Stopping and starting Nova services

Now that we have configured our OpenStack Compute installation, it's time to start our services so that they're running on our OpenStack1 Virtual Machine ready for us to launch our own private cloud instances.

Getting ready

If you haven't done so already, ssh to our virtual machine as the openstack user—either using a command-line tool or a client, such as PuTTY if you're using Windows.

ssh openstack@172.16.0.1

This ensures that we can access our virtual machine, as we will need access to spin up instances from your personal computer.

The services that run as part of our openstack1 setup are:

  • nova-compute
  • nova-api
  • nova-network
  • nova-objectstore
  • nova-scheduler
  • nova-cert
  • libvirt-bin
  • glance-registry
  • glance-api
