Add trove to the installation guide.

Problem description

The installation guide does not include trove, but trove packages are available in the distros’ repositories. Essential documents also already support trove:

Proposed change

Add the following trove content to the installation guide:


Working OpenStack environment with at least Compute, Image Service, Identity.

  • Backup and restore, add Object Storage.
  • Provision datastores on block-storage volumes, add Block Storage.


Install required packages.

Source and create trove user.

Set OpenStack service URLs and RabbitMQ values in trove.conf, trove-taskmanager.conf, and trove-conductor.conf.

Set correct api-paste.ini file values for auth_uri, identity_uri, admin_user, admin_password, admin_tenant_name, signing_dir.

Edit trove.conf for default datastore, network label, regex, and API information.

Edit trove-taskmanager.conf to connect to the OpenStack Compute service.

Prepare the trove admin database.

Initialize database and create datastore.

Create a trove image.

Update the datastore to use the new image.

Register trove with keystone.

To deal with Ubuntu package bug - change the service startup scripts to use the correct conf files.
