Openstack is a flexible cloud storage solution that allows for multi-location services for storage and CPU. This howto will assist you in installing OpenStack on ClearOS 7.

This howto is considered experimental and at present does NOT work!


You must be running ClearOS 7 or later.

Make sure your system is up to date:

yum update


Add the following repo to your system:

curl > /etc/yum.repos.d/clearos-openstack.repo

This will place the file /etc/yum.repos.d/clearos-openstack.repo on your system:

# This is a developer preview release only
# not intended for end user usage at this point

name=CentOS Cloud RDO

Install the software by running:

yum install -y openstack-packstack

Openstack relies on a the iptables-service which is presently incompatible with ClearOS 7.

ERROR : Error appeared during Puppet run:
Error: Execution of '/usr/bin/yum -d 0 -e 0 -y install openstack-nova-compute' returned 1: Package iptables-services-1.4.21-13.v7.x86_64 is obsoleted by 1:app-firewall-core-2.0.5-1.v7.noarch which is already installed
You will find full trace in log /var/tmp/packstack/20141226-104216-43_BPX/manifests/


The last step is:

Finish the installation by running packstack to deploy OpenStack on your system:

packstack --allinone
