My first time trying kolla-ansible, I am deploying all-in-one to bare metal on Ubuntu Trusty.

Every one of the bootstrap containers exit with a non 0 return code - however when I look in the docker logs for these - there are no errors in the containers themselves for example: (same thing with all of the _bootstrap containers)

included: /usr/local/share/kolla-ansible/ansible/roles/designate/tasks/bootstrap                                                                                                                               _service.yml for localhost

        "msg": "Container exited with non-zero return code"

also - if I'm not mistaking the return code is in fact '0'

status of my bootstrap_designate for example:

Exited (0) 13 minutes ago

I can work around it by simply kolla-deploy again with the --retry option and it get passed the issue until in meets the next bootstrap_something

kolla-ansible (5.0.1)

docker -v Docker version 1.12.6, build 78d1802

python docker (3.0.1)


Valid options are [ centos, oraclelinux, ubuntu ]

kolla_base_distro: "ubuntu"

Valid options are [ binary, source ]

kolla_install_type: "binary"

Valid option is Docker repository tag

openstack_release: "4.0.0"

what is the output from docker logs bootstrap_designate and logs from /var/lib/docker/volumes/kolla_ansible/_data/designate

I don't know what the answer to this might end up being, however I changed from using kolla-ansilbe as installed by pip package and used github master branch, now the bootstrap containers work as expected.
