A tool for quick creation and deployment of Openstack machines used for QA testing.

Project Description

=== About ===

=== QuickStart ===

Install OpenStack Nova client tool:

# yum -y install python-novaclient

Get config file:

1. Login to
2. Navigate to Access & Security -> API Access
3. Save file from "Download OpenStack RC File" to ~/.5minute/config

Get started:

Show help:

$ ./5minute help

Upload your SSH public key:

$ ./5minute key ~/.ssh/

Show images we can work with:

$ ./5minute images

Boot your machine (consider adding '--name' or '--flavor' to the command):

$ ./5minute boot 5minute-RHEL6.6-x86-64-v2

You will get floating IP assigned and * hostname. It will
take 5 - 20 minutes to hostname to work, but you should be able to use IP
just fine:

$ ssh root@

When you are done, kill the machine (you can do it via OpenStack webUI,
but this way we can clean DNS records much quicker):

$ ./5minute delete $USER-5minute-RHEL6.6-x86-64-v2
