Configuring NSI in OESS
To configure NSI in OESS a few steps need to be completed.
1. Creation of an NSI user (for interacting with the OESS web-services)
2. Creation of an NSI workgroup (for ACL permissions to be configured)
3. adding the NSI user to the NSI workgroup.
4. Configuring /etc/oess/nsi.conf
You will need to specify the nsi user and password, along with the URL to the web-service that you will be using (usually https://<your host>/oess/services/). You probably will also need SSL certificates to communicate with other SSL authenticated NSI aggregates/instances.
Once all of this is completed, restart (or start) the oess-nsi daemon using the init script (/etc/init.d/oess-nsi [re]start)
5. Topology / ACLs for NSI
the NSI topology will contain the ACLs for the NSI workgroup. You most likely will need to submit your topology to an aggregate. This is configurable in /etc/oess/database.xml file <oscars topo="<url>">
