openstack - update

Last time I was able to deploy an image. Next step would be to list it and then run. But I have hit problems.


To list images I run command:

euca-describe-images


which hangs up forever and after long time exits with message "connection reset by peer".


I have disabled iptables to eliminate firewall issues. No help.

All manuals assume that euca-describe-images should simply run and do not give instruction what to do if it does not.


Following Josh's advice I did:

strace -o edi_output -f -ff euca-describe-images

and then I looked into the output files. It seems that there might be two problems:

  1. Some euca2ools files are missing - in particular the .eucarc configuration file.
  2. There are messages about missing python files, like for example "open("/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/gtk-2.0/org.so", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)" (There are manu more like that).
So it seems that the eucatools installation described in previous posts may be not complete - and it missed some key files. Or python (which we already know had to be patched) is not OK. Or both.

That's all I know for now.
