Diablo RPM repository

Oleg Gelbukh - December 29, 2011

Recently we've deployed OpenStack Diablo release for one of our customers. The target operating system happened to be CentOS 6.0. During deployment testing we've stumbled upon a number of bugs in OpenStack RPMs that we've tried to use.

All existing RPMs of OpenStack that we've found contained problems that prevented components from operating correctly with each other:
1. Incompatible protocol in packaged version of Keystone (already fixed):https://lists.launchpad.net/openstack/msg04876.html
2. Json template bug (already fixed): https://bugs.launchpad.net/keystone/+bug/865448/
3. ISCSI target management troubles: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=737046

In addition, there was no packaged nova-vnc in CentOS repositories.
So we've fixed these bugs and established our own repository for OpenStack Diablo. Packages added there have been tested in a real-world deployment.

You can easily install the repository on your CentOS system using wget:

$ sudo wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/epel-mirantis.repohttp://download.mirantis.com/epel-el6-mirantis/epel-mirantis.repo
