This page is describing how to quickly deploy an OpenStack by using the development tool DevStack on a single machine. Xen Project via libvirt is going to be used.

This how-to describes the steps took on an Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Little changes should be required to do the same on the other distribution supported by devstack.

How to

We are going to install the Xen Project Hypervisor then setup devstack.

  • Install the Xen Project software:
sudo apt-get install xen-hypervisor-4.4-amd64
sudo reboot
  • Get devstack:
git clone https://git.openstack.org/openstack-dev/devstack
  • Configure devstack:

Edit local.conf in the devstack working repository. (For more options, take a look at DevStack Configuration.)

RABBIT_PASSWORD=$ADMIN_PASSWORD
SERVICE_PASSWORD=$ADMIN_PASSWORD

# Useful logging options for debugging:
DEST=/opt/stack
LOGFILE=$DEST/logs/stack.sh.log
SCREEN_LOGDIR=$DEST/logs/screen

# This is a Xen Project host:
LIBVIRT_TYPE=xen
  • Run devstack:

This might take a while.

./stack.sh
  • That's it! You are done!
