The source install instructions specifically avoid using platform specific packages, instead using the source for the code and the Python Package Index (PyPi).
Clone the keystone repository:
git clone http://github.com/openstack/keystone.git cd keystone
Install the dependencies to run keystone:
sudo pip install -r tools/pip-requires
And at this point, you should have all the pieces you need to run keystone installed on your system. The following commands should be available on the commandline path:
You will find sample configuration files in etc/
From here, refer to configuration to choose which backend drivers to enable and use. Once configured, you should be able to run keystone by issuing the command:
which (by default) will show logging on the console from which it was started. Once started, you can initialize data in keystone for use with the rest of openstack, as described in configuring-services.
An excellent reference implementation of setting up keystone is DEVSTACK, most commonly used for development and testing setup of not only Keystone, but all of the core OpenStack projects.
The script with the latest examples of intializing data in Keystone is a bash script called keystone_data.sh
Ubuntu is providing packages for Keystone for Precise. To install keystone on Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install keystone
In using Ubuntu’s packages, the packages will set up a user account for the Keystone service (keystone), and place default configurations in /etc/keystone. The debian installer will also ask you about configuration options for setting up and running Keystone. As of this writing, the defaults for Keystone backends are all SQL based, stored locally in a sqlite.
Once installed, you still need to initialize data in Keystone, which you can find described in configuring-services.
Installing Keystone with Fedora 17 is documented at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Getting_started_with_OpenStack_on_Fedora_17.
To install the packages:
sudo yum install --enablerepo=updates-testing openstack-keystone
Once installed, you can configure keystone based on the instructions at:
