Chapter 5. Accessing the overcloud

Director generates a script to configure and authenticate interactions with your overcloud from the undercloud. Director saves this file, overcloudrc, in the stack user home directory.


  1. Enter the following command to use the overcloudrc file:

    $ source ~/overcloudrc

    This loads the environment variables that are required to interact with your overcloud from the undercloud CLI.

  2. To return to to the undercloud, enter the following command:

    $ source ~/stackrc
