Openstack Dashboard User Creation Issue

Asked by Imesh Gunaratne on 2011-09-14

I installed Openstack Dashboard in Ubuntu 11.04 but when syncdb is run it didn't prompt to create a username and password. It just completed with the text "No fixtures found."

Any help is really appreciated.

the dashboard no longer maintains its own list of users. Instead, the dashboard uses Openstack Keystone to provide authentication.

You will need to set up a keystone endpoint (https://launchpad.net/keystone) and properly configure keystone to provide endpoints for other openstack components, then edit the keystone endpoint in openstack-dashboard/local/local_settings.py to point to that endpoint.

If you're just trying to demo/proof of concept openstack with a dashboard, check out the "I want OpenStack (all of it)" section for instructions on how to set up an openstack "all in one" box that gives a pretty good feel for how openstack and the dashboard work. Those instructions are best run in a virtual machine or on a box you do not care about, as they are pretty invasive for a system.

That "i want everything" section is part of the keystone documentation, btw.

Thank you very much Mark, really appreciate your response. Yes I just wanted to try out Openstack out of the box. I just found the section "I want OpenStack (all of it)". I will give it a try. Thanks again.
