OpenStack Juno : Use Virtual Storages(NFS)
2015/01/11
 
It's possible to use the Virtual Storage provided by Cinder if an Instance needs more disks.
Configure Virtual storage with NFS backend on here.

[1]
NFS server is required to be running on your LAN.
On this example, configure "/storage" directory on "nfs.srv.world" as a shared directory.
[2] Configure Storage Node.
[root@storage ~]#
yum -y install nfs-utils
[root@storage ~]#
vi /etc/idmapd.conf
# line 5: uncomment and change to the own domain name

Domain =
srv.world
[root@storage ~]#
for service in rpcbind nfs-lock nfs-idmap nfs-mountd; do
systemctl restart $service
systemctl enable $service
done
[root@storage ~]#
vi /etc/cinder/cinder.conf
# add follows in the [DEFAULT] section

volume_driver=cinder.volume.drivers.nfs.NfsDriver
nfs_shares_config=/etc/cinder/nfs_shares
nfs_mount_point_base=/var/lib/cinder/mnt
[root@storage ~]#
vi /etc/cinder/nfs_shares
# create new: specify NFS shared directories

nfs.srv.world:/storage
[root@storage ~]#
chmod 640 /etc/cinder/nfs_shares

[root@storage ~]#
chgrp cinder /etc/cinder/nfs_shares

[root@storage ~]#
mkdir /var/lib/cinder/mnt

[root@storage ~]#
chown cinder. /var/lib/cinder/mnt

[root@storage ~]#
systemctl restart openstack-cinder-volume

[3] Change Nova settings to mount with NFS.
[root@node01 ~]#
yum -y install nfs-utils
[root@node01 ~]#
vi /etc/idmapd.conf
# line 5: uncomment and change to the own domain name

Domain =
srv.world
[root@node01 ~]#
for service in rpcbind nfs-lock nfs-idmap nfs-mountd; do
systemctl restart $service
systemctl enable $service
done
[root@node01 ~]#
vi /etc/nova/nova.conf
# add follows in the [DEFAULT] section

volume_drivers="nfs=nova.virt.libvirt.volume.LibvirtNFSVolumeDriver"
[root@node01 ~]#
systemctl restart openstack-nova-compute

[4] For example, create a virtual disk "disk01" with 10GB. It's OK to work on any node. (This example is on Control Node)
[root@dlp ~(keystone)]#
cinder create --display_name disk01 10

[5] Attach the virtual disk to an Instance.
For the exmaple below, the disk is connected as "/dev/vdb". It's possible to use it as a storage to create a file system on it.
