Chapter 1. Introduction

NixOps is a tool for deploying NixOS machines in a network or cloud. It takes as input a declarative specification of a set of “logical” machines and then performs any necessary steps or actions to realise that specification: instantiate cloud machines, build and download dependencies, stop and start services, and so on. NixOps has several nice properties:

  • It’s declarative: NixOps specifications state the desired configuration of the machines, and NixOps then figures out the actions necessary to realise that configuration. So there is no difference between doing a new deployment or doing a redeployment: the resulting machine configurations will be the same.

  • It performs fully automated deployment. This is a good thing because it ensures that deployments are reproducible.

  • It performs provisioning. Based on the given deployment specification, it will start missing virtual machines, create disk volumes, and so on.

  • It’s based on the Nix package manager, which has a purely functional model that sets it apart from other package managers. Concretely this means that multiple versions of packages can coexist on a system, that packages can be upgraded or rolled back atomically, that dependency specifications can be guaranteed to be complete, and so on.

  • It’s based on NixOS, which has a declarative approach to describing the desired configuration of a machine. This makes it an ideal basis for automated configuration management of sets of machines. NixOS also has desirable properties such as (nearly) atomic upgrades, the ability to roll back to previous configurations, and more.

  • It’s multi-cloud. Machines in a single NixOps deployment can be deployed to different target environments. For instance, one logical machine can be deployed to a local “physical” machine, another to an automatically instantiated Amazon EC2 instance in the eu-west-1 region, another in the us-east-1 region, and so on. NixOps arranges the necessary network configuration to ensure that these machines can communicate securely with each other (e.g. by setting up encrypted tunnels).

  • It supports separation of “logical” and “physical” aspects of a deployment. NixOps specifications are modular, and this makes it easy to separate the parts that say what logical machines should do from where they should do it. For instance, the former might say that machine X should run a PostgreSQL database and machine Y should run an Apache web server, while the latter might state that X should be instantiated as an EC2 m1.large machine while Y should be instantiated as an m1.small. We could also have a second physical specification that says that X and Y should both be instantiated as VirtualBox VMs on the developer’s workstation. So the same logical specification can easily be deployed to different environments.

  • It uses a single formalism (the Nix expression language) for package management and system configuration management. This makes it very easy to add ad hoc packages to a deployment.

  • It combines system configuration management and provisioning. Provisioning affects configuration management: for instance, if we instantiate an EC2 machine as part of a larger deployment, it may be necessary to put the IP address or hostname of that machine in a configuration file on another machine. NixOps takes care of this automatically.

  • It can provision non-machine cloud resources such as Amazon S3 buckets and EC2 keypairs.

This manual describes how to install NixOps and how to use it. The appendix contains a copy of the NixOps manual page, which is also available by running man nixops.

Chapter 2. Installation

NixOps runs on Linux and Mac OS X. (It may also run on other platforms; the main prerequisite is that Nix runs on your platform.) Installing it requires the following steps:

  1. Install the Nix package manager. It’s available from the Nix website in binary form for several platforms. Please refer to the installation instruction in the Nix manual for more details.

  2. Install the latest version of NixOps.

    $ nix-env -iA nixops
    

Chapter 3. Overview

This chapter gives a quick overview of how to use NixOps.

3.1. Deploying a VirtualBox VM

NixOps deploys machines on the basis of a declarative description of what those machines should do, and where they should be deployed to. These descriptions are specified in the Nix expression language used by the Nix package manager. Example 3.1 shows a minimal specification of a network consisting of only one logical machine named webserver.

Example 3.1. trivial.nix: logical network specification

{
  network.description = "Web server";

  webserver =
    { config, pkgs, ... }:
    { services.httpd.enable = true;
      services.httpd.adminAddr = "alice@example.org";
      services.httpd.documentRoot = "${pkgs.valgrind.doc}/share/doc/valgrind/html";
      networking.firewall.allowedTCPPorts = [ 80 ];
    };
}

This specification consists of a set of top-level attributes describing logical machines (namely webserver) and meta-information (namely network.description). Each attribute not named network describes a logical machine. The value of each logical machine attribute is a NixOS configuration module, which describes the desired configuration of the corresponding machine. Thus, the logical machine webserver should have the Apache httpd web server running, and its document root (rather arbitrarily for demonstration purposes) should be the documentation of the Valgrind package.

To deploy this machine, we also need to provide configuration options that tell NixOps to what environment it should be deployed. Example 3.2 specifies that webserver should be deployed as a VirtualBox instance. Note that for this to work the vboxnet0 network has to exist - you can add it in the VirtualBox general settings under Networks - Host-only Networks if necessary. If you are running NixOps in a headless environment, then you should also add the option deployment.virtualbox.headless = true; to the configuration. Otherwise, VirtualBox will fail when it tries to open a graphical display on the host's desktop.

Example 3.2. trivial-vbox.nix: VirtualBox physical network specification

{
  webserver =
    { config, pkgs, ... }:
    { deployment.targetEnv = "virtualbox";
      deployment.virtualbox.memorySize = 1024; # megabytes
    };
}

Before we can deploy the network we need to use the command nixops create to create a NixOps deployment that contains any state associated with the deployment (such as information about instantiated VMs). At creation time, we need to specify the Nix expressions that constitute the complete deployment specification. So to create a deployment for deploying the Apache web server to VirtualBox, we would do:

$ nixops create ./trivial.nix ./trivial-vbox.nix -d trivial
33bced96-5f26-11e1-b9d7-9630d48abec1

Here -d trivial gives the symbolic name trivial to the deployment. Deployments can be identified in two ways: using the UUID printed by nixops create, or using the symbolic name you specified at creation time.

You can print a list of existing deployments using nixops list:

+--------------------------------------+-----------+--------------+------------+------------+
|                 UUID                 |   Name    | Description  | # Machines |    Type    |
+--------------------------------------+-----------+--------------+------------+------------+
| 33bced96-5f26-11e1-b9d7-9630d48abec1 |  trivial  |  Web server  |     0      |            |
+--------------------------------------+-----------+--------------+------------+------------+

The command nixops info shows the current deployment state:

$ nixops info -d trivial
Network UUID: 33bced96-5f26-11e1-b9d7-9630d48abec1
Network description: Web server

+-----------+--------+------------+-------------+------------+
|   Name    | Status |    Type    | Resource Id | IP address |
+-----------+--------+------------+-------------+------------+
| webserver |  New   | virtualbox |             |            |
+-----------+--------+------------+-------------+------------+

The machine status New indicates that the logical machine webserver hasn’t been created yet. The -d option specifies which deployment to use; you can use the symbolic name (-d trivial) or the UUID (-d 33bced96-5f26-11e1-b9d7-9630d48abec1). You can also set the the environment variable NIXOPS_DEPLOYMENT.

The actual deployment is done by running nixops deploy:

$ nixops deploy -d trivial
creating VirtualBox VM ‘webserver’...
Virtual machine 'nixops-33bced96-5f26-11e1-b9d7-9630d48abec1-webserver' is created and registered.

NixOps performs the following steps to do the deployment:

  • It creates missing machines. In this case, a VirtualBox instance for the logical machine webserver is started. NixOps then waits to obtain its IP address.

  • It builds the NixOS machine configurations locally. For instance, here Valgrind is built or downloaded because our machine configuration has a dependency on it.

  • It copies the closure of each machine configuration to the corresponding machine.

  • It activates the configuration on each machine. For instance, it starts the httpd systemd service on the webserver machine. This is the only step that has a visible effect; all prior steps do not affect the active configuration of the machines.

The nixops info command will show that a machine was created:

$ nixops info -d trivial
Network UUID: 33bced96-5f26-11e1-b9d7-9630d48abec1
Network description: Web server

+-----------+--------+------------+-----------------------------------------------------+----------------+
|   Name    | Status |    Type    |                    Resource Id                      |   IP address   |

+-----------+--------+------------+-----------------------------------------------------+----------------+

Visit http://192.168.56.101 in a web browser should now show the Valgrind documentation. You can also log in to the virtual machine as root:

$ nixops ssh -d trivial webserver
connecting to 192.168.56.101...
[root@webserver:~]#

The command nixops ssh is a convenience wrapper around ssh that passes the right IP address and SSH identity for the specified logical machine. (NixOps automatically creates a unique SSH key pair for communicating with each VirtualBox instance.)

