[Rdo-list] Fwd: [OpenStack-docs] [install-guide] (not that much) progress with Kilo install on RHEL/Centos 7

It works!

My repos needed fixing, after which I have:
- a Centos 7 base installation
- epel 7.5
- openstack-kilo
- delorean

With that, my second problem (glance client refusing to cooperate) is gone.
And permissive mode is indeed a workaround for problem 2.

On the way to success, I noticed that openstack-glance doesn't have the
right set of dependencies in the delorean repo. I installed
openstack-glance-api, ...-registry, ...-doc and ...-common manually. Is this
considered a bug or are such wrinkles normal at this stage?

Thanks! I will be back with further problems. Perhaps.

This appears to be an selinux issue:

  # audit2allow -a
  #============= keystone_t ==============
  allow keystone_t memcache_port_t:tcp_socket name_connect;

If I put selinux in permissive mode, I am able to successfully use the
memcache driver.

I am not able to reproduce your problem.  By default, the glance client
operates with API version 1, so you would use the '--is-public'

    glance image-create --name cirros-public \
      --file cirros-0.3.3-x86_64-disk.img  --disk-format qcow2 \
      --container-format bare --is-public True

If you use version 2 of the API, '--is-public' is replaced with

    glance --os-image-api-version=2 image-create --name cirros-public \
      --file cirros-0.3.3-x86_64-disk.img  --disk-format qcow2 \
      --container-format bare --visibility public

Both of these commands worked successfully for me.
