native lxd driver for openstack

Project description

nova-lxd Build Status

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.conf:

[[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,

DEFAULT_IMAGE_NAME=xenial ./exercises/volumes.sh

Please note: the exercise scripts in devstack likely won't work, as they have requirements for using the cirros images.

Support and discussions

We use the LXC mailing-lists for developer and user discussions, you can find and subscribe to those at: https://lists.linuxcontainers.org

If you prefer live discussions, some of us also hang out in #lxcontainers on irc.freenode.net.
