This host will be used to run client tools against the OpenStack environment created. If you are using the accompanying Vagrant environment, as described in the Preface, you can use the
controller node. This node has the
python-swiftclient package that provides the
swift command-line client.
If you created this node with Vagrant, you can execute the following command:
vagrant ssh controller