Redeployment after making a change to the specification is simply a matter of running nixops deploy again. If we do this for the example, NixOps will notice that the webserver machine already exists and that most or all dependencies are already present, so it won’t create a new VirtualBox instance or need to build and copy a lot of dependencies. Thus redeployment typically only takes a few seconds:

$ time nixops deploy -d trivial
building all machine configurations...
copying closure to machine ‘webserver’...
activating new configuration on machine ‘webserver’...
real    0m3.700s

If you want to get rid of the virtual machines created by NixOps, you can run nixops destroy:

$ nixops destroy -d trivial
warning: are you sure you want to destroy VirtualBox VM ‘webserver’? (y/N) y
webserver> destroying VirtualBox VM...
webserver> 0%...10%...20%...30%...40%...50%...60%...70%...80%...90%...100%

You can use the option --confirm to confirm all questions. This is useful for automated deployment, but potentially dangerous.

3.1.1. Deploying multiple machines

A network consisting of only one logical machine is not very exciting. Example 3.3 shows a network consisting of three machines: a load balancer (named proxy) that uses Apache’s mod_proxy to do reverse proxying, and two backend web servers (backend1 and backend2) that serve the actual content. One important thing to note is that if you want to refer to another machine (e.g. in a configuration file), you can use a hostname equal to the logical name of the machine, as in the line

BalancerMember http://backend1 retry=0

This works because NixOps generates a /etc/hosts file that contains entries for all the logical machines in the network, mapping names to each machine’s IP address. Also note that because the two backend machines have identical configurations, we can use a let-binding to define the configuration only once.

Example 3.3. load-balancer.nix: logical network specification

let

  backend =
    { config, pkgs, ... }:
    { services.httpd.enable = true;
      services.httpd.adminAddr = "alice@example.org";
      services.httpd.documentRoot = "${pkgs.valgrind.doc}/share/doc/valgrind/html";
      networking.firewall.allowedTCPPorts = [ 80 ];
    };

in

{
  network.description = "Load balancing network";

  proxy =
    { config, pkgs, nodes, ... }:
    { services.httpd.enable = true;
      services.httpd.adminAddr = "bob@example.org";
      services.httpd.extraModules = ["proxy_balancer" "lbmethod_byrequests"];
      services.httpd.extraConfig =
        ''
          <Proxy balancer://cluster>
            Allow from all
            BalancerMember http://backend1 retry=0
            BalancerMember http://backend2 retry=0
          </Proxy>
          ProxyPass         /    balancer://cluster/
          ProxyPassReverse  /    balancer://cluster/
        '';
      networking.firewall.allowedTCPPorts = [ 80 ];
    };

  backend1 = backend;
  backend2 = backend;
}

To deploy it, we need a physical specification, shown in Example 3.4. Deployment is as follows:

$ nixops create ./load-balancer.nix ./load-balancer-vbox.nix -d load-balancer-vbox
$ nixops deploy -d load-balancer-vbox

Note that NixOps creates and deploys the VMs in parallel to speed things up.

Example 3.4. load-balancer-vbox.nix: VirtualBox physical network specification

let
  vbox = { deployment.targetEnv = "virtualbox"; };
in
{ proxy    = vbox;
  backend1 = vbox;
  backend2 = vbox;
}

3.2. Deploying to Amazon EC2

Example 3.5 shows a physical specification that deploys the load balancer network to Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). It states that the three machines need to be instantiated in EC2 region eu-west-1. It also specifies a non-machine cloud resource: namely, the EC2 key pair to be used to access the machine via SSH. (It is possible to use manually created EC2 key pairs, but it’s easier to let NixOps provision them.)

Example 3.5. load-balancer-ec2.nix: EC2 physical network specification

let

  region = "eu-west-1";
  accessKeyId = "dev"; # symbolic name looked up in ~/.ec2-keys

  ec2 =
    { resources, ... }:
    { deployment.targetEnv = "ec2";
      deployment.ec2.accessKeyId = accessKeyId;
      deployment.ec2.region = region;
      deployment.ec2.instanceType = "m1.small";
      deployment.ec2.keyPair = resources.ec2KeyPairs.my-key-pair;
    };

in
{ proxy    = ec2;
  backend1 = ec2;
  backend2 = ec2;

  # Provision an EC2 key pair.
  resources.ec2KeyPairs.my-key-pair =
    { inherit region accessKeyId; };
}

Deployment is as follows:

$ nixops create ./load-balancer.nix ./load-balancer-ec2.nix -d load-balancer-ec2
$ nixops deploy -d load-balancer-ec2
my-key-pair> uploading EC2 key pair ‘charon-8e50b4b5-d7f9-11e2-b91c-23f8eaf468f4-my-key-pair’...
backend1...> creating EC2 instance (AMI ‘ami-8badbdff’, type ‘m1.small’, region ‘eu-west-1’)...
backend2...> creating EC2 instance (AMI ‘ami-8badbdff’, type ‘m1.small’, region ‘eu-west-1’)...
proxy......> creating EC2 instance (AMI ‘ami-8badbdff’, type ‘m1.small’, region ‘eu-west-1’)...
backend2...> waiting for IP address...
...
proxy......> activation finished successfully
backend2...> activation finished successfully
backend1...> activation finished successfully

Here NixOps has created an EC2 key pair and started three EBS-backed instances running the default NixOS AMI. Other than that, deployment is the same as for VirtualBox: NixOps builds the machine configurations, copies their closure over to the EC2 instances, and activates the new configurations.

The command nixops info shows all provisioned resources, not just machines:

$ nixops info -d load-balancer-ec2
...
+-------------+-----------------+----------------------------+---------------------------------------------------------+----------------+
| Name        |      Status     | Type                       | Resource Id                                             | IP address     |
+-------------+-----------------+----------------------------+---------------------------------------------------------+----------------+
| backend1    | Up / Up-to-date | ec2 [eu-west-1a; m1.small] | i-0ec4bc43                                              | 54.228.61.132  |
| backend2    | Up / Up-to-date | ec2 [eu-west-1a; m1.small] | i-0cc4bc41                                              | 54.216.26.111  |
| proxy       | Up / Up-to-date | ec2 [eu-west-1a; m1.small] | i-08c4bc45                                              | 54.216.171.138 |
| my-key-pair | Up / Up-to-date | ec2-keypair [eu-west-1]    | charon-8e50b4b5-d7f9-11e2-b91c-23f8eaf468f4-my-key-pair |                |
+-------------+-----------------+----------------------------+---------------------------------------------------------+----------------+

The resources can be destroyed by running:

$ nixops destroy -d load-balancer-ec2

This terminates the EC2 instances and deletes the EC2 key pair.

Deployment to EC2 has some prerequisites.

  • Obviously, you need an EC2 account.

  • You need to add your AWS access key ID and secret key to the file ~/.ec2-keys, as follows:

    AKIAIUTDLWJKSLSJDLDQ Grsjf37cDKKWndklek3jdxnSKE3fkskDLqdldDl/ dev # my AWS development account
    

    Here dev is a symbolic name for the AWS account, which you can use in deployment.ec2.accessKeyId.

    Alternatively, you can set the environment variables EC2_ACCESS_KEY and EC2_SECRET_KEY.

  • You need to ensure that your EC2 security groups are set up to allow (at the very least) SSH traffic from your network. By default, NixOps uses the security group default. You can set the option deployment.ec2.securityGroups to use other security groups:

    deployment.ec2.securityGroups = [ "allow-ssh" "allow-http" ];
    

  • You need to set deployment.ec2.region to the EC2 region you want to deploy to. Note that key pairs and security groups are region-specific.

3.3. Deploying to Google Compute Engine

Example 3.6 shows a physical specification that deploys the load balancer network to Google Compute Engine(GCE). It states that the three machines need to be instantiated in GCE region europe-west1-b, based on the unstable branch of NixOS. It also specifies an alternative load balancer implemented using GCE Forwarding Rule.

