I am a novice user and would greatly appreciate if anybody can answer with my two questions:

1) I have installed Openstack using Devstack on single machine and it seems to work fine when script finishes However, after a server reboot, dashboard cannot retrieve info about usage, images, instances etc. Some suggest running But is there another solution so that dashboard can run properly after every reboot without this workaround.

2) When an instance is launched, can we make it use hard disk for persistent storage, rather can creating everything in RAM. Perhaps, we need block storage for this purpose. But how do we do that ?

Thanking you in anticipation.

Best regards,

Hamid Sultan

For point 1, do you have DHCP in the machine where you installed Devstack ?

Hi herrsergio,

Thank for your reply. No, I have disabled DHCP in my /etc/network/interfaces. I have a static IP address.

I would appreciate your help.

Thanks regards, Hamid Sultan

Devstack starts daemons for you, not configuring any services
To stop Devstack instance I have to issue

# cd dev*
# sudo ./

When you boot OS again you are supposed to take care of restarting Openstack daemons
Via placing a kind of

ip addr flush dev br-ex
ip addr add dev br-ex
ip link set br-ex up
route add -net gw

in /etc/rc.local and

# cd dev*
# ./

  1. even you reboot the machine all the openstack services are going to stop, you need to run again.
  2. for block storage part, since you are having all in one devstack installation, if you have installed your base OS in LVM one of the logical disk you can make as cinder and present it to OS

Hi lakshman,

Thank you for your message..

For part 1, do you think would also solve the problem completely. In fact, I tried it. All services get restarted except cinder. Please help. . For part 2, based on your reply, I feel I solved the block storage problem.

Thanks Hamid
