I'm trying to deploy bosh on an OpenStack instance.

I am following the directions from

bosh-init will deploy the instance on Openstack; it will then proceed to
recompile everything on that instance, and fails after updating:

Updating instance 'bosh/0'... Finished (00:00:13)
Waiting for instance 'bosh/0' to be running... Failed (00:05:01)
Failed deploying (00:17:34)

Stopping registry... Finished (00:00:00)
Cleaning up rendered CPI jobs... Finished (00:00:00)

Command 'deploy' failed:
Received non-running job state: 'failing'

The somewhat useful messages in the log are:

Did I miss a step?

Thank you!


PS I am running bosh-init from a CentOS 6 system. I found out that I had
to open up ingress traffic to port 25555 in order for bosh to work, which
was not mentioned on the instructions. But I am wondering if I missed more
things to set up.
