Labmanager Shell is a command line interface to Lab Manager's SOAP API. It currently only supports Lab Manager's external API.
Each command is documented and available via the help command, which either accepts a single argument, the name of a command, or no arguments. If no arguments are given, then all the existing commands will be displayed. For example:
(lmsh) help Documented commands (type help <topic>): ======================================== checkout delete deploy list machines show undeploy
There is also limited amounts of tab completion, mostly in the form of autocompleting commands and subcommands. Auto completing arguments such as the config ID would require querying the Lab Manager server, which would take considerable time to autocomplete.
Below is a sample of the existing commands in action.
List all the machines in the library and workspace:
(lmsh) list id | name | deployed | type | owner =======+================================+==========+============+================ 191 | TestServerOne | False | workspace | testowner1 289 | TestServerTwo | True | workspace | testowner2 1393 | TestServerThree | False | library | testowner2
Show all the machines that are in config id 289 (useful for seeing the IP addresses of the machines):
(lmsh) machines 289 id | name | internal | MAC | memory | config =====+========+===============+===================+========+======= 9601 | web1 | 126.96.36.199 | 00:50:56:0b:0e:01 | 1024 | 289 9602 | web2 | 188.8.131.52 | 00:50:56:0b:0e:02 | 1024 | 289 9603 | web3 | 184.108.40.206 | 00:50:56:0b:0e:03 | 1024 | 289 9604 | db1 | 220.127.116.11 | 00:50:56:0b:0e:04 | 4096 | 289
(lmsh) undeploy 289 Undeploying config... (lmsh) deploy unfenced 289 Deploying config... (lmsh)
You can also run a single command without entering the interactive shell:
[user@machine ~]$ lmsh machines 289 id | name | internal | MAC | memory | config =====+========+===============+===================+========+======= 9601 | web1 | 18.104.22.168 | 00:50:56:0b:0e:01 | 1024 | 289 9602 | web2 | 22.214.171.124 | 00:50:56:0b:0e:02 | 1024 | 289 9603 | web3 | 126.96.36.199 | 00:50:56:0b:0e:03 | 1024 | 289 9604 | db1 | 188.8.131.52 | 00:50:56:0b:0e:04 | 4096 | 289
This allows you to do things such as programatically undeploying all your existing configurations using the command line/bash:
for id in $(lmsh list workspace | grep '^[0-9]' | cut -d' ' -f 1) do lmsh undeploy $id done
Though for more complicated uses, you may just want to use the labmanager.api module directly in python.
You can either specify the configuration values via the command line or an rc file. For example, the following:
$ lmsh --hostname=mylabmanager.com --username=myusername \ --organization=myorg --workspace=myworkspace
is equivalent to this:
$ cat > ~/.lmshrc [default] hostname=mylabmanager.com username=myusername organization=myorg workspace=myworkspace $ lmsh
Note that configuration above is in a default section. You can have multiple sections defined in your ~/.lmshrc and then specify which config options to load using the --section option.
You can also specify the password option in the config file. If the config file does not have the password option, then you will be prompted for your password on running lmsh:
$ lmsh password: (lmsh)
Command line options are merged with RC options, so command line options will override configuration values. This is useful if you want to put your default values in your ~/.lmshrc file. For example, running this command (assuming you have the above config file in ~/.lmshrc):
$ lmsh --workspace=alternate_workspace
The ~/.lmshrc is first loaded, and then the workspace value is overriden from myworkspace to alternate_workspace. The end result is that the hostname, username, and organization are loaded from the ~/.lmshrc file and the workspace value is loaded from the value specified on the command line.
