  • (Ubuntu16.04) Step - Enable the OpenStack repository - running "add-apt-repository cloud-archive:newton-proposed" returns the error "'newton-proposed' not a vaild cloud-archive name".Works fine for me on 16.04 - DC Confirmed, works fine. Make sure you have run apt-get update --TF
  • (Ubuntu16.04) Identity Service > Install and configure components. Step 3 - running "su -s /bin/sh -c "keystone-manage db_sync" keystone" returns an SQL connection error similar to https://bugs.launchpad.net/openstack-manuals/+bug/1612409- Confirmed. Looks like mariadb is only listening on - TF. Solved- The directory path to add mySQL configuration files for Xenial has changed from Trusty Tahr. http://docs.openstack.org/draft/install-guide-ubuntu/environment-sql-database.html Step 3. Change directory path to /etc/mysql/mariadb.conf.d/99-openstack.cnf. Also if an identity database has been created, delete it and create it again -DC.https://bugs.launchpad.net/openstack-manuals/+bug/1628375 Fix merged.
  • (Ubuntu16.04) Environment -> SQL database says "Choose a suitable password for the database root account." However, in 16.04 the prompt to enter a root password does not appear as it did in 14.04. -- https://review.openstack.org/377270. You can do this when you run the mysql_secure_installation script. I think this step should be moved to the Finalize Installation section. https://bugs.launchpad.net/openstack-manuals/+bug/1628375. Fix merged
  • (Ubuntu16.04) Identity Service >Configure the Apache HTTP server. Cannot restart the Apache HTTP server. Solved: Do not create the /etc/apache2/sites-available/wsgi-keystone.conf file mentioned in step 2. Keystone already includes this file -DC https://bugs.launchpad.net/openstack-manuals/+bug/1628689 This also is valid for Debian.' Fixed for Ubuntu. The file is required for RDO, but can be symlinked from keystone (https://review.openstack.org/#/c/382138/) 'This may apply for openSUSE - can other testers verify this issue? This does not affect openSUSE
  • (openSUSE Leap 42.2) All instances of opensuse 42.1 have to be changed to opensuse 42.2 as 42.1 its not a supported target for Newton https://bugs.launchpad.net/openstack-manuals/+bug/1630915
  • (openSUSE Leap 42.2) Section: Block Storage service -> Install and configure controller node. Step: Install and configure components, Issue: Cant install python-cinder due to unmeet dependencies, Bug report: https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1000731
  • (SLES12) Launch instance Network option 1: Instances get IP on Neutron, but cant use them. The dhcdiscover inside the VMs does not find anything. Might be local issue.
  • (SLES12) Launch instance Network option 2: Instances get IP on Neutron, but cant use them. The dhcdiscover inside the VMs does not find anything. Might be local issue.
  • (Ubuntu 16.04) In Horizon install, it's not clear what "Comment out any other session storage configuration." means
  • (Ubuntu 16.04) In Horizon install, it's asked to specify: "SESSION_ENGINE = 'django.contrib.sessions.backends.cache'", but that option isn't found in the config. Just add the config in /etc/openstack-dashboard/local_settings.py. The note above the procedure mentions you might need to add options and sections. -DC
  • (Ubuntu 16.04) In Neutron install, it still uses the rpc_backend option, which is DEPRECATED: Replaced by [DEFAULT]/transport_url
  • (Ubuntu 16.04) Access the instance using the virtual console: Can't access the instance. Possibly a local network issue.
  • (Ubuntu 16.04) Block storage: After creating a volume, the volume status says "error". Possibly a local issue.
  • (SLES12) Dashboard: Configuration file provided in the package is wrong: https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/430545 Fix merged.
  • (SLES12) Block storage: Missing config file for tgt: https://review.openstack.org/377771 Fix merged.
  • (SLES12) Block storage Launch instance: Missing config file for tgt: https://review.openstack.org/377771 Fix merged.
  • (CentOS 7) delorean repo has moved to http://buildlogs.centos.org/centos/7/cloud/x86_64/rdo-trunk-master-tested/delorean.repo. Patch submitted: https://review.openstack.org/376219 - Section removed.