Example 3.6. load-balancer-gce.nix: GCE physical network specification

let

  # change this as necessary or wipe and use ENV vars
  credentials = {
    project = "myproject";
    serviceAccount = "000000000000-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx@developer.gserviceaccount.com";
    accessKey = "/path/to/user/key.pem";
  };

  gce = { resources, ...}:  {
    networking.firewall.allowedTCPPorts = [ 80 ];
    deployment.targetEnv = "gce";
    deployment.gce = credentials // {
      region = "europe-west1-b";
      tags = [ "public-http" ];
      network = resources.gceNetworks.lb-net;
    };
  };

in {

  # use nixos-unstable image
  # this specification is identical to the default one and can omitted
  resources.gceImages.bootstrap = credentials // {
    sourceUri = "gs://nixos/nixos-14.10pre-git-x86_64-linux.raw.tar.gz";
  };

  # create a network that allows SSH traffic(by default), pings
  # and HTTP traffic for machines tagged "public-http"
  resources.gceNetworks.lb-net = credentials // {
    addressRange = "192.168.4.0/24";
    firewall = {
      allow-http = {
        targetTags = [ "public-http" ];
        allowed.tcp = [ 80 ];
      };
      allow-ping.allowed.icmp = null;
    };
  };

  # by default, health check pings port 80, so we don't have to set anything
  resources.gceHTTPHealthChecks.plain-hc = credentials;

  resources.gceTargetPools.backends = { resources, nodes, ...}: credentials // {
    region = "europe-west1";
    healthCheck = resources.gceHTTPHealthChecks.plain-hc;
    machines = with nodes; [ backend1 backend2 ];
  };

  resources.gceForwardingRules.lb = { resources, ...}: credentials // {
    protocol = "TCP";
    region = "europe-west1";
    portRange = "80";
    targetPool = resources.gceTargetPools.backends;
    description = "Alternative HTTP Load Balancer";
  };

  proxy    = gce;
  backend1 = gce;
  backend2 = gce;

}

Deployment is as follows:

$ nixops create ./load-balancer.nix ./load-balancer-gce.nix -d load-balancer-gce

Here NixOps has created a GCE network, a health check, a load balancer, a bootstrap image based on the unstable branch of NixOS, 3 root disks for the instances and started three instances running the default NixOS image. Other than that, deployment is the same as for VirtualBox: NixOps builds the machine configurations, copies their closure over to the GCE instances, and activates the new configurations.

The command nixops info shows all provisioned resources, not just machines:

$ nixops info -d load-balancer-gce

The resources can be destroyed by running:

$ nixops destroy -d load-balancer-gce

This terminates the GCE instances and deletes the alternative GCE-based load balancer.

Deployment to GCE has some prerequisites.

  • Obviously, you need an GCE service account which you can create from the Developer Console.

  • Once you've created a new GCE service account and downloaded the generated private key (in the PKCS12 format), you'll need to convert the key to PEM format by running the following command:

    $ openssl pkcs12 -in pkey.pkcs12 -passin pass:notasecret -nodes -nocerts | openssl rsa -out pkey.pem
    

  • All GCE resources and instances must belong to a GCE project which you can create from the Developer Console. Alternatively, you could use a project you already have. Several deployments can coexist in a single project and with manually-created resources, as long as you don't exceed the quotas.

  • You must ensure that the GCE service account you've created has sufficient permissions to manage resources in the project.

  • You must supply the credentials(project, service account name and path to the key) via either *.project, *.serviceAccount and *.accessKey options or GCE_PROJECT, GCE_SERVICE_ACCOUNT and ACCESS_KEY_PATH environment variables. Options take precedence over environment variables and are per-resource/-instance.

  • You need to ensure that GCE firewall is configured correctly. The default GCE network which is created for each project and to which all instances belong by default, only allows SSH and internal traffic. Usually, this is not enough and you want to create a network managed by NixOps with custom firewall settings. By default, the NixOps-managed networks allow SSH traffic because it is absolutely required to manage the instances. In addition to allowing traffic based on IP and port ranges, firewall can also selectively enable traffic for instances with specific tags, such as public-http in the example, which is assigned to the instances you want to receive connections on port 80.

  • Many resources are region- and zone-specific, and thus you need to set *.region options where applicable.

GCE limitations and quirks to be aware of.

  • A bootstrap image needs to be created for each deployment because it is impossible to create public images. Default bootstrap image specification can be overriden by defining resources.gceImages.bootstrap. Additionally, the instance's bootstrapImage option can be used to specify an instance-specific bootstrap image.

  • There's no "native" support for starting and stopping instances. NixOps emulates starting and stoping by creating and tearing down GCE instances, but preserving the disk contents.

    While this mostly just works, GCE ends up charging you a minimum of uptime (which was 10 minutes at the moment of writing this manual) thus too frequent start/stop cycling ends up expensive.

    Start/stop cycling of an instance which uses an ephemeral IP address often causes the IP address to change, which breaks certain features such as encrypted tunnels until repaired by deploy.

    Another important difference is that NixOps attempts to replicate the last known state of the instance(attached disks, tags). Thus, if the state was modified manually (e.g. via gcloud tool), such changes are lost in a start/stop cycle.

    Consider rebooting instead which doesn't have these limitations and, in addition, is faster.

  • Creation, modification and deletion of resources and instances are not idempotent in GCE.

    In practice, this means that if you hit Ctrl+C or an error happens, while NixOps is creating, destroying or otherwise changing the state of a resource, the state of the resource expected by NixOps and the actual state may diverge.

    Usually, this doesn't cause too much trouble, but a good practice is to follow each failed or aborted deployment operation with a deploy --check run to detect and fix any state mismatch(es).

  • The instances which are members of target pools need a constantly-running configure-forwarding-rules service, which is enabled by default, and is not otherwise required. Substantial RAM savings for a large deployment can be obtained by disabling the service if it isn't needed.

Migration of resources between zones and putting previously-existing resources under NixOps control.

  • Disks can be migrated by making a snapshot and then initializing a new NixOps-managed disk from it, possibly, in another zone or region.

  • Migrating an instance to another zone via backup functionality is currently impossible. It is still possible to create a new instance and migrate each disk by hand using snapshots.

  • Putting a manually-created static IP resource under NixOps management is done this way: create a resource to temporarily hold the IP address, such as an instance or a forwarding rule; delete the static IP resource, which still leaves the IP address itself under your control thanks to the holding resource; create a new static IP address with resources.gceStaticIPs.$NAME.ipAddress set to the IP address of the holding resource; delete the holding resource after checking that the static IP resource has been correctly created and holds the original IP address. You must practice the migration procedure on a test static IP resource.

    If by accident or after ignoring the above advice, you lose control of a valuable IP address, you must act very fast and attempt to create a new static IP resource with with resources.gceStaticIPs.$NAME.ipAddress set to the IP address itself that you want to regain control over. If you are late and the IP address has been given to someone else, it still makes sense to repeately try reserving the address because most likely it is in use as an emphemeral one and thus will become available soon. Needless to say, you want to avoid a situation like this at all costs.

    IP addresses are region-specific and thus most likely can't be migrated to another region. It is impossible to migrate an IP address to another project without temporarily losing control over it.

3.4. Deploying to Microsoft Azure

Note: only ARM(Azure Resource Manager) mode is supported by this backend.

Example 3.7 shows a physical specification that deploys the load balancer network to Azure along with the absolute minimum of accessory resources that need to be created to be able to deploy virtual machines. It states that the three machines need to be instantiated in azure location West US. It also specifies an alternative load balancer implemented using a native Azure Load Balancer resource.

Example 3.7. load-balancer-azure.nix: Azure physical network specification

let

  # change this as necessary or delete and use ENV vars
  credentials = {
    subscriptionId = "00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000";
    authority = "https://login.windows.net/AUTHORITY.onmicrosoft.com";
    user = "user@AUTHORITY.onmicrosoft.com";
    password = "**********";
  };

  azure = { backendAddressPools ? [] }: { resources, ...}:  {
    deployment.targetEnv = "azure";
    deployment.azure = credentials // {
      location = "westus";
      size = "Standard_A0"; # minimal size that supports load balancing
      availabilitySet = resources.azureAvailabilitySets.set;
      networkInterfaces.default.backendAddressPools = backendAddressPools;
    };
  };

  azure_backend = {resources, ...}@args:
    azure { backendAddressPools = [{loadBalancer = resources.azureLoadBalancers.lb;}]; } args;

in {

  resources.azureReservedIPAddresses.lb-ip = credentials // {
    location = "West US";
  };

  resources.azureAvailabilitySets.set = credentials // {
    location = "westus";
  };

  resources.azureLoadBalancers.lb = {resources,...}: credentials // {
    location = "westus";
    frontendInterfaces.default.publicIpAddress = resources.azureReservedIPAddresses.lb-ip;
    loadBalancingRules.web = {
      frontendPort = 80;
      backendPort = 80;
    };
  };

  proxy    = azure {};
  backend1 = azure_backend;
  backend2 = azure_backend;

}
  

The deployment proceeds like this:

Here NixOps has created a resource group, storage, container for blobs, root image blob, availability set, load balancer and started three instances running the default NixOS image. Other than that, deployment is the same as for VirtualBox: NixOps builds the machine configurations, copies their closure over to the Azure instances, and activates the new configurations.

