2014-04-18 10:03:21 -0500 answered a question "Authors" file missing in the cinder repository to allow merging in trunk

This doc is outdated. Nowadays, AUTHORS files are autogenerated from git authors, so you don't need to add your name to it prior to contributing.

The instructions on how to become a developer of any OpenStack project are on the wiki page How To Contribute.

Cinder doc should be fixed, I filed the following bug to track that:

2013-11-02 14:18:39 -0500 answered a question how many openstack deployments are there?

We have no "phone-home" feature so there is no definitive answer to that. While most public cloud providers publicize the software they used, most private clouds (except in semi-public areas like government or academia) are generally a lot more shy.

The data from the User Survey, as well as the User Stories on the website, give some examples. Others can be derived from the long list of companies supporting OpenStack.

What version of the keystone packages do you have installed ?

2013-09-30 08:41:41 -0500 answered a question url problem

If the PPA is not installed, you can just skip the add-apt-repository line in the instructions.

The add-apt-repository was meant to add a PPA which would contain the swift packages. Since Swift was included in the "main" repository for 12.04, there is no need to add a PPA to install Swift. So you can just ignore the error.

2013-09-30 08:05:27 -0500 answered a question url problem

Ubuntu 12.04 has Swift in its "main" archives (version 1.4.8-0ubuntu2.2) which was superseding the PPA version anyway. Could you tell us what your current swift version is ("dpkg -l swift") ? If the main version was used, you can just remove the PPA (sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:swift-core/release).

2013-09-13 05:13:44 -0500 edited question Installing python-glanceclient without pip

I would like to install python-glanceclient, but I cannot do it using the script because I don't have pip on this OS, and installing pip is not an option. Is there an easy way to install it?

I though copying the folder glanceclient into the site-packages folder was enough, but no. How can I do it? Thanks.

2013-08-30 10:51:43 -0500 edited question Do I need a special license for commercial use ?

Hello, we are planning install openstack to our servers for commercial use. Is there any special license that we need to purchase or there is no need for that?

thank you in advance

2013-08-30 10:50:36 -0500 answered a question Do I need a special license for commercial use ?

OpenStack is Apache-2 licensed. This license does not place restrictions on usage, so you don't need a special license to use it for commercial purposes. (IANAL, etc.)

You should probably post those as new, separate questions, so that others can find the answers that will be posted there by searching.

2013-08-08 10:55:36 -0500 answered a question Where is Openstack release plan ?

OpenStack development is split into development cycles (Grizzly, Havana...). You can see the roadmap for the current development cycle (including Nova and Keystone plans) at:

Features are implemented as a set of blueprints. Blueprints with higher priority are more likely to be finished in a given release cycle.

For major changes, removals and upgrade notes between versions, we publish Release Notes around release time that detail the major changes compared to the previous release. You can find for example the release notes for the 2013.1 (Grizzly) release at:

Tried to run keystone-manage pki_setup on Ubuntu 12.04 and received the following:

keystone-manage pki_setup

Available commands:
                db_sync: Sync the database.
  export_legacy_catalog: Export the service catalog from a legacy database.
          import_legacy: Import a legacy database.
       import_nova_auth: Import a dump of nova auth data into keystone.
Unknown command: pki_setup
2013-06-14 10:12:50 -0500 answered a question Trying to run "keystone-manage pki_setup" however the command doesn't exist

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS ships with Keystone 2012.1 ("Essex") while pki_setup was added to keystone-manage over the Grizzly development cycle.

You should enable the Ubuntu Cloud Archive if you want to run Grizzly on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

2013-04-01 09:19:56 -0500 edited answer I am setting up swift with 2 VMs

1) What's your expectation of swift to put object into drives? 2) Could you please paste the content of your builder file on? 3) Why do you run four storage nodes on a VM? Is that b/c the SAIO document ?

In my opinion, you can run 1 storage node in a VM with multiple workers and obtain 4 disks.

2013-03-27 06:04:24 -0500 edited answer Why do I get "Timed out" error when trying to create a glance image?

You're not giving enough information for helping you. You can use the --debug cli argument in order to get more useful information.

The other place to look to provide more information is in the logs for glance - typically /var/log/glance/glance-api.log, which should at least show the request if it made it to the API endpoint, and may show more detail as to why the request timed out.

Try issuing the command with that argument and updating your question with the output. Also, add more info about your configuration, hosts, image size, etc.

2011-07-26 09:42:02 -0500 answered a question xenapi create_vdi error

From DanPrince:

I think this may be a configuration issue. The current nova xenapi code requires that nova-compute be run inside a VM on the actual XenServer host machine it is controlling. If you do this then you should automatically have the /sys/hypervisor/uuid file available for nova-compute to read.

The nova xenapi plugins (which get installed on the XenServer itself) use this to create and mount a VDI device in the nova-compute VM where the raw image data can be written.

Hope this helps.

I'll assume it does solve your issue -- If not please reopen the bug by setting its status back to New.

2011-07-08 10:37:04 -0500 answered a question nova-manage crashes when mysql root password contains special chars

Flag values are actually Python Template strings.

You should use "$$" to represent "$" in a flag value.

See for details:

2011-07-08 10:35:41 -0500 answered a question nova-manage crashes when mysql root password contains special chars

This is in fact desired behavior: flags value are actually Template strings, and "$ABCD" serves to reference the value of the ABCD flag.

2011-02-18 08:29:09 -0500 answered a question No handlers could be found for logger "nova.root"

This is, I think, symptomatic of nova-manage not finding a configuration file. Could you try running nova-manage with the --flagfile option pointing to a nova.conf with a --sql_connection pointing to your MySQL setup...

If that doesn't work, could you give precisions on your setup ? How did you deploy nova on that Fedora box ?

2011-01-05 10:26:32 -0500 answered a question normal user authorization failed

From Vish:

By default, you need the netadmin role to authorize security groups and associate public ips. Use BOTH of the following to give the user the netadmin access to a project:

nova-manage role add (user) netadmin nova-manage role add (user) netadmin (project)

To call RunInstances, your user needs to have 'projectmanager' or 'sysadmin' roles. Looking at the code, by default, "normal" users can only run Describe commands, and Create/Delete keypairs.

This is not a bug, but a question.
