I am new to Openstack deployment with Netapp filer.
What I am trying to do is install Openstack in my environment having glance, cinder and swift setup on volumes of Netapp filer.
Out of above there, I was successfully able to setup glance and cinder by creating mount point on Netapp filer.
I have a template file where I have follwoing path set for glance and cinder:
glancesgare: a.b.c.d:/vol/myproj_test_volume/myproj_QTree netappnfs
cindersgare: a.b.c.d:/vol/myproj_test_volume/myproj_QTree netappnfs
What I expect:
I don't know how to setup awift with Netapp filer. I have created "luns" also on Netapp filer but don't know how to use them for swift setup , like should I pass the luns device id, dev name, mount point, ?? to swiftshare: line above.
Please help me out here.
Thanks in advance.

There is no special driver/configuration using NetApp FAS systems with Swift. You can just use the tradition way of mounting a LUN on a linux machine where you store your swift object store.
There is a nice E-series integration though that is the openstack deployments guide by NetApp.

You may find it useful to look at the recently released CVD Deployment Guide for Red Hat OpenStack Platform 6 on FlexPod. This document details in a later section installing Swift on NetApp E-Series (which we recommend for a production deployment), although you can substitute the instructions for iSCSI LUNs presented from the NetApp FAS in place of the E-Series LUNs.
