I'm trying to setup HA installation of OpenStack using Packstack. I have 3 servers for controllers and I've already installed HA RabbitMQ and MySQL on them. In Packstack answers file there is an option to disable MySQL installation, but I don't see option to disable QPID installation. Instead, I must fill in QPID host address. I could try to install OpenStack without specifying host address, but as far as I understand this option will be used for configuring OpenStack itself, not just for installing QPID, so I should not ignore it.

Is there a way to avoid installing QPID and use another messaging service, which was installed before?

The question from me. I also want my OpenStack Cluster deployed by RDO to use rabbit, instead of Qpid.

By default CentOS uses qpid and acquire the 5672 port.To use rabbitmq first install rabbitmq-server then kill the qpid service

ps -ef | grep qpid
kill -9 <service id>

And set the following flags in the respective conf files

Thanks, but the question was how to avoid installing Qpid, not how to configure Openstack after everything is installed. I guess, there is no such option, so Packstack will install Qpid anyway and I need to disable it manually.
