Configuring Cinder with a NetApp Backend¶
This guide assumes that your undercloud is already installed and ready to deploy an overcloud.
Deploying the Overcloud¶
The Deploying with Heat Templates doc has a more detailed explanation of the following steps.
Copy the NetApp configuration file to your home directory:
sudo cp /usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/environments/cinder-netapp-config.yaml ~
Edit the permissions (user is typically
sudo chown $USER ~/cinder-netapp-config.yaml sudo chmod 755 ~/cinder-netapp-config.yaml
Edit the parameters in this file to fit your requirements. Ensure that the following line is changed:
Continue following the TripleO instructions for deploying an overcloud. Before entering the command to deploy the overcloud, add the environment file that you just configured as an argument:
openstack overcloud deploy --templates -e ~/cinder-netapp-config.yaml
Wait for the completion of the overcloud deployment process.
Creating a NetApp Volume¶
The following steps will refer to running commands as an admin user or a
tenant user. Sourcing the
overcloudrc file will authenticate you as
the admin user. You can then create a tenant user and use environment
files to switch between them.
Create a new volume type that maps to the new NetApp backend [admin]:
cinder type-create [name] cinder type-key [name] set volume_backend_name=tripleo_netapp
Create the volume [admin]:
cinder create --volume-type [type name] [size of volume]
Attach the volume to a server:
nova volume-attach <server> <volume> <device>
