kolla-ansible pull error

asked 2017-07-24 15:24:16 -0600

Hello, I'm trying to get started with kolla-ansible and following the directions in the 'Quick Start'. I'm to the point where I'm instructed to do:

$ kolla-ansible pull

  1. I assume that I should not use the -i << inventory file >> on this command.
  2. When I do this I get the error below.

Could you help me debug, please :)

Thank you!

Hi Mark,

For kolla-ansible pull inventory is required.

This command will pull/download docker images in remote nodes (where OpenStack is going to be deployed) and requires inventory file to know on which hosts download images.

If an inventory file is not provided by default will use all-in-one inventory pointing to localhost.

Thanks much for replying. Should somehow request the documentation be updated so the inventory file is included on the kolla-ansible pull command?

When I did the command with the inventory file, I got a different error. I'll get the logs if I can't figure that out. Thanks again for the reply!
