    does anyone know how to make packstack work on RHEL6.4 connected to RHN through proxy. yum in itself works fine i have hundreds of systems connected and all commands work perfectly fine but when packstack calls yum (internally) yum is not able to connect to RHN. throws error like below

    Installing Dependencies... [ ERROR ]

    ERROR : Failed to run remote script: no package provides puppet
    Loaded plugins: product-id, rhnplugin, security, subscription-manager
    This system is receiving updates from RHN Classic or RHN Satellite.

    I am skipping this presentation - I haven't installed any Centos VM's on my Mac. It's RH burden of proof that the installation of Open Stack be intuitive. If the installation and configuration of Open Stack matches that of say sendmail in complexity, I don't want to have anything to do with Open Stack.

      A bit harsh

      I hate sendmail. And I hate the O'Reilly bat book on sendmail.

    For anyone running RHEL6, you will also need the optional channel enabled to solve some puppet dependencies:

    rhn-channel -a -c rhel-x86_64-server-optional-6

    My mistake; Nati will be presenting. Both talks will run ~45 minutes each. We'll leave ~45 minutes for questions and lab time.

    November 21, 2013

    RDO works with RHEL, Fedora, and CentOS. Dan will actually demo the install using Fedora 19. The plan is for him to walk though the install and the dashboard/CLI in the first hour and then take questions and walk around folks who want to try the install in the second hour.

    • John N.

      So Nati Shalom won't be presenting on migrating apps to the cloud?

      November 21, 2013

  • Ann M.

    do we need to be running RHEL or some other Linux in order to participate in the demos?
