A quick summary of recent significant DevStack changes:
* Keystone Service Catalog SQL back-end
Add "KEYSTONE_CATALOG_BACKEND=sql" to localrc to tell Keystone to use
the SQL backend for the service catalog. This enables the keystone
service-* and endpoint-* commands to manage the service catalog. See
files/keystone_data.sh for the default commands used by DevStack.
DevStack continues to use the templated service catalog by default.
* Remove default services from ENABLED_SERVICES
This change allows easy the removal of services that are in
ENABLED_SERVICES by default (see the list in stackrc) by appending the
service name prefixed with a '-' to ENABLED_SERVICES. For example, to
switch from Nova Volumes to Cinder, you would add this to localrc:
(Note the leading comma following the equals sign)
* Cinder Support
Speaking of Cinder, basic support was merged last week. Since it is
still a bit of a moving target additional updates may still be
required. Enable Cinder as shown in the ENABLED_SERVICES section
above. Nova Volume will remain DevStack's default until some time
after Cinder becomes the default in Nova.
* The default volume group name has changed to stack-volumes to
remove the nova project name (it was formerly nova-volumes). Set it
in localrc with VOLUME_GROUP.
* The default backing file is now
/opt/stack/data/stack-volumes-backing-file (it was formerly
/opt/stack/nova-volumes-backing-file). Set it in localrc with
* Colored logs
Vish added color to Nova's logs a couple of weeks ago to greatly help
visually scanning the log files. Set "LOG_COLOR=False" in localrc to
disable the color as it is enabled by default. Also note that if
SYSLOG=true the log coloring is also disabled.
