Select via CLI

Prerequisites

How to select?

The default region is defined in the 'openrc' file.
For your own comfort you can create one 'openrc' file per region.

Using the username and password (API credentials) that were provided by SysEleven we source the 'openrc' file and enable the CLI client to talk to the Syseleven Stack.

When using the openstack client we can select the region with
the command line option --os-region-name <region name>.

The following example shows how to use it:

# openstack --os-region-name <region name> <openstack sub command>

openstack --os-region-name cbk server list
