Hi All,

I am trying to install OpenStack on a 3 VMs cluster. All 3 VMs are based on CentOS7 in VirtualBox on my desktop (single machine). After pre-configuration was done, I launched the installation with packstack --answer-file=<my answerfile="">. All steps passed at reasonable speed, until it came to "Testing if puppet apply is finished: ...." on the compute node. It seems that it will run forever. Any idea? Many thanks.

Best regards, J

I have faced similar situation where the RAM was insufficient.

Check the RAM size during the installation. Recommended size is 5 to 6GB. Also, check whether the NetworkManager and firewalld is disabled. Or any errors in the logs which will be under /var/tmp/packstack ?

Thank you Raj. I don't have enough physical RAM to allocate to the compute node. I can give only 4GB.The installation doesn't throw any errors, but just hanging there. The NetworkManager and firewalld are disabled.

I have the problem sorted by giving the VMs another network interface as NAT (defined IP range same as the host-only one)
