Clear message

This page assumes you have an orchestra setup already working, and discusses how to configure juju to control this setup

1. Installing juju

Starting Oneiric 11.10, juju is available in universe

sudo apt-get install juju

to install a daily build from PPA or to install from source code, check out the juju documentation

2. Configuring the environment

sudo mkdir -p ~/.juju
sudo vim ~/.juju/environments.yaml

And we copy the following

juju: environments
    type: orchestra
    # Specify the orchestra server's IP address
    # Specify storage. In this case we are using webdav installed by orchestra.
    # Specify cobbler's usr/pass
    orchestra-user: cobbler
    orchestra-pass: cobbler
    admin-secret: fooooo
    # Branch from where we will install ensemble
    # juju-branch: lp:juju
    # Mangement classes
    acquired-mgmt-class: orchestra-juju-acquired
    available-mgmt-class: orchestra-juju-available

3. Creating SSH keys

Ensemble requires SSH keys to be able to access the deployed nodes. In case those keys do not exist, then we have to create them before we bootstrap our environment:

ssh-keygen -t rsa

4. Bootstrapping the environment

After the configuration done above, we bootstrapped the environment:

juju bootstrap

This process will select any of the machines available to orchestra to be the zookeeper node. In this example, the machine's name is mabolo

ubuntu@orchtrasrvr:~$ juju status
2011-09-08 18:02:22,148 INFO Connecting to environment.
  0: {dns-name: mabolo.lan, instance-id: MTMxNDMwNzI0OS40ODkyODE2MzAuODE5ODY}

NOTE: Note that after executing the command we had to manually start/restart the system to PXE boot it. This can be automated if cobbler is configured to power-on the servers
