Install via Devstack

Install via Devstack

The Devstack supports installation from different code branch by specifying <branch-name> below. If there is no preference, it is recommended to install Tacker from master branch, i.e. the <branch-name> is master. If pike branch is the target branch, the <branch-name> is stable/pike.

  1. Download DevStack:
$ git clone https://git.openstack.org/openstack-dev/devstack -b <branch-name>
$ cd devstack
  1. Enable tacker related Devstack plugins in local.conf file:

First, the local.conf file needs to be created by manual or copied from Tacker Repo [1] and renamed to local.conf. We have two Tacker configuration installation files. First, it is the all-in-one mode that installs full Devstack environment including Tacker in one PC or Laptop. Second, it is the standalone mode which only will install a standalone Tacker environment with some mandatory OpenStack services.

2.1. All-in-one mode

The local.conf file of all-in-one mode from [2] is shown as below:

After saving the local.conf, we can run stack.sh in the terminal to start setting up:

$ ./stack.sh
