Installing and Configuring the Cloud Controller

Configuring the SQL Database (MySQL) on the Cloud Controller

  • Start the mysql command line client by running: mysql -u root -p. Enter the mysql root user's password when prompted.
  • To configure the MySQL database, create the nova database. mysql> CREATE DATABASE nova;
  • Create a MySQL user and password for the newly-created nova database that has full control of the database.
mysql> quit

Installing the Cloud Controller

  • Install the messaging queue server. The OpenStack services talk to each other using AMQP (Advanced Message Queue Protocol) by communicating with a message server. On Fedora, RHEL, and CentOS, the most tested messaging server is Apache Qpid. Refer to the Compute Administration Manual for configuration instructions, including adding rpc_backend=nova.rpc.impl_qpid to your nova.conf.

sudo yum install openstack-utils memcached qpid-cpp-server

  • Install the required nova- packages, and dependencies are automatically installed.
sudo yum install openstack-nova

  • Start Qpid service: /etc/init.d/qpidd start
