How to set up devstack, a single server instance for developing OpenStack

OpenStack is an open-source cloud framework for building on-demand Infrastructure as a Service.

This tutorial in essence distills from this two-page set of instructions for setting up devstack on a single server primarily for use by developers.

I used a DELL 1950 with 8 GB of RAM, internal hard-drives and two 1000 MB NICs.

Download and Set Up Ubuntu

  1. Download Ubuntu 11.10 from here and burn to DVD
  2. Boot the server from the DVD and start the install. I installed the BASE SYSTEM and only one optional package, the OpenSSH Server.
  3. I named my server "ubuntu-server"
  4. I configured eth0 with a static ip address of This will be important as the HOST_IP address of devstack.
  5. Create a user named "stack".
  6. Log in as "stack"

    See next page for how to Install Devstack...
