Today I started on a tutorial for creating an Inception VM and a first Micro BOSH (using "bosh micro deploy").
I formalized the existence and preparation of an Inception VM, as I found the oss-docs documentation for deploying a micro bosh confusing. Perhaps its because there are so many concepts, combined with vSphere and AWS, going on in the documents.md one-page docs. Since I work on a Mac, I needed to make clear that there was an additional Ubuntu VM that was required (with a whole lot of stuff setup on it) to run the microbosh commands.
I started a bash script for converting a target Ubuntu VM into an Inception VM https://github.com/drnic/bosh-getting-started/blob/master/scripts/prepare_inception.sh. I think it does the minimal amount of work in order for "bosh micro" commands to work (pending CF-68 below and other hiccups).
When the tutorial is finished it will be the main tutorial for creating a BOSH, and the chef deployer tutorial will be moved into the Advanced/Other section. I've renamed all previous references to "microbosh" as "chefbosh" to avoid confusion.
I'm stuck during "bosh micro deploy <stemcell>" step:
Help would be appreciated!