Opening http://40.78.60.145, http://40.78.58.17, http://40.78.59.32, or http://40.78.67.191 in a web browser should now show the Nixos homepage. Also, you can log into any of the machines as root:

$ nixops ssh -d load-balancer-azure backend1
connecting to 40.78.60.145...
[root@backend1:~]#

The resources can be destroyed by running:

$ nixops destroy -d load-balancer-azure

This terminates the Azure instances and deletes the alternative native load balancer.

3.4.1. Prequisites

  • You need Azure credentials to authenticate requests. The authentication methods supported are user/password and service principal/password. You need to ensure your Azure account has an Active Directory, and add a user or service principal to it. Refer to these guides: creating an active directory and users and applications and service principals.

  • You must supply the credentials(subscription ID, authority URL, user or service principal, password) to your deployments via either *.subscriptionId, *.authority, *.user, *.servicePrincipal and *.password options or AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID, AZURE_AUTHORITY_URL, AZURE_USER, AZURE_SERVICE_PRINCIPAL and AZURE_PASSWORD environment variables. Options take precedence over environment variables and are specified per resource/machine.

    You must specify either user or service principal but not both. If either *.user or *.servicePrincipal is set, both AZURE_USER and AZURE_SERVICE_PRINCIPAL are ignored for the resource.

    Example credentials for user/password authentication:

    credentials = {
      subscriptionId = "00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000";
      authority = "https://login.windows.net/YOURDIRECTORYNAME.onmicrosoft.com";
      user = "user@YOURDIRECTORYNAME.onmicrosoft.com";
      password = "**********";
    };
    

    Example credentials for service principal/password authentication:

    credentials = {
      subscriptionId = "00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000";
      authority = "https://login.windows.net/YOURDIRECTORYNAME.onmicrosoft.com";
      servicePrincipal = "44444444-4444-4444-4444-444444444444";
      password = "**********";
    };
    

    Authority URL can also be specified as https://login.windows.net/TENANT_ID.

  • You need to ensure that SSH ports of all machines are reachable either directly via machines' public IP addresses or via NAT rules on the public IP address of a load balancer.

3.4.2. Default resources

If a virtual machine specification omits resourceGroup, storage, ephemeralDiskContainer, networkInterfaces.default.subnet.network or rootDiskImageBlob, NixOps will automatically generate "default" resources. You can see them using nixops info command. This substantially reduces the boilerplate code for simple deployments without affecting the complex ones.

There's only one default resource group. Default storage accounts and networks are created in each datacenter location where they are needed.

Disk containers are created in each storage account that is used by a virtual machine with ephemeralDiskContainer left empty.

Root image BLOBs are created in each disk container that is used by a virtual machine with rootDiskImageBlob left empty.

The default root disk image BLOB resources can be set to mirror your custom image instead of the default NixOps-provided one using:

$ nixops set-args -d load-balancer-azure --argstr azure-image-url "http://mystorage.windows.net/images/nixos-custom.vhd"

$ nixops info -d load-balancer-azure
...
Nix arguments: azure-image-url = "http://mystorage.windows.net/images/nixos-custom.vhd"
...

$ nixops set-args -d load-balancer-azure --unset azure-image-url

3.4.3. Default subresources

Several Azure resources can have multiple subresources. For example, network can have several subnets. In each such case, a default subresource is created unless specified otherwise and referencing a subresource via its "parent" references the subresource named "default".

One such resource type is virtual network with its subnetworks. A virtual network specification

resources.azureVirtualNetworks.network = credentials // {
  location = "West EU";
};

is identical to

resources.azureVirtualNetworks.network = credentials // {
  location = "West EU";
  subnets.default = { ... };
};

and when referencing the default subnet

networkInterfaces.default.subnet.network = resources.azureVirtualNetworks.network;

is identical to:

networkInterfaces.default.subnet.network = resources.azureVirtualNetworks.network;
networkInterfaces.default.subnet.name = "default";

Another example is load balancer backend address pools. A load balancer has a default backend address pool:

backendAddressPools = [ "default" ];

and a virtual machine can join the default pool with

  networkInterfaces.default.backendAddressPools =
      [{loadBalancer = resources.azureLoadBalancers.lb;}];

instead of

  networkInterfaces.default.backendAddressPools =
      [{loadBalancer = resources.azureLoadBalancers.lb; name = "default"; }];

3.4.4. Backups

Backups are implemented as BLOB snapshots. Deleting a BLOB, also deletes all of its backups.

Backups are tracked by BLOB URLs and not disk names, so if an ephemeral disk changes its mediaLink property, it will be treated as a different/new disk for backup purposes. Renaming a disk, but keeping mediaLink property unchanged preserves backups.

3.4.5. Storage resources and key management

Each storage account has two access keys, any of which can be used to authenticate operations. The keys are automatically generated when a storage account is created and can be independently regenerated at any time using azure-cli. Running deploy --check on the storage account fetches the updated key(s).

activeKey property specifies which of the keys NixOps should use to authenticate storage operations. This allows you to regenerate the inactive key, and then switch to using it, providing for seamless key replacement.

All storage resources(containers, BLOBs, queues etc) allow you to explicitly specify the access key, but this is only useful if the storage account is not managed by NixOps. If the storage account is managed by NixOps, all you need is to specify the parent resource (storage account for containers, container for BLOBs etc) and NixOps will infer the storage account and active key automatically.

3.4.6. Managing virtual machines without public IP addresses

If a virtual machine doesn't have a public IP address (has ip.obtain set to false), NixOps is unable to reach the SSH port of the machine and manage it. However, if you route the SSH port of the machine via an inboud NAT rule to a load balancer frontend interface that has a public IP address, NixOps will automatically detect and use this to manage the machine.

In this example, NixOps will access the machine via lb-ip:2201 :

resources.azureLoadBalancers.lb = {resources,...}: credentials // {
  location = "westus";
  frontendInterfaces.default.publicIpAddress = resources.azureReservedIPAddresses.lb-ip;
  inboundNatRules.machine3-ssh = {
    frontendPort = 2201;
    backendPort = 22;
  };
  inboundNatRules.machine4-ssh = {
    frontendPort = 2202;
    backendPort = 22;
  };
};

machine3.deployment.azure = {
  networkInterfaces.default ={
    ip.obtain = false;
    inboundNatRules = [{loadBalancer = resources.azureLoadBalancers.lb; name = "machine3-ssh";}];
  };
};

3.4.7. Resource names and IDs

The best way to specify a reference to a resource that is managed by NixOps is via resources.azure*.resourceName. However, if you need to reference a resource not managed by NixOps, you can do so by resource name or ID.

If the property description says "The name or resource of..." such as for resource groups and storages, the reference is by name:

  resources.azureResourceGroups.group = credentials // {
    name = "my-test-group";
    location = "West US";
  };

  resources.azureAvailabilitySets.set1 = {resources,...}: credentials // {
    resourceGroup = resources.azureResourceGroups.group;
    location = "West US";
  };

  resources.azureAvailabilitySets.set2 = credentials // {
    resourceGroup = "my-test-group";
    location = "West US";
  };

If the property description says "The Azure Resource Id or NixOps resource...", the reference is by full Azure resource ID:

  resources.azureVirtualNetworks.network = credentials // {
    name = "test-network";
    location = "West US";
    addressSpace = [ "10.1.0.0/16" "10.4.0.0/16" ];
    subnets = {
      default.addressPrefix = "10.1.11.0/24";
      GatewaySubnet.addressPrefix = "10.1.10.0/24";
    };
  };

  resources.azureVirtualNetworkGateways.gateway1 = {resources,...}: credentials // {
    location = "West US";
    gatewayType = "RouteBased";
    subnet.network = resources.azureVirtualNetworks.network;
    subnet.name = "GatewaySubnet";
  };

  resources.azureVirtualNetworkGateways.gateway2 = credentials // {
    location = "West US";
    gatewayType = "RouteBased";
    subnet.network = "/subscriptions/00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000/resourceGroups" +
                     "/nixops-00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000-def-group/providers" +
                     "/Microsoft.Network/virtualNetworks/test-network";
    subnet.name = "GatewaySubnet";
  };

3.4.8. Azure limitations and quirks to be aware of:

  • You can replace the root disk of a VM, but root disks of different VMs aren't interchangeable because Azure only allows provisioning info to be supplied when creating a new root disk.

  • BLOB URLs must use HTTPS protocol.

  • BLOB MD5 hash reported by Azure is not reliable. It is just another piece of user-provided metadata and can't be used to check BLOB contents.

  • BLOB type cannot be changed via copy operation. If a BLOB is created by copying another BLOB(using copyFromBlob property), and blobType property value doesn't match the type of the source BLOB, deploy --check will keep complaining until you change blobType property value to match the source BLOB type.

