Scripting usage
===============

The novaclient hooks can also be accessed directly using the python API.

    user = "admin"
    apikey = "admin"
    project = "openstackDemo"
    authurl = "http://localhost:5000/v2.0"

    extensions = shell.OpenStackComputeShell()._discover_extensions("1.1")
    novaclient = NovaClient(user, apikey, project, authurl, extensions=extensions,
                            endpoint_type=shell.DEFAULT_NOVA_ENDPOINT_TYPE,
                            service_type=shell.DEFAULT_NOVA_SERVICE_TYPE)

    def wait_for_status(server, status):
        while server.status != status:
            time.sleep(30)
            server = novaclient.cobalt.get(server.id)
        return server

    def wait_until_gone(server):
        try:
            while True:
                server = novaclient.cobalt.get(server.id)
                time.sleep(10)
        except Exception, e:
            # server is no longer there.
            pass

    # Boot a new server using flavor 1 and the image passed in as the first argument.
    image_id = sys.argv[1]
    flavor_id = 1
    server = novaclient.servers.create("Gridcentric instance",
                                  image_id,
                                  flavor_id)
    server = wait_for_status(server, "ACTIVE")

    # Create a live image of the server. This will return an instance of the blessed_server. We need to
    # wait until the live image becomes active.
    live_image = novaclient.cobalt.live_image_create(server)[0]
    live_image = wait_for_status(live_image, "BLESSED")

    # Launch a new server based off of the live iamge. Note that we can do this
    # by either calling start_live_image on the server itself, or passing the server into the
    # cobalt manager.
    launched_server = live_image.start_live_image()[0]
    launched_server2 = novaclient.cobalt.start_live_image(live_image)[0]

    # list the servers that were launched from the live_image.
    for s in live_image.list_servers():
        print "Server %s was launched from %s" %(s.id, live_image.id)

    # Delete the launched servers.
    launched_server2 = wait_for_status(launched_server2, "ACTIVE")
    launched_server2.delete()
    launched_server = wait_for_status(launched_server, "ACTIVE")
    novaclient.servers.delete(launched_server)

    # W need to ensure that the launched instances have been deleted before deleting
    # the live image.
    wait_until_gone(launched_server2)
    wait_until_gone(launched_server)

    # Delete the original server. Note we can delete this server
    # and keep the blessed one around.
    server.delete()

    # Discard the blessed server
    live_image.delete_live_image()
