I'm a fresher to openstack . I followed the Quick Start step by step, but after packstack --allinone was done, I found my server couldn't connect to network and the light on Ethernet card went off. (server:IBM system x3650 m4) I also found checking if the Cinder server has a cinder-volumes vg.. took a long time.I didn't create space for Cinder server,because someone says it is not necessary. Could anyone help me ? Thanks in advance !

Not sure what could be exact issue , however below are elaborated tried and tested steps to install RDO -

Setup Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 ( no need to create partition for cinder).

After installation:

# service NetworkManager stop
# chkconfig NetworkManager off

# vi /etc/selinux/config
# set SELINUX=disabled

Enable optional Repos for Linux

To do that using RHN Classic follow the below steps

  1. Log into the Customer Portal at (as a user with Organization Administrator privileges).
  2. On the Subscriptions main menu tab, select Registered Systems under Classic Management.
  3. Choose the relevant system in the system list.
  4. Click on Alter Channel Subscriptions.
  5. Select the RHEL Server Optional (v. 6 64-bit x86_64)
  6. Click the Change Subscriptions button at the bottom of the page.


# yum clean all
# yum makecache

Software repositories

# yum install -y

Install the latest epel-release package

# yum install

Install Packstack Installer

# yum install -y openstack-packstack

Run Packstack to install OpenStack

Packstack takes the work out of manually setting up OpenStack. For a single node OpenStack deployment, run the following command.

# packstack --allinone

Make sure hardware virtualization is enabled ( in BIOS) on the machine on which you are doing the installation.
