Re: setting up a CF sandbox

We have had success with the Terraform CF install.

the oss aws docs show a larger deploy with many instances.

there is an in-flight project that sets up a single VM bosh-lite with cf on AWS here, although it may not be stable yet as dmitriy was stilling working on CI if i recall:

stark and wayne used to have a simple getting started experience for OSS cf using bosh-lite called try-cf, but it doesn't look to be available right now:

this project from stark and wayne shows an alternative terraform installation with fewer vms than the aws templates in cf-release:

Hey all,

I've started using Pivotal CF at work. And now I want to setup an Open Source cloud foundry instance on AWS, for my own personal use so I can learn more about CF. There's also a slight chance my job could go with open source cloud foundry at some point in the distant future.

So I spun up a new CentOS 7 host on the amazon free tier. I know that CF will spin up a bunch of new hosts. But one thing I'd like to know is, will a t2-micro be enough to use CF? I'd like to avoid paying for my sandbox if at all possible :)

Secondly, is I'm getting an error when I try to initialize the environment:

[cloud:~] bluethundr% bosh aws install

[WARNING] Loading the cli took 14.7 seconds, consider cleaning your gem environment

Failed to load plugin /home/bluethundr/.gem/ruby/gems/bosh_cli_plugin_micro-1.2977.0/lib/bosh/cli/commands/micro.rb: cannot load such file -- rake/file_utils_ext

I notice if I list the file I can see that it's there and has the right ownership:

bluethundr% ls -l /home/bluethundr/.gem/ruby/gems/bosh_cli_plugin_micro-1.2977.0/lib/bosh/cli/commands/micro.rb
-rw-rw-r--. 1 bluethundr bluethundr 11406 May 31 15:08 /home/bluethundr/.gem/ruby/gems/bosh_cli_plugin_micro-1.2977.0/lib/bosh/cli/commands/micro.rb

Can someone please tell me what the problem here is and how to get around it?

GPG me!!
