How do I install OpenStack’s Trove into Bright?

This article is being updated. Please be aware the content herein, not limited to version numbers and slight syntax changes, may not match the output from the most recent versions of Bright. This notation will be removed when the content has been updated.

Trove is OpenStack’s reference database service. At the time of writing it is undergoing heavy development. This means that administrators may need to roll up their sleeves and fix issues with it.

How to install Trove Database service on an existing Bright OpenStack installation.

The following guide got Trove from around mid October 2014 up and running with Bright. It is based on the OpenStack Installation Guide (http://docs.openstack.org/icehouse/install-guide/install/yum/content/ch_trove.html) of around that time, with some appropriate text updates.

  1. Install the packages using yum:

  # yum install openstack-trove python-troveclient

  1. Create the Trove user and give the user an admin role on the service tenant:

   keystone user-create --name trove --pass PASSWORD
    keystone user-role-add --user trove --tenant service --role admin

Protect & create the Trove service endpoints
The service endpoints in Trove are stored and extracted from a database. CMDaemon needs to be prevented from overwriting these settings. This can be done by modifying openstackcommands.py (path  /cm/local/apps/cmd/scripts/cloudproviders/openstack/openstackcommands.py). In this file, the function handleActionEnsureEndpoints() should be commented out:
  #def handleActionEnsureEndpoints(request):
  #  start = time.time()
  #  logd("Duration of %s: %f seconds" % (inspect.stack()[0][3], time.time() - start))
  #  return output
The endpoints can now be created manually with:
keystone service-create \
--name=trove --type=database  --description="OpenStack Database Service"
keystone endpoint-create \
--service-id=$(keystone service-list | awk '/ trove / {print $2}') \
--publicurl=http://master:8779/v1.0/%\(tenant_id\)s \
--internalurl=http://master:8779/v1.0/%\(tenant_id\)s \

  1. Create a database for Trove and give the system user trove access to it:

  $ mysql -u root -p
 mysql> CREATE DATABASE trove;
 mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON trove.* TO trove@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'TROVE_DBPASS';

  1. Edit the files trove.conf, trove-taskmanager, trove-conductor. Add the following configuration to [Default]:

           log_dir = /var/log/trove
           trove_auth_url = http://master:5000/v2.0
           nova_compute_url = http://master:8774/v2
           cinder_url = http://master:8776/v1
           swift_url = http://master:8080/v1/AUTH_
           sql_connection = mysql://trove:TROVE_DBPASS@master/trove
           notifier_queue_hostname = master
           rpc_backend = trove.common.rpc.impl_fake    ### some don’ts:

           ### don’t add rabbit as a rpc_backend, Trove doesn’t get that

           ### also trove.openstack.common.rpc.impl_kombu was broken at the time

           ### of writing, but this will probably have changed in a few days or weeks.
           rabbit_host = master
           rabbit_password = g3dtrA45t2liS5rMv1sXEWoV

  1. Edit /usr/share/trove/trove-dist-paste.ini, by adding under [filter:authtoken]:

       auth_host = master
       auth_port = 35357
       auth_protocol = http
       admin_user = admin
       admin_password = system
       admin_tenant_name = service

  1.  Edit trove.conf, by adding:


         default_datastore = mysql

         add_addresses = True

         network_label_regex = ^NETWORK_LABEL$

  1. Edit trove-taskmanager, by adding the following lines under [Default]:

       nova_proxy_admin_user = admin

       nova_proxy_admin_pass = 3de4922d8b6ac5a1aad9
       nova_proxy_admin_tenant_name = admin

  1. Create the database schema for Trove:

  #trove-manage db_sync

  1. Now create the Datastore. Each datastore type like mysql, cassandra, mongodb has to be run separately:

       $ su -s /bin/sh -c "trove-manage datastore_update mysql ''" trove

       $ su -s /bin/sh -c "trove-manage datastore_update cassandra ''" trove 

  1. Create the database image, The image should have the trove-guestagent installed and configured to access the trove service on the controller. This is done by installing trove-guestagent, and configuring /etc/trove-guestagent.conf as follows:

      rpc_backend = trove.common.rpc.impl_fake
       qpid_host = controller
       nova_proxy_admin_user = admin
       nova_proxy_admin_pass = 3de4922d8b6ac5a1aad9
       nova_proxy_admin_tenant_name = service
       trove_auth_url = http://master:35357/v2.0

  1. Notify and update the datastore that you have your image ready:

trove-manage --config-file /etc/trove/trove.conf datastore_version_update   mysql mysql-5.5 mysql 8cac48d8-2c29-4b2e-[Image-ID]9e86-c8efddc2db87 mysql-server-5.5 1          

  1. Restart the Trove services: 

  # cd /etc/init.d; for i in $(ls': cd /etc/init.d/; for i in $(ls openstack-trove*); do /etc/init.d/$irestart; done;

Note: At the time this was tried out (Oct 23 2014) there was a bug in Trove, in that Flavors with ids of the form 346346-24gre2-kh434 caused Trove to crash. Ids should be integers like 1, 2, 3. Like was said earlier, Trove is very much in development, so this may be fixed by now.

Your feedback is always welcome.
