Configuration of Glance with NetApp FAS

By specifying the value of filesystem_store_datadir to be a directory that is the mount point for an NFS share that is served from a NetApp FlexVol volume, you can have a single filesystem that can be mounted from one or more glance-registry servers.


The NFS mount for the filesystem_store_datadir is not managed by Glance; therefore, you must use the standard Linux mechanisms (e.g. /etc/fstab or NFS automounter) to ensure that the NFS mount exists before Glance starts.


Be sure to refer to the Clustered Data ONTAP NFS Best Practices and Implementation Guide for information on how to optimally set up the NFS export for use with Glance, and NetApp Data Compression and Deduplication Deployment and Implementation Guide.