  • Virtual machines that are members of a load balancer backend pool must belong to an availability set, and must belong to the same set.

  • Drivers of older linux versions don't automatically detect removed disks and rescan has to be triggered manually. While NixOps tries to do it for you, if it fails, you can run sg_scan /dev/disk/by-lun/X to drop the removed disk.

  • Removal of a disk which is currently in use by dm-mapper(eg via cryptsetup), creates a rather broken state: device node is not completely released, reattaching the disk doesn't fix anything. This can be fixed with a reboot. You can trigger such a state for example if your current working dir is within the disk being unmounted, which prevents umount from actually releasing the underlying dm-mapper disk, which prevents dm-mapper from releasing the Azure disk device.

  • Creation, modification and deletion of resources and instances are not idempotent in Azure.

    In practice, this means that if you hit Ctrl+C or an error happens while NixOps is creating, destroying or otherwise changing the state of a resource, the state of the resource expected by NixOps and the actual state may diverge. Usually, this doesn't cause too much trouble, but a good practice is to follow each failed or aborted deployment operation with a deploy --check run to detect and fix any state mismatch(es).

  • Resource creation and deletion operations take time to settle during which the resource is in a transient state. You are most likely to encounter this if you abort resource creation and run deploy --check, which will silently wait for the resource to settle.

    In certain circumstances you may encounter "resource failed to settle" error, which means that waiting for the resource to settle timed out. This shouldn't happen often as all operations have sensible timeouts. You are most likely to hit this if an aborted creation of a resource is followed by deploy --check which has a small timeout or if Azure gets unusually slow due to maintenance events.

  • Sometimes deploying or updating a resource doesn't result in an error and instead the resource enters a "Failed" state. deploy --check complains when it encounters failed resources. Depending on the cause, redeploying the resource or deploying it with known good or fixed parameters resolves this problem.

  • You may get "Failed getting access" authentication error when deleting a resource even if you have specified correct credentials. This happens because NixOps copies the credentials to the internal state database only on nixops deploy and the state database currently stores outdated credentials for example because you were asked to change your password by Azure. This can be resolved by a nixops deploy run.
  • Azure resource names are case-insensitive and must only be unique within their container(resource group, share etc), while NixOps resource names are case-sensitive and global. NixOps has a check for resource uniqueness which usually catches the naming clashes.

  • If you are getting socket.gaierror: [Errno -2] Name or service not known when dealing with storage services(BLOBs, containers etc), you need to flush DNS cache or wait a little bit. Azure storage API calls are issued using the subdomain name which exists only if storage exists. Thus, running deploy --check for a container before its storage is created causes a DNS resolution failure to be cached for some time even after you create the storage.

  • If a storage is deleted, containers and BLOBs can no longer authenticate and can't differentiate between a network failure and missing storage, so such a situation is not handled automatically by NixOps to avoid causing damage. Getting out of this ambiguous state requires either (re-)deployment of the storage or manual deletion of the affected NixOps resources.

  • Queues, Tables, BLOB Containers and Shares disappear instantly on deletion, but it takes some time for deletes to settle. You will get an error if you try re-creating such a resource too soon after deletion. Usually, storage resources settle within several seconds.

  • deploy --check has no way to retrieve container ACL, so be careful with manual changes.

3.5. Deploying to Hetzner physical machines

In order to deploy to Hetzner machines, you need to have a valid account to their server management interface, called the Robot. This account is only used for the initial deployment and the destruction of a machine. In particular the initial deployment creates a separate Robot account just for the machine that's going to be created, so a person who has access to your deployment will only have access to the machines within the deployment and not all machines that are associated with your main Robot account. When destroying a machine, the separate admin account is removed as well.

Of course you need machines where you can deploy to, which can only be ordered by the Robot's web interface. In the expression of the NixOps network, you reference these machines by setting deployment.hetzner.mainIPv4 to the corresponding main IP address, to be found in the list of the Server tab in the Robot.

Partitioning of a machine is currently done by using Anaconda's Kickstart format. By default, it consists of two disks with two swap partitions, one on each disk and one big ext4 array with RAID1, similiar to the default layout Hetzner is using for installing their Debian machines. If you want to change the default, you can use deployment.hetzner.partitions to change the default layout. For example to install a machine with btrfs:

{
  example = {
    deployment.targetEnv = "hetzner";
    deployment.hetzner.mainIPv4 = "1.2.3.4";
    deployment.hetzner.partitions = ''
      clearpart --all --initlabel --drives=sda,sdb

      part swap1 --recommended --label=swap1 --fstype=swap --ondisk=sda
      part swap2 --recommended --label=swap2 --fstype=swap --ondisk=sdb

      part btrfs.1 --grow --ondisk=sda
      part btrfs.2 --grow --ondisk=sdb

      btrfs / --data=1 --metadata=1 --label=root btrfs.1 btrfs.2
    '';
  };
}

This will install NixOS on a machine with the main IP 1.2.3.4, using a swap partition for each drive and use everything else for a single btrfs volume.

In the previous example, there is no occurrence of deployment.hetzner.robotUser and deployment.hetzner.robotPass, you can set the credentials to your main Robot account there, however it is recommended to use the environment variables HETZNER_ROBOT_USER and HETZNER_ROBOT_PASS, as you only need them for initial deployment and destruction.

3.6. Deploying to Libvirtd (Qemu)

In order to use libvirtd backend, a couple of manual steps need to be taken. Libvirtd backend is currently supported only on NixOS.

Configure your host NixOS machine to enable libvirtd daemon, add your user to libvirtd group and change firewall not to filter DHCP packets.

  virtualisation.libvirtd.enable = true;
  users.extraUsers.myuser.extraGroups = [ "libvirtd" ];
  networking.firewall.checkReversePath = false;

Next we have to make sure our user has access to create images by executing:

  $ sudo mkdir /var/lib/libvirtd/images
  $ sudo chown myuser:libvirtd /var/lib/libvirtd/images

We're ready to create the deployment, start by creating example.nix:

{
  example = { config, pkgs, lib, }: {
  };
}

and libvirtd specification example-libvirtd.nix:

{
  example = {
    deployment.targetEnv = "libvirtd";
    deployment.headless = true;
  };
}

Finally, let's deploy it with NixOps:

  $ nixops create -d example-libvirtd ./example.nix ./example-libvirtd.nix
  $ nixops deploy -d example-libvirtd

Warning

Note that headless mode has to be turned ON for the moment in order to avoid X permissions error currently known to be broken upstream

3.7. Accessing machines

We have seen above that you can login to individual machines by doing nixops ssh name, where name is the name of the machine.

It’s also possible to perform a command on all machines:

$ nixops ssh-for-each -d load-balancer-ec2 -- df /tmp
backend1...> /dev/xvdb      153899044 192084 145889336   1% /tmp
proxy......> /dev/xvdb      153899044 192084 145889336   1% /tmp
backend2...> /dev/xvdb      153899044 192084 145889336   1% /tmp

By default, the command is executed sequentially on each machine. You can add the flag -p to execute it in parallel.

3.8. Checking machine status

The command nixops check checks the status of each machine in a deployment. It verifies that the machine still exists (i.e. hasn’t been destroyed outside of NixOps), is up (i.e. the instance has been started) and is reachable via SSH. It also checks that any attached disks (such as EBS volumes) are not in a failed state, and prints the names of any systemd units that are in a failed state.

For example, for the 3-machine EC2 network shown above, it might show:

$ nixops check -d load-balancer-ec2
+----------+--------+-----+-----------+----------+----------------+---------------+-------+
| Name     | Exists | Up  | Reachable | Disks OK | Load avg.      | Failed units  | Notes |
+----------+--------+-----+-----------+----------+----------------+---------------+-------+
| backend1 | Yes    | Yes | Yes       | Yes      | 0.03 0.03 0.05 | httpd.service |       |
| backend2 | Yes    | No  | N/A       | N/A      |                |               |       |
| proxy    | Yes    | Yes | Yes       | Yes      | 0.00 0.01 0.05 |               |       |
+----------+--------+-----+-----------+----------+----------------+---------------+-------+

This indicates that Apache httpd has failed on backend1 and that machine backend is not running at all. In this situation, you should run nixops deploy --check to repair the deployment.

3.9. Network arguments

In NixOps you can pass in arguments from outside the nix expression. The network file can be a nix function, which takes a set of arguments which are passed in externally and can be used to change configuration values, or even to generate a variable number of machines in the network.

