In OpenStack Dashboard (Horizon), when I launch an Instance and I am trying to connect to the Instance via Dashboard VNC Console – I am getting error: Failed to connect to server (code: 1006). This is most often caused by improper /etc/nova/nova.conf configuration on Compute node, where the Instance is running:
From time to time, especially during testing and automated script tenant deployment, my OpenStack cloud installation gets disordered. Situations when I am unable to delete neutron port in Horizon dashboard are pretty common phenomenon, this most likely leads to problem with deleting network which the problematic port belongs to.
In such cases we may need to edit OpenStack database, which is MariaDB, and manually delete orphaned neutron port related record from MariaDB ports table.
GlusterFS is a simple and easy to configure scalable network attached storage. GlusterFS is a distributed storage consisting of nodes (servers including storage bricks), which export their own local file system as a volume. Volumes can be mounted on client servers as a network storage using NFS and Gluster Fuse. GlusterFS provides failover, redundancy and anti split-brain mechanisms that act as a High Availability system, that’s why in many aspects it is similar to the well known clustering software like Veritas Cluster Suite.
In this tutorial we will install GlusterFS on two CentOS 7 based nodes. We will use KVM Virtual Machines to make things easier and faster, but our main intention is to show you how to install GlusterFS on physical hardware.
Sometimes I need to edit files inside qcow2 or raw image, but for some reason I don’t want to launch the image in KVM or in Openstack cloud. The image can be edited offline using virt-edit tool.
Starting from Fedora release 21 (Twenty One), Fedora can be upgraded using DNF system upgrade, which is recommended upgrade method for Fedora 21 and later releases. DNF is a kind of successor for FedUp (FEDora UPgrader), which is now obsolete, not supported any more by Fedora Project and should not be used in any circumstances.
In this article we will upgrade Fedora release 21 (Twenty One) to Fedora release 22 (Twenty Two) in five simple steps, using DNF system upgrade method.
