While Packstack is running, you can check the /var/tmp/packstack directory on the new node. There, you should see the log files from the Packstack installation, which should give you some hint on what is failing.

Can you share some details about the environment? Was it an all-in-one installation? I understand if there is an error message about vpnaas, you had modified your answer file to enable it, correct?

Also, did you set up your repos installing the centos-relase-openstack-newton package?

The package is now correctly tagged, so I think it should be updated pretty soon.

Packstack development started before Ansible was widespread, so it solved the orchestration issue using its own code rather than an external tool. Today, it would make sense to refactor its code to use Ansible, although it is a non-trivial effort and it would depend on resource availability and community involvement.

2016-08-16 02:11:16 -0600 answered a question Packstack: Does EXCLUDE_SERVERS realy work?

Yes, this is the expected Packstack behaviour. Packstack generates the puppet manifests for all servers, then it only executes the ones required. If any server is excluded, its manifests will not be run.

Hi Ruben,

The error message says Packstack is not being able to find a Puppet module called "remote". It should be installed as part of the openstack-puppet-modules package, can you check if there is a directory named /usr/share/openstack-puppet/modules/remote ?

Sure, you can use the enoxxx NIC name, there is no need to rename it.

I am not very familiar with the Huawei drivers, but I think the documentation is outdated. I have found references to the huawei_t driver being removed during the Kilo lifecycle: (
