Description Marius Cornea 2016-01-04 06:39:28 EST
Description of problem:
I am trying to do a RHOS8 deployment and passing the Ceph pool names into an environment files. Deployment fails because there is no CinderRbdPoolName defined in the template. 

This used to work with RHOS7.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to deploy overcloud
openstack overcloud deploy \
    --templates ~/templates/my-overcloud \
    -e ~/templates/virt-ha-ceph.yaml \
    -e ~/templates/my-overcloud/environments/network-isolation.yaml \
    -e ~/templates/network-environment.yaml \
    -e ~/templates/firstboot-environment.yaml \
    -e ~/templates/ceph.yaml  \
    -e ~/templates/my-overcloud/environments/puppet-pacemaker.yaml

2. Contents of ~/templates/ceph.yaml:
stack@instack:~>>> cat ~/templates/ceph.yaml
  # the following parameters enable Ceph backends for Cinder, Glance, and Nova
  CephClientUserName: openstack
  NovaEnableRbdBackend: true
  CinderEnableRbdBackend: true
  GlanceBackend: rbd
  NovaRbdPoolName: vms
  CinderRbdPoolName: volumes
  GlanceRbdPoolName: images

  # finally we disable the Cinder LVM backend
  CinderEnableIscsiBackend: false

Actual results:
stack@instack:~>>> time bash deploy.command
Deploying templates in the directory /home/stack/templates/my-overcloud
ERROR: The Parameter (CinderRbdPoolName) was not defined in template.

Expected results:
Deployment succeeds.
Comment 1 Alexander Chuzhoy 2016-01-04 10:44:01 EST
Same applies to Nova and Glance, i.e.:

ERROR: The Parameter (NovaRbdPoolName) was not defined in template.

ERROR: The Parameter (GlanceRbdPoolName) was not defined in template.
Comment 2 Giulio Fidente 2016-02-08 09:00:56 EST

in RHOS8 these should be passed via


and not


unfortunately the sample storage-environment.yaml file in RHOS7 used to have "parameters:" but the first will work with RHOS7 too.

Both the sample environment files puppet-ceph-external.yaml and storage-environment.yaml in RHOS8 use "parameter_defaults:" now.

Can you please confirm that this fixes the problem?
Comment 3 Giulio Fidente 2016-02-17 06:39:44 EST
Yogev I think you tested this as well recently and were able to customize the pool names?
