Using vanilla novaclient with Rackspace cloud

The Rackspace docs describe how to use rackspace’s custom extensions, but not how to use plain ol’ nova. Using plain nova is important if you want cloud portability in your scripts.

So – for future reference – these are the settings:

export OS_AUTH_URL=https://identity.api.rackspacecloud.com/v2.0/
export OS_REGION_NAME=DFW
export OS_USERNAME=<username>
export OS_TENANT_NAME=<clientid>
export OS_PASSWORD=<password>
export OS_PROJECT_ID=<clientid>
export OS_NO_CACHE=1
unset NOVA_RAX_AUTH
unset OS_AUTH_SYSTEM
