DeepSea stage 4 fails when there are NFS Ganesha changes

SUSE Enterprise Storage 5

When making changes to the NFS Ganesha configuration, for example adding and / or removing nodes, running stage 4 to implement the changes fails for each configured Ganesha node with:
       ID: wait for all processes
      Name: cephprocesses.wait
     Result: False
     Comment: Module function cephprocesses.wait executed
     Started: 16:48:32.313124
     Duration: 135277.053 ms

When looking directly on the node, no changes were made and none of the Ganesha RPMs were installed.


The current workaround is to run the Ganesha stage directly by executing:

# salt-run state.orch ceph.stage.ganesha


Missing jinja conditional in the main Ganesha configuration file.

Additional Information

Note that when running the Ganesha stage directly, the following error will still be seen for the designated Ganesha nodes:

[ERROR   ] Run failed on minions:,
      Name: /var/lib/ceph/radosgw/ceph-ganesha.vm-hanode1/keyring - Function: file.managed - Result: Changed Started: - 16:58:28.630072 Duration: 1052.463 ms

The above error is not critical, the relevant conf file will be created once a new NFS export is created via openATTIC for the relevant Ganesha nodes.
