OpenStack Compute (Nova)

Separate Nova Metadata

Registered by Vish Ishaya on 2011-10-13

The metadata server currently runs with the ec2 api. This should be broken out into a separate service. It should:
a) run on its own port
b) still be run automatically with nova-api but also have a nova-metadata worker
c) have updated forward rule and flags (instead of using ec2_dmz_ip)
