Re: [rdo-list] Baremetal Tripleo stable version?

Hi Christopher,

thank you, I'll test it out.

According with my interpretation from documentation, mitaka version is made from nightly builds, as the "stable" version is from liberty.

Maybe someone from rdo can clarify this.

Anyway, both seem broken right now, like you I test this in baremetal for deploying in production, not in virtual environments.

Hi Pedro,

TL;DR Try the links below and if fails try Liberty.

We've got Mitaka working after some of the frustrations you are
experiencing. The image that gets built doesn't work. There was some
discussion as to whether a hiera update broke this - it was reverted
but the image still seems broken.

Try using these:


We used packages from:


but the introspection is broken due to a race condition that hasn't
been patched in this stable repo yet (I believe).

Not given up yet but yes, Liberty tripleo worked fine for us.

There seems to be a large amount of development work going into
tripleo-quickstart which doesn't really work for production use and I'm
not sure if the developers have access to lots of baremetal for
testing. As a result I think actual production RDO doesn't get huge
amounts of testing - I'm talking baremetal HA controllers with network
isolation over bonded connections etc.

We have abandoned the tripleo docs and use the Red Hat docs as a

I have no idea how to actually run Mitaka stable. When I follow the
tripleo docs and use the "stable" delorean repo (still not sure what
that actually is) I end up with packages like:


which seems to indicate it is a nightly snapshot from git. Obviously
I'd rather not run that in production.

Its all a bit of a mess. I did try to make a start on cleaning up the
RDO docs but to be honest it meant having to learn yet another type of
documentation syntax so have reverted to internal documentation.
