SUSE Enterprise Storage 6


When running DeepSea stage 4 this fails as per the below example error, excerpt :
    ID: create `hostname` daemon rados object
    Name: rados -p ganesha_config -N ganesha create conf-`hostname`
    Result: False
    Comment: Command "rados -p ganesha_config -N ganesha create conf-`hostname`" run
    Started: 12:28:52.516697
    Duration: 257.904 ms
               error creating ganesha_config/conf-`hostname`: (17) File exists



On the admin node edit the file "/srv/salt/ceph/ganesha/rados_config.sls"

Please adjust this line (line 6):
- unless: "rados -p $POOL -N ganesha ls | grep -q ^conf-{{ host }}$"

To instead read:
- unless: "rados -p ganesha_config -N ganesha ls | grep -q ^conf-{{ host }}$"


Undefined variable specified.
