Description Tejas 2017-02-08 13:50:12 UTC
Description of problem:
    WHen I run  "take-over-existing-cluster.yml" it fails with:

ERROR! vars file group_vars/all.yml was not found

However we have the group_vars placed at: as per the latest ansible settings
ceph-ansible]# ll /etc/ansible/group_vars/

The "take-over-existing-cluster.yml" should reflect this change in the group_vars placement.

From where are you running this playbook? Which path? Are you running under infrastructure-playbooks/? You need to move it up.

Comment 3 Christina Meno 2017-02-08 15:45:24 UTC

These are the docs for using this playbook. I assume that is what Tejas is using

It looks like those docs were written before we moved 'take-over-existing-cluster.yml' into infrastructure-playbooks/.


As a workaround could you try moving infrastructure-playbooks/take-over-existing-cluster.yml up a directory to /user/share/ceph-ansible. You would also need to symlink what you defined in /etc/ansible/group_vars/all.yml to /usr/share/ceph-ansible/group_vars/all.yml.

Once those two steps are done I imagine the playbook will complete successfully.


Comment 5 Tejas 2017-02-08 17:00:37 UTC
Gregory, Seb, 
    Yes the doc needs to reflect the changes introduced with the ceph-ansible rebase. I will track this in a separate bug.

    The workaround is successful, thanks.
