Updated Vagrant Boxes for OpenStack Cookbook 3rd Edition

A reader reached out a day or so ago to point out that the Vagrant images used in the 3rd edition of the OpenStack Cookbook had gone missing.

Why? Well, long story short, I accidentally the images.

That said, I buit new ones, which live on Atlas here.

Changes in this release:

  • Updated to ubuntu 14.04.5
  • Updated NIC drivers
    • Virtualbox: Virtio
    • VMware: vmxnet3
  • Changed from preseed to kickstart

The images are still rather large. However, as we are in the process of writing the 4th edition, I’ll likely leave them that size.
