Josh, can you comment on feasibility for 1.3? Was this already taken care of as part of the RHEL  7.1 effort perchance?

Comment 3 Ken Dreyer (Red Hat) 2015-12-11 18:39:10 UTC
Mike, I assume we need to package and ship https://github.com/SUSE/lrbd ? I think that's the only userland change needed here - does that match your understanding?

lrbd package up for review in Fedora: bug 1303245

Still need to create an Ubuntu package.

Comment 10 Mike Christie 2016-03-03 00:25:57 UTC
Here are is info on how to use lrbd:


The difference between upstream and RHEL will be that we use iblock and upstream uses target_core_rbd.

However, in the RHEL version, I made iblock the default and only usable option, so you can't and do not need to pass in -I. Just run lrbd like described in the doc and it will use iblock.

And then of course if you run targetcli ls, the rbd device will show up in the iblock backend interface instead of the rbd backend one like in the pics on that page.

Comment 11 Federico Lucifredi 2016-03-03 01:29:50 UTC
Ping. We are still missing a QA ack on this one.

Comment 12 Vasu Kulkarni 2016-03-03 01:42:35 UTC

See how you can run this tests,

Eventually this should become part of our regression tests.

Comment 13 Tanay Ganguly 2016-03-08 19:05:56 UTC
Thanks Mike and Vasu, for providing the information.

Comment 14 Ken Dreyer (Red Hat) 2016-03-15 13:04:49 UTC
Note that this bug pertains to RHEL-only, not Ubuntu. The Ubuntu kernel does not have the features we need.

Comment 15 Mike McCune 2016-03-28 23:03:07 UTC
This bug was accidentally moved from POST to MODIFIED via an error in automation, please see mmccune@redhat.com with any questions

Comment 19 Ken Dreyer (Red Hat) 2016-05-31 16:15:32 UTC
I'm guessing we should rebase to a newer lrbd version, now that this is off the 2.0 schedule. Moving back to ASSIGNED in the meantime.
