Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
See the attachment for the doc
Thank you for raising this bug.
Don - could you take a look at the attachment and work this into a guide similar to the Dell EqualLogic Back End Guide?
Thanks for the submission. I looked over the document you attached and from what I can see this is something we can integrate into the existing Dell EqualLogic guide:
By that I mean we'll turn that guide into a "Dell Back End Guide" that documents both EqualLogic and StorageCenter. And in the future, if you guys want to document other supported Dell products we can just add it there. Sound good?
Dell Storage center is different storage from EQL one.
Dell Storage Center supports Compellent that has a different cinder driver from EQL and different storage product family.
They are two different storage products with their own cinder driver. We prefer to have separate guides

1st Draft of RH version
Hi Rajini, attached is a first draft. I made some minor changes, and also noticed that your original document doesn't include any information about having to troubleshoot size discrepancies with the back-end. Was that only applicable to EqualLogic?

Yes, the backend discrepancies is only applicable to Equallogic.

Final build approved. Document should be published in the customer portal at the following link alongside once A2 is out the door later today:
Assigning Martin as the QA contact.
Martin - could you take a look at the content above?
Hi Rajini, I've processed the changes you requested in your previous email. In addition, I also added a section on Storage Center driver info in the Configuration Reference here:
I also added a link to that from the Dell Storage Center article we just released. Please advise if you have any further requests.
Two main problems
1. We only support ISCSI for Dell storage Center for the OSp7 solution althought fibre channel is supported by Openstack driver. But the link has Fibre Channel mentioned
2. Table 2.3. Description of Dell Storage Center volume driver configuration options - This table is missing the required confirguation and only the Optional configurations are listed

Dell SC section in Configuration Reference

> Dell SC section in Configuration Reference
I've removed the FC sections and described each required and optional section, although I only left the options specific to Dell SC in the table. I've attached a draft of the section here (I only included that section as a PDF of the entire Configuration Reference would be quite large).
Let me know if any other changes are in order. If not, then we'll go publish the changes.
Looks good. Thank you for all the corrections. Please go head and publish
Changes have now been published to the portal.
