I been trying out openstack installation on RHEL 6.x currently.

Have installed identity service , image service so far as per the installation guide.

Its been going good till compute service. I have 2 issues (I feel so) now.

While verifying the nova installation , I get the below output for nova-manage version

 [root@OS7012 nova]# nova-manage version
 2012.2.4 (2012.2.4-1.el6)

Openstack documentation states expected output is "2013.1"

Moreover nova-manage service list , output is not so good too.

[root@OS7012 nova ]# nova-manage service list
Binary           Host                           Zone             Status     State Updated_At
nova-cert        OS7012.lab.com                 nova             enabled    XXX   None
nova-scheduler   OS7012.lab.com                 nova             enabled    XXX   None
nova-compute     OS7012.lab.com                 nova             enabled    XXX   None
nova-network     OS7012.lab.com                 nova             enabled    XXX   None
[root@OS7012 nova]#  yum install openstack-nova 

 Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 Setting up Install Process
 Package openstack-nova-2012.2.4-1.el6.noarch already installed and latest version
 Nothing to do
 [root@OS7012 nova]

Do you guys feel whether my yum is not configured to correct repository or my RHEL is not a supported version or something else is causing the problem? Your help is highly appreciated.

yum repository is not configured properly. Solution for this is to place this file in your /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory

[epel-openstack-grizzly]
name=OpenStack Grizzly Repository for EPEL 6
baseurl=http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/openstack/openstack-grizzly/epel-6
enabled=1
skip_if_unavailable=1
gpgcheck=0
priority=98

this will enable to update all openstack components. This is also mentioned in Installation Assumptions section.

Yep, to be explicit the user asking the question likely has EPEL enabled, but not RDO. EPEL contains the Folsom packages that pre-date the RDO effort. Users need both repositories enabled (the RDO openstack packages will take priority, but need other bits from EPEL).
