After upgrading from juno to kilo on Ubuntu 14.04, the script/program named "openstack" seems to be absent. Prior to the upgrade, juno seemed to be running fine. The first of many steps in the install manual that use the "openstack" script/program is the step 'openstack service create --type identity --description "OpenStack Identity" keystone' on page 38 of the 5/6/2015 kilo install manual for Ubuntu 14.04.

Does the "openstack" script/program replace the keystone CLI ( script/program)?

I performed the upgrade on all physical machines by doing the following all from page 28 of same manual:

# apt-get install ubuntu-cloud-keyring
# echo "deb" "trusty-updates/kilo main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cloudarchive-kilo.list
# apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

A lot of items were installed/ updated but not the "openstack" script/program.

I could not find instructions on upgrading from juno to kilo elsewhere.

The openstack script/program is designed to replace the many different cli scripts/programs as I understand it. Additionally, I would caution against running dist-upgrade, apt-get update should suffice. The openstack script/program can be installed separately. I recommend using pip to do so.

Thank you codebauss. pip got me the missing script/program, openstack. Additionally, in looking for instructions on pip, the link at at confirms codebauss's understanding, keystone is deprecated.

Yes the python-openstackclient will, note will, replace the other CLI clients completely in the future.

You need to apt-get install python-openstackclient

It tells you to install this utility in the guide.

apt-get install keystone python-openstackclient apache2 libapache2-mod-wsgi memcached python-memcache
