Requirements for OpenStack #


For a good working OpenStack in Taikun, you have to create image in OpenStack. Requirement is an Ubuntu 20 image and we recommend using a recent kernel, e.g. a base Ubuntu image with hwe kernel here:

To use the image in Taikun you have to use two tags “taikun” and “ubuntu{number}”. By default Taikun will take image with the latest {number}.

Command to add an image to openstack:

openstack image create --disk-format qcow2 --container-format bare --public --tag taikun --tag ubuntu20.04 --property hw_disk_bus=scsi --property hw_scsi_model=virtio-scsi taikun-focal-image --file taikun-image.qcow2
