Folsom NetAppNFSDriver

Hi guys,

We have troubles running cinder-volume with NetAppNFSDriver in Folsom.

Whatever we do, we end up getting

Setting netapp_wsdl_url in nova.conf, nor cinder.conf seems to have any effect.

Running version 2012.2 from Ubuntu 12.04 repositories.

Any ideas?

Re: Folsom NetAppNFSDriver

Could you paste your nova.conf and/or cinder.conf files? I'm wondering if there is a formatting issue in the conf file. It's hard to imagine what else might cause this particular error.

Don't forget to redact any sensitive passwords before pasting the files.

Re: Folsom NetAppNFSDriver

Actually it was problem with driver definition in cinder.conf.

We used

volume_driver=nova.volume.netapp _nfs.NetAppNFSDriver instead of

volume_driver=cinder.volume.netapp_nfs.NetAppNFSDriver

The code is a mess there... For some reason you have that driver in two places ../nova/volume... and ../cinder/volume...

Both could be loaded, but ../volume/nova... will fail during checks, since it is missing FLAGS that are loaded only when running driver from ../cinder/volume/...

Is there any reason to have driver in two places? Looks like someone just forgot to clean up the code when moving from nova-volume to cinder-volume.

PS: Is there any documentation available for Netapp drivers? Configuration is pretty difficult by reading source code

Re: Folsom NetAppNFSDriver

The drivers (essentially, but not entirely duplicate) are in both places because nova-volume is still present in Folsom.  It won't be fully deprecated until Grizzly.  The OpenStack Project Policy Board (the predecessor to the Foundation's Technical Committee) made the decision that all Cinder drivers included in Folsom would have to have nova-volume equivalents. 

Regarding documentation, we'll make the Clustered ONTAP and NFS driver documentation available here on the NetApp Communities site.  We're still polishing up final drafts, but expect to have something ready shortly.
