2015-06-15 21:55:31 -0500 asked a question In RDO, remapping Cinder loopback to LVM volume


I have a mostly vanilla RDO install with the exception that I followed the guides on the RDO website for setting up single Ethernet interface with floating IPs on the external network.

I would like to point Cinder (and later other storage) to an LVM volume which I can resize according to need. The default RDO Packstack install creates Cinder storage on a loopback volume in /opt. I've already created and formatted the new LVM volume which will host the Cinder data and copied the existing Cinder data from the loopback volume to the new LVM volume. I've not been able to figure out how I might point the various components of Openstack, maybe only Cinder is necessary, to the LVM-based storage.

Can someone walk me through that process or just point me to the relevant docs?

2014-02-25 11:31:45 -0500 asked a question Anyone have a guide for setting up / troubleshooting networking on a fresh RDO install?

Hey, everyone.

I have a really basic single-node CentOS 6.5 RDO w/ single NIC set up on my home LAN but I'm having a really difficult time with the networking setup. No matter what I try I cannot seem to get the VMs on the private network to talk to the internal LAN. I've disabled iptables on the RDO node and still cannot ping/arp floating IPs nor virtual routers I think should be connected to my internal LAN. Actually, the addresses mapped to VMs/virtual routers are not even pingable from the RDO node itself.

I've found a few guides on this site and worked through them but none of them have led anywhere.

Perhaps someone could point me in the direction of a video with detailed instructions on setting up basic RDO networking and I could use that as a sanity check?

I'm digging around trying to find a reference for Linux VNIC's and all I'm finding are links to Oracle documentation or Can anyone confirm that Ubuntu 13.04 does indeed have a VNIC feature and point me to the docs? Thx!
