In the previous post, we described the installation of an OpenStack lab on a single (physical) host. In this post, we will continue.
First, we will perform some checks and see if our OpenStack environment works as expected. I will also show some useful commands for troubleshooting, how to start and stop your environment.
We will also have a look at the GUI components and finally we will create our first stack.
Does it work as expected?
To check the result of our work, from our “normal” user account logon tot the oslcontroller:
$ ssh – A root@oslcontroller
From there run the following command to check the status of OpenStack:
You will get a very detailed overview as OpenStack admin
# source keystonerc_admin # openstack-status
