Juniper Alpha native install fails

I tried to install juniper alpha1 on a clean Ubuntu VM on VirtualBox. Here is the error I received.

A post was merged into an existing topic: How to upgrade to Open edX Juniper?

@mikedkelly Has this error persisted? It seems like a network connectivity issue.

I will try again, but I am installing to a local machine and the address 169.254.169.254 is not part of my local network. I am suspicious that the address has been hard-coded to the install script and is invalid.

This because you are outside AWS. You should disable anything related to AWS in the playbooks.

@mikedkelly 169.254.169.254 is an internal AWS address. It doesn’t appear in the edx-configuration repo at all, so I’m not sure where it’s coming from. When you get a chance, if you can pastebin the install log, we can take a look.

Here is a link to the install log.

I created the following config.yml file for the install:
EDXAPP_LMS_BASE: “lms.juniper.org
EDXAPP_CMS_BASE: “studio.lms.juniper.org

and subsequently added the following to /etc/hosts:
127.0.0.1 lms.juniper.org
127.0.0.1 studio.lms.juniper.org

Thanks, that’s very helpful. I’ve created CRI-176 to track it.

There’s an ansible setting called AWS_GATHER_FACTS that controls whether to rely on the internal AWS information. That setting of course is influenced by other settings, so I’m not sure the best way to disable it.

I’m looking into it.
