Description jliberma@redhat.com 2015-08-11 01:39:00 EDT
Description of problem:

Existing product docs should mention the following limitations of customizing Ceph OSDs using hiera:

1. OSPd will not create partitions on the journal disk. Partitions must be manually created by user before installing Ceph storage servers.
2. OSPd will only create Ceph OSDs and journals on partitions with GPT disklabels. These must also be configured prior to hiera customization.

Example: parted /dev/sdb1 mklabel gpt

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Assigning to Dan for review.
Comment 5 Dan Macpherson 2015-09-08 21:55:31 EDT
This has not been pushed live:


There is now a note at the end of this section that reads:

== Important ==
The director does not create partitions on the journal disk. Manually create the journal partitions before installing Ceph storage servers.
The Ceph Storage OSDs and journals partitions require GPT disk labels, which you also configure prior to customization. For example, use the following command on the potential Ceph Storage host to create a GPT disk label for a disk or partition:

# parted [device] mklabel gpt

Jacob, how does this suit your request? Are there any further changes you need to the Ceph config?
