Kiallanyone know if its possible to convince cloudinit to set an EC2 instance's hostname to its external name, rather than internal?03:55
flaccidedit the module or create a new one i think03:56
Kiallflaccid, yea - im looking at the source now .. I would have thought it a common request and figured it was something simple ;) bah!04:01
flaccidfeel free to contribute04:01
Kiallflaccid, if i could get my head around bzr / quilt and their friends .. i would ;)  .. git I can handle .. bzr and quilt make me sore ;)04:02
flaccidi agree04:02
Kiallinfact .. its not even quilt .. i can use that ;) .. its just bzr! ;)04:03
flaccidbzr is pretty straight forward. i'm sure many ubuntu peeps can help you if you have a problem04:03
KiallI'm sure its just that i'm way too used to git to allow myself to get used to it!04:04
flaccidhey im' like that too for sure04:05
Kiallyup.. launchpad doesnt exactly help either .. never have the slightest clue which branch and repo to use! anyway .. guess I'll figure another way around it as I need a fix pretty quickly .. i think preserve_hostname: true and setting it in runcmd's should work04:06
flaccidyeah its confusing as. i don't know much about cloud-init yet. hoping someone else here can assist you04:07

superxglhi all, is cloud-init only for ubuntu? is there any RPM package for CentOS installing ?09:07
sorenIt was written in the hope that other distros would pick it up.09:24
soren...whether they have or not... No idea.09:25
superxglsoren: thank you. i want to install cloud-init on my CentOS, but did not find any rpm package09:38
superxgli don't know if i can convert the cloud-init deb package into rpm package...09:43
kim0superxgl: I think a program named "alien" might help convert it .. doesn't mean it'll work though :)09:55
superxglkim0: thank you. i will have a try :)10:05
TREllissuperxgl: well, amazon use it in their "official" linux ami, which looks relatively centos based10:11
TREllissuperxgl: infact, if you launch one of their official linux ami's you can grab the src.rpm using 'get_reference_source -p cloud-init'10:21
superxglTREllis: Thank you very much :)10:22
TREllisnot sure why they make you use that script to get to the source packages, but I guess it's something to do with all their repos & mirrors only being accessible from AWS10:22
superxglTREllis: hmm... i don't have an account for amazon10:23
flaccidsuperxgl: get the rpm from the amazon linux ami.10:24
flaccidthey have a version of cloud-init and it works10:25
superxglflaccid :  i don't use EC2 so i can not access the linux ami :(10:25
flaccidoh crap i some already said sorry10:25
flaccidstart using it.10:26
flacciderr *someone said10:26
flaccidi'd launch an instance and get it but i cbf :)10:27
superxglflaccid: thx :)10:28

superxglTREllis: i could not rebuild the cloudinit-src.rpm, it said that :  error: Failed build dependencies:  python-devel-abi is needed by cloud-init-0.5.14-22.noarch12:29
TREllissuperxgl: never mind, you'll need to grab the binary from the amazon linux ami then12:30
superxgli have installed something like python-devel, python-abi, and it did not works. and i googled a lot , did not find the python-devel-abi12:30
TREllissuperxgl: and/or try python26-devel since Centos5 uses python2.4 by default12:31
kim0superxgl: yum whatprovides python-devel-abi12:32
kim0might help12:32
superxgli did yum python-devel-abi, but it saids not have this one...12:32
kim0just try that command12:32
superxgli am trying install python26 now12:33
TREllisit's probably easier just to spin up an instance and user yumdownloader to grab the binary12:34
superxgli did yum whatprovides python-devel-abi , still not found...12:35
TREllissuperxgl: 2 secs, I'll pull it out of one of my instances12:40
superxglTREllis : oh...thank you very much, u help me a lot today :)12:41
TREllissuperxgl: http://trellisnet.co.uk/junk/cloud-init-0.5.14-23.amzn1.noarch.rpm interestingly the one they provide the source of is version -22 not -2312:46
superxglTREllis:  oh, ya , it did is -22... thank you for ur help , i am really appreciate for all of your help here :)12:50
TREllissuperxgl: sure, np12:51
superxglTREllis : cool...the rpm works pretty well :) tnx:)12:53
TREllissuperxgl: you are using it for spinning up centos emi's in UEC?12:54
superxglTREllis: i am using it for execute some scripts once the instance boots, for i want to run hadoop on the eucalyptus .and  i am using centos EMI now12:57
TREllissuperxgl: right ok12:59
superxglTREllis : hopes it works :)12:59
TREllissuperxgl: I've done a bit of hadoop in UEC in the past12:59
TREllissuperxgl: but generally with the Ubuntu EMI's :-)12:59
superxglTREllis : oh ,really ?13:00
superxglit is cool..13:00
superxglso how did u do that ?13:00
superxgli just followed the guide : http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/AmazonEC213:01
TREllissuperxgl: there is a number of ways, there are a few puppet modules for hadoop floating around on the web, I used cloud-init with some already configured hadoop configs since it was only for some tests13:01
superxgland i modified the scripts to make it works  on eucalyptus13:01
superxglTREllis : hmm...cool..13:03
superxglpuppet modules ? what are they?13:04
superxglhmm...looks like the coming release 0.4.0 of apache whirr will support eucalyptus ..13:15

RobertLaptopQuestion,  Under EC2 once can define a puppet script to customize an image in it startup process.  Is there a way to do it in a Private eucalyptus cloud?17:47
TREllisRobertLaptop: cloud-init can hook into puppet17:58
RobertLaptopTREllis, clound-init any documentations?  I guess in my week long research on running a cloud I missed that.17:59
TREllisRobertLaptop: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CloudInit & http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~cloud-init-dev/cloud-init/trunk/view/head:/doc/examples/cloud-config.txt for a fully commented cloud-config file for cloud-init17:59
TREllisRobertLaptop: actually, this file has the puppet cloud-init docs: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~cloud-init-dev/cloud-init/trunk/view/head:/doc/examples/cloud-config-puppet.txt18:01
RobertLaptopTREllis, thanks will read18:01
TREllisyou can't specify a specific puppet class in cloud-init, but you can get it to do the bootstrap,18:01
TREllisyou'll have to have a node definition that knows that ec2 node name or hostname glob and match that to classes or use some examples that mathias produced a while back: http://ubuntumathiaz.wordpress.com/ check out all his blog posts on puppet+ec2/uec18:02
RobertLaptopYea that was my one big question was how to pass that info to puppet for something that will get created on the fly.18:04
