Re: [Xen-users] XCP & Openstack

Hi Todd,

Thanks! Yup, that Xen cookbook is actually where I'm about to start from... with a combination of the knowledge from the other various pages.

Ah, got it about the plugins, good hint there.

One question though, do you know how to make sense of the 100 some-odd identical looking RPMs in http://downloads.xen.org/XCP/openstack/openstack-xen-plugins/ ?

Could I ask though what you mean when you say that the instructions at  http://wiki.openstack.org/XenServerDevelopment  are for development?

I mean, other than that the configuration details and network setup, etc, would all need to be changed.. is there anything in particular that setup is doing that would be otherwise undesirable?

No, this is for a development environment as well. For a production
environment your going to want look into things like Chef, Puppet,
Crowbar, etc.

here is the chef cookbook for Xen+OpenStack:

Instead of having to pull the nova source and copy the xen-api plugins
by coping them into place (e.g.
you can instead just install the RPM on dom0.

Thank you for your efforts and documentation. I also wanted to mention
that we also have xcp-toolstack branch for using xcp-api packages on
Debian/Ubuntu (see
