An other Vagrant box with Devstack and Ubuntu 14.04

NOTE: Please do not use this box anymore. The box of Sean is today available at openstack-dev/devstack-vagrant and I am integrating the benefits of my box there at the moment.

Like Sean Dague I really like Vagrant and created a box with Ubuntu 14.04 and Devstack a few days ago. The box is available for use with VirtualBox on the Vagrant Cloud. The used Vagrantfile and Puppet manifest is available on Github in the repository berendt/vagrant-devstack. Hava a look in the used local.conf for enabled services and available images.

To use the prepared box simply install Vagrant and fetch the box with vagrant box add berendt/devstack-ubuntu-14.04-amd64. Now you can use the box with the following Vagrantfile. After typing vagrant up the start of the box will take appr. 10 minutes. Afterwards you can login with vagrant ssh. The dashboard is available at http://localhost:8080/. Add to /etc/hosts to be able to use the VNC sessions.


Vagrant.configure(VAGRANTFILE_API_VERSION) do |config| = "berendt/devstack-ubuntu-14.04-amd64" "forwarded_port", guest: 80, host: 8080, host_ip: "" "forwarded_port", guest: 6080, host: 6080, host_ip: ""

  config.vm.provider "virtualbox" do |vb|
      vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--memory", "16384"]
      vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--cpus", "8"]

  config.vm.provision "shell", privileged: false, inline: "/home/vagrant/devstack/"

  1. after installing

    what username and password
    to enter openstack dashboard on the host at

      1. Hmm,

        This looks great – except I can’t login to the OpenStack Server (the web portal).

        The ‘admin’ and ‘password’ does not work for me.

        Apart from that – it looks like it’s complete.

  2. Figured out the login issue.

    After you startup the VM – you need to run ‘’ – and the default ‘admin’ and ‘password’ work fine.
