Definitions in nfs_shares_config file

Hi,

I would like to build out a cloud environment by using OpenStack Icehouse and FAS series. I will use NetAppDirectCmodeNfsDriver.

But I don't have FAS series yet. But I have to start the cloud environment designing.

I have questions about definitions in nfs_shares_config file.

I know a format in the file is "IP:/SHARE".

Q1) What is "IP"?

  Is "IP" an IP address of a management LIF of SVMs, or an IP address of a data LIF of SVMs, or what? 

Q2) What is "/SHARE"?

  Is "/SHARE" a junction path of volumes, or what?

Thanks,

  Kanno

Q1) What is "IP"?

Cluster Management IP address (10.238.229.42)

Q2) What is "/SHARE"?

Volume  for shareIP

Hi Pravinp,

Thanks for your reply.

In your environment, do you define it in the file as follows?

# cat /etc/cinder/nfs_shares_config

10.238.229.42:/10.238.229.43:open_test

Thanks,

Re: Definitions in nfs_shares_config file

As below

cat /etc/cinder/cinder.conf

netapp_server_hostname=10.238.229.42

nfs_shares_config=/etc/cinder/netapp.conf

root@controller:~# cat /etc/cinder/netapp.conf

10.238.229.43:/open_test
