2015-08-10 10:18:41 -0500 asked a question CentOS 7.1 Instance does not mount writeable drive

Hello,

I'm trying to create a CentOS 7.1 instance using OpenStack. When I create the instance from the image, I select "Boot from Image (crates a new volume). My goal is to create a new 10GB Virtual Drive for this instance to boot.

My issue is that the instance boots, but the "vda" drive that is created, gets mounted as a 10GB ISO9660 device, which I cannot modify or partition during the initial install.

Any ideas? I've tried creating a separate volume for this instance, but every attempt fails.

2015-08-06 10:27:05 -0500 asked a question VNC setup issues connecting to console

Hello all, I've just installed two servers. One All-in-one (AIO) Packstack distribution, running on CentOS 7. I have later added a compute node to this configuration. I am having issues opening the console for the instances that I create on both server, and I'm unsure of the configuration settings for /etc/nova/nova.conf, with respect to VNC. I need assistance understanding what should be the correct configuration of nova.conf for vnc connectivity. I haven't been able to consistenly open the Console for the instances I create. My setup is the following:

Controller/Network/Compute (All-in-one) Host 1

IP Address: 10.200.127.17

Compute Host 2

IP Address: 10.200.127.16

What should be the setup for /etc/nova/nova.conf on each host? I'm mainly interested in understanding the defition of the following values:

novncproxy_host=0.0.0.0

novncproxy_port=6080

novncproxy_base_url=http://0.0.0.0:6080/vnc_auto.html

#

#

vnc_enabled=True

novncproxy_base_url=http://0.0.0.0:6080/vnc_auto.html

vncserver_listen=0.0.0.0

vncserver_proxyclient_address=0.0.0.0

2015-07-29 09:49:30 -0500 asked a question openstack-keystone yum install

All,

I'm attempting an openstack installation on a base CentOS 6.5. Upon the initial yum upgrade, the kernel has since been updated to version 6.6 of CentOS. I have initialized the installation of keystone, with the following results. I read in some website that installion Python 2.7 would break yum on CentOS, which relies on 2.6.6. In any case, I need to figure out if continuing to install Openstack on CentOS 6.6 would even make any more sense at this point in time due to the number of issues that I keep running into, and the fact that I may need to consider CentOS 7 from the get go. Here's my latest attempt (I've truncated the results in the interest of space, but there are several Error lines showing dependency issues):

[root@controller ~]# yum install openstack-keystone

. . .

           python-six = 1.7.3-1.el6.centos

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem

You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

All,

I'm unable to run the following yum upgrade. I'm running CentOS 6.5, and attempting to install OpenStack. I get the following error:

[root@controller ~]# yum upgrade

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Determining fastest mirrors . . .

2015-07-29 08:16:07 -0500 answered a question centos 6.5 yum upgrade

I figured out what the problem was. The RDO repository's URL was malformed. I needed to point the URL directly to the version of Fedora that I intended to upgrade (for CentOS 6.6). I made the change as follows:

From: http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/openstack/openstack-kilo/%25FDIST%25%25RELEASEVER%25/repodata/repomd.xml (http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/o...)

To: https://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/openstack/openstack-kilo/f22 (https://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/...)

This solved the issue.

While running the initial "yum upgrade" using centos 6.5, I get the following error:

I have switched to a direct connection to the internet (no proxy required), but the behavior remains the same. Anyone else running into this issue?

I've only installed the following pacakges on this fresh (minimal) centos 6.5 installation:

epel-release-6-8.noarch

rdo-release-kilo
