Still following this guide.
For the controller node I needed to install first:
- SQL database: MariaDB
- NoSQL database: MongoDB
- Message queue: RabbitMQ
to support these services on the controller node:
- Identity (keystone)
- Image service (glance)
- Dashboard (horizon) – will only be installed after setting up the networking node
these on the network node:
- Networking (neutron)
and these on the compute node:
- Compute (nova)
First I install keystone and glance on the controller node, then nova on the compute node, and neutron on the network node. Back to the controller node, I will add horizon and ceilometer.
While installing keystone, and populating the database, I ran into an issue where the script returned an error:
2016-07-27 22:36:21.749 3111 ERROR oslo_db.sqlalchemy.exc_filters [-] DBAPIError exception wrapped from (pymysql.err.InternalError) (1071, u'Specified key was too long; max key length is 767 bytes')
A solution was found here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/openstack-manuals/+bug/1575688
It basically comes down to ubuntu is now using a character set with 4 bytes per character, while the python engine, while trying to create a field 250 characters long can only support 767 bytes, which is less than the 1000 bytes it would take. The fix described will reconfigure mariadb to use 1 byte characters instead, and recreate the keystone database.
As described in the guide
As described in the guide, but I did have some trouble because I entered the wrong password for the nova user while creating it in openstack.
I found this example architecture, but then I would need to add another VLAN interface to the compute and network node machines, and the controller node only needs the management interface, so I can remove interface to the tunnel network again:
On the controller node I would need to install:
On the network node:
And on the compute node:
The guide describes how to install a basic neutron service on the controller node, but instead I would like it to run on the network node instead.
Installation of the above mentioned services has been done, but setting it up proved too much at this point. I will cover this in a following post.
More information will probably come from this http://docs.openstack.org/mitaka/networking-guide/, instead of the basic installation guide.
The was very straightforward, as one would expect. Installation followed the guide.
ceilometer (still optional)
Postponing installation of ceilometer for later.
