Hi, I've been trying to use the "stable" liberty repo in the tripleo docs to build my images for my deployment. But everytime i attempt to build the images, it never seems to build the "ironic" images. I'm trying to build the images from my undercloud:

sudo yum -y install epel-release
sudo curl -L -o /etc/yum.repos.d/delorean-liberty.repo
sudo curl -L -o /etc/yum.repos.d/delorean-deps-liberty.repo
sudo yum -y install yum-plugin-priorities


source /home/stack/stackrc
export NODE_DIST=centos7
export DELOREAN_REPO_FILE="delorean.repo"
export RDO_RELEASE=liberty
openstack overcloud image build --all


[stack@undercloud images]$ openstack overcloud image upload
Required file "/home/stack/images/ironic-python-agent.initramfs" does not exist.
[stack@undercloud images]$

If i point my repo to the latest in the tripleo docs, i can get the images to build, but i get inconsistent deploys. What i mean by that is the image will deploy to the node, but on reboot of the overcloud VM, I get the error "not a correct xfs inode" on the console and its unrecoverable. The odd thing is that if i delete the stack and re-deploy, it might work the second or third time and be fine after the reboot.

My environment is being installed totally in a single node KVM environment. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Using field as comment. Try this way
1.First apply patch


2. cd /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/tripleoclient/ Edit tests/v1/overcloud_image/ and remove rdo-release occurences Edit v1/ and remove lines - env_vars['RDO_RELEASE'] = 'kilo' - 'rdo-release', ( seems to be in patch above )


3. In  /usr/share/tripleo-image-elements/delorean-repo/pre-install.d/01-delorean-repo
Modify the curl line for rhel and centos to:
curl  -o  /etc/yum.repos.d/delorean-deps.repo

4.Use for Delorean environment

export DELOREAN_REPO_FILE="delorean.repo"

There are 2 logs that were produced and no images: "dib-agent-ramdisk.log dib-overcloud-full.log" At the end of the logs: ... File contains no section headers. file: file:///etc/yum.repos.d/centos-cloud-rdo.repo, line: 1 '\ ...