Here is an example of a network with network arguments:

{ maintenance ? false
}:
{
  machine =
    { config, pkgs, ... }:
    { services.httpd.enable = maintenance;
      ...
    };
}

This network has a maintenance argument that defaults to false. This value can be used inside the network expression to set NixOS option, in this case whether or not Apache HTTPD should be enabled on the system.

You can pass network arguments using the set-args nixops command. For example, if we want to set the maintenance argument to true in the previous example, you can run:

  $ nixops set-args --arg maintenance true -d <name>

The arguments that have been set will show up:

$ nixops info -d argtest
Network name: argtest
Network UUID: 634d6273-f9f6-11e2-a004-15393537e5ff
Network description: Unnamed NixOps network
Nix expressions: .../network-arguments.nix
Nix arguments: maintenance = true

+---------+---------------+------+-------------+------------+
| Name    |     Status    | Type | Resource Id | IP address |
+---------+---------------+------+-------------+------------+
| machine | Missing / New | none |             |            |
+---------+---------------+------+-------------+------------+

Running nixops deploy after changing the arguments will deploy the new configuration.

Table of Contents

nixops — deploy a set of NixOS machines

Name

nixops — deploy a set of NixOS machines

Synopsis

nixops { --version | --help | command [arguments...] } [ { --state | -s } statefile ] [ { --deployment | -d } uuid-or-name ] [--confirm] [--debug]

Description

NixOps is a tool for deploying NixOS machines in a network or cloud.

Common options

--state, -s

Path to the state file that contains the deployments. It defaults to the value of the NIXOPS_STATE environment variable, or ~/.nixops/deployments.nixops if that one is not defined. It must have extension .nixops. The state file is actually a SQLite database that can be inspected using the sqlite3 command (for example, sqlite3 deployments.nixops .dump). If it does not exist, it is created automatically.

--deployment, -d

UUID or symbolic name of the deployment on which to operate. Defaults to the value of the NIXOPS_DEPLOYMENT environment variable.

--confirm

Automatically confirm “dangerous” actions, such as terminating EC2 instances or deleting EBS volumes. Without this option, you will be asked to confirm each dangerous action interactively.

--debug

Turn on debugging output. In particular, this causes NixOps to print a Python stack trace if an unhandled exception occurs.

--help

Print a brief summary of NixOps’s command line syntax.

--version

Print NixOps’s version number.

Common options passed along to Nix

-I

Append a directory to the Nix search path.

--max-jobs

Set maximum number of concurrent Nix builds.

--cores

Sets the value of the NIX_BUILD_CORES environment variable in the invocation of builders

--keep-going

Keep going after failed builds.

--keep-failed

Keep temporary directories of failed builds.

--show-trace

Print a Nix stack trace if evaluation fails.

--fallback

Fall back on installation from source.

--option

Set a Nix option.

--read-only-mode

Run Nix evaluations in read-only mode.

Environment variables

NIXOPS_STATE

The location of the state file if --state is not used. It defaults to ~/.nixops/deployments.nixops.

NIXOPS_DEPLOYMENT

UUID or symbolic name of the deployment on which to operate. Can be overridden using the -d option.

EC2_ACCESS_KEY, AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID

AWS Access Key ID used to communicate with the Amazon EC2 cloud. Used if deployment.ec2.accessKeyId is not set in an EC2 machine’s configuration.

EC2_SECRET_KEY, AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY

AWS Secret Access Key used to communicate with the Amazon EC2 cloud. It is only used if no secret key corresponding to the AWS Access Key ID is defined in ~/.ec2-keys.

HETZNER_ROBOT_USER, HETZNER_ROBOT_PASS

Username and password used to access the Robot for Hetzner deployments.

GCE_PROJECT

GCE Project which should own the resources in the Google Compute Engine deployment. Used if deployment.gce.project is not set in a GCE machine configuration and if resources.$TYPE.$NAME.project is not set in a GCE resource specification.

GCE_SERVICE_ACCOUNT, ACCESS_KEY_PATH

GCE Service Account ID and the path to the corresponding private key in .pem format which should be used to manage the Google Compute Engine deployment. Used if deployment.gce.serviceAccount and deployment.gce.accessKey are not set in a GCE machine configuration and if resources.$TYPE.$NAME.serviceAccount and resources.$TYPE.$NAME.accessKey are not set in a GCE resource specification.

AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID, AZURE_AUTHORITY_URL, AZURE_USER, AZURE_SERVICE_PRINCIPAL, AZURE_PASSWORD

Azure subscription ID, authority URL, user, service principal and password. Used if not set in an Azure machine deployment configuration via deployment.azure.subscriptionId, deployment.azure.authority, deployment.azure.user, deployment.azure.servicePrincipal and deployment.azure.password, and if not set in an Azure resource specification via resources.$TYPE.$NAME.subscriptionId, resources.$TYPE.$NAME.authority, resources.$TYPE.$NAME.user, resources.$TYPE.$NAME.servicePrincipal and resources.$TYPE.$NAME.password.

Files

~/.ec2-keys

This file maps AWS Access Key IDs to their corresponding Secret Access Keys. Each line must consist of an Access Key IDs, a Secret Access Keys and an optional symbolic identifier, separated by whitespace. Comments starting with # are stripped. An example:

AKIAIUTDLWJKSLSJDLDQ Grsjf37cDKKWndklek3jdxnSKE3fkskDLqdldDl/ dev # AWS development account
AKIAEODJSLXMDLLJKDLW DLeodsk32kldlDLSKdflexfpgiklf130r4dl23qp prod # AWS production account

The identifier can be used instead of actual Access Key IDs in deployment.ec2.accessKeyId, e.g.

deployment.ec2.accessKeyId = "prod";

This is useful if you have an AWS account with multiple user accounts and you don’t want to hard-code an Access Key ID in a NixOps specification.

Command nixops create

Synopsis

nixops create nixexprs... [ -I path ...]

Description

This command creates a new deployment state record in NixOps’s database. The paths of the Nix expressions that specify the desired deployment (nixexprs) are stored in the state file. The UUID of the new deployment is printed on standard output.

Options

-I path

Add path to the Nix expression search path for all future evaluations of the deployment specification. NixOps stores path in the state file. This option may be given multiple times. See the description of the -I option in nix-instantiate(1) for details.

--deployment, -d

Set the symbolic name of the new deployment to the given string. The name can be used to refer to the deployment by passing the option -d name or the environment variable NIXOPS_DEPLOYMENT=name to subsequent NixOps invocations. This is typically more convenient than using the deployment’s UUID. However, names are not required to be unique; if you create multiple deployments with the same name, NixOps will complain.

Examples

To create a deployment with symbolic name foo, and then perform the actual deployment:

$ nixops create expr1.nix expr2.nix -d foo
created deployment ‘32b06868-d27c-11e2-a055-81d7beb7925e’

$ nixops deploy -d foo

Command nixops modify

Synopsis

nixops modify nixexprs... [ { --name | -n } name ] [ -I path ...]

Description

This command modifies an existing deployment. The options are the same as for nixops create. The symbolic name of the deployment can be changed using the --name flag.

Examples

To change the Nix expressions specifying the deployment, and rename it from foo to bar:

$ nixops modify -d foo -n bar expr3.nix expr4.nix

Note that -d identifies the existing deployment, while -n specifies its new name.

Command nixops clone

Synopsis

nixops clone [ { --name | -n } name ]

Description

This command clones an existing deployment; that is, it creates a new deployment that has the same deployment specification and parameters, but a different UUID and (optionally) name. Note that nixops clone does not currently clone the state of the machines in the existing deployment. Thus, when you first run nixops deploy on the cloned deployment, NixOps will create new instances from scratch.

Examples

To create a new deployment bar by cloning the deployment foo:

$ nixops clone -d foo -n bar

Command nixops delete

Synopsis

nixops delete [--all] [--force]

Description

This command deletes a deployment from the state file. NixOps will normally refuse to delete the deployment if any resources belonging to the deployment (such as virtual machines) still exist. You must run nixops destroy first to get rid of any such resources. However, if you pass --force, NixOps will forget about any still-existing resources; this should be used with caution.

If the --all flag is given, all deployments in the state file are deleted.

Examples

To delete the deployment named foo:

$ nixops delete -d foo

Command nixops deploy

Synopsis

nixops deploy [ --kill-obsolete | -k ] [--dry-run] [--repair] [--create-only] [--build-only] [--copy-only] [--check] [--allow-reboot] [--force-reboot] [--allow-recreate] [ --include machine-name... ] [ --exclude machine-name... ] [ -I path ...] [ --max-concurrent-copy N ]

Description

This command deploys a set of machines on the basis of the specification described by the Nix expressions given in the preceding nixops create call. It creates missing virtual machines, builds each machine configuration, copies the closure of each configuration to the corresponding machine, and activates them.

