Admin Utility

Introduction

Purpose of this script is to build a framework which can be leveraged to build utilities to help the on-field ops in system debugging.

Adding custom functions

Refer to the security groups example for reference implementation under, admin/plugins/nsx_v3/resources/securitygroups.py

Adding new functions is fairly straightforward:

  • Define the function under appropriate package. We use neutron callbacks to provide hooks. So your function definition should be like,
::

def function(resource, event, trigger, **kwargs)

  • Add the Resources and Operations enums if they don't exist.
::
class Operations(object):

NEUTRON_CLEAN = 'neutron_clean'

::
nsxv3_resources = {

constants.SECURITY_GROUPS: Resource(constants.SECURITY_GROUPS, ops)

}

  • In resource.py, add the function to the callback registry.
::
registry.subscribe(neutron_clean_security_groups,

Resources.SECURITY_GROUPS.value, Operations.NEUTRON_CLEAN.value)

  • To test, do
::

cd vmware-nsx/shell

sudo pip install -e .

nsxadmin -r <resource_name_you_added> -o <operation_you_added>

TODO

  • Use Cliff
  • Auto complete command line args.

Directory Structure

admin/

plugins/
common/

Contains code specific to different plugin versions.

nsx_v3/
resources/

Contains modules for various resources supported by the admin utility. These modules contains methods to perform operations on these resources.

Installation

::

sudo pip install -e .

Usage

::

nsxadmin -r <resource> -o <operation>

Example

::

$ nsxadmin -r security-groups -o list ==== [NSX] List Security Groups ==== Firewall Sections +------------------------------------------------+--------------------------------------+ | display_name | id | | default - 261343f8-4f35-4e57-9cc7-6c4fc7723b72 | 91a05fbd-054a-48b6-8e60-3b5d445be8c7 | | default - 823247b6-bdb3-47be-8bac-0d1114fc1ad7 | 78116d4a-de77-4a8f-b3e5-e76f458840ea | | OS default section for security-groups | 10a2fc6c-29c9-4d8d-ac2c-b24aafa15c79 | | Default Layer3 Section | e479e404-e712-4adb-879c-e432d510c056 | +------------------------------------------------+--------------------------------------+ Firewall NS Groups +------------------------------------------------+--------------------------------------+ | display_name | id | | NSGroup Container | c0b26e82-d49b-49f0-b68e-7449a59366e9 | | default - 261343f8-4f35-4e57-9cc7-6c4fc7723b72 | 2e5b5ca1-f687-4556-8130-9524b313474b | | default - 823247b6-bdb3-47be-8bac-0d1114fc1ad7 | b5cd9ae4-42b5-47a7-a1bf-9767ac62466e | +------------------------------------------------+--------------------------------------+ ==== [NEUTRON] List Security Groups Mappings ==== security-groups +---------+--------------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+----------------------+ | name | id | section-uri | nsx-securitygroup-id | +---------+--------------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+----------------------+ | default | f785c82a-5b28-42ac-aa0a-ad56720ccbbc | /api/4.0/firewall/globalroot-0/config/layer3sections/1006 | securitygroup-12 | +---------+--------------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+----------------------+

Upgrade Steps (Version 1.0.0 to Version 1.1.0)

  1. Upgrade NSX backend from version 1.0.0 to version 1.1.0
  2. Create a DHCP-Profile and a Metadata-Proxy in NSX backend
  3. Stop Neutron
  4. Install version 1.1.0 Neutron plugin
  5. Run admin tools to migrate version 1.0.0 objects to version 1.1.0 objects
    • nsxadmin -r metadata-proxy -o nsx-update --property metadata_proxy_uuid=<UUID of Metadata-Proxy created in Step 2>
    • nsxadmin -r dhcp-binding -o nsx-update --property dhcp_profile_uuid=<UUID of DHCP-Profile created in Step 2>
  6. Start Neutron
  7. Make sure /etc/nova/nova.conf has metadata_proxy_shared_secret = <Secret of Metadata-Proxy created in Step 2>
  8. Restart VMs or ifdown/ifup their network interface to get new DHCP options
