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.gridcentric.getserver.id)
return server

def wait_until_gone(server):
try:
while True:
server = novaclient.gridcentric.getserver.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 arguement.
image_id = sys.argv[1]
flavor_id = 1
server = novaclient.servers.create("Gridcentric instance",
image_id,
flavor_id)
server = wait_for_status(server, "ACTIVE")

# Bless the server. This will return an instance of the blessed_server. We need to
# wait until the server becomes active.
blessed_server = novaclient.gridcentric.bless(server)[0]
blessed_server = wait_for_status(blessed_server, "BLESSED")

# Launch a new server based off of the blessed one. Note that we can do this
# by either calling launch on the server itself, or passing the server into the
# gridcentric manager.
launched_server = blessed_server.launch()[0]
launched_server2 = novaclient.gridcentric.launch(blessed_server)[0]

# list the servers that were launched from the blessed ones.
for s in blessed_server.list_launched():
print "Server %s was launched from %s" %s.id, blessed_server.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 discarding
# the blessed instance.
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
blessed_server.discard()
