After you ./stack (you may have acluster issue):

(1)You need to check out your ceph configuration and see if everything is ok.

~/devstack$sudo ceph -s
  cluster <uuid>
  health HEALTH_OK

To check the size of your cluster:

~/devstack$ceph df

(2)If you are using vagrant you can clone the cinder repo inside your vagrant share folder and link devstack with it :

~/devstack$sudo pip install -e /vagrant/cinder

(3) Give credentials. openrc exports evironment variables used by the commands line client ‘cinder’ . This  commandline tools (cinder, glance, nova, etc) need to know where to find the services (the endpoints). They acquire a token from keystone, and then use that token to contact their respecive service. so cinder-client needs to know where keystone and cinder-api are located (ip/port/uri).

~/devstack$. openrc admin admin

(4) Screen logsare just a record of the screens initiated by DevStack but you can check them anytime during the exectution. The information provided is very useful to debug any OpenStack service.


We’ll use c-api , c-vol , c-sch for part 2.
