Fedora 20 (running on Vmware) packstack installation, errors and questions

Hello guys, As the title suggests i am trying to install packstack (openstack-icehouse or juno) on fedora 20 (running on VMWare). The main goal of my project is to create a network with external access where I will be setting up some compute nodes , a load balancer and some alarms in order to create a scaling environment.


The main question I have is whether installing packstack can provide me with these services. I assume that I will be needing neutron, ceilometer, heat and the default services (compute etc.) . Can neutron be set up on a this rig or needs additional nodes as the openstack neutron documentation suggests? Since my fedora VM has a bridged connection with the network, therefore i am assuming that there shouldn't be any implications regarding the virtual environment. Am I on the right track here?


I am new to openstack and my knowledge of fedora is limited. I have also tried Trystack but the ceilometer access is not provided. Thanks!

Select Fedora 21 WKS IceHouse should be just built in native Repos
Support on Fedora 20 might be dropped, I didn't track this

RDO IceHouse packstack multi node installation will handle mentioned tasks:-

1. Neutron by default - You may have Controller&&Network on one node,
                           you may have Controller Node and Network node separated
                           it depends on answer-file directives ( view my comments )
2. Ceilometer
3. Heat

For instance on my system

Thanks a lot for the reply! So i can configure my system to run packstack multinode without having any extra hardware? Do you happen to have any good installation guide?

That's sample for TwoNode RDO Juno set up Controller&&Network and Compute Node
http://lxer.com/module/newswire/view/...
However, it provides answer-file which could be a sample for update

For three node deployment

CONFIG_CONTROLLER_HOST=192.168.1.127
CONFIG_COMPUTE_HOSTS=192.168.1.137
CONFIG_NETWORK_HOSTS=192.168.1.147

Just ignore Gluster backend for cinder set up. You need properly update answer-file for 3 node configuration. Provided set up has been many times ran on Two Node Clusters
