OpenStack-Hyper-V (A module for building Windows/Hyper-V OpenStack Compute nodes)

This modules begins the configuration of a openstack_hyper_v compute node for openstack.

It currently has the beginings of both from package and from source options.

This is still a work in progress.

Basic usage

To configure openstack_hyper_v compute on a windows/hyper-v server

class { 'openstack_hyper_v':
  # Rabbit
  rabbit_host               => 'rabbit',
  rabbit_password           => hiera('rabbit_password'),
  rabbit_userid             => 'nova',
  rabbit_virtual_host       => '/',
  # Glance
  glance_api_servers        => '',
  # Live Migration
  live_migration            => true,
  live_migration_type       => 'Kerberos',
  live_migration_networks   => '',
  # Virtual Switch
  virtual_switch_name       => 'br100',
  virtual_switch_address    => inline_template("<%= require 'resolv';>"),
  virtual_switch_os_managed => true,
  # General
  instances_path            => 'D:\\',
  verbose                   => false,
  debug                     => false,
  nova_compute              => true,
  mkisofs_cmd               => 'H:\Shared\openstack\tools\mkisofs.exe',
  qemu_img_cmd              => 'H:\Shared\openstack\tools\qemu-img.exe';
