OpenStack Orchestration

By: Adnan Ahmed Siddiqui

Overview of this book

This book is focused on setting up and using one of the most important services in OpenStack orchestration, Heat. First, the book introduces you to the orchestration service for OpenStack to help you understand the uses of the templating mechanism, complex control groups of cloud resources, and huge-potential and multiple-use cases. We then move on to the topology and orchestration specification for cloud applications and standards, before introducing the most popular IaaS cloud framework, Heat. You will get to grips with the standards used in Heat, overview and roadmap, architecture and CLI, heat API, heat engine, CloudWatch API, scaling principles, JeOS and installation and configuration of Heat. We wrap up by giving you some insights into troubleshooting for OpenStack. With easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions and supporting images, you will be able to manage OpenStack operations by implementing the orchestration services of Heat.

OpenStack daemons can't connect to qpidd

If OpenStack components are not able to connect to the qipdd and if the error message displays: ''Address family for hostname not supported,'' then it means the problem is with the IP configuration on one of the interfaces.

This can happen if IPv6 is enabled and the loopback interface (lo0) does not have a valid IPv6 address. The problem can be solved by editing the /etc/hosts file:

vi /etc/hosts
# "::1"


The preceding line needs to be commented using #.
