Hi Rinaldo,

sorry about the trouble you're having in getting this to work!
If I got this one right, the original requirement was...

I have some tasks that need to run on different types of agents.

for that, I think you can use either (or both) of `roles` and `attributes` (see the Configuration
doc [0] for more info).

If you would like to run a 0.24 Mesos on your Mac for testing, you could use the Mesosphere
published packages[1] or, if Vagrant is more your thing, feel free to "take inspiration" form

Finally, to build on OSX, you'll need to install libsvn-1 as described in [3].

I'm afraid I don't know enough about Dynamic Reservation to really be able to help here; but
I suspect that, if you run without authentication enabled, it will accept any principal (did
you try that already? what error did you get?)

Feel free to drop me a line if you're still having trouble.

[3] (see the OSX section; in particular:
`$ brew install autoconf automake libtool subversion maven`)

HI Rinaldo,

I think that you can use dynamic reservation feature to achieve this: You can launch your
tasks after reservation succeeds.  Actually, all of the dynamic reservation feature with endpoint
has been finished except ACL part, so you can use this feature now if you do not care ACL


Hi Guangya,

I have bene trying to get dynamic reservations to work. I downloaded the latest from git and
created a small environment on OS X 10.10. I am trying to use reservations and I am not making
much progress.  I tried to get it to work without authentication and was unable to. I used
the ANY option and it still required a principal.  I am unable to configure the master to
work without authentication.  Do you have some simple configs for starting a master with no
authentication required so that it can be used to set dynamic reservations.

The output below is for authentication. I tried to authenticate from a slave and it failed
with a coredump.

I start mesos like this: —ip=nnn,nnn,nnn,nnn --work_dir=/var/lib/mesos --acls=$BASE/acls --credentials=$BASE/credentials

bash-3.2# cat attributes/acls
  "register_frameworks": [
      "principals": { "type": "mesos-mach5-beta" },
      "roles": { "values": "ANY" }
  "run_tasks": [
      "principals": { "values": "ANY" },
      "users": { "values": "ANY" }
  "shutdown_frameworks": [
      "principals": { "values": "mesos-mach5-beta" },
      "framework_principals": { "values": "ANY" }

bash-3.2# cat attributes/credentials
  "credentials": [
      "principal": "mesos-mach5-beta",
      "secret": "password"

When I try the following I am told I am not authorized.

   I have some tasks that need to run on different types of agents. I don’t want the tasks
to run unless I am going to have all the resources.  Can someone suggest how I could accomplish
that with mesos.  I read about reservations here:

   I could iterate over all the resources I need and if I get them proceed.

   Is that the only way to do it?

   Any idea when coming soon will be available?

/reserve (Coming Soon)

Suppose we want to reserve 8 CPUs and 4096 MB of RAM for the ads role on a slave with id=<slave_id>.
We send an HTTP POST request to the /reserve HTTP endpoint like so:
