Whenever you create a new share, you must specify a share type. If you don’t specify one, the share creation will fail.
Director does not support automatically configuring or creating the
default share type during installation. However, director does set the
manila.conf configuration option
default. Deployers must create the
default share type after the overcloud has been deployed.
To create a basic share type named
default, run the following as the
stack user on the undercloud:
$ source ~/overcloudrc $ manila type-create default false
In the example,
manila type-create default is
false because there is no need for the NetApp driver to handle the life cycle of share servers. This is because we set
false in Chapter 3, Create the Environment File. Otherwise, if
ManilaNetappDriverHandlesShareServers is set to
true you can match the default share type to this. For more information about share types, see Creating and Managing Share Types (from the Red Hat OpenStack Platform Storage Guide).
