Is somebody familar with this error? i've tried to search for a fix but sadly failed to find one out there.

My system: ubuntu 14.04.02 ceph hammer - (cephx) Openstack Kilo

REFERENCE to the guide I used: ( (

my environment is in a closed network, its kinda hard to get stuff out. but when I try cinder-volume its just shows the log, what's in the log is just the sentence I wrote in the header.

RBDDriver -1.1.0 is uninitialized.

I've deployed my whole ceph env with ansible playbooks according to leseb's github as a standalone ceph I've manage to acomplish a fully functional ceph environment, tried it with different benchmarking tools such as COSbench, iometer, getput, DD, radosBench and few more and never encountered any errors or disfunctions cephwise.

looks like the ceph remote block device driver is not initialized.

what is the output of

ceph health

what is the output of


most likely it's a simple config issue.

..looking at the out put you Ceph cluster is not ready, specifically you have error message

.rgw.buckets has too few pgs;

this points to having too few placement groups in your cluster. things to look at

ceph osd dump | grep ^pool


ceph health detail

the fix might be to add more pg's

it was network issue to ceph cluster

i wrote python script that test the connection to monitor servers

python: import rados

c=rados.Rados(conffile='/etc/ceph/ceph.conf') c.connect(); print c.version() print c.get_fsid()

link to detailed guide about rados library (

I have never been able to solve this issue , But I could confirm that I am able to connect to the backend cluster but I am always getting RBD Driver (config XXX) is uninitialized. If anyone has any leads to troubleshoot this I would appreicate , I have already checked permissions in ceph.conf etc.
