I know in my last post, I said I’d be focusing on CI/CD next. But, given that I’ve been a bit lax in blogging, I decided to post about what we’re working on for TripleO in the OpenStack Juno timeframe. We had a TripleO midcycle meetup hosted at the Red Hat HQ in Raleigh, NC […]

I figured a good way to […]

I just got done publishing this on the RDO wiki: http://openstack.redhat.com/TripleO_VM_Setup It’s a set of steps to help people get setup for TripleO, which is the OpenStack deployment program. It uses 3 vm’s for the setup. One for your undercloud, and 2 that simulate baremetal nodes for provisioning of the overcloud. The steps are CLI […]

I’ve found myself using virsh more and more to manage my libvirt based virtual machines, as working from a CLI based shell is easier for me.  virt-manager is nice, but not all of the libvirt features are exposed in its GUI for vm management.    However, I didn’t see a virsh command for launching a running […]

I thought I’d post about my experience getting Pulp running on  OpenShift, and more specifically, OpenShift Origin. First, the why.  Well, I want an environment where I can run multiple instances of Pulp side by side, independent of each other.  Pulp uses config files installed under /etc, extensions and plugins installed under /usr, and writes […]

Thought I’d play around a bit with getting a WordPress blog running in OpenShift.  I’m  pleased with how easy it was.  Stay tuned as I plan to blog a bit about some of my other experiences with OpenShift as well as some about Pulp.
