Chapter 2. Process Description

Red Hat OpenStack Platform includes all the drivers required for all NetApp appliances supported by the Block Storage service. In addition, the Director also has the puppet manifests, environment files, and Orchestration templates necessary for integrating the NetApp appliance as a back end to the Overcloud.

Configuring the NetApp appliance as a back end involves editing the default environment file and including it in the Overcloud deployment. This file is available locally on the Undercloud, and can be edited to suit your environment.

After editing this file, invoke it through the Director. Doing so ensures that it will persist through future Overcloud updates. The following sections describe this process in greater detail.
