Appendix J. Importing an Existing Ceph Cluster to Ansible
You can configure Ansible to use a cluster deployed without Ansible. For example, if you upgraded Red Hat Ceph Storage 1.3 clusters to version 2 manually, configure them to use Ansible by following this procedure:
- After manually upgrading from version 1.3 to version 2, install and configure Ansible on the administration node.
Ensure that the Ansible administration node has passwordless
sshaccess to all Ceph nodes in the cluster. See Section 2.11, “Enabling Password-less SSH for Ansible” for more details.
