Launch an instance on OpenStack.
Optionally include information on preparing the test environment
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 -a $ACCESS_KEY -s $SECRET_KEY
Verify that the instance has started.
$> euca-describe-instances -a $ACCESS_KEY -s $SECRET_KEY RESERVATION r-d8wpvydq rbryant default INSTANCE i-00000001 ami-00000003 10.0.0.2 10.0.0.2 pending nova_key (rbryant, f16) 0 m1.small 2011-10-17T20:31:05Z nova aki-00000001 ari-00000002
It may take a while to transition from the pending to the running state, as reported by euca-describe-instances
$> sudo virsh list Id Name State ---------------------------------- 1 instance-00000001 running
Get console output and ensure instance is fully started
$> euca-get-console-output i-00000001 -a $ACCESS_KEY -s $SECRET_KEY
Try SSH-ing into the instance:
$> cd ~/novacreds $> ssh -i nova_key.priv -o UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null firstname.lastname@example.org
Check for new errors in the logs:
$> grep -i error /var/log/nova/*.log
- We use
/dev/nullfor known hosts because the fingerprints associated with these IPs will change when you start over with your testing; updating known hosts gets annoying
- You've probably got a stale dnsmasq process around if you see:
dnsmasq: failed to create listening socket for 10.0.0.1: Address already in use
