My team at Dell is still figuring out some big items for the 1.3 release; however, somethings were just added that is worth calling out.
- Ubuntu 11.04 support! Thanks to Justin Shepherd from Rackspace Cloud Builders!
- Alias names for nodes in the UI
- User managed node groups in the UI
- Ability to pre-populate the alias, description and group for a node (not integrated with DNS yet)
- Hadoop is working again – we addressed the missing Ganglia repo issue. Thanks to Victor Lowther.
For items 2 – 4, I made a short video tour: Node Alias & Group
Also, I’ve spun new open source ISOs with the new features. User beware!
I installed openstack from the openstack 1.2 iso. How do I get my own VMs loaded into it? The euca2ools aren’t installed by any of the barclamps, so is that what I should use? I installed euca2ools with apt-get on the controller node, but I get “socket.error: [Errno 111] Connection refused” using the euca-upload-bundle command. I am using all the defaults, the only edit is the network json file to give BMC a router (otherwise the ipmi doesn’t get assigned a gateway). I am using Dell C6100 bare metal.
Did you post this to the Crowbar list? I saw a thread there about the same thing.
If there, I’m not finding it. Is http://lists.us.dell.com/pipermail/crowbar/ what you are referring to as Crowbar list?
Maybe I didn’t ask the right question. Is the design of Crowbar to create a cloud that euca2ools works on, or is it intended that I use another utility to upload or create additional images? I’m wondering if I’m driving off a bridge here using euca2ools seeing as Crowbar didn’t install them, or did I not read the correct Chef tutorials, or how this is designed to work.

I tried to build a crowbar -openstack with ubuntu 11.04and crowbar ver 1.2 but get an error with chef-client connection?
Have Your crowbar 1.3 released ? is it stable with ubuntu 11.04 openstack ?
Have you built any stable iso with ubuntu >=11.04 yet ?
Can you instruct me do this?
I download your iso from http://crowbar.zehicle.com/ ver 1.3 but get the same error above.
I’m so confused with these.
I try my best to waiting for your answer
Thanks you so much
Nothing in v1.3 is stable yet – it’s the trunk development. I’ll check the version and/or update the iso.
I am trying to build a centos crowbar iso to test for a dell blade environment; I’m getting some ruby errors with 2.0 during crowbar install; is there a stable build with the dell bios?
David – the crowbar list (http://bit.ly/crowbarlist) or IRC (#crowbar) is a faster way to get questions like this answered. 2.0 sledgehammer (which is the same as 1.5+ sledgehammer) is not being tested w/ 2.0. I’d recommend testing against the 1.5 code (“fred”) base.
Note 1: Some of the 1.6 has EUFI support and that can cause strange interactions depending on various factors.
Note 2: Dell BIOS is not in the open repos.
Thanks, will try the irc. Will the ubuntu v1.5-openstack-dell work in an r420 w/iDrac7?
it should but we don’t use those in our lab – we test w/ 610, 710, 620 and 720 for PowerEdge R
