How to add new storage devices to swift (managed by Director)

Solution In Progress - Updated -


Need to add new swift device in the following environment:

  • RHOSP 13, 16.0, 16.1
  • During overcloud deployment Swift was configured to use /srv/node/d1 as a storage device (folder on local disk).
  • Existing overcloud templates were customized. SwiftRawDisks parameter was defined to use /dev/vdb drive to store swift data.
  • /dev/vdb wasn't used after running deploy command.

Need to finish swift data migration and delete /srv/node/d1 from list of swift's storage devices.
