The updated documentation for Designate is here:


The readthedocs version was abandoned a while ago, it was taken down by the Designate maintainers but appears to have returned.

Refer to

Just to test designate, as a first step, I installed everything in a single virtual machine.
The config file is exactly the same one than provided by http://designate.readthedocs.org/en/latest/getting-started.html#development-environment (except for property state_path with value /var/lib/designate). It looks like this file configures a sqlite database. Perhaps tomorrow I will try with MySQL instead of sqlite, but I also tried other official guideline that was using bind and mysql and it also failed in the same step. So, I'm not sure if it is some type of conflict with RHEL6.5, or the latest sql scripts have some bug.