Options

--kill-obsolete, -k

Destroy (terminate) virtual machines that were previously created as part of this deployment, but are obsolete because they are no longer mentioned in the deployment specification. This happens if you remove a machine from the specification after having run nixops deploy to create it. Without this flag, such obsolete machines are left untouched.

--dry-run

Dry run; show what would be done by this command without actually doing it.

--repair

Use --repair when calling nix-build. This is useful for repairing the nix store when some inconsistency is found and nix-copy-closure is failing as a result. Note that this option only works in nix setups that run without the nix daemon.

--create-only

Exit after creating any missing machines. Nothing is built and no existing machines are touched.

--build-only

Just build the configuration locally; don’t create or deploy any machines. Note that this may fail if the configuration refers to information only known after machines have been created (such as IP addresses).

--copy-only

Exit after creating missing machines, building the configuration and copying closures to the target machines; i.e., do everything except activate the new configuration.

--check

Normally, NixOps assumes that the deployment state of machines doesn’t change behind its back. For instance, it assumes that a VirtualBox VM, once started, will continue to run unless you run nixops destroy to terminate it. If this is not the case, e.g., because you shut down or destroyed a machine through other means, you should pass the --check option to tell NixOps to verify its current knowledge.

--allow-reboot

Allow NixOps to reboot the instance if necessary. For instance, if you change the type of an EC2 instance, NixOps must stop, modify and restart the instance to effectuate this change.

--force-reboot

Reboot the machine to activate the new configuration (using nixos-rebuild boot).

--allow-recreate

Recreate resources that have disappeared (e.g. destroyed through mechanisms outside of NixOps). Without this flag, NixOps will print an error if a resource that should exist no longer does.

--include machine-name...

Only operate on the machines explicitly mentioned here, excluding other machines.

--exclude machine-name...

Only operate on the machines that are not mentioned here.

-I path

Add path to the Nix expression search path. This option may be given multiple times and takes precedence over the -I flags used in the preceding nixops create invocation. See the description of the -I option in nix-instantiate(1) for details.

--max-concurrent-copy N

Use at most N concurrent nix-copy-closure processes to deploy closures to the target machines. N defaults to 5.

Examples

To deploy all machines:

$ nixops deploy

To deploy only the logical machines foo and bar, checking whether their recorded deployment state is correct:

$ nixops deploy --check --include foo bar

To create any missing machines (except foo) without doing anything else:

$ nixops deploy --create-only --exclude foo

Command nixops destroy

Synopsis

nixops destroy [--all] [ --include machine-name... ] [ --exclude machine-name... ]

Description

This command destroys (terminates) all virtual machines previously created as part of this deployment, and similarly deletes all disk volumes if they’re marked as “delete on termination”. Unless you pass the --confirm option, you will be asked to approve every machine destruction.

This command has no effect on machines that cannot be destroyed automatically; for instance, machines in the none target environment (such as physical machines, or virtual machines not created by NixOps).

Options

--all

Destroy all deployments.

--include machine-name...

Only destroy the machines listed here.

--exclude machine-name...

Destroy all machines except the ones listed here.

Examples

To destroy all machines:

$ nixops destroy

To destroy the machine named foo:

$ nixops destroy foo

Command nixops stop

Synopsis

nixops stop [ --include machine-name... ] [ --exclude machine-name... ]

Description

This command stops (shuts down) all non-obsolete machines that can be automatically started. This includes EC2 and VirtualBox machines, but not machines using the none backend (because NixOps doesn’t know how to start them automatically).

Options

--include machine-name...

Only stop the machines listed here.

--exclude machine-name...

Stop all machines except the ones listed here.

Examples

To stop all machines that support being stopped:

$ nixops stop

Command nixops start

Synopsis

nixops start [ --include machine-name... ] [ --exclude machine-name... ]

Description

This command starts all non-obsolete machines previously stopped using nixops stop.

Options

--include machine-name...

Only start the machines listed here.

--exclude machine-name...

Start all machines except the ones listed here.

Examples

To start all machines that were previously stopped:

$ nixops start

Command nixops list

Synopsis

nixops list

Description

This command prints information about all deployments in the database: the UUID, the name, the description, the number of running or stopped machines, and the types of those machines.

Examples

$ nixops list

Command nixops info

Synopsis

nixops info [--all] [--plain] [--no-eval]

Description

This command prints some information about the current state of the deployment. For each machine, it prints:

  • The logical name of the machine.

  • Its state, which is one of New (not deployed yet), Up (created and up to date), Outdated (created but not up to date with the current configuration, e.g. due to use of the --exclude option to nixops deploy) and Obsolete (created but no longer present in the configuration).

  • The type of the machine (i.e. the value of deployment.targetEnv, such as ec2). For EC2 machines, it also shows the machine’s region or availability zone.

  • The virtual machine identifier, if applicable. For EC2 machines, this is the instance ID. For VirtualBox VMs, it’s the virtual machine name.

  • The IP address of the machine. This is its public IP address, if it has one, or its private IP address otherwise. (For instance, VirtualBox machines only have a private IP address.)

Options

--all

Print information about all resources in all known deployments, rather than in a specific deployment.

--plain

Print the information in a more easily parsed format where columns are separated by tab characters and there are no column headers.

--no-eval

Do not evaluate the deployment specification. Note that as a consequence the “Status” field in the output will show all machines as “Obsolete” (since the effective deployment specification is empty).

Examples

$ nixops info -d foo
Network name: test
Network UUID: 80dc8e11-287d-11e2-b05a-a810fd2f513f
Network description: Test network
Nix expressions: /home/alice/test-network.nix

Command nixops check

Synopsis

nixops check [--all]

Description

This command checks and prints the status of each machine in the deployment. For instance, for an EC2 machine, it will ask EC2 whether the machine is running or stopped. If a machine is supposed to be up, NixOps will try to connect to the machine via SSH and get the current load average statistics.

Options

--all

Check all machines in all known deployments, rather than in a specific deployment.

Examples

For a running VirtualBox instance, NixOps will print something like:

$ nixops status
machine> VM state is ‘running’
machine> pinging SSH... up [1.03 0.34 0.12]

For a stopped EC2 instance, NixOps might show:

machine> instance state is ‘stopped’

Command nixops ssh

Synopsis

nixops ssh [username@]machine [ command [args...] ]

Description

This command opens an SSH connection to the specified machine and executes the specified command. If no command is specified, an interactive shell is started.

Options

--include-keys

Include the public SSH host keys into .ssh/known_hosts for all machines in the imported network.

Examples

To start a shell on machine foo:

$ nixops ssh foo

To run Emacs on machine bar:

$ nixops ssh bar -- -X emacs

Passes -X (“enable X11 forwarding”) to SSH.

Command nixops ssh-for-each

Synopsis

nixops ssh-for-each [ --parallel | -p ] [ --include machine-name... ] [ --exclude machine-name... ] [ command [args...] ]

Description

This operation executes the specified shell command on all non-obsolete machines.

Options

--parallel

Execute the command on each machine in parallel. The default is to do each machine sequentially.

--include machine-name...

Command nixops mount

Synopsis

nixops mount [ { --option | -o } option ...] [username@]machine [:[remote]] local

Description

This command mounts the directory remote in the file system of the specified machine onto the directory local in the local file system. If :remote is omitted, the entire remote file system is mounted. If you specify an empty path (i.e. :), then the home directory of the specified user is mounted. If no user is specified, root is assumed.

This command is implemented using sshfs, so you must have sshfs installed and the fuse kernel module loaded.

Options

--option / -o opt

Pass additional options to sshfs. See sshfs(1) for details.

Examples

To mount the entire file system of machine foo onto the local directory ~/mnt:

$ nixops mount foo ~/mnt

$ ls -l ~/mnt
total 72
drwxr-xr-x 1 root  root   4096 Jan 15 11:44 bin
drwx------ 1 root  root   4096 Jan 14 17:15 boot
…

To mount the home directory of user alice:

$ nixops mount alice@foo: ~/mnt

To mount a specific directory, passing the option transform_symlinks to ensure that absolute symlinks in the remote file system work properly:

$ nixops mount foo:/data ~/mnt -o transform_symlinks

Command nixops reboot

Synopsis

nixops reboot [ --include machine-name... ] [ --exclude machine-name... ] [ --no-wait ] [ command [args...] ]

Description

Command nixops show-option

Synopsis

nixops show-option [--xml] machine option

Description

This command prints the value of the specified NixOS configuration option for the specified machine.

