2019-06-04 15:15:38 -0600 asked a question Any way to tag hypervisors?

Wondering if there is a way to tag hypervisors with some data/strings that I could then access through an API/CLI call like "openstack hypervisor show <host>". I'd like to be able to get some extra data returned that is not there by default.

Does anyone ever find a solution around here?

Where in that document is there an option to add an image via a URL?

2017-06-21 21:52:45 -0600 answered a question how does one import an image using the CLI for an image in an HTTP location

Well, after some more searching, I found this command works:

glance --os-image-api-version 1 image-create --location <some url="" here=""> --is-public true --disk-format qcow2 --container-format bare --name WTF-how-come-this-is-so-difficult

So using the older API version works. Why is this not available in the latest openstack CLI or even glance CLI? ANyone know?

I think it's doing exactly what I want, not storing an image locally on my filesystem. I don't want to store daily builds of a large image locally, when I already have it in a location accessible by http like I do.

2017-06-21 21:13:09 -0600 asked a question how does one import an image using the CLI for an image in an HTTP location

Why is openstack so difficult to find info on!!! Ergh.

From the UI (horizon) I can create an image to use, and NOT store it locally. This is perfect since my cloud has limited storage at this point. So I can specify a URL, and bam, I have a bootable image. How is this done in the CLI? both 'glance image-create' and openstack image create seem to have no option other than a local file. Am I missing something? Is this possible? Thanks!

2017-03-03 13:02:23 -0600 answered a question Devstack install works, then network dies after some time

Well, in my situation, I was using some range of IP's in my local.conf that for some reason didn't agree with my network. So I reduced the floating range to just a small portion of my subnet like this and now it's stable for a couple days already:

Enable Neutron

ENABLED_SERVICES+=,q-svc,q-dhcp,q-meta,q-agt,q-l3

Neutron options

2017-02-28 13:55:40 -0600 asked a question Devstack install works, then network dies after some time

I am able to get a master build of devstack to work (on Ubuntu 16) just fine, using Neutron networking as well.

The problem is it dies after some seemingly random amount of time. Meaning, I cannot ssh into the system, access the dahsboard etc. It's a VM, and I can open the console, and I can even ping/ssh OUT of the box, just not into it.

Anyone ever see this? Yesterday I had it running for a couple hours once. Today the same thing, after I reverted the snapshot and ran trhough the whole stack.sh again. But then it just becomes unresponsive later....

I tried "screen -r" and restarting various services, nothing works.

Strange...anyone see this behavior before and know how to get around it?

*EDIT:

I see from the console that the default route is gone? I tried to add it back, still nothing.

Before it fails:

Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface

After a while the default route is gone:

Ran out of space....I'll continue to try with devstack, using neutron enabled option as well.

YEah, I have found all of those already. It's not as simple as just enabling it apparently. I have been trying for some time today to get a devstack going with SSL=True to no avail (unrelated failures I guess, devstack is always tricky for me for some reason) Thanks for the reply. I

2017-02-24 15:18:48 -0600 asked a question How to enable https for keystone endpoints?

I see lots of questions on this, but no solid answers I can find.

I would like to use https, not http, for the keystone/identity endpoints (at least the public one). How is this done, anyone know? For Mitaka, Newton, or whatever release coming up. I can set up a devstack to test it with, but I find this question a bit hard to answer anywhere....any help out there? Thanks!

Thanks for the awesome response! I will look more there....However (my bad for not being more specific!) how would I know as a user in a tenant, what my permissions are, without having to say, ask a cloud admin? Can I list my own permissions?

Thanks, yeah, I did see that. I just don't understand why the behavior is different in the 2 seperate clouds we have.

2015-11-13 11:49:40 -0600 asked a question how do I know what permissions I have in my tenant?

How do I, as a non-admin user, list my permissions I have in my own tenant?

2015-11-11 17:45:48 -0600 asked a question Create a volume from image, the volume_image_metadata does not get copied?

We have an image which requires certain metadata in order to boot, like the hw_disk_bus and hw_vif_model. We can boot from this image fine.

The image has properties we set, we can clearly see them in the image-show output. But when we create a volume from this image, these properties are missing in the volume:

The property volume_image_metadata does not contain the same as the image.

This works in one of our cloud deployments, but not the other, both running Icehouse.

And apparently you cannot modify this property of the volume to include it.

Any ideas?

Man, spent a lot of time trying to figure this out. This worked in my setup, along with adding the rule in the secruity groups as shown below in the comment. Thanks!
