ERROR : Failed handling answer file: Given host does not listen on port 22:

I get the above error on my Centos 7 allinone host when adding the new hyper-v compute node to the packstack questions file. This is a windows 2012 server hyper-v install and doesn't have ssh running on it. Am I missing a configuration change or is something missing on the hyper-v server? Randy

Added my new node and exclude the current Centos 7.0 allinone host.

Hi, Packstack doe not currently support Hyper-V directly.

After deploying RDO, you can simply install the OpenStack components on Hyper-V:

Here's a project that uses Packstack with Hyper-V support:

I've already got the openstack components on my hyper-v server, running and trying to connect to my Centos 7 allinone install. I just can't figure out how to configure the Centos 7 allinone install to use the hyper-v compute node. I can't find any instructions anywhere.

Open firewall for port 5672 on the nova manage box.

You need also to open 9696 (neutron), 9292 (glance) and 3260 (iSCSI)
