I recently registered for an watched a Red Hat online seminar, Taste of Training for the upcoming Red Hat Open Stack course.  Up until very recently, Red Hat OpenStack was only a technology preview, but now Red Hat is offering full support for OpenStack as part of it’s Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure product suite.

If you’re already familiar with OpenStack and/or Fedora, you can refer to this ’3 step’ guide from Red Hat:  http://openstack.redhat.com/Quickstart  Since you’re using Fedora 19, you’re not likely going to actually be able to complete the install in 3 steps as the guide suggests.  I have found there are numerous steps that must/should be modified for a smooth installation, and I have compiled those steps here for my readers.

What I’m going to outline here are some of the necessary tips and methods I gleaned from hours of frustration.  I also hope to include pretty screen shots for your convenience :).

I also intend to use Quantum networking, and (coming soon) GlusterFS as cinder storage.
