Tired of being hassled by Cisco UCS Manager pop ups and skewed table views? Check out these simple optimization tips - #Cisco, #GUI, #Manager, #UCS
UCS Manager is used to graphically manage a Cisco UCS Domain. Because I’ve been using it for several years, I have gotten quite used to the various quirks that are presented by the user interface – such as randomly placed buttons and a slew of pop-up boxes. But, did you know that there is an …

Hello fellow 'Stackers.  Tonight's session will be #C2OS #vBrownBag will be Office Hours to review progress made up until now.  +Eric Wright is leading tonight's session, and I will be his (not-so) lovely assistant.

+Cody Bunch is still helping me with the leftover Quantum configs from last week.  If we do not finish them in time for tonight, we will post the solutions as soon as we can.

Hello #C2OS People. Even though the code isn't up on GitHub yet, we are still having the Quantum session tonight.

The Quantum setup has been a little challenging. So, I will not be able to post the code until 4PM EST today.

Let me know if you have any questions,
Trevor

Hey Everyone.  Tonight, we'll be performing the Nova Config steps again in addition to the Cinder Configs.  Here is the complete list of commands to deploy an instance on Nova after Vagrant up:

a.  Create the private network that will be used by our OpenStack Compute instances internally:
nova-manage network create privateNet \
--fixed_range_v4=10.10.<3rd Octet>.2/24 \
--network_size=20 \
--bridge_interface=eth2

    b.  Assign a floating (Public) IP address for access to the Instance:
nova-manage floating create --ip_range=172.16.<3rd Octet>.1/28

    c.  Create a keypair using Nova Client with the following commands:
nova keypair-add demo > /vagrant/demo.pem
chmod 0600 /vagrant/*.pem

    d.  Nova Security Rules to enable ping and ssh to our Instances:
nova secgroup-add-rule default tcp 22 22 0.0.0.0/0
nova secgroup-add-rule default icmp -1 -1 0.0.0.0/0

    e.  Fix nova-network on the COMPUTE NODE
killall dnsmasq
sudo stop nova-network
sudo start nova-network

    f.  Deploy an Ubuntu Image
nova boot myInstance --image <get UUID from nova image-list> --flavor 2 --key_name demo

    g.  Login to the Instance (May need to wait 5 minutes or more #vInceptionTax)
ssh -i /vagrant/demo.pem ubuntu@<get instance IP from nova list>

Hmm... I didn't need to specify a file system in my setup. Any of Linux gurus on here can point Bob in the right direction?

#C2OS Quantum(Neutron) Code has been merged to Cody's Repository.

A few caveats to keep in mind...
1. In the current state, at least 8 GB RAM is required on the host machine just for the VMs.  You can decrease the RAM requirement by making the following changes to the Vagrantfile:
a. Remove the new 'client' entry from the nodes hash.
b. Decrease the RAM allocation to the Compute node

2. The default networking behavior of the Vagrantfile has changed to accommodate folks who may have to vagrant up their VMs one-by-one.  If you have a network collision because of this, or you prefer the randomized third octet, make the appropriate change in the Vagrantfile.

3. I was not able to complete the code changes to communicate with deployed instances.  However, we will still be able to demo and discuss port and IP address allocations tonight.

Let us know if you have any questions!
