[Openstack-operators] About the directory of keystone admin

Hi Stephen,

The keystone_admin file is just an arbitrary file used as a shortcut when
running OpenStack commands.

The contents of the file contains the admin username, tenant, password, and
auth url. Rather than specifying them on the command line each time you use
the "keystone" command, you just put the variables in your environment.

The file can be named anything you want, but this example uses
"~/keystone_admin". It's more commonly titled "openrc" in other documents.

After creating the file, you can run either:

. ~/keystone_admin
source ~/keystone_admin

to read the variables into your environment.

~ in this case, is most likely /root.

Hope that helps,
