Description

Neil needs to fill in more specific requirements here, but for a starting point, something like:
"ceph-deploy rbd-client <host> <client-name> <pool-images-are-in>"
to get-or-create a client key with <client-name> that has the permissions it needs to access RBD images in the pool <pool-images-are-in>.

History

#1 Updated by Greg Farnum almost 8 years ago

The ceph-deploy admin command sets up a host with admin keys, so it has full permissions on the cluster. Presumably you'll want to generate clients with more limited keys. I suppose perhaps we could add functionality to create reasonable-default RGW or RBD keys.

#2 Updated by Neil Levine almost 8 years ago

Got it. so, yeah an alternative client switch which only installs limited keys would be very useful.

I'll create a separate ticket for the localhost logic.

#5 Updated by Neil Levine almost 8 years ago

Sage was less in favour of having ceph-deploy handle creation and key deployment, which I think I now agree with. However, we did discuss having a 'config push' option which could deploy a new ceph.conf to the cluster and could be used with clients too.

This is actually quite important as after the graceful copy of the initial ceph.conf to the mon/osd nodes, you are back to manual scp'ing ceph.conf every time you change it.
