Do we have to follow the Devstack setup instructions in Lab Exercise 2.1 before we access OpenStack to complete our lab exercises that require access to OpenStack?
The online labs are configured to allow someone to have the systems configured to the point the lab begins. If you didn't want to follow all the steps you may be able to select the next lab sub-section and have the previous steps completed.
As well there are many, many options with OpenStack. You may be able to do some of the steps. The labs have been tested with all the steps completed.
I am still confused.
I started Lab Exercise 3.1 this morning, which requires accessing OpenStack. I expected OpenStack to be available as a result of completing Lab 2 Exercise 2.1 yesterday. This morning OpenStack was not available.
Do I need to run the DevStack deployment script, stack.sh, first before I attempt to access OpenStack?
