DevStack Formula

OpenStack®_Logo_2016.svg

Recently I started to get my hands dirty with learning more about DevStack which is a quick way to deploy OpenStack to test with. As with many of open source projects like OpenStack, OpenShift and Cloud Foundry I find the documentation often to be sorely lacking on specifics. In some cases I cannot explain why, in others it’s because they want you to use the paid version instead.

My stepup is on Ubuntu 18.04.1 and the local.conf that I used is below. All I can say is that this worked for me to just get it installed. How exactly functional after that I have not yet gotten to but hopefully this helps someone get started as well.

Note you will likely need to change the FLOATING_RANGE to match your network. The documentation is otherwise decent but I’ll include a few more getting started commands below:

Getting Started

sudo useradd -s /bin/bash -d /opt/stack -m stack

echo “stack ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL” | sudo tee /etc/sudoers.d/stack

sudo su – stack

git clone https://git.openstack.org/openstack-dev/devstack

cd devstack

Create the local.conf listed below

Then lastly run ./stack

# Check out from repos every time stack.sh is run
# This is optional and can be changed to no.

RECLONE=yes

# By default `stack.sh` will only install Python packages if no versi# on is currently installed, or the current version does not match a # specified requirement. If `PIP_UPGRADE` is set to `True` then exist# ing #required Python packages will be upgraded to the most recent v# ersion #that matches requirements. This is generally recommended,  # as most of # OpenStack is tested on latest packages, rather than ol# der versions.# The default is False.

PIP_UPGRADE=TRUE

# host ip

HOST_IP=127.0.0.1

# Change the FLOATING_RANGE to whatever IPs VM is working in. In NAT # mode it is the subnet VMware Fusion provides, in bridged mode it is# your local network. But only use the top end of the network by usin# g a /27 and starting at the 224 octet.

FLOATING_RANGE=10.0.1.224/27

# Logging

# By default ``stack.sh`` output only goes to the terminal where it runs.  It can be configured to additionally log to a file by setting ``LOGFILE`` to the full path of the destination log file.  A timestamp will be appended to the given name.

LOGFILE=$DEST/logs/stack.sh.log

# Old log files are automatically removed after 7 days to keep things neat.  Change the number of days by setting ``LOGDAYS``.

LOGDAYS=2

# basic syslog settings

SYSLOG=True
SYSLOG_HOST=$HOST_IP
SYSLOG_PORT=516
