setting up an openstack-installer test environment

openstack-installer is a data oriented replacement of puppet-openstack. The following HOWTO runs some basic tests on vagrant virtual machines that are preserved for introspection with:

# vagrant status
control_basevm           running
# vagrant ssh control_basevm
vagrant@control-server:~$ ps -ax | grep keystone
15020 ?        Ss     0:01 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/keystone-all

The control_basevm runs the horizon dashboard:

The base operating system is Ubuntu precise.

apt-get install linux-image-3.8.0-27-generic linux-headers-3.8.0-27-generic
apt-get install vagrant
git clone
cd openstack-installer

Make sure there is more than 20GB of free disk space and more than 16GB of RAM

root@bm0012:~/openstack-installer# grep MemTotal /proc/meminfo
MemTotal:       32847200 kB
root@bm0012:~/openstack-installer# df -h .
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda2        29G  2.5G   25G  10% /

Run the tests

test_type=openstack_multi \
test_mode=basic_tests \
operatingsystem=ubuntu \
openstack_version=grizzly bash -x tests/

When successful the output must end with:

+ vagrant ssh build -c 'ping -c 2;exit $?'
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_req=1 ttl=63 time=29.0 ms

rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 20.346/24.698/29.050/4.352 ms
+ exit 0

print hiera values

export RUBYLIB=/etc/puppet/modules/hiera_data_mapper/lib
hiera \
  --debug \
  --config /etc/puppet/hiera.yaml \
  operatingsystem=redhat \
  scenario=2_role nova::verbose

introspection and debug

Assuming the default values set in the repository have not been overriden:

root@bm0012:~/openstack-installer# vagrant ssh control_basevm
vagrant@control-server:~$ keystone --os-token keystone_admin_token \
   --os-endpoint= \
|                id                |   name   |
| 602adb93e03842c5900e177562cd5312 |  Member  |
| 9fe2ff9ee4384b1894a90878d3e92bab | _member_ |
| 2d5c66442eb64ceb9cfec3859bf301c3 |  admin   |

To get access to the horizon panel from the host, use a ssh based tunel. The ssh to control_basevm is bound to the port 2201.

# ssh -p 2201 -L 8080:localhost:80 localhost
# nc localhost 8080
GET /horizon/

To use nova from the command line when logged in the control_basevm:

root@control-server:~$ source <(sudo cat /root/openrc)
root@control-server:~$ nova keypair-list
| Name       | Fingerprint                                     |
| key_cirros | 54:d6:57:35:63:3e:06:a5:c7:42:e7:2a:f2:12:20:e7 |
