OpenStack Installation on Ubuntu 16.04 with DevStack


There are many ways you can create or manage Virtual Machines for your numerous lab environments.
I can go for traditional approach ether VMware Workstation or Virtual Box but hold on, i thought why don't i go for openstack images.

This guide will help you to install Openstack Standalone installation on a Ubuntu 16.04 Box.

Hope you have a good internet speed too, take my words it will work like a charm.

So first of all you must have a Linux Box with Ubuntu 16.04 OS within it and predefined scripts within DevStack will do the hard stuffs for you.

Create a user " stack " and give it sudo privileges .

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

echo "stack ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL" >> /etc/sudoers
So once you are done with the above steps, you are ready for the DevStack installation scripts.

Switch to user stack from terminal.


su - stack
Now Download Devstack.

Since we are using internet directly, we gonna download the latest version on the go from git at all.
sudo apt-get install git -y || sudo yum install -y git
git clone https://git.openstack.org/openstack-dev/devstack
cd devstack

Once downloaded, switch to devstack directory and make some required configuration changes.

Copy local.conf file to devstack root directory
stack@Linux-Maniac:~/devstack$ cp /opt/stack/devstack/samples/local.conf /opt/stack/devstack

 Change multiple passwords to one or if you can remember, keep multiple passwords for various utilities too.


stack@Linux-Maniac:~/devstack$ vim local.conf
So i had the below mentioned changes, you can make it on the same fashion too.
[[local|localrc]]
# Minimal Contents
ADMIN_PASSWORD=redhat
DATABASE_PASSWORD=$ADMIN_PASSWORD
RABBIT_PASSWORD=$ADMIN_PASSWORD
SERVICE_PASSWORD=$ADMIN_PASSWORD

Once done, save the file and toggle back to the same devstack root directory and run the final script.


stack@Linux-Maniac:~/devstack$ ./stack.sh 
The entire process can take a time from 30 Min - 1 Hour or more depending upon you network internet speed.

at the end you can see  something like that.
