Subject RE: Cartridge Creation Guide (was: "Creating a Cartridge" related scripts)

Hi Isuru,

                Thanks for the quick response.  


Hi All,

Has anyone created and used php and mysql cartridges on openstack using
stratos 4.0. I would really appreciate your help to quickly get my POC back
on track.


I have been able to get the stratos UI up and connect to openstack however
since I have not been able to create an image for php and mysql I am not
able to proceed with getting an instance up and running on openstack.


Thanks & Regards

Puppet [1] is used to automate cartridge configuration and we use it make
our life easy! :)

What we have done is that there is separate Puppet Master server is running
and the cartridge will have an init script to configure itself by
communicating with Puppet Master.

We have already provided the steps to configure a Puppet Master [2].

We will work on improving the docs and will try to provide answers for all
your questions.

This is just a quick reply for you.

Hi Isuru,

                I have not used Puppet earlier and have tried to get a quick
understanding of it, I have tried following the guide multiple times but I
guess I have not understood the process please see the output and questions

-          My understanding is that you already have script or image on a
puppet master (php, mysql, tomcat) from which I would be able to generate an
image which would need to be uploaded to my openstack image.

-          As per the scripts below I have created a puppet master on my VM,
which would mean that I would need to create puppet script for each
cartridge that I need to install?

-          Please see highlighted areas and let me know if these are correct
and if you have a document on the process of creating a new cartridge that
would help. For example I would like to create a postgres cartridge for
openstack for stratos 4.0 what are the detailed steps that I need to follow.


Do you have any hangouts or recording of the process to create a cartridge?
If required please give me your contact number and the time you would be
available so that we can discuss this. I can be reached @ +1 (408)876-7176
<tel:%2B1%20%28408%29876-7176> .

 Thanks & Regards
