Null Physical

Preload USB Image

This is an ideal format if you are planning to perform installations on physical machines. Your appliance’s disk image will be wrapped in a simple bootable installer that asks only which hard disk to install to, and packaged for use on a USB stick.

Preload ISO (.iso)

This is an ideal format if you are planning to perform installations on physical machines. Your appliance’s disk image will be wrapped in a simple bootable installer that asks only which hard disk to install to, and packaged for use on optical media.

Null Virtual

VMware Workstation / VirtualBox (.vmdk)

For virtual machines on VMware, VirtualBox, or KVM-based hypervisors. Test an appliance without formatting any hard disk. VirtualBox and VMware applications are available for most host operating systems. KVM virtualization is for Linux only.

Null Cloud

SUSE Cloud / OpenStack / KVM (.qcow2)

If you plan to use SUSE Cloud services to host your server, this format will properly configure the appliance for you to do so. Use WebHooks to inform your cloud of a new image, and upload it automatically.

Its important that you answer several questions before proceeding. You
can find those questions in the SUSE OpenStack Cloud 4 Deployment Guide

This Questionnaire will help you as a companion to the Deployment Guide.
SUSE Cloud Questionnaire

This guide on using the appliance can help walk you through step by
step. (Pending update for 4.0.×... Check back)
SUSE OpenStack Cloud Admin Appliance Guide

The most updated guide will always be here

Changes from Github Project
1. Refreshed the Updates Repositories to contain latest patches
2. Applied latest Updates to the Appliance

Once the appliance is deployed then you must finish the setup.
To finish setting up the SUSE OpenStack Cloud 4 Admin Appliance you
will need to define the network. To help you with the network
configuration refer to the deployment guide and companion
deployment questionnaire.

execute yast2 crowbar

Once your network settings are all defined then continue the crowbar install

execute screen install-suse-cloud

Before you proceed with install-suse-cloud its important that
the network settings are properly defined and that you have
everything right otherwise you will need to start over.

Cameron SeaderCameron Seader,

Explain further. I don’t know what you mean by boot loading bar. Are you referring to the grub boot screen?

LanceHaigLanceHaig,

Hi Cameron,

Do you know how long it will be before you release the 5 version?
I want to do a POC for someone and would like to learn about that version if possible.

Thanks

Cameron SeaderCameron Seader,

You will see it in the coming weeks right before the OpenStack Summit. :-) Its coming soon everyone.

Cameron SeaderCameron Seader,

Its Released. Link for the new one is in the Summary at the top

LanceHaigLanceHaig,

Thanks Buddy, I have had my head down for a bit with ’work" will take a look at it.

Thanks

Jose Luis BarahonaJose Luis Barahona,

Hi Cameron,

Any plans or date to bring Suse Openstack Cloud Admin 5?
Really looking forward to having a look on it :)
Cheers

Cameron SeaderCameron Seader,

Yes, I am working on it. However the distribution method might be different.

Cameron SeaderCameron Seader,

Its Released. Link for the new one is in the Summary at the top

Ettore SimoneEttore Simone,

Hi Cameron,

I’d like to suggest to include the kernel-firmware package.
This will resolve the issue on installing the appliance on some HW (in my case a 4yo HP) where some network firmware are not found during the initial setup.

Thanks for the great job and regards.

Cameron SeaderCameron Seader,

I thought that was in there. I will look at this for sure. Thanks for this feedback. kernel-firmware should be in all of these appliances.

Jose Luis BarahonaJose Luis Barahona,

Hi Cameron,
That’s me again. In the second phase of our PoT we would like to provision the server over a 10GB Net interface. Teh card that we are using (Brocade Converged) seems not to be compatible.
I tried to rebuild the initrd images (initrd and initrd0.img) but It is not working reliable.
Du you have some advice to rebuild the boot images correctly? I’ve bee trying it for weeks without success.
Cheers

Cameron SeaderCameron Seader,

If you have downloaded the 4.0.1 version of the VMX format then you will suffer with many errors in your deployment. After loading the VMX format into VMware you will need to adjust the amount of memory that has been allocated from 512MB to at least 4GB or 8GB of memory. 512MB is way too small for this setup.

I have rebuilt the images and published a 4.0.2 version which has a fix to the VMX format so that its automatically set to 4GB in size.

Vincent PassaroVincent Passaro,

Install routinely fails with ’crowbar installation terminated prematurely. See /var/log/crowbar/install.log

Log file contains:

Networking Errors:
Connection refused connecting to localhost:4000 /nodes/admin.cloud.default.net

Your chef_server_url may be misconfigured or the network could be down.

Cameron SeaderCameron Seader,

Are you installing on a physical or in a virtual environment?

Cameron SeaderCameron Seader,

please run supportconfig and send me the tarball by uploading to ftp.novell.com/incoming then email me the name of the file you uploaded. My email is cs@suse.com

Jose Luis BarahonaJose Luis Barahona,

Hi,

Im getting an error while running “screen install-suse-cloud”.

ERROR: /opt/dell/barclamps/provisioner knife cookbook upload -o . dhcp nfs-server provisioner -V -k /etc/chef/webui.pem -u chef-webui upload failed. Aborting; examine /var/log/crowbar/barclamp_install/provisioner.log for more info.

in the provisioner.log file is just a bunch of hmtl code.. nothing to find a solution

Would you give us a hand?

Cameron SeaderCameron Seader,

what is your result if you rerun “screen install-suse-cloud” ?

Jose Luis BarahonaJose Luis Barahona,

The blue screen shows this message:
Crowbar installation terminated prematurely. Please examine the above │
│ output or /var/log/crowbar/install.log for clues as to what went wrong. │
│ You should also check the SUSE Cloud Installation Manual, in │
│ particular the Troubleshooting section. Note that this script can │
│ safely be re-run multiple times if required.

And the crowbar/install.log has this output:

Installing barclamp provisioner from /opt/dell/barclamps/provisioner
ERROR: /opt/dell/barclamps/provisioner knife cookbook upload -o . dhcp nfs-server provisioner -V -k /etc/chef/webui.pem -u chef-webui upload failed. Aborting; examine /var/log/crowbar/barclamp_install/provisioner.log for more info.

Cameron SeaderCameron Seader,

Cameron SeaderCameron Seader,

Found the problem. Noticed that this is the VMX format of the appliance. The build for this VMX appliance didn’t have enough memory set. It comes set at 512MB which is not enough memory for the admin node to properly deploy and will cause all sorts of strange errors if you have it set too low. I have modified it to 4096MB which will give it plenty of room now. So for your case if you have downloaded the 4.0.2 version you will need to adjust the memory to 4GB or 8GB and then reinstall everything. I am building a version 4.0.3 which will fix this problem permanently for anyone else that downloads the VMX format. Sorry for the inconvenience.
