Verify operation

Verify operation of the ec2-api service.


Perform these commands on the controller node.

  1. Source the admin project credentials to gain access to admin-only CLI commands:

    $ . openrc admin admin
  2. List service components to verify successful launch and registration of each process:

    $ openstack service list
  3. Install aws cli.

    # pip install awscli --upgrade --user
  4. Create configuration file for aws cli in your home directory ~/.aws/config or by “aws configure” command:

    aws_access_key_id = 1b013f18d5ed47ae8ed0fbb8debc036b
    aws_secret_access_key = 9bbc6f270ffd4dfdbe0e896947f41df3
    region = RegionOne

    Change the aws_access_key_id and aws_secret_acces_key above to the values appropriate for your cloud (can be obtained by “openstack ec2 credentials list” command).

  5. Run aws cli commands using new EC2 API endpoint URL (can be obtained from keystone with the new port 8788) like this:

    aws --endpoint-url ec2 describe-images
