Thanks for getting in touch.

Perccli is used when you have Dell machines. Unfortunately, this is
proprietary software, and we cannot redistribute it.

I've checked the openstack-cluster-installer-build-live-image and
indeed, it had:


instead of

if [ "${LIVE_IMAGE_INSTALL_PERCCLI}" = "yes" ] ; then

We were not affected because we do use and install perccli. This is now
fixed, and you should be good to go. Please reinstall your OCI server,
and it should be ok.

Now, if you want some help over IRC, my nick there is zigo, just address
your messages to me and I'll reply quickly. Also please make sure you
just stay for long enough to receive an answer.

Also Bullseye is Debian 11, not 10. :)
Last, we maintain a single branch of OCI for all OpenStack versions,
though currently the most tested version is Victoria.
