I was able to successfully install the newer 1.4 version of Helion CE by changing my baremetal.csv file to have all identical mem/cpu/storage numbers ( my systems are not all the same).

2014-10-15 15:06:55 -0500 asked a question How to extend the time allowed for overcloud create

I'm trying to install a 5 node baremetal HelionCE. The servers I'm using have a lot of RAM and some unused HBAs resulting in a long POST / boot time. After removing some HBAs to speedup the boot time 3 of the 5 nodes booted before hp_ced_installer.sh exited...

QUESTION: HOW can I increase the time allowed for the Overcloud creation ??
