Launch an instance on OpenStack.


Optionally include information on preparing the test environment

  1. Follow QA:Testcase_download_and_register_tty_images_with_OpenStack

How to test

Launch an instance of one of the images downloaded and registered in the previous test case.

$> cd ~/novacreds
$> . ./novarc  # note if the address of the host changes (like restarting a DHCP VM) you'll first need to edit this file
$> euca-run-instances ami-tty --kernel aki-tty --ramdisk ari-tty -k nova_key

Expected Results

Verify that the instance has started.

$> euca-describe-instances 
RESERVATION	r-d8wpvydq	rbryant	default
INSTANCE	i-00000003	ami-00000003	pending	nova_key (rbryant, f16)	0		m1.small	2011-10-17T20:31:05Z	nova	aki-00000001	ari-00000002
$> sudo virsh list
 Id Name                 State
 1 instance-00000003    running

Try SSHing into the instance:

$> cd ~/novacreds
$> ssh -i nova_key.priv root@

Get conosle output:

$> euca-get-console-output i-00000003

Finally, terminate the instance:

$> euca-terminate-instances i-00000003