Examples

$ nixops show-option machine services.xserver.enable
false

$ nixops show-option --xml machine boot.initrd.availableKernelModules
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<expr>
  <list>
    <string value="md_mod" />
    <string value="raid0" />
    
  </list>
</expr>

Command nixops set-args

Synopsis

nixops set-args [ --arg name value ...] [ --argstr name value ...] [ --unset name ...]

Description

This command persistently sets arguments to be passed to the deployment specification.

Options

--arg name value

Set the function argument name to value, where the latter is an arbitrary Nix expression.

--argstr name value

Like --arg, but the value is a literal string rather than a Nix expression. Thus, --argstr name value is equivalent to --arg name \"value\".

--unset name

Remove a previously set function argument.

Examples

Consider the following deployment specification (servers.nix):

{ nrMachines, active }:

with import <nixpkgs/pkgs/lib>;

let

  makeMachine = n: nameValuePair "webserver-${toString n}"
    ({ config, pkgs, ... }:
    { deployment.targetEnv = "virtualbox";
      services.httpd.enable = active;
      services.httpd.adminAddr = "foo@example.org";
    });

in listToAttrs (map makeMachine (range 1 nrMachines))

This specifies a network of nrMachines identical VirtualBox VMs that run the Apache web server if active is set. To create 10 machines without Apache:

$ nixops create servers.nix
$ nixops set-args --arg nrMachines 10 --arg active false
$ nixops deploy

Next we can enable Apache on the existing machines:

$ nixops set-args --arg active true
$ nixops deploy

or provision additional machines:

$ nixops set-args --arg nrMachines 20
$ nixops deploy

Command nixops show-console-output

Examples

To export a specific deployment, and import it into the state file other.nixops:

$ nixops export -d foo > foo.json
$ nixops import -s other.nixops < foo.json
added deployment ‘2bbaddca-01cb-11e2-88b2-19d91ca51c50’

$ nixops delete -d foo --force

To export all deployments:

$ nixops export --all > all.json

Command nixops import

Synopsis

nixops import [--include-keys]

Description

This command creates deployments from the state data exported by nixops export. The state is read from standard input. See nixops export for examples.

Appendix B. Configuration Options

Appendix C. Hacking

This section provides some notes on how to hack on NixOps. To get the latest version of NixOps from GitHub:

$ git clone git://github.com/NixOS/nixops.git
$ cd nixops

To build it and its dependencies:

$ nix-build release.nix -A build.x86_64-linux

The resulting NixOps can be run as ./result/bin/nixops.

To build all dependencies and start a shell in which all environment variables (such as PYTHONPATH) are set up so that those dependencies can be found:

$ nix-shell release.nix -A build.x86_64-linux --exclude tarball
$ echo $PYTHONPATH
/nix/store/yzj6p5f7iyh247pwxrg97y3klm6d0cni-python-2.7.3/lib/python2.7/site-packages:...

You can then run NixOps in your source tree as follows:

$ nixops

To run the tests, do

$ python tests.py

Note that some of the tests involve the creation of EC2 resources and thus cost money. You must set the environment variable EC2_ACCESS_KEY and (optionally) EC2_SECRET_KEY. (If the latter is not set, it will be looked up in ~/.ec2-keys, as described in Section 3.2.) To run a specific test, run python tests.py test-name, e.g.

$ python tests.py tests.functional.test_encrypted_links

There are also a few NixOS VM tests. These can be run as follows:

$ nix-build release.nix -A tests.none_backend

    D.4. Release 1.2 (April 30, 2014)

    • General

      • NixOps now requires NixOS 13.10 and up.

      • Add --all option to nixops destroy, nixops delete and nixops ssh-for-each.

      • The -d option now matches based on prefix for convenience when the specified uuid/id is not found.

      • Resources can now be accessed via direct reference, i.e. you can use securityGroups = [ resources.ec2SecurityGroups.foo ]; in stead of securityGroups = [ resources.ec2SecurityGroups.foo.name ];.

      • Changed default value of deployment.storeKeysOnMachine to false, which is the more secure option. This can prevent unattended reboot from finishing, as keys will need to be pushed to the machine.

    • Amazon EC2

      • Support provisioning of elastic IP addresses.

      • Support provisioning of EC2 security groups.

      • Support all HVM instance types.

      • Support ap-southeast-1 region.

      • Better handling of errors in pushing Route53 records.

      • Support using ARN's for applying instance profiles to EC2 instances. This allows cross-account API access.

      • Base HVM image was updated to allow using all emphemeral devices.

      • Instance ID is now available in nix through the deployment.ec2.instanceId option, set by nixops.

      • Support independent provisioning of EBS volumes. Previously, EBS volumes could only be created as part of an EC2 instance, meaning their lifetime was tied to the instance and they could not be managed separately. Now they can be provisioned independently, e.g.:

              resources.ebsVolumes.bigdata =
                { name = "My Big Fat Data";
                  region = "eu-west-1";
                  zone = "eu-west-1a";
                  accessKeyId = "...";
                  size = 1000;
                };
              

      • To allow cross-account API access, the deployment.ec2.instanceProfile option can now be set to either a name (previous behaviour) or an Amazon Resource Names (ARN) of the instance profile you want to apply.

    • Hetzner

      • Always hard reset on destroying machine.

      • Support for Hetzner vServers.

      • Disabled root password by default.

      • Fix hard reset for rebooting to rescue mode.. This is particularly useful if you have a dead server and want to put it in rescue mode. Now it's possible to do that simply by running:

              nixops reboot --hard --rescue --include=deadmachine
              

    • VirtualBox

      • Require VirtualBox >= 4.3.0.

      • Support for shared folders in VirtualBox. You can mount host folder on the guest by setting the deployment.virtualbox.sharedFolders option.

      • Allow destroy if the VM is gone already

    This release has contributions from aszlig, Corey O'Connor, Domen Kožar, Eelco Dolstra, Michael Stone, Oliver Charles, Rickard Nilsson, Rob Vermaas, Shea Levy and Vladimir Kirillov.

    D.5. Release 1.1.1 (October 2, 2013)

    This a minor bugfix release.

    • Added a command-line option --include-keys to allow importing SSH public host keys, of the machines that will be imported, to the .ssh/known_hosts of the user.

    • Fixed a bug that prevented switching the deployment.storeKeysOnMachine option value.

    • On non-EC2 systems, NixOps will generate ECDSA SSH host key pairs instead of DSA from now on.

    • VirtualBox deployments use generated SSH host keypairs.

    • For all machines which nixops generates an SSH host keypair for, it will add the SSH public host key to the known_hosts configuration of all machines in the network.

    • For EC2 deployments, if the nixops expression specifies a set of security groups for a machine that is different from the security groups applied to the existing machine, it will produce a warning that the change cannot be made.

    • For EC2 deployments, disks that are not supposed to be attached to the machine are detached only after system activation has been completed. Previously this was done before, but that could lead to volumes not being able to detach without needing to stop the machine.

    • Added a command-line option --repair as a convient way to pass this option, which allows repairing of broken or changed paths in the nix store, to nix-build calls that nixops performs. Note that this option only works in nix setups that run without the nix daemon.

    This release has contributions from aszlig, Ricardo Correia, Eelco Dolstra, Rob Vermaas.

    D.6. Release 1.1 (September 9, 2013)

    • Backend for Hetzner, a German data center provider. More information and a demo video can be found here.

    • When using the deployment.keys.* options, the keys in /run/keys are now created with mode 600.

    • Fixed bug where EBS snapshots name tag was overridden by the instance name tag.

    • The nixops executable now has the default OpenSSH from nixpkgs in its PATH now by default, to work around issues with left-over SSH master connections on older version of OpenSSH, such as the version that is installed by default on CentOS.

    • A new resource type has been introduced to generate sets of SSH public/private keys.

    • Support for spot instances in the EC2 backend. By specifying the deployment.ec2.spotInstancePrice option for a machine, you can set the spot instance price in cents. NixOps will wait 10 minutes for a spot instance to be fulfilled, if not, then it will error out for that machine.

    D.7. Release 1.0.1 (July 11, 2013)

    This is a minor bugfix release.

    • Reduce parallelism for running EC2 backups, to prevent hammering the AWS API in case of many disks.

    • Propagate the instance tags to the EBS volumes (except for Name tag, which is overriden with a detailed description of the volume and its use).

    D.8. Release 1.0 (June 18, 2013)

    Initial release.
