This document helps you deploy OpenStack Grizzly for development purposes with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (using the Ubuntu Cloud Archive).


The Grizzly version is available on the current Ubuntu development series, which is 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) and the most recent LTS (Long Term Support) version which is 12.04 (Precise Pangolin), via the Ubuntu Cloud Archive. At this time, there are not packages available for 12.10.


The Grizzly version is not in Debian Wheezy official repositories. However, it's possible to run OpenStack from gplhost repository.

We are going to install a three-node setup with one controller, one network and one compute node.

Of course, you can setup as many computes nodes as you want. Use this document to learn to install a testing infrastructure.

The OpenStack configuration files contain several commented options. These options specify the default setting. You only need to uncomment these lines if you are changing the setting to a non-default value. Additionally, the only options that will be shown throughout this guide are options that are being modified from their default value.

Finally, please be aware that the use of password as a password throughout this guide is for simplicity and testing purposes. Please ensure you use proper passwords when configuring your OpenStack environment in production.

At this time, this guide does not cover floating IPs.
