For getting up and running quickly with OpenShift Origin, RedHat have an all-in-one VM image you can provision with Vagrant. The instructions mention to not use Vagrant 1.8.5 as there’s an issue with the SSH setup – since I already had 1.8.5 installed for some other projects, I tried anyway, and ran into issues with SSH’ing into the VM with SSH keys.
When provisioning the VM, you’ll see:
Kevins-MacBook-Pro:openshift-origin kev$ vagrant up Bringing machine 'default' up with 'virtualbox' provider... ==> default: Checking if box 'openshift/origin-all-in-one' is up to date... ==> default: Resuming suspended VM... ==> default: Booting VM... ==> default: Waiting for machine to boot. This may take a few minutes... default: SSH address: 127.0.0.1:2222 default: SSH username: vagrant default: SSH auth method: private key default: Warning: Authentication failure. Retrying... default: Warning: Authentication failure. Retrying...
The suggestions relate to switching from the ssh authentication to userid/password, by adding this to your Vagrantfile:
config.ssh.username = "vagrant" config.ssh.password = "vagrant"
I tried this, and when running vagrant up I had different errors about “SSH authentication failed”. Next I tried adding this recommendation:
config.ssh.insert_key = false
This didn’t make any difference initially, but doing a vagrant destroy, and then trying to bring it up again initially ran into the same issue, I Ctrl-C’d out and tried again and then it worked second time. I’m not sure what steps got past the ssh keys issue, but at this point I was up and running. There’s a long discussion in both the linked threads above that describe the cause of the issue, so if you’re interested take a look through those threads.
