In the install guide for ubuntu 14.04, (

I have several questions which are not clarified int eh documentation.

  1. Do this package configuration necessary for all nodes, or it is only for controller node? At least, I think the following database and message server are just for controller node. So I am confused whether other nodes(compute and network) need the package repository configration as the documentation mentioned.

  2. "# add-apt-repository cloud-archive:juno" is buggy as mentioned in other threads. I am using add-apt-repository pap:ubuntu-cloud-archive/juno-staging as the workgroup. Is there any other good advice for this if I want to install juno for ubuntu 14.04?

  1. You must add the cloud-archive repo to all of your nodes running openstack packages. I would be safe and just and them to all nodes in your evironment servicing Openstack

  2. You must enable the trusty-updates repository. Then you can run the following commands and have them work properly.

# apt-get update && apt-get install -y software-properties-common
# add-apt-repository -y cloud-archive:juno

Thanks for the answer. It work now with adding "#apt-get install -y software-properties-common".

  1. The package configuration is needed for all nodes. This will enable openstack packages to be installed, like keystone, nova etc. All nodes will have at least one package from openstack.
  2. I have used cloud-archive for juno and it works just fine. Is there a particular reason you are using the staging workgroup?

Depending, I tried using cloud-archive:juno on the w/e and it didn't work, maybe you need to add the trusty-updates first then it will work. to be honest there are a lot of gaps in the docs, I had issues with Glance, now i have issues with Nova (services down and not connecting to compute node) :(

Me too. I am now struggling with the so-called famous http500 error issue with glance. Did you also met it?

@Garysday: I'm not sure if adding the trusty-updates and then installing glance with cloud-archive would do any good. And yes, there are a whole lot of gaps in the docs, which calls for people like us to fill em up. Please consider contributing to the docs whenever possible. Thanks.
