  • Vagrant 1.3.5 (with VMware provider)
  • at least 2GB free memory


Run vagrant up (for VMware vagrant up --provider vmware_fusion ) and get a cup of tee. After a couple of minutes the system is up and you are able to log into Open Stack via Use the following credentials:

user: 		admin
password: 	devstack 

After a successful run you should see something like: completed in 941 seconds.

After you created a new machine, ensure you have created rules for access properly

# Add tcp/22 and icmp to default security group
nova secgroup-add-rule default tcp 22 22
nova secgroup-add-rule default icmp -1 -1


You should size up the memory of the vm if possible. Edit the Vagrantfile
