Description

http://ceph.com/docs/master/start/quick-ceph-deploy/

ceph-deploy new {node-name}
ceph-deploy new ceph-node

node-name is somewhat misleading. This should probably say 'hostname' with examples.

e.g.
Ceph needs a working DNS entry with reverse mappings for every 'node'. For example we have a server called ceph-server1.big-isp.com

ceph-deploy new ceph-server1

We could also use footnote about the /etc/hosts problem where most distros map the hostname and FQDN to a 127.* address. nsswitch.conf defaults to looking in files then network. Just a comment about commenting the hostname line out would be helpful, perhaps in a troubleshooting section.

History

#1 Updated by Ross Turk over 6 years ago

I think it might be helpful to have a section of the QSG that describes the basic networking requirements (i.e., hosts must resolve, ping, etc.) The SSH stuff is in there, it makes sense that the DNS/hostname stuff should be too?
