Abiquo Cookbook

Build Status
Abiquo Cookbook
Chef Version

This cookbook provides several recipes to install and upgrade an Abiquo platform.
It allows you to provision an Abiquo Server, the Remote Services server, standalone V2V
server, monitoring server, frontend components and a KVM hypervisor from scratch,
as long as upgrading an existing Abiquo installation.


The cookbook is pretty straightforwatd to use. Just set the node['abiquo']['profile'] attribute
according to the profile you want to install or upgrade and and include one of the following recipes
in the run list:

  • recipe[abiquo] - To perform an installation from scratch
  • recipe[abiquo::upgrade] - To upgrade an existing installation

The available profiles are:

  • monolithic sets up all Abiquo components in one host.
  • remoteservices sets up the Abiquo remote services (except V2V).
  • server sets up the Abiquo management components (API, M) plus the frontend components (UI, websockify).
  • ui sets up the Abiquo UI.
  • websockify sets up the Websockify proxy for noVNC connections.
  • frontend sets up the frontend components, UI and Websockify.
  • v2v sets up the Abiquo V2V conversion manager.
  • kvm sets up an Abiquo KVM cloud node.
  • monitoring sets up the monitoring components of the Abiquo platform
  • ext_services sets up the management components' supporting databases (MariaDB, Redis) and the RabbitMQ message bus.

When installing the Abiquo Monolithic profile, you may also want to set the node['abiquo']['certificate']
properties so the right certificate is used or a self-signed one is generated. You can also use it together
with the hostname cookbook to make sure the node will have it properly configured.


In order to test the cookbook you will need to install Vagrant and VirtualBox.
Once installed you can run the unit and integration tests as follows:

bundle install
bundle exec berks         # Install the cookbook dependencies
bundle exec rake          # Run the unit and style tests
bundle exec rake kitchen  # Run the integration tests

The tests and Gemfile have been developed using Ruby 2.1.5, and that is the recommended Ruby version to use to run the tests.
Other versions may cause conflicts with the versions of the gems Bundler will install.

RHEL testing

Integration tests for RHEL are specified in a separate .kitchen.rhel.yml file. They use a vagrant box named rhel-6.8 which you will need to build and add to the host running the tests as described in bento project repository.

Once the box is available in the host, you can run the tests by specifying the kitchen config file to use and the user and password so the VM can register to RedHat and get a subscription.

$ RHN_USERNAME=some_user RHN_PASSWORD=some_pass bundle exec rake kitchen-basic
