SmartStack = SmartOS + OpenStack (Part 2)February 15th, 2012 • 2 Comments
This is the second post in this series. Part 1 can be found here.
After setting up nova on SmartOS you should be able to launch the nova-compute service – Andy actually managed to get the nova-compute instance up and running:
./bin/nova-compute --connection_type=fake --sql_connection=mysql://root:firstname.lastname@example.org/nova --fake_rabbit 2012-02-15 10:26:32,205 WARNING nova.virt.libvirt.firewall [-] Libvirt module could not be loaded. NWFilterFirewall will not work correctly. 2012-02-15 10:26:32,374 AUDIT nova.service [-] Starting compute node (version 2012.1-LOCALBRANCH:LOCALREVISION) 2012-02-15 10:26:33,099 INFO nova.rpc [-] Connected to AMQP server on localhost:5672
Note that for now we will use a fake RabbitMQ connection. The connection to the MySQL server however is mandatory.
This is the first step in plan to get OpenStack running on SmartOS. Next step will be to look into integration vmadm as a driver in OpenStack. The overall Ideas we have can be found in this slideset on google docs.
