I have an all in one openstack node running which i created using packstack and i want to shift this node from my home where i set it up at ip to my college where the ip is Now how should i make this migration? And I have to set up this cloud in college behind a proxy server and cyberroam.

I am using Fedora 20 with RDO packstack installation of openstack (ice-house).

PS: I am aware that openstack does not automatically update its end point ip's.

It's certainly possible to move your cloud, but it's going to be a lot of work.

You'll need to update all of your endpoint URLs manually, either by editing the database directly or with a series of keystone endpoint-delete/keystone endpoint-create operations.

You would then need to iterate through all your configuration files and update any ip addresses that appear in those files. Just as an example, in nova.conf this probably requires changing:

  • rabbit_hosts
  • glance_api_servers
  • metadata_host neutron_url
  • neutron_admin_auth_url
  • novncproxy_base_url
  • vncserver_proxyclient_address
  • sql_connection auth_uri

...and that's just in one configuration file.

I think that re-deploying your cloud would ultimately be a much cleaner solution.
