If clouds would follow this standard it would make it easier to contextualize images: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/AESDG-chapter-instancedata.html

Common problem with finding the public IP of the machine:

  • is empty although VMs have public IPs
  • contains the public IP

Also, it should be strongly recommended that each OpenStack cloud change the default .novalocal suffix to something site-specific.

EC2 meta-data should return the hostname for private IPs, not the ip address in the hostname field. in nova.conf
