I'm trying to install TripleO QuickStart on CentOS 7 but it failed at the "Install the undercloud". The error is:

Do you know what is going wrong ?

To support you I need details ( step by step ) VIRTHOST and WKS set up procedure. Quickstart starting CMD.

Here are the details:

"provided hosts list is empty, only localhost is available" seems to be core issue.
Once again see correct VIRTHOST and Workstation (f24/25) set up. It was not done as required.
Tripleoi QS won't start properly.

VIRTHOST is just one host, it's a simple install of CentOS 7.

Workstation is also CentOS 7.

I simply installed 2 CentOS, one on VIRTHOST having 60GB memory and 250GB disk with 10 cores, the other one for workstation.

commands executed on workstation are:

UPDATE 05/05/17
Per your pastebin text

ssh-copy-id root@
ssh root@$VIRTHOST uname -a
git clone
cd tripleo-quickstart
bash --install-deps

Where you copy ssh-key ? to . Your VIRTHOST has different IP
Does ssh root@$VIRTHOST uname -a work with no root password requested ?

Using field as comment now.
Recently standard starting deploying rules have been updated
Please be aware of
TripleO QuickStart Ocata branch Deployment with feature sets and nodes configuration (topology) separated
VIRTHOST should have 32 GB and 4 CORE CPU at least.
Regarding initial VIRTHOST and WKS set up* <=== problem is here.
Both blogs were written a while ago, **so ignore suggested CMD in posts above
follow updated rules from my the most recent posting,mentioned the first.
Doing TripleO QS deploying Ocata branch you might easily fail with 32 GB VIRTHOST or deployed non-functional
overcloud. In case Ocata release I suggest 48 GB and 8 CORE CPU on VIRTHOST
SHORTAGE of RAM on VIRTHOST (top monitoring) might have unpredictable consequences for TripleO QS.
During overcloud deployment itself or report success and build overcloud topology having issues like disability create cinder volume on ceph nodes or whatever.

yes it works without root password requested.

also, I tried twice with 2 different host (one with 32GB memory, the other 60GB memory) hence my bad copy/paste with 2 different IPs in pastebin but good IP was used for deployment

when I do "virsh list" on VIRTHOST I get

1 undercloud running
