2015-07-07 07:58:12 -0500 answered a question How can I add SAN space to existing cinder

Cinder can work directly with some SAN vendors, but it must first be configured to do so. For reference, see the list of volume drivers currently supported at the following link: http://docs.openstack.org/kilo/config... If you're using the LVM driver, then you can configure Cinder for multiple-storage backends as described in the following link: http://docs.openstack.org/admin-guide...

Good luck!

Found another post similar to mine and it seems like this is not supported in icehouse :(

2014-10-24 22:01:26 -0500 asked a question How are parameter labels and parameter_groups used by heat?

Hi, I am trying to put a label: with my parameters, but when I launch the stack they are never displayed. Also, I have tried to use the parameter_groups: section in my stack, but they don't seem to change the way or order in which parameters are displayed after I launch my stack. My expectations are that when I assign a label to a parameter, that label should be displayed when the stack prompts the user for input. I am also expecting that the purpose of the parameter_groups: section is for changing the order in which the parameters are displayed when prompted for input during stack launch. Are these expectations incorrect? When I launch a stack that prompts for input, how else can I influence the ordering of the parameters so that they are grouped together in a logical order?

Thanks!

2014-08-05 17:27:51 -0500 marked best answer What else is required by the compute nodes in order to get a LUN created by EMC SMI-S driver to be mapped to an instance on a compute node?

I've got an environment setup with Cinder to use the EMC SMI-S drives for FC attahced volumes. The openstack configuration guide only mentions that for VNX FC configuration, you only need to regiser the HBAs of the compute nodes with the VNX array. I've done that, but the volumes that are created failing to attach to instances on the compute node. I see that in the volume.log, messages regarding problems with the wwpns, so it appears that some linkage on the compute nodes is missing.

2014-08-05 13:16:04 -0500 answered a question What else is required by the compute nodes in order to get a LUN created by EMC SMI-S driver to be mapped to an instance on a compute node?

Update: This issue was resolved by following the updated Juno Cinder FC configuration guide where it states that the following packages are required for the compute node for FC:

KVM host requirements

You must install these packages on the KVM host:

  • sysfsutils - Nova uses the systool application in this package.
  • sg3-utils - Nova uses the sg_scan and sginfo applications.

Installing the multipath-tools package is optional.
