The documentation for MAAS describes how to do all sorts of things with maas-cli, but maas-cli doesn't seem to be available for 12.04.2 LTS. Is there an LTS release of Ubuntu where I can use MAAS in the way it's described in the documentation?

MAAS is available on 12.04 server, but you have to choose it at install time - have you tried this? – jackweirdy Mar 26 '13 at 23:39
The documentation says that I can install MAAS with "apt-get install maas" which is what I've done. I tried "apt-get install-maas-cli" just in case there was a suitable package, but that didn't work either. – Lloyd Mar 28 '13 at 20:37
you'll also need to install the cluster controller and/or region controller packages as appropriate (they're called maas-cluster-controller and maas-region-controller) – jackweirdy Mar 28 '13 at 22:05

Add maas stable repo from, and install maas.

$ sudo maas shell
