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.


The set up of OpenStack packages described here needs to be done on all nodes: controller, compute, and Block Storage 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

  • Enable the Open Build Service repositories based on your openSUSE or SLES version:

    On openSUSE:

    # zypper addrepo -f obs://Cloud:OpenStack:Newton/openSUSE_Leap_42.2 Newton


    The openSUSE distribution uses the concept of patterns to represent collections of packages. If you selected ‘Minimal Server Selection (Text Mode)’ during the initial installation, you may be presented with a dependency conflict when you attempt to install the OpenStack packages. To avoid this, remove the minimal_base-conflicts package:

    # zypper rm patterns-openSUSE-minimal_base-conflicts

    On SLES:

    # zypper addrepo -f obs://Cloud:OpenStack:Newton/SLE_12_SP2 Newton


    The packages are signed by GPG key D85F9316. You should verify the fingerprint of the imported GPG key before using it.

    Key Name:         Cloud:OpenStack OBS Project <>
    Key Fingerprint:  35B34E18 ABC1076D 66D5A86B 893A90DA D85F9316
    Key Created:      2015-12-16T16:48:37 CET
    Key Expires:      2018-02-23T16:48:37 CET

Finalize the installation

  1. Upgrade the packages on your host:

    # zypper refresh && zypper dist-upgrade


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

  2. Install the OpenStack client:

    # zypper install python-openstackclient
