Cinder-api system requirement

asked 2013-03-18 17:10:08 -0500

I am trying to install a standalone cinder-api on a system and attach it to an existing openstack cluster. The question is that does the system have to be 64 bit? Since I am having a few 32 bit machines lying around, and I wonder if I can turn them into cinder storage.

Well, the problem that I had was that the cinder packages could not be found available to install on the 32-bit system. but, swift and nova-volume are okay to be found available to install. It was tried on the Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit.

There is no reason I can see that the system needs to be 64 bit. Let us know how you get on!

They are simple python packages, so you should be able to pull down the source and rebuild them fairly easily. I'm not sure if there are any PPAs out there that have done this work for you - I've not really looked in detail at exactly what ubuntu do and don't package.
