I am using juju with openstack, when it bootstraps, it dose not deploy zookeeper on the bootstrap VM. I logged into this VM to verify.

1) How is zookeeper and other software installed on juju VM, is it ssh and apt-get during bootstrap process.

When you bootstrap, the zookeeper machine is not supposed to exist already, but you should be able to boot new vm with nova.

Here is how it looks like here:

melmoth@x220:~$ nova list
| ID | Name | Status | Networks |
melmoth@x220:~$ juju bootstrap
2013-06-20 14:00:44,252 INFO Bootstrapping environment 'kikoo' (origin: ppa type: openstack)...
2013-06-20 14:00:58,079 INFO 'bootstrap' command finished successfully
melmoth@x220:~$ nova list
|                  ID                  |          Name         | Status | Networks |
| 705b97fa-6579-43e2-af3a-f504b74b7ee2 | juju kikoo instance 0 | BUILD  |          |

The new "juju kikoo instance 0" machine is the one where zookeeper will be installed.

I can see how the boot process is going with:

nova console-log 705b97fa-6579-43e2-af3a-f504b74b7ee2

You may want to run "juju --verbose bootstrap" in order to learn more about why is there no new vm launched.

Here is my environments.yaml file:

      type: openstack
      control-bucket: pierre-bucket
      admin-secret:  asecretphrase 
      default-series: precise
      #be sure you can boot machine using nova boot with this image:
      default-image-id: f2ca48ce-30d5-4f1f-9075-12e64510368d
      juju-origin: ppa 

See for details.
