[Crowbar] euca commands not working?

Crowbar doesn't install the euca tools by default. It tells you how to install them in the error you pasted (apt-get install euca2ools), however with keystone adding ec2 credentials are sort of a second class citizen. You should start by using the dashboard to create groups and launch instances, then once that works move on the the cli API... Or use the nova API directly (nova commands instead of euca commands).

I wrote a s riot for adding tenants, users, and credentials to keystone, but I'm on my phone at the moment so I dot have access to it... I'll send it along this afternoon when I'm at my laptop again.

Also, you should hop in #openstack on freenode; lots of really helpful people there for general OpenStack questions.

While trying to learn openstack and crowbar I am running into a lot of troubles. I am sorry for spamming the mailinglist..

So when following this guide http://wiki.openstack.org/RunningNova part 'Wait for instance to be running' and 'Authorize SSH connections to the instance and connect' I'm trying to invoke these commands:


euca-authorize -P tcp -p 22 default
ssh -i mykey.priv root at<mailto:root at>

But on every node (including the crowbar admin node and nova-multi-controller) I receive the following error in return:

root at crowbar:/opt/dell/crowbar_framework/log# euca-describe-instances
The program 'euca-describe-instances' is currently not installed.  You can install it by typing:
apt-get install euca2ools

root at crowbar:/opt/dell/crowbar_framework/log# euca-authorize -P tcp -p 22 default
The program 'euca-authorize' is currently not installed.  You can install it by typing:
apt-get install euca2ools

How come that those commands wont work and how do I gain access through ssh?
