OpenStack packages

OpenStack packages

Distributions release OpenStack packages as part of the distribution or using other methods because of differing release schedules. Perform these procedures on all nodes.


Your hosts must contain the latest versions of base installation packages available for your distribution before proceeding further.


Disable or remove any automatic update services because they can impact your OpenStack environment.

Enable the OpenStack repository

# apt-get install software-properties-common
# add-apt-repository cloud-archive:liberty

Finalize the installation

  1. Upgrade the packages on your host:

    # apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade


    If the upgrade process includes a new kernel, reboot your host to activate it.

  2. Install the OpenStack client:

    # apt-get install python-openstackclient
