Overview

This charm provides the Manila shared file service for an OpenStack Cloud.

In order to use the manila charm, a suitable backend charm is needed to configure a share backend. Without a backend subordinate charm related to the manila-charm there will be no manila backends configured; the manila charm will be stuck in the blocked state.

Manila share backends are configured using subordinate charms

It's necessary to have the ability to configure a share backend independently of the main charm. This means that plugin charms will be used to configure each backend. Multiple backend charms can be related to the manila charm to allow a manaila (juju) application to support multiple share backends.

Essentially, a plugin needs to be able to configure:

  • it's section in the manila.conf along with any network plugin's that it needs (assuming that it's a share that manages it's own share-instance).
  • ensure that the relevant services are restarted.

This pre-release of manila provides (in the charm store):

  • charm-manila: the main charm,
  • interface-manila-plugin : the interface for plugging in the generic backend (and other interfaces),
  • charm-manila-generic: the plugin for configuring the generic backend.

The backend provides a piece of the manila.conf configuration file with the sections necessary to configure the backend. This is mostly for the share, rather than the api level.

Usage

Manila (plus manila-generic) relies on services from the mysql/percona, rabbitmq-server, keystone charms, and a storage backend charm. The following yaml file will create a small, unconfigured, OpenStack system with the necessary components to start testing with Manila. Note that these target the 'next' OpenStack charms which are essentially 'edge' charms.

and then (with juju 2.x):

    juju deploy manila.yaml

Note that this OpenStack system will need to be configured (in terms of networking, images, etc.) before testing can commence.
