While installing from the Fuel ISO image, I always get an error that none of the repositories are available under the 'Bootstrap Image' option even though the 'DNS & Hostname' and 'Time Sync' options seem to be OK. Am I mis-configuring something?

You may skip bootstrap image build process (there is an option for that on Bootstrap image page) and build bootstrap image after fuel will be fully configured with command:

fuel-bootstrap build  --activate

It should stop complain about problem with accessing external repositories inside fuel menu. Fuel OPNFV was modified to by default build bootstrap image from local repositories. Do you use in this environment http proxy? If yes then this needs to be also configured on Fuel to properly fetch packages.

Ok.. thanks for the info... was going to create a local repo regardless... also, no proxy.

Oh, turns out if you save the settings (which will give an error) and then quit without saving, it will still work just fine...

Can you show me the screen shot that you are getting? that is strange indeed.

Can you tell me the following: What ISO are you using (stable B-release or master?) - maybe show me the link you fetched it from? For your FUEL master, is this a VM or a BareMetal machine? How many Network cards are you using?

Can you show me your DNS settings and Time Sync screen shots?

Lastly, have you tried picking Shell Login and doing a nslookup on the command line to verify that you are actually routing out?

* I am using a bare metal machine. It has 4 network interfaces but I only have one enabled and connected to a linksys router to get to the internet via NAT.
