DevStack and XenServer
To get started, you first you need to install XenServer or XCP on a physical machine.
Then there are two possible ways forward:
- Create your own Ubuntu PV VM on your XenServer, set VIRT_DRIVER=xenserver, and then run stack.sh
- Use the readme in tools/xen to build an Ubuntu PV VM for you
There is also a script which may help automate devstack installation on XenServer hosts (or other XenAPI-based hosts such as XCP hosts): https://raw.github.com/citrix-openstack/qa/master/install-devstack-xen.sh
Installing DevStack on your own Ubuntu paravirtualized VM
This is not really heavily tested, you are probably best using the approach above.
- The VM must be running in PV mode (/sys/hypervisor/uuid is needed)
- It must be on the same hypervisor as the one you are managing
