Fedora 27

We’re going to be using Fedora 27 on a cloud server for this installation.


  • Port 9000 must be open and accessible from the Internet so that GitHub can communicate with the Zuul web service.

Login to your environment

Since we’ll be using a cloud image for Fedora 27, our login user will be fedora which will also be the staging user for installation of Zuul and Nodepool.

To get started, ssh to your machine as the fedora user:

ssh fedora@<ip_address>

Environment Setup

First, make sure the system packages are up to date, and then install some packages which will be required later. Most of Zuul’s binary dependencies are handled by the bindep program, but a few additional dependencies are needed to install bindep, and for other commands which we will use in these instructions.

sudo dnf update -y
sudo systemctl reboot
sudo dnf install git redhat-lsb-core python3 python3-pip python3-devel make gcc openssl-devel python-openstackclient -y
pip3 install --user bindep

Install Zookeeper

Nodepool uses Zookeeper to keep track of information about the resources it manages, and it’s also how Zuul makes requests to Nodepool for nodes.

sudo dnf install zookeeper -y
sudo cp /etc/zookeeper/zoo_sample.cfg /etc/zookeeper/zoo.cfg
sudo systemctl start zookeeper.service
sudo systemctl status zookeeper.service
sudo systemctl enable zookeeper.service
