Can Heat and Keystone alone be separately installed

asked 2017-05-09 05:41:12 -0500 gravatar image

Hi, I am a total newbie to Openstack. I want to install two components of Openstack - Heat engine and Keystone on a GNU/Linux virtual machine. Linux vm uname details - 2.6.39-400.264.5.el5uek x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux. I want to use these Openstack components to perform Azure cloud deployments from IBM Udeploy.

My questions are

  1. Is it possible to download media for Heat engine and Keystone (identity service) and install only those two (instead of installing the entire Openstack suite of tools). If yes, where to download media for GNU/Linux ?
  2. Will the linux vm need internet connection to complete the installation of the Heat and Keystone ?

Any input is highly welcome. Thanks in advance.

There's no reason you couldn't install just Heat and Keystone. Heat doesn't have any other hard dependencies in OpenStack. It wouldn't be very useful for most people of course, but maybe you also have access to the IBM plugins for dealing with other clouds.

Hi Zaneb, thanks for the response. Can you please let me know where to download media specific to Heat and Keystone for GNU/Linux. gravatar ( 2017-05-15 05:01:08 -0500 )edit but I'd recommend using packages instead.

Hi Zaneb, I see so many files under the heat directory of the link, you have given. I want to try installing an older stable version. I am just confused if I should select heat-5.0.0.tar.gz or heat-stable-juno.tar.gz. Both seem to be different sizes. Are they for GNU/Linux ? Can you please suggest gravatar ( 2017-05-16 06:16:36 -0500 )edit

heat-5.0.3.tar.gz if you want latest stable/liberty release. heat-2014.2.4.tar.gz for latest stable/juno release. OpenStack runs on Linux. I still recommend using packages from a distribution instead.
