VMware Storage Backend for Cinder


This charm provides a VMware storage backend for use with the Cinder charm.

To use:

juju deploy cinder
juju deploy --config config.yaml cinder-vmware
juju add-relation cinder-vmware cinder

NOTE: This charm only works with OpenStack Icehouse or better.


The cinder-vmware charm has mandatory configuration to support access to the vCenter server managing the vSphere deployment:

    host-ip: myvcenter.vsphere
    host-username: accessusername
    host-password: accesspassword

The charm also provides a configuration option for the folder under which created volumes will be stored:

    volume-folder: cinder-volumes

Place this configuration in the config.yaml file specified when deploying the charm.
