conjure-up provides you with a streamlined, turnkey solution. In order to provide that streamlined approach, conjure-up makes use of processing scripts. These scripts are executed at 3 different times in the deployment: just after a Juju bootstrap, just before a Juju deploy, and right after a Juju deploy.
Processing scripts give you the flexibility to alter LXD profiles in order to expose additional network interfaces to Neutron services, import images into Glance once the service is available, or notifying the Deployment status screen that your solution is ready and can be viewed at a specific URL.
With these powerful concepts you can package up the solution that can then be provided to coworkers who can easily deploy your solutions in any Public Cloud, MAAS, or LXD.
For Public Cloud deployments hardware requirements (constraints) are handled by the Spell authors and will automatically be allocated during deploy.
For localhost deployments the following setup is recommended:
- 2 cores
- 16G RAM
- 32G Swap
- 250G SSD with a separate block device for ZFS. Our recommendation for that device is 100G.
conjure-up is available on both Ubuntu Trusty 14.04 LTS and Ubuntu Xenial
sudo snap install conjure-up --classic
Note: If above command fails you’ll want to make sure snapd is installed with
sudo apt install snapd
Trusty users will need to perform some additional steps prior to getting the snappy version installed.
To get a working conjure-up install on Trusty, the following needs to be run:
sudo apt-get install snapd sudo groupadd lxd && sudo usermod -a -G lxd $USER sudo reboot sudo snap install conjure-up --classic
If you want to preview of the next release, the latest beta version can be installed with the following command:
sudo snap install conjure-up --classic --beta
For the most recent changes, install the
sudo snap install conjure-up --classic --edge
If you have conjure-up already installed, you can update to a different snap channel with:
sudo snap refresh conjure-up --classic --edge
sudo snap refresh conjure-up --classic --beta
conjure-up currently only supports running a single installation of LXD. This means systems with LXD pre-installed, like Ubuntu Xenial Server, should not have the snapped version of LXD installed.
Note: If you’ve never done anything with Snaps before feel free to skip this section.
You can opt to use either or as conjure-up will support LXD versions 2.10
and above. To verify that you do only have a single installation of LXD, check
that the output from the
snap list command does not have
Name Version Rev Developer Notes core 16.04.1 888 canonical -
lxd is listed in the above output, make sure you do not have the Debian
package installed by running:
dpkg -l lxd
In order to fix this problem you’ll want to remove one of those:
For the snap version:
sudo snap remove lxd
For the Debian package:
sudo apt-get remove lxd lxd-client sudo apt-get purge lxd
To deploy solutions such as OpenStack you will summon a spell:
