On a clean centos 7 OS, I've turned off NetworkManager, firewalld and turned on network & iptables. I've set SELINUX to permissive

Still, I can't get packstack --allinone to install. It fails:

ERROR : Error appeared during Puppet run: Error: Could not start Service[rabbitmq-server]: Execution of '/usr/bin/systemctl start rabbitmq-server' returned 1: Job for rabbitmq-server.service failed. See 'systemctl status rabbitmq-server.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.

This used to work fine, what am I missing?

Found it! It was a hostname issue. My hostname was Control.localdomain, same in /etc/hostname and /etc/hosts. I changed the hostname to Control (remomed the local domain part), did the same in /etc/hosts and now it works...

Until the next problem.

Hi Alain, I faced a similar problem, but after I edited /etc/hosts it didn't solve the issue, what worked for me was apart from adding cloud02 to /ettc/hosts, I also edited /etc/hostname which contained a DHCP-assigned hostname, then install went OK. I don't know if it's got something to do with tha

Hey Alain! Thanks your answer worked for me. But if you look at the RDO doc, under the prereq section, it mentions otherwise FYI,Please name the host with a fully qualified domain name rather than a short-form name to avoid DNS issues with Packstack.

when you guys say "edited" what did you edit the files with as far as what contents/cmds/variables did you put in there.

These solutions are vague.
