Run OpenStack Control Plane on PowerLinux

Rre-requites

Assuming you have CentOS 7.2 or RHEL 7.2 installed on a IBM Power8 or Open Power server.

Repository Configuration

  • RHEL
    • Configure RHEL with RedHat OS repo and Optional repo. You need a valid RedHat subscription for this to work.
  • CentOS
    • Just base repo shall be fine. No EPEL repo is needed.

In addition, the following repositories should be added:

[openstack-mitaka]
name=OpenStack Mitaka Repository
baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7/cloud/x86_64/openstack-mitaka/
gpgcheck=0
enabled=1

The above is the standard RDO Mitaka repository for CentOS/RHEL. We will reuse the non-arch python packages in this repository.

[virt]
name=CentOS/RHEL-$releasever - Virt 
baseurl=ftp://ftp.unicamp.br/pub/ppc64el/centos/7_2/virt/
gpgcheck=0
enabled=1

[openstack-mitaka-dependency]
name=OpenStack Mitaka Dependency Repository
baseurl=ftp://ftp.unicamp.br/pub/ppc64el/centos/7_2/openstack/mitaka/
gpgcheck=0
enabled=1

The above two repositories contain the dependencies packages for ppc64le that enables the KVM virtualization management as well as other OpenStack services.

Installation

Follow the standard PackStack based installation procedures from step 2
