Eucalyptus supports two command line interfaces (CLIs). The
administration CLI is installed when you install Eucalyptus
server-side components. The administration CLI is for maintaining
and modifying Eucalyptus.
The other user CLI, called Euca2ools, can be downloaded and installed
on clients. Euca2ools are for end users and can be used with both
Eucalyptus and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
The commands used in this guide assume that the environment variables
exported by a eucarc file for an administrative Eucalyptus user have
been set. For more information, see the Eucalyptus Installation
If you haven't already done so, change the
default password for the administration user. You can do this using
the euare-usermodloginprofile or by logging in to
the Eucalyptus Administrator Console. The first time you log in to
the console, you are prompted for a new password.
