Installing OpenStack Image Service


Installation of the latest OpenStack Image Service is simply achieved by using the packages provided from the Ubuntu Cloud Archive repositories, which have been packaged for our Ubuntu 14.04 LTS GNU/Linux installation.

Getting ready

To begin with, ensure you're logged in to our OpenStack Controller host where OpenStack Image Service will be installed.

To log in to our OpenStack Controller host that was created using Vagrant, issue the following command:

vagrant ssh controller

Ensure that our Ubuntu 14.04 LTS release is using the Ubuntu Cloud Archive that has the packages required for the Juno release. For more information, visit http://bit.ly/OpenStackCookbookCloudArchive.
