Knife Terremark

DESCRIPTION:

This is the official Opscode Knife plugin for Terremark. This plugin gives knife the ability to create, bootstrap, and manage servers on the Terremark Cloud.

INSTALLATION:

Be sure you are running the latest version Chef. Versions earlier than 0.10.0 don't support plugins:

gem install chef

This plugin depends on a forked version of fog. Download and Install It.

wget https://github.com/chirag-jog/fog/zipball/master
unzip master
cd *fog*
gem build fog.spec
gem install fog-<version>.gem

This plugin is distributed as a Ruby Gem. To install it, run:

gem install knife-terremark

Depending on your system's configuration, you may need to run this command with root privileges.

CONFIGURATION:

In order to communicate with the Terremark Cloud API you will have to tell Knife about your Username and API Key. The easiest way to accomplish this is to create some entries in your knife.rb file:

knife[:terremark_username] = "Your Terremark Account Username"
knife[:terremark_password] = "Your Terremark Account Password"

If your knife.rb file will be checked into a SCM system (ie readable by others) you may want to read the values from environment variables:

knife[:terremark_username] = "#{ENV['TERREMARK_USERNAME']}"
knife[:terremark_password] = "#{ENV['TERREMARK_PASSWORD']}"

You also have the option of passing your Terremark Username/Password into the individual knife subcommands using the -A (or --terremark-username) -K (or --terremark-password) command options

# provision a new 2 Core 1GB Ubuntu 10.04 webserver
knife terremark server create --vcpus 2 -m 1024 -I 40 -A 'Your Terremark Username' -K "Your Terremark Password" -r 'role[webserver]'

Additionally the following options may be set in your `knife.rb`:

  • image

  • distro

  • template_file

SUBCOMMANDS:

This plugin provides the following Knife subcommands. Specific command options can be found by invoking the subcommand with a --help flag

knife terremark server create

Provisions a new server in the Terremark Cloud and then perform a Chef bootstrap (using the SSH protocol). The goal of the bootstrap is to get Chef installed on the target system so it can run Chef Client with a Chef Server. The main assumption is a baseline OS installation exists (provided by the provisioning). It is primarily intended for Chef Client systems that talk to a Chef server. By default the server is bootstrapped using the ubuntu10.04-gems template. This can be overridden using the -d or --template-file command options.

knife terremark server delete

Deletes an existing server in the currently configured Terremark Cloud account by the server/instance id. You can find the instance id by entering 'knife terremark server list'. Please note - this does not delete the associated node and client objects from the Chef server.

knife terremark server list

Outputs a list of all servers in the currently configured Terremark Cloud account. Please note - this shows all instances associated with the account, some of which may not be currently managed by the Chef server.

knife terremark image list

Outputs a list of all available images available to the currently configured Terremark Cloud account. An image is a collection of files used to create or rebuild a server. Terremark provides a number of pre-built OS images by default. This data can be useful when choosing an image id to pass to the knife terremark server create subcommand.
