Using the Batch Service VMs on private clouds

If you would like to use the Batch Services virtual machines on your own private cloud, you may retrieve the VM images from the DAIR repository for installation in your cloud's repository. DAIR is an OpenStack cloud with the Glance image repository. Assuming your private cloud is also an OpenStack cloud with a Glance repository, the process for copying the image from DAIR to your own repository would be:

  • On a convenient workstation:
    • Install the glance client (eg. yum install python-glanceclient, apt-get install python-glanceclient, etc.).
    • Log into the DAIR cloud and download the RC file (ie. Settings->!OpenStack API->Download RC File).
    • Source the DAIR RC file (eg. source openrc-alberta.sh).
    • Download the image to your workstation, eg:
      • glance image-list
      • glance image-download --file {image-name-on-workstation} {image-ID-from-list-on-DAIR}
    • Log into your private cloud and download the RC file (ie. Settings->!OpenStack API->Download RC File).
    • Source your cloud's RC file (eg. source openrc-yourcloud.sh).
    • Upload the image to your private cloud, eg:
      • glance image-create --file {image-name-on-workstation} --name {image-name-on-your-cloud} --disk-format qcow2 --container-format bare
