Register User-Facing Services

This topic describes how to register the User-Facing Services (UFS) with the Cloud Controller (CLC).

To register the User-Facing Services with the Eucalyptus cloud
  1. On the CLC host machine, obtain your temporary access keys for the Eucalyptus set up by running the following command:
    eval `clcadmin-assume-system-credentials`
    Note: You will create longer-lived and fully functional access keys later.
  2. Also on the CLC host machine, run the following command:
    euserv-register-service -t user-api -h IP SVCINSTANCE


    • IP is the IP address of the UFS you are registering.
    • SVCINSTANCE must be a unique name for the User-Facing service.

    For example:

    euserv-register-service -t user-api -h user-api-1
  3. Repeat for each UFS host, replacing the UFS IP address and UFS name.
  4. Copy the security credentials from the CLC to each machine running User-Facing Services. Run this command on the CLC host machine:
    clcadmin-copy-keys HOST [HOST ...]

    For example:

  5. Verify that the User-Facing service is registered with the following command for each instance of the UFS:
    euserv-describe-services SVCINSTANCE

The registered UFS instances are now ready for your cloud.
