2017/09/06
 
It's possible to use Virtual Storages 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, refer to here.
On this example, configure [/var/lib/nfs-share] 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 ~]#
systemctl start rpcbind

[root@storage ~]#
systemctl enable rpcbind
[root@storage ~]#
vi /etc/cinder/cinder.conf
# add follows in the [DEFAULT] section

enabled_backends = nfs
# add follows to the end

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

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

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

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

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

[3] Change Nova settings on Compute Node to mount 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 ~]#
systemctl start rpcbind

[root@node01 ~]#
systemctl enable rpcbind
[root@node01 ~]#
vi /etc/nova/nova.conf
# add follows in the end

[cinder]
os_region_name = RegionOne
[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)
# set environment variable first

[root@dlp ~(keystone)]#
echo "export OS_VOLUME_API_VERSION=2" >> ~/keystonerc

[root@dlp ~(keystone)]#
source ~/keystonerc
[root@dlp ~(keystone)]#
openstack volume create --size 10 disk01

[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.
