### How to test the nova-compute alone

Hi The solution we provide is just compute nodes with nova-compute support. However I was not sure how to test this solution. Please feel free to correct any mistakes: 1) Can openstack-nova-compute be run alone ?I tried to start the compute service, it seemed to wait for scheduler ? [ I had installed nova-common and compute packages. 2) I decided to test the command line by invoking nova-compute to boot VM. Howeve it complained about setting the environment -os-username OS_USERNAME] [--os-password OS_PASSWORD] [--os-tenant-name_name OS_TENANT_NAME] [--os-auth-url OS_AUTH_URL] [--os-region-name OS_REGION_NAME] [--service-type SERVICE_TYPE] [--service-name SERVICE_NAME] [--endpoint-type ENDPOINT_TYPE] [--version VERSION]

Any idea what these variables have to be set to in order to test?
