Euca2ools is the Eucalyptus command line interface for interacting
with web services. This set of tools was written in Python, relying
on the Boto library and M2Crypto toolkit.
Most Euca2ools commands are compatible with Amazon’s EC2, S3, and IAM
services and generally accept the same options and honor the same
environmental variables. This means that you can use Euca2ools with
both the Eucalyptus cloud-computing platform and Amazon EC2, S3, and
IAM. A few other commands are specific to Eucalyptus and are noted
in the command description.
Some operations in Euca2ools are not supported in certain
Eucalyptus networking modes. For example, security groups and
elastic IPs are not supported in both Static and System networking
modes. See your cloud administrator for details. For more
information about networking modes, see the Installation Guide
