2015-02-18 01:18:38 -0500 answered a question Why does Metadata Agent keep falling over?

ECONNREFUSED is irrefutable - nothing was negotiated, there will be no IO.

Check to see if perchance SElinux is enabled, or if a firewall rule is precluding the connection.

2014-12-17 09:15:11 -0500 answered a question create a openflow flow to untag a vlan then retag it with vlanid=0

ovs-ofctl add-flow br0 "in_port=50, action=strip_vlan,push_vlan:0x8100,11,output:52" -O openflow13

Manual says: The add-flow, add-flows, and mod-flows commands require an additional field, which must be the final field specified: actions=[action][,action...]

note it's plural - try this (untested):

ovs-ofctl add-flow br0 "in_port=50, actions=strip_vlan,push_vlan:0x8100,11,output:52" -O openflow13

2013-11-14 16:09:16 -0500 commented question How to get DevStack VMs to access the internet

You asked this question >4mo ago, so almost certainly you've resolved the matter by now... would you mind sharing how you fixed the problem, and what you learned in the process?

2013-11-14 15:43:55 -0500 commented question Is sluggish performance caused by scheduler startup errors?

"this error repeats many times" ...other than the date stamps, is 100% of the remainder of the message repeating exactly? Or, are there differences? (for example, the host name changes each time?)

2013-11-12 19:28:38 -0500 answered a question Management tool for openstack

FULL DISCLOSURE: I work for Mirantis

Mirantis's FUEL offering is focused on OpenStack deployment and management.

My recommendation would be to review your needs, regarding the features you would need for concurrently managing multiple (geographically or otherwise) distinct cloud deployments.

If there are things you would find useful for the product to do, which are not currently implemented, you could file some feature requests with us, and quite possibly you'll see those features in a future version of FUEL.

2013-11-05 14:04:05 -0500 answered a question Permissions issue when installing devstack

It's a pretty typical linux install experience. Can't say if it's intended or not. The good thing is, it does all the work as "stack" which is an unprivileged user.

"cd into /opt and clone devstack" ...what exact command did you run to clone devstack?

Hope this helps.

Kind regards, -Paul

2013-11-01 15:00:27 -0500 answered a question Migration from essex to havana


The best approach I'm aware of is to setup a new havana-based cloud right beside the old one (pull nodes off the old one, if needed, to give the new one enough resources) - and then migrate your application workloads over to the new cloud.

This way, you're not really caring about the cloud instances themselves. They were just workers - so you replace them with new workers in the new cloud, doing the same job for your end users that the old workers were doing.

With puppet and friends it's possible to deploy production nodes "hands off" - i.e. no human ever logs in on them. Very possibly you could use the same puppet deployment scripts with Havana that you may have originally targetted to Essex.

Also, LBaaS can help minimize the impact of switchover. Hope this helps!
