[Openstack] Rackspace Cloud and Openstack Client compatibility

0 votes

Hi,

I tried using OpenStack Client 3.12.0 and could list networks and create
servers (without network conf).
Unfortunately an attempt to create a server with a network configuration
resulted in:

This is exactly the same issue as in
https://github.com/hashicorp/terraform/issues/1560 filed in 2015.

I checked Terraform which presumably uses Heat client (
https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/OpenStackClients#Official_Clients) but it
also says that Rackspace is not officially supported due to some
differences (https://www.terraform.io/docs/providers/openstack/).

Am missing something or Rackspace Cloud and the OpenStack clients are not
compatible?
Has anyone been successful in fully managing Rackspace with OpenStack tools?

Best,
Gintas

A bit off-topic:
Terraform uses the gophercloud go library to talk directly to the Keystone/Neutron/Nova OpenStack APIs
It is not using Heat in the background.
Very simplified I would say terraform is a cloud vendor-neutral (ish) replacement for Heat which is run client-side instead of server-side.

Never played with Rackspace Cloud, cannot help you here.

Cheers,
