native lxd driver for openstack
An OpenStack Compute driver for managing containers using LXD.
nova-lxd on Devstack
For development purposes, nova-lxd provides a devstack plugin. To use it, just include the
following in your devstack
[[local|localrc]] enable_plugin nova-lxd https://git.openstack.org/openstack/nova-lxd # You should enable the following if you use lxd 3.0. # In addition, this setting requires zfs >= 0.7.0. #LXD_BACKEND_DRIVER=zfs
Change git repositories as needed (it's probably not very useful to point to the main
nova-lxd repo). If you have a local tree you'd like to use, you can symlink your tree to
/opt/stack/nova-lxd and do your development from there.
The devstack default images won't work with lxd, as lxd doesn't support them. Once your stack is up and you've configured authentication against your devstack, do the following::
wget http://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/xenial/current/xenial-server-cloudimg-amd64-root.tar.gz glance image-create --name xenial --disk-format raw --container-format bare --file xenial-server-cloudimg-amd64-root.tar.gz
You can test your configuration using the exercise scripts in devstack. For instance,
Please note: the exercise scripts in devstack likely won't work, as they have requirements for using the cirros images.
