Ran into an issue with the authentication of Glance, the Openstack Image Service. Alan and Brad were able to help me troubleshoot it. Currently setting up Nova which is the Openstack Compute Service.

New physical machine is up and running thanks to Brad. I reinstalled everything up to the point where I was at the end of last week. I am currently installing Glance, the Openstack image service.

Keystone, the openstack Identity service is now fully implemented. However the installation of Nova (Openstack Compute) requires a 64-bit version of CentOS 6.3 in order to install the hypervisor KVM. I will be transferring my work to a physical computer in the labs as opposed to my laptop.

Fixed keystone connection issues from last week. Re-implemented keystone to get a fresh config file and authentication is working. Creating necessary tenants, users and roles for Keystone.

Continued working on the latter part of implementing the Keystone identity service. It seems that there is something wrong with the permissions that have been granted to the Keystone user so I am in the process of re-configuring the Keystone database. I am also implementing a second IP address to try and get around the issues of having the IP and gateway on different subnets.

The first half of the week was spent increasing my very limited networking knowledge on www.firewall.cx

I had a meeting with my supervisor Ryan Ko and the rest of the week was spent trying to implement OpenStack - more specifically trying to get the identity service working (Keystone) and the mysql keystone database initialised on CentOS. I made some progress but ran into trouble with routing for the static IP defined by Keystone. I think this is caused by the fact that the IP address and the gateway address come from different subnets.
