Devstack is a script used primarily for upstream OpenStack development. This wiki page documents usage information for devstack on Fedora.
Getting Devstack for Fedora
Devstack does not currently officially support Fedora. However, there is a patch that adds support for Fedora 16 which you can find here. Optionally, you can grab a version from github that includes support for using Qpid as the messaging system instead of RabbitMq: russellb's github repo.
In either case, start by cloning the upstream devstack repo.
$ git clone git://github.com/openstack-dev/devstack.git
Using the patch from gerrit
Go to the gerrit page for the patch and find the Download section. It will provide a git command to use to get the latest version of the patch.
Using russellb's github repo
$ git remote add russellb git://github.com/russellb/devstack.git $ git remote update $ git checkout -b fedora-support russellb/fedora-support
Devstack allows you to create a
localrc file with settings specific to your environment. Creating this file isn't strictly necessary, but it's likely you'll want to use it at some point. Here are some options commonly used that are worth noting:
Set this option if you are using the version from russellb's github repo and would like to use Qpid instead of RabbitMQ.
By default, devstack assumes your primary network interface is
eth0. Ethernet and other network device naming has changed in recent versions of Fedora. To see what your machine actually uses for a network device, run ifconfig and use the device that your machine uses to talk to the outside world. It is likely that this is
HOST_IP_IFACE=em1 PUBLIC_INTERFACE=em1 VLAN_INTERFACE=em1 FLAT_INTERFACE=em1
When creating the stack deployment for the first time, you are going to see prompts for multiple passwords. Your results will be stored in the localrc file. If you wish to byp[ass this, and provide the passwords up front, add in the following lines with your own password:
MYSQL_PASSWORD=badpassword SERVICE_TOKEN=badpassword SERVICE_PASSWORD=badpassword ADMIN_PASSWORD=badpassword
To have devstack automatically load custom images, set the
IMAGE_URLS option. If you're using russellb's version, you can have devstack load dabpb's Fedora 16 image:
If you would like to load the Cirros images devstack uses by default, as well as the Fedora 16 image, use:
For a list of other variables that can be specified, including ones that allow you specify custom git repos and branches to use for testing, see the
To run devstack, you just run the
Using the environment
Once the stack is up and running, you can use it like you would any other OpenStack deployment. Devstack includes a couple of files that will populate your environment with the needed variables for various tools to work:
$ . ./openrc $ nova list
$ . ./eucarc $ euca-describe-instances
Running the devstack exercises
Devstack includes a set of exercise scripts to do some basic testing of the running stack. These tests are used by jenkins to gate commits to various OpenStack projects. To run them, run the
To see a list of tests:
$ ls exercises/ boot_from_volume.sh bundle.sh client-args.sh client-env.sh euca.sh floating_ips.sh swift.sh volumes.sh
