Description Yogev Rabl 2013-08-22 07:32:11 EDT
There's no mention of the packstack logs in the documentation: 
- their location.
- how to use them (during debugging).
- write logs in debug level.

I'm adding the location of the packstack logs to the README file and how to make it write more detailed log information to te logfile.
Comment 3 Ivan Chavero 2013-10-23 01:01:44 EDT
also to the packstack.rst file

snippet from packstack man page:

   Log files and Debug info
       The  location  of  the log files and generated puppet manifests are in the /var/tmp/packstack directory under a directory named by the date in which packstack was run and a random string (e.g. /var/tmp/pack-
       stack/20131022-204316-Bf3Ek2). Inside, we find a manifest directory and the openstack-setup.log file; puppet manifests and a log file for each one are found inside the manifest directory.

       In case debugging info is needed while running packstack the -d switch will make it write more detailed information about the installation.


       If we need an allinone debug session:

       packstack -d --allinone

       If we need a answer file to tailor it and then debug:

       packstack --gen-answer-file=ans.txt packstack -d --answer-file=ans.txt
