I think we need to discuss the exact use-cases here since the requirement is not clear
Comment 4 Gregory Meno 2016-02-11 17:44:57 EST
I met with Dusmant and we agreed
If we provide this functionality USM will be responsible for validating/dealing with the result in the cases where we would be asked to perform an operation that damages the clusters ability to store data

Andrew does ceph-ansible have this capability
Comment 6 Andrew Schoen 2016-03-21 13:18:24 EDT
ceph-ansible does not currently have the ability.
Comment 9 Jeff Applewhite 2016-10-14 09:13:49 EDT
what is the status of this in ansible presently - still not addressed?
