Ensure that you are logged into a Ubuntu host that has access to our OpenStack environment on the
192.168.100.0/24 public network. 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

vagrant ssh controller
Ensure that you have set the following credentials (adjust the path to your certificates and key file to match your environment if not using the Vagrant environment):
