SUSE Cloud 3 Admin (Embedded)
SUSE OpenStack Cloud 4 Admin is here!
This image incorporates the SUSE Cloud 3 Deployment Guide and automates it through a simple script. It is pre-populated with all of the right media in order to speed things up for deployment.
This Embedded version has all of the software repositories pre-populated so you don’t have to wait an hour for them to be mirrored down.
If you want an appliance with just the media and is ready for a production environment then you can download the SUSE Cloud 3 Admin Appliance
Preload USB Image
This is an ideal format if you are planning to perform installations on physical machines. Your appliance’s disk image will be wrapped in a simple bootable installer that asks only which hard disk to install to, and packaged for use on a USB stick.
Preload ISO (.iso)
This is an ideal format if you are planning to perform installations on physical machines. Your appliance’s disk image will be wrapped in a simple bootable installer that asks only which hard disk to install to, and packaged for use on optical media.
VMware Workstation / VirtualBox (.vmdk)
For virtual machines on VMware, VirtualBox, or KVM-based hypervisors. Test an appliance without formatting any hard disk. VirtualBox and VMware applications are available for most host operating systems. KVM virtualization is for Linux only.
SUSE Cloud / OpenStack / KVM (.qcow2)
If you plan to use SUSE Cloud services to host your server, this format will properly configure the appliance for you to do so. Use WebHooks to inform your cloud of a new image, and upload it automatically.

Once the appliance is deployed then you must finish the setup.
To finish setting up the SUSE Cloud 3 Admin Appliance you will need to
define the network. To help you with the network configuration refer to
the deployment guide and companion deployment questionnaire.
execute yast2 crowbar
Once your network settings are all defined then continue the crowbar install

Before you proceed with install-suse-cloud its important that
the network settings are properly defined and that you have
everything right otherwise you will need to start over.
