devstack is now installed by default in /home/stack/devstack
Copy the sample localerc to the root devstack directory
1. stack@ubuntu-server:~$cp /home/stack/devstack/samples/localerc /home/stack/devstack
Edit localerc so that it looks like this. In the example below, all passwords are set to password
# Sample ``localrc`` for user-configurable variables in ``stack.sh``
# NOTE: Copy this file to the root ``devstack`` directory for it to work properl
# ``localrc`` is a user-maintained setings file that is sourced at the end of
# ``stackrc``. This gives it the ability to override any variables set in ``stac
# Also, most of the settings in ``stack.sh`` are written to only be set if no
# value has already been set; this lets ``localrc`` effectively override the
# default values.
# This is a collection of some of the settings we have found to be useful
# in our DevStack development environments. Additional settings are described
# in http://devstack.org/localrc.html
# These should be considered as samples and are unsupported DevStack code.
# Minimal Contents
# While ``stack.sh`` is happy to run without ``localrc``, devlife is better when
# there are a few minimal variables set:
# If the ``*_PASSWORD`` variables are not set here you will be prompted to enter
# values for them by ``stack.sh``.
# HOST_IP should be set manually for best results. It is auto-detected during the
# first run of ``stack.sh`` but often is indeterminate on later runs due to the IP
# being moved from an Ethernet interface to a bridge on the host. Setting it here
# also makes it available for ``openrc`` to include when setting ``OS_AUTH_URL``.
# ``HOST_IP`` is not set by default.
# Set DevStack Install Directory
# The DevStack install directory is set by the ``DEST`` variable. By setting it
# early in ``localrc`` you can reference it in later variables. The default value
# is ``/opt/stack``. It can be useful to set it even though it is not changed from
# the default value.
# Using milestone-proposed branches
# Uncomment these to grab the milestone-proposed branches from the repos:
# Swift is now used as the back-end for the S3-like object store. If Nova's
# objectstore (``n-obj`` in ``ENABLED_SERVICES``) is enabled, it will NOT
# run if Swift is enabled. Setting the hash value is required and you will
# be prompted for it if Swift is enabled so just set it to something already:
# For development purposes the default of 3 replicas is usually not required.
# Set this to 1 to save some resources:
# The data for Swift is stored in the source tree by default (``$DEST/swift/data``)
# and can be moved by setting ``SWIFT_DATA_DIR``. The directory will be created
# if it does not exist.
Now run stack.sh to perform a first time configuration and start the cloud controller

Horizon is now available at http://10.202.181.21/
Keystone is serving at http://10.202.181.21:5000/v2.0/
Examples on using novaclient command line is in exercise.sh
The default users are: admin and demo
The password: password
This is your host ip: 10.202.181.21
stack.sh completed in 966 seconds.
OpenStack is up!
- Type http://10.202.181.21 in your browser
- Login as "admin", "password" (or whatever you chose for the password above).
- Click the "projects" tab
- Click "Instances and volumes"
- Click "Launch instance" and give it name "test1"
- Congratulations, you now have a Linux instance/virtual machine, running within your OpenStack cloud!
