Tacker Installation Guide

1) Pull devstack repo for stable kilo branch

git clone -b stable/kilo https://github.com/openstack-dev/devstack

3) A sample local.conf is placed at https://github.com/stackforge/tacker/blob/master/devstack/samples/local.conf.example. Copy the local.conf to devstack root directory and customize it based on your environment settings. Update the HOST_IP to the IP address of VM or host where you are running tacker.

Note 1: Ensure local.conf file has the "enable_plugin tacker" line.

Note 2: For running tacker service with devstack on physical hosts, a small mysql backport fix is required. To fix copy the local.sh script from https://github.com/stackforge/tacker/blob/master/devstack/samples/local.sh.mysql_fix to devstack root directory as local.sh file. Change the file mode of local.sh file to execution mode as 'chmod +x local.sh'. This fix is required only if you are running devstack Kilo release and not master.

4) Run stack.sh

Tacker Usage Guide

1) Sample TOSCA YAML files are placed in https://github.com/stackforge/tacker/tree/master/devstack/samples. A simple set of vnfd-create, vnf-create and vnf-update commands are shown below.

tacker vnfd-create --name ${VNFD_NAME} --vnfd-file ${VNFD_TOSCA_YAML-FILE}

tacker vnf-create --name vnf-name --vnfd-id ${VNFD_ID}

tacker vnf-update --config "${CONFIG_DATA_YAML} ${VNFD_ID}

2) If command-line tacker works fine, try out Tacker using Horizon (NFV left menu entry)
