As in the title, I am looking for the quickest method for deploying open stack in a multi-node setup. I have 5 servers: a 1U rackmount that I want to be a controller and a compute node, 4 blade servers that I want to be just compute nodes, a consumer grade gigabit router (Cisco E2000), a 5-port gigabit switch, a 10/100 8-port switch, and an infiniband switch (every box has an infiniband card). Every box has 2 ethernet ports as well. I have tried manual install (too confusing to follow), devstack (github packages blocked by corporate firewall), RDO (multi-node failed and single-node couldn't start instances), Rackspace private-cloud (too few server for deployment), and Ubuntu private cloud (minimum number of nodes is 10 :/).

I am not as familiar with other distributions and packages such as RDO. However, as a Rackspace employee, I know that our chef scripts should allow you to install the configuration you proposed. What problems did you run into?

The problems that I had was that the clients couldn't download the cookbooks. And the fact that I would need a 6th machine to act as a chef server.
