Additional information:
 * Time synchronization installation was skipped. Please note that unsynchronized time on server instances might be problem for some OpenStack components.
 * To use the command line tools source the file /root/keystonerc_admin created on 10.16.46.104
 * To use the console, browse to http://10.16.46.104/dashboard
 * The installation log file is available at: /var/tmp/packstack/20130205-0955/openstack-setup.log

You can also generate an answer file and use it on other systems

[root@rhc-06 ~]# packstack --gen-answer-file=answerfile

Be careful, if your system is subscribed to Red Hat Network’s classic entitlement packstack will register the systems via subscription-manager (certificate based entitlement). This can cause some issues if you already subscribed the system and added the OpenStack  channels via RHN.
