Description ben-redhat 2013-10-29 04:08:13 EDT
Description of problem:

When doing an interactive install of Red Hat OpenStack Grizzly with packstack, the install fails with:

ERROR : Error during puppet run : Error: Execution of '/usr/bin/yum -d 0 -e 0 -y install openstack-quantum' returned 1:
Please check log file /var/tmp/packstack/20131022-131634-8x3p1o/openstack-setup.log for more information

The systems have lost network activity.

I tracked it down when I did a non-interactive install and compared the answer file, CONFIG_NOVA_NETWORK_HOST when doing the interactive install does not get set to the correct IP address.  It sets it to the default IP that packstack offers to assign each question, which for me was the wrong IP address.  During the interactive install, it never asks for the network host, and when it asks to verify the configuration it is not listed either.

Fixing the IP address for CONFIG_NOVA_NETWORK_HOST in the answer file and running packstack --answer-file completes successfully.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

# rpm -q -a | grep "packstack"

How reproducible:

Every time packstack is run in interactive mode.  If the default IP address works, then it isn't an issue, but for me the default IP does not work.  I ran packstack from a system not part of the OpenStack cloud. I was assuming it would want a dedicated Puppet server, but it doesn't look like it needs one.

When run in non-interactive mode, packstack sets the IP address correctly for my setup.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run packstack in interactive mode from a machine that isn't in the OpenStack cloud.
2. The default IP address offered by packstack will be assigned to CONFIG_NOVA_NETWORK_HOST in the answer file instead of the controller node IP.

Actual results:
CONFIG_NOVA_NETWORK_HOST=One of the IPs from the system running packstack

Expected results:
CONFIG_NOVA_NETWORK_HOST=Internal IP of network node

Did you enable quantum while installing in interactive way??

If quantum is enabled packstack is not going configure nova network so it wont ask for CONFIG_NOVA_NETWORK_HOST

have you tried a new packstack version?? openstack-packstack-2013.1.1-0.31.dev696.el6
Comment 3 ben-redhat 2013-11-14 22:09:01 EST
Yes, I was using Quantum.  I was not using nova-network, but the installation failed when the IP address of that variable did not match the network controller node.  Just changing that variable was the difference between a working install and a non-working install.

I have not tried reproducing it with a newer packstack.  I have a working install after manually fixing that variable. I was just trying to report the issue I had so that hopefully others wouldn't have the same issue.

We appreciate your help!

After some tests i found that the current packstack version does not have this problem.

NEEDINFO Ivan Chavero

Hi Ivan, your prev needinfo was reset, but this bug is in the list of bugs in advisory and still requires doc text (comment 8) , or needs flag set to - if no doc text required.

With version: openstack-packstack-2013.2.1-0.20.dev936.el6ost.noarch

I ran an interactive install, and for all nova-related and neutron-related questions I entered a non-default IP address. Still, in the answers file, the field CONFIG_NOVA_NETWORK_HOSTS got the default IP (my IP).
Comment 11 Ivan Chavero 2013-12-18 09:46:59 EST

If you don't, the interactive install won't ask for the CONFIG_NOVA_NETWORK_HOSTS param.

extract of the interactive install using openstack-packstack-2013.2.1-0.20.dev936.el6ost.noarch:

Should Packstack install OpenStack Networking (Neutron) service [y|n]  [y] : n

Enter list of IP addresses on which to install the Nova Network service  [] :
Parameter CONFIG_NOVA_NETWORK_HOSTS failed validation: Given host does not listen on port 22:
User input failed validation, do you still wish to use it? (yes|no): yes

grep CONFIG_NOVA_NETWORK_HOSTS packstack-answers-20131218-074153.txt 

confirmed it works
Comment 12 Udi 2013-12-19 04:51:38 EST
I checked again with OpenStack Networking (Neutron) service turned off, and confirmed that CONFIG_NOVA_NETWORK_HOSTS gets set. 

Checked in: openstack-packstack-2013.2.1-0.20.dev936.el6ost.noarch

I suggest documenting the fact that Nova networking will not be configured if Neutron is installed.
