Opensuse openstack-nova-compute package

Hi All ,

I run a fully operational Centos 7 Mitaka Openstack Environment and I would like to include a opensuse based compute node on it . I got a error when I tried connect the opensuse compute server into . I figured out that Centos 7 are running nova version 13.0.0 and Opensuse packages are version 13.1.1 . Could be that the problem ? Is there any repository that I could install the 13.0.0 nova-compute packages ?

Thanks in advanced ,

Saulo Augusto Silva

I wouldn't expect this to work if you are using the OpenStack packages provided by two different distros, potentially even if you manage to align the version numbers of the packages. The reason being that different distributions carry different levels of backports which more often than not result in differences in the RPC communication between nodes leaving them unable to communicate.

Solutions that combine compute nodes of multiple operating systems do this by packaging their OpenStack pieces and injecting them into the host rather than using that operating systems default OpenStack distro.
