At this point in the installation, the OpenStack Identity, Image, Dashboard, and Compute services have been successfully deployed across the nodes of the cloud. The environment is not ready to host instances just yet, as OpenStack Networking services have not been installed or configured. If issues arise during the installation and test procedures documented throughout this chapter, be sure to check the log messages found in
/var/log/keystone/ for assistance in troubleshooting.
It is important to note that the frequent OpenStack release cycle means that older releases may no longer be available for download 12–18 months after their initial release. For updated installation guides for the latest version of OpenStack, visit http://docs.openstack.org.
In the next chapter, we will begin the installation of Neutron networking services and discover additional information about the internal architecture of OpenStack Networking.
