Hello everyone!

I want to tell about my experience with implementation and installation in test environment. I have an notebook Lenovo Thinkpad T420s and an OS Debian 8 installed on it. I have used a VMware Workstaion Player 12 to test OpenStack in virtual machines. Inside virtual machines I have used an OS Ubuntu 14.04. OpenStack Liberty. I have successfully installed two core components of OpenStack: Controller (Keystone, Glance, Nova part) and Compute (nova-compute) due manual installation. But when I tried to install a third node - a block storage (Cinder) - I had received an error message in logs: Endpoint does not support RPC version 1.24. This is a point where I am stuck.

But this is a only one particular case from big number of such cases. And in this forum I can see a huge amount of such questions - about 16000. I think that is abnormally. I want to figure out where the problem is? Why such good idea has so many problems in implementations in many people and enthusiasts? Main question: does anybody whenever had an successfull implementation or installation of core OpenStack: Controller, Compute, Block Storage? Or OpenStack is a raw software-constructor and even a development team doesn't know - is it working or not?

I am running two OpenStack Liberty deployments on Ubuntu 14.04: One in a fully virtualized environment based on vSphere 5.5, the other is a HA deployment based on physical machines and an NFS shared storage. I had a lot of trouble getting things working, but both installations make a good job so far. We are planning to use Tempest for validation, hopefully we get the suite running.

The most critical remaining issue is this:

The problem has been fixed, but not released until now.

Don't give up! Post your problems and the community will help you. Without more details, I can only give you the confidence that Liberty is definitely working.

It is a good news for me. Do you know is there any possibility to launch a virtual instance without cinder volumes? I'm stuck with cinder and I want to try to place a VM to local disk of a hypervisor host. But in official documentation doesn't tell about this scenario.

But without a volumes at all there is an error "the is not host" on trying to launch instance. So I need volume for VMs.

I have a production installation of Openstack Liberty running in a multi-node environment. Even the basic setup in official documentation should work out of the box if you follow it.

Well, it doesn't. I tried to do it several times already and I'm stuck with cinder.

Wich volumes configuration do you use? With a cinder node?
