Verify the cloud

We’ll now verify that the cloud is working by creating a test VM and connecting to it over SSH.

Create a VM

Create a Jammy amd64 VM called ‘jammy-1’:

openstack server create \
   --image jammy-amd64 --flavor m1.micro --key-name mykey --network int_net \

Assign a floating IP address

Request and assign a floating IP address to the new VM:

FLOATING_IP=$(openstack floating ip create -f value -c floating_ip_address ext_net)

openstack server add floating ip jammy-1 $FLOATING_IP

Log in to the VM

Log in to the new VM:

ssh -i ~/tutorial/id_mykey ubuntu@$FLOATING_IP

Congratulations, you have a working OpenStack cloud!

Advance to the final step: Access the dashboard.
