What's in this directory?

These are files containing cloud images of the Debian GNU/Linux operating system designed for OpenStack. The files in this directory are specifically for the amd64 architecture.

How do I use these files?

The files here are qcow2 or raw images, ready to use.

Once you have downloaded the image, you would typically need to upload it to Glance, using a command like this one:

glance image-create --name="Debian Jessie 64-bit" \
	--disk-format=qcow2 --container-format=bare \
	--property architecture=x86_64 \
        --progress \
	--file debian-8.0.0-openstack-amd64.qcow2

Then you can boot a new virtual machine instance using the uploaded image ID.

Will the image work on another cloud platform than OpenStack?

If your platform supports the EC2 style metadata server (which is contacted by cloud-init), and also supports an HDD image (using either raw or qcow2 format), then most likely it will work. Note that it will not work on Amazon EC2 if you are not using the HVM mode.

How can I verify my download is correct and exactly what has been created by Debian?

There are files here (SHA1SUMS, SHA256SUMS, etc.) which contain checksums of the images. These checksum files are also signed - see SHA1SUMS.sign, SHA256SUMS.sign, etc. Once you've downloaded an image, you can check:

For more information about how to do these steps, read the verification guide.

Logging into the image

The default login account for this image is "debian". It is in this account that cloud-init will write the public key to allow ssh logins.

Other questions?

Other questions can be forwarded to the OpenStack packaging team: openstack-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org.
