We assume you have docker installed on your machine, check the Linux CERN page.

Start the openstack clients container:

sudo docker run -it

If you want your home and afs directories available in the container, do instead (after getting your afs credentials set):

sudo docker run -it --privileged -e KRB5CCNAME=/tmp/krb5cc_$UID -e AFS_USER=<YOURAFSUSER> -v /tmp:/tmp -v /afs:/afs

Once you got a shell in the container, you can use the clients as before:

[root@28ad6acb3783 ]# . Personal\ <username>
[root@28ad6acb3783 ]# openstack server list
