Chapter 3 Using OpenStack CLIs

In order to access the OpenStack command line tools, such as nova, glance, and so on, you need to install the python-openstack_project client packages. Installing these packages may cause dependency problems with Docker and OpenStack client package versions. To make the installation of the OpenStack client tools easier, Oracle provides a single package for you which includes all the OpenStack CLI tools. The package name is openstack-kolla-utils . This package is provided with pre-tested package dependencies, and enables you to submit OpenStack CLI commands via Docker to an OpenStack service in a container. This toolkit is a single package you can install, with all the OpenStack Docker command line tool wrappers.

Oracle suggests you install the openstack-kolla-utils package on a master node, though you can install it on any Oracle Linux Release 7 host.
