I am trying to set up Ironic using the Direct Deploy interface without using swift. When I try and deploy a machine the deploy fails with error: "Failed to prepare to deploy. Exception: An auth plugin is required to determine endpoint URL". I have my environment script file set up with an OS_AUTH_URL that works for everything else. What auth plugin is this error referring to, or is there something else I am missing?

Thanks for the help. P.S. I am super new to OpenStack and IT in general. I am a first year in school working an internship with openstack.

The error message is generated when deployment to an Ironic node fails, at this code line. The failing subroutine is _store_configdrive.

It seems that _store_configdrive will always try to use Swift if Ironic’s config parameter configdrive_use_object_store is set. Unset it and try again.

EDIT: I might be wrong. There are two places where this error can be generated. You should see another message - either "Error while preparing to deploy" or "Unexpected error while preparing to deploy". If you have that message, which is it?

It it's the second one, I suspect you misconfigured Keystone in the ironic.conf file.

the error is "Unexpected error while preparing to deploy to node d5639a4e-63b7-4505-83b0-7bbd4bb102cd: MissingAuthPlugin: An auth plugin is required to determine endpoint URL". I am pretty sure keystone_authtoken section of ironic.conf is configured properly as well
