Red Hat OpenStack 5.0 Beta - Foreman pkg is missing

Latest response

Hi there,

I'm trying to evaluate the OpenStack 5.0 Beta, but we cannot find the Foreman Package looks like it is not available in the REPOS. We tried with RHEL6 and RHEL7.

Is the Foreman package available for the 5.0 beta already? How can I install that?

Hi Renato,

Have you checked out the Installation and Configuration Guide for OpenStack 5?

Hi David, Yep I checked it.

Looks like the Foreman is not available yet. Just Packstack deployment way is available for now.

Renato, Thank you for your inquiry, RHOSP5 on RHEL7 is only available via packstack at the moment.

Also an article that may interest you is Known Issues with Red Hat Enterprise Linux Openstack Platform 5 (Icehouse) beta This may help with installing the beta. This article is from the first beta, and I cannot confirm if all of the the issues have been fixed in the current beta available. This provide work around for common stumbling blocks.
