKTOP
The output of hosts file
cat /etc/hosts localhost DESKTOP

::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters

The error is as follows
TASK: [rabbitmq | fail msg="Hostname has to resolve to IP address of api_interface"] * failed: [localhost] => (item={u'cmd': [u'getent', u'ahostsv4', u'DESKTOP'], u'end': u'2017-02-26 00:45:10.399323', u'stderr': u'', u'stdout': u' STREAM DESKTOP\n127.0.1.1 DGRAM \n127.0.1.1 RAW ', u'changed': False, u'rc': 0, 'item': 'localhost', u'warnings': [], u'delta': u'0:00:00.001585', 'invocation': {'module_name': u'command', 'module_complex_args': {}, 'module_args': u'getent ahostsv4 DESKTOP'}, 'stdout_lines': [u' STREAM DESKTOP', u' DGRAM ', u' RAW '], u'start': u'2017-02-26 00:45:10.397738'}) => {"failed": true, "item": {"changed": false, "cmd": ["getent", "ahostsv4", "DESKTOP"], "delta": "0:00:00.001585", "end": "2017-02-26 00:45:10.399323", "invocation": {"module_args": "getent ahostsv4 DESKTOP", "module_complex_args": {}, "module_name": "command"}, "item": "localhost", "rc": 0, "start": "2017-02-26 00:45:10.397738", "stderr": "", "stdout": " STREAM DESKTOP\n127.0.1.1 DGRAM \n127.0.1.1 RAW ", "stdout_lines": [" STREAM DESKTOP", " DGRAM ", " RAW "], "warnings": []}} msg: Hostname has to resolve to IP address of api_interface

I'm seeing a typo in /etc/hosts, is using instead of Also, hostname expects to be resolvable from the IP of network_interface variable.

Never point your hostname at thats basic linux mistake. Point to addr on your interface.

I don't seem to get your answer. Linux by deafult maps to localhost. ?

And what should I change here? How to point address on the interface?

Add in /etc/hosts.

YOUR_IP hostname
