Purge ubuntu getting started guide of old info

The ubuntu getting started guide has not been maintained, and
most likely no longer works.  We should point people to Debian/Ubuntu
docs when they exist, or the devstack getting started guide.

Getting Started With Heat on Ubuntu
This guide will help to get the current git master of Heat to run on Ubuntu. It makes the following assumptions:
Heat is packaged for Debian, and Ubuntu (from 13.10)
- The host is running Ubuntu 12.04 or 12.10
- There is a working OpenStack installation based on Folsom, Grizzly or Havana, or that one will be installed via the tools/openstack_ubuntu script described below
- Heat will be installed on the controller host of the existing OpenStack installation (or if doing a single-host evaluation, on the same host as all other OpenStack services)
Alternatively, if you require a development environment not a package-based install, the suggested method is devstack, see instructions at :doc:`on_devstack`
Get Heat
Clone the heat repository_ from GitHub at ``git://github.com/openstack/heat.git``. Note that OpenStack must be installed before heat.
.. _repository: https://github.com/openstack/heat
Install OpenStack
Example Templates
Note, this section may be skipped if you already have a working OpenStack installation
Installing OpenStack on Ubuntu 12.04/12.10
A script called openstack_ubuntu in the tools directory of the Heat repository will install and start OpenStack for you on Ubuntu:
''Note currently only tested on 12.04, if it works for you on 12.10, please let us know''
./tools/openstack_ubuntu install -r ${MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD}
If you use this method, you will need to manually create a guest network. How this is done depends on your environment. An example network create operation:
sudo nova-manage network create --label=demonet --fixed_range_v4=${SUBNET} --bridge=demonetbr0 --bridge_interface=eth0
Where ''${SUBNET}'' is of the form ''''. The network range here, must *not* be one used on your existing physical network. It should be a range dedicated for the network that OpenStack will configure. So if '''' clashes with your local network, pick another subnet.
The example above assumes you want to bridge with physical device ''eth0''
Currently, the bridge is not created immediately upon running this command, but is actually added when Nova first requires it.
Load keystone authentication into your environment and verify everything is ok.
. ~/.openstack/keystonerc
keystone user-list
glance index
nova list
Note ''~/.openstack/keystonerc'' is created by tools/openstack_ubuntu, replace this step with your own credentials file for an admin user if OpenStack was installed by some other method
Install prerequisites
sudo apt-get install python-pip gcc python2.7-dev
sudo apt-get install git
sudo apt-get install build-essential devscripts debhelper python-all gdebi-core
sudo apt-get install python-setuptools python-prettytable python-lxml
sudo apt-get install libguestfs*
Install python-heatclient (optional)
*NOTE* If running 12.04 LTS with the packaged Openstack Essex release, do not install python-heatclient, as it will break your OpenStack installation, because it explicitly requires a version of the prettytable library (>0.6) which causes problems with the Essex cli tools (keystone/nova/glance) in 12.04 : https://bugs.launchpad.net/keystone/+bug/995976 The packaged python-prettytable (0.5 version) works OK
sudo pip install python-heatclient
Install Heat from master
git clone git://github.com/openstack/heat.git
cd heat
sudo ./install.sh
Modify configuration for admin password
Later a keystone user called '''heat''' will be created. At this point a password for that user needs to be chosen.
The following files will need editing:
- /etc/heat/heat.conf
admin_password=<heat admin password>
Create the MySQL Heat database:
sudo heat-db-setup deb -r <mysql password>
Create the keystone authentication parameters
sudo -E ./bin/heat-keystone-setup
Download or alternatively generate a JEOS image
It is possible to either use an image-building tool to create an image or download a prebuilt image of a desired distribution.
Download a prebuilt image and copy to libvirt images location
Download a prebuilt image from ``http://fedorapeople.org/groups/heat/prebuilt-jeos-images/``.
Note: This example assumes U10-x86_64-cfntools qcow2 was downloaded.
sudo cp Downloads/U10-x86_64-cfntools.qcow2 /var/lib/libvirt/images
Register with glance:
glance image-create --name=U10-x86_64-cfntools --disk-format=qcow2 --container-format=bare < /var/lib/libvirt/images/U10-x86_64-cfntools.qcow2
Alternatively see JEOS image-building documentation
If you wish to create your own JEOS image from scratch, there are a number of approaches which can be used.
One approach is using the Oz image-building tool, which is documented in the `jeos building documentation`_.
.. _jeos building documentation: http://docs.openstack.org/developer/heat/getting_started/jeos_building.html
Configure your host to work with Heat
Create SSH key and add it to the Nova sshkey list
ssh-keygen -t rsa
nova keypair-add --pub_key ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub ${USER}_key
Note: If running in a VM, modify /etc/libvirt/qemu/networks/default.xml:
change network to not conflict with host (default 192.168.122.x)
sudo service libvirt-bin restart
If dnsmasq is not running on the default network
sudo virsh net-destroy default
sudo virsh net-start default
Experiment with Heat
Execute the heat api services
sudo heat-engine &
sudo heat-api &
sudo heat-api-cfn &
sudo heat-api-cloudwatch &
Run the debian wordpress example
heat stack-create wordpress --template-url=https://raw.github.com/openstack/heat-templates/master/cfn/WordPress_Single_Instance_deb.template --parameters="InstanceType=m1.xlarge;DBUsername=${USER};DBPassword=verybadpassword;KeyName=${USER}_key;LinuxDistribution=U10"
List stacks
heat stack-list
List stack events
heat event-list wordpress
Describe the wordpress stack
heat stack-show wordpress
Note: After a few seconds, the Status should change from IN_PROGRESS to CREATE_COMPLETE.
Verify instance creation
Because the software takes some time to install from the repository, it may be a few minutes before the Wordpress intance is in a running state.
Point a web browser at the location given by the WebsiteURL Output as shown by heat show-stack wordpress::
wget ${WebsiteURL}
Delete the instance when done
heat stack-delete wordpress
heat stack-list
Note: This operation will show no running stack.
