6.2. Create the Block Storage Service Database

Create the database and database user used by the Block Storage services. All steps must be performed on the database server, while logged in as the root user.

Procedure 6.1. Creating the Block Storage Services Database

  1. Connect to the database service:
    # mysql -u root -p
  2. Create the cinder database:
    mysql> CREATE DATABASE cinder;
  3. Create a cinder database user and grant the user access to the cinder database:
    mysql> GRANT ALL ON cinder.* TO 'cinder'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'PASSWORD';
    mysql> GRANT ALL ON cinder.* TO 'cinder'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'PASSWORD';
    Replace PASSWORD with a secure password that will be used to authenticate with the database server as this user.
  4. Flush the database privileges to ensure that they take effect immediately:
    mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
  5. Exit the mysql client:
    mysql> quit
