2013-06-09 15:19:09 -0600 commented answer Upload Snapshots to New Openstack Instance

At least for Diablo, prior to glance image-download being part of the Python command-line tool (CLP), to download images authenticated you would do something like: curl -H "X-Auth-Token:<YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN>" <GLANCE_HOST>:9292/v1/images/<IMAGE_ID> -o <OUTPUT_FILE>

Hat tip @jaypipes.

@gfidente , @tim-bell I generally prefer approaches that don't go in to the internals. I would use 'glance image-download' instead of step 2.

2013-04-30 01:00:20 -0600 answered a question How to login in newly booted instances created from images?

Having set passwords in those Ubuntu and Fedora images would make them insecure, so the common solution in cloud computing is injecting a authentication key on instance (VM) create. See http://docs.openstack.org/trunk/openstack-compute/admin/content/LaunchingInstancesusing_Dashboard.html where you associate a keypair to the instance on first boot.

You will likely also find http://docs.openstack.org/trunk/openstack-compute/admin/content/booting-a-test-image.html quite relevant. You can upload to your OpenStack cloud the tiny CirrOS test image, which displays it's password right on the screen.

For licensing code http://www.apache.org/dev/apply-license.html#new generally applies for new files and you'll need to sign the CLA https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/HowToContribute#ContributorsLicenseAgreement

2013-04-15 01:34:14 -0600 commented question How do I add copyright and Apache license to OpenStack code?

Are you modifying existing code within one of the projects? Fixing problems in existing code is generally how I would suggest getting started.

2013-04-10 13:00:32 -0600 answered a question How to upgrade from Folsom to Grizzly?

http://docs.openstack.org/trunk/openstack-ops/content/maintenance.html#upgrades has some general information.

Two threads I found interesting on openstack-dev mailing list are:

If you don't find the information you are looking for I would suggest waiting a couple of weeks until after the OpenStack Summit in Portland next week and then asking on the Operators mailing list for production upgrade tales. I'm sure people would appreciate you sharing what issues you've already encountered in your pre-prod. http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-operators

2013-04-09 18:53:06 -0600 answered a question Does Open Stack Support Citrix Xen Server 6.1?

Yes, this support was developed by Citrix since the last release of OpenStack (Folsom).

Check the blog post http://blogs.citrix.com/2012/10/10/xenserver-6-1-xcp-1-6-and-openstack-folsom/

2013-04-09 18:46:54 -0600 answered a question Attaching an external device like USB Disk

I don't know the answer, but I remember in the most recent release (Grizzly) this area getting additional attention as support for cdrom was added. Nova has a blockdevicemapping flag. Maybe you are lucky and USB is also already supported.

I see there is a blueprint and design to make this more flexible on the OpenStack wiki.
