Documentation #46691

Updated by Sebastian Wagner over 3 years ago

Sometimes, users want to deploy OSDs completely manual. Might be drive groups are not expressive enough, or there is some bug preventing the automation from succeeding. 

 Therfor we should document a manual way like so: 

 h3. prepare 

 ceph-volume prepare 

  as you wish (note (not that you should add `--no-systemd`) 

 h3. List  

 run `ceph-volume lvm list` and note the created OSDs 

 h3. Manual container deployment 

 for each listed OSD, run: 

 cephadm deploy --name osd.x
