Author Date 2012-04-05 Copyright OpenStack LLC Version 2012.1 Manual section 1 Manual group cloud computing SYNOPSIS nova-manage <category> <action> [<args>] DESCRIPTION nova-manage controls cloud computing instances by managing nova users, nova projects, nova roles, shell selection, vpn connections, and floating IP address configuration. More information about OpenStack Nova is at OPTIONS The standard pattern for executing a nova-manage command is: nova-manage <category> <command> [<args>] For example, to obtain a list of all projects: nova-manage project list Run without arguments to see a list of available command categories: nova-manage Categories are user, project, role, shell, vpn, and floating. Detailed descriptions are below. You can also run with a category argument such as user to see a list of all commands in that category: nova-manage user These sections describe the available categories and arguments for nova-manage. Nova Db nova-manage db version Print the current database version. nova-manage db sync Sync the database up to the most recent version. This is the standard way to create the db as well. Nova User nova-manage user admin <username> Create an admin user with the name <username>. nova-manage user create <username> Create a normal user with the name <username>. nova-manage user delete <username> Delete the user with the name <username>. nova-manage user exports <username> Outputs a list of access key and secret keys for user to the screen nova-manage user list Outputs a list of all the user names to the screen. nova-manage user modify <accesskey> <secretkey> <admin?T/F> Updates the indicated user keys, indicating with T or F if the user is an admin user. Leave any argument blank if you do not want to update it. Nova Project nova-manage project add <projectname> Add a nova project with the name <projectname> to the database. nova-manage project create <projectname> Create a new nova project with the name <projectname> (you still need to do nova-manage project add <projectname> to add it to the data- base). nova-manage project delete <projectname> Delete a nova project with the name <projectname>. nova-manage project environment <projectname> <username> Exports environment variables for the named project to a file named novarc. nova-manage project list Outputs a list of all the projects to the screen. nova-manage project quota <projectname> Outputs the size and specs of the project's instances including gigabytes, instances, floating IPs, volumes, and cores. nova-manage project remove <projectname> Deletes the project with the name <projectname>. nova-manage project zipfile Compresses all related files for a created project into a zip file Nova Role nova-manage role add <username> <rolename> <(optional) projectname> Add a user to either a global or project-based role with the indicated <rolename> assigned to the named user. Role names can be one of the following five roles: cloudadmin, itsec, sysadmin, netadmin, developer. If you add the project name as the last argument then the role is assigned just for that project, otherwise the user is assigned the named role for all projects. nova-manage role has <username> <projectname> Checks the user or project and responds with True if the user has a global role with a particular project. nova-manage role remove <username> <rolename> Remove the indicated role from the user. Nova Logs nova-manage logs errors Displays nova errors from log files. nova-manage logs syslog <number> Displays nova alerts from syslog. Nova Shell nova-manage shell bpython Starts a new bpython shell. nova-manage shell ipython Starts a new ipython shell. nova-manage shell python Starts a new python shell. nova-manage shell run Starts a new shell using python. nova-manage shell script <path/scriptname> Runs the named script from the specified path with flags set. Nova VPN nova-manage vpn list Displays a list of projects, their IP prot numbers, and what state they're in. nova-manage vpn run <projectname> Starts the VPN for the named project. nova-manage vpn spawn Runs all VPNs. Nova Floating IPs nova-manage floating create <ip_range> [--pool <pool>] [--interface <interface>] Creates floating IP addresses for the given range, optionally specifying a floating pool and a network interface. nova-manage floating delete <ip_range> Deletes floating IP addresses in the range given. nova-manage floating list Displays a list of all floating IP addresses. Nova Flavor nova-manage flavor list Outputs a list of all active flavors to the screen. nova-manage flavor list --all Outputs a list of all flavors (active and inactive) to the screen. nova-manage flavor create <name> <memory> <vCPU> <local_storage> <flavorID> <(optional) swap> <(optional) RXTX Quota> <(optional) RXTX Cap> creates a flavor with the following positional arguments: o memory (expressed in megabytes) o vcpu(s) (integer) o local storage (expressed in gigabytes) o flavorid (unique integer) o swap space (expressed in megabytes, defaults to zero, optional) o RXTX quotas (expressed in gigabytes, defaults to zero, optional) o RXTX cap (expressed in gigabytes, defaults to zero, optional) nova-manage flavor delete <name> Delete the flavor with the name <name>. This marks the flavor as inactive and cannot be launched. However, the record stays in the data- base for archival and billing purposes. nova-manage flavor delete <name> --purge Purges the flavor with the name <name>. This removes this flavor from the database. Nova Instance_type The instance_type command is provided as an alias for the flavor command. All the same subcommands and arguments from nova-manage flavor can be used. Nova Images nova-manage image image_register <path> <owner> Registers an image with the image service. nova-manage image kernel_register <path> <owner> Registers a kernel with the image service. nova-manage image ramdisk_register <path> <owner> Registers a ramdisk with the image service. nova-manage image all_register <image_path> <kernel_path> <ramdisk_path> <owner> Registers an image kernel and ramdisk with the image service. nova-manage image convert <directory> Converts all images in directory from the old (Bexar) format to the new format. Nova VM nova-manage vm list [host] Show a list of all instances. Accepts optional hostname (to show only instances on specific host). nova-manage live-migration <ec2_id> <destination host name> Live migrate instance from current host to destination host. Requires instance id (which comes from euca-describe-instance) and des- tination host name (which can be found from nova-manage service list). FILES The nova-manage.conf file contains configuration information in the form of python-gflags.
