Installing OpenStack Keystone (Identity) Service | Part 1

Installing keystone with colour coded output - first of five posts

Following my high level description of OpenStack, I now delve in the install of OpenStack

This post is a manual install of OpenStack on Centos. Although the steps are detailed here: my experience was that the output of each command results in text strings that are required in subsequent commands. Thus I have colour coded each text string output so that the text can be accurately used in subsequent commands.

(This is post one of five; posts  two, three, four and five to follow will detail the install of the Compute (NOVA), Network (Quantum), Storage (Swift) services and the Dashboard)


#yum install ntp

OpenStack keystone install

Execute the following:

#yum install openstack-utils openstack-keystone python-keystoneclient

#yum install mysql mysql-server MySQL-python

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

#sudo openstack-db --init --service keystone

#keystone-manage db_sync

Here is a snippet from /etc/keystone/keystone.conf showing the admin_token that is used in future commands.
