Packstack

SYNOPSIS

packstack [options]

DESCRIPTION

Packstack is a utility that uses puppet modules to install OpenStack. It can be used to install each OpenStack service on separate servers, an 'allinone' server, or any combination of these. There are three ways that Packstack can be run.

  • packstack
  • packstack [options]
  • packstack --gen-answer-file=<file> [options] / packstack --answer-file=<file>

The third option allows the user to generate a default answer file, edit the default options, and finally run Packstack a second time using this answer file. This is the easiest way to run Packstack and the one that will be documented here. Optionally, it is possible to set additional command-line options (such as a default password), and those options will be set in the answer file.

When <file> is created, it will contain the OPTIONS below, which can then be edited by the user.

Log files and Debug info

Log files and generated puppet manifests can be found in the /var/tmp/packstack directory under a directory named by the date in which Packstack was run and a random string (for example, /var/tmp/packstack/20131022-204316-Bf3Ek2). Inside the directory are the openstack-setup.log file and a manifest directory, which contains puppet manifests and a log file for each one.

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

Examples:

If we need an all-in-one 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
