I'm trying to install OpenStack Havana using Packstack. I have Percona XtraDB Cluster installed and configured, so I don't need Packstack to install MySQL. In answers file I set option CONFIG_MYSQL_INSTALL=n

I set CONFIG_MYSQL_HOST, CONFIG_MYSQL_USER and CONFIG_MYSQL_PW to point to my current MySQL Cluster install.

I got the following error messages when I try to launch Packstack:

                                                                                   [ ERROR ]

ERROR : Error appeared during Puppet run:
Error: Execution of '/usr/bin/yum -d 0 -e 0 -y install mysql' returned 1: Error: mysql conflicts with 1:Percona-XtraDB-Cluster-client-5.5.34-
You will find full trace in log /var/tmp/packstack/20131201-150252-SupDy6/manifests/

Packstack tries to install MySQL, although I set the option no to do this. Anyone know how to fix it?

Ok, I had to dig into this problem myself and I found the reason.

As I said, I was going to use preinstalled Percona XtraDB Cluster as DB backend for OpenStack. The problem is that bundled Puppet manifest does not support this product yet.

Packstack bundled Puppet manifest for MySQL can be found here: /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/packstack/puppet/templates/mysql_noinstall.pp. This manifest is used when you disable MySQL installation in your answer file (like in my case). When using this manifest Puppet tries just to make sure, that package mysql has really been installed. It uses the following command to get a list of installed RPMs:

/bin/rpm -qa --nosignature --nodigest --qf '%{NAME} %|EPOCH?{%{EPOCH}}:{0}| %{VERSION} %{RELEASE} %{ARCH} :DESC: %{SUMMARY}\n'

Then Puppet searches for 'mysql' and 'mysql-client' RPMs, but they could not be found. Percona uses 'Percona-XtraDB-Cluster-server' and 'Percona-XtraDB-Cluster-client' as RPM names, that's why Puppet cannot find MySQL and tries to install despite the fact, that I set CONFIG_MYSQL_INSTALL=n. Of course, during MySQL installation process yum shows 'conflict' error and installation stops.

The problem was that I'm not familiar with Puppet, so I didn't know which files to edit. I tried to edit /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/packstack/puppet/modules/mysql/manifests/params.pp and set Percona RPM names there, but it didn't help.

Finnaly, in file /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/packstack/puppet/templates/mysql_noinstall.pp I just set

ensure => absent

and it finally worked. This is definitely not the best solution, but it worked for me and probably will save your time if you face the same problem.

Also if you are reading this and you can make changes in Puppet manifests for Packstack in order to support Percona - please do this.
