• OpenStackClient (aka OSC) is a command-line client for OpenStack that brings the command set for Compute, Identity, Image, Object Storage and Block Storage APIs together in a single shell with a uniform command structure.

NoVNC or Spicehtml

There are two options:

  • novnc (default)

  • spice

The configuration switch is in environments/kolla/configuration.yml

nova_console: novnc/spice

This change have to be done before running loadbalancer deployment. Otherwise reconfigure loadbalancer.

osism-kolla reconfigure loadbalancer

Deploying Openstack Services

The deployment of a single Openstack service is done using Kolla via the osism-kolla wrapper.

$ osism-kolla deploy SERVICE

Depending on the available bandwidth, it may be a good idea to pull the Docker images in advance prior to deployment. This can be done with osism-kolla pull SERVICE. Please also note, that you might encounter session timeouts as the system hardening role enforces these. To prevent logouts push SPACE sometimes or use a multiplexer like screen or tmux.
