A. Configuring a Default Share Type (Optional)

At present, the director does not automatically specify a default share type for the Shared File System service. This is why you need to specify a share type every time you create a share.

You can, however, manually define a default share type. To do so, open the /etc/manila/manila.conf after the Shared File System service is deployed. Then, add the following line to the [DEFAULT] section:

default_share_type = default

If the Shared File System service is deployed on multiple nodes, apply this same change to the /etc/manila/manila.conf of each of those nodes. Then, restart the service by performing the following steps:

  1. Log in to any Controller node as heat-admin.
  2. Run the following command:

    $ sudo systemctl restart *manila*
