SUSE Enterprise Storage 7


After upgrading from SES 6 to SES 7, although all OSDs are up and running ("ceph orch ps --daemon-type osd" shows all OSD daemons as "running") the "ceph orch ls" command however shows the OSD service similar to the following example, excerpt:
osd.default 0/8 - - osd_node1;osd_node2;osd_node3;... <unknown> <unknown>


The issue is cosmetic since all OSDs are up and running.


The "osdspec_affinity" metadata is not present for existing OSDs when upgraded from SES 6.

Additional Information

Although this is cosmetic, the situation is not ideal, currently the recommended way to resolve this cosmetic issue is to, one at a time, re-deploy each of the OSD hosts and its OSDs. This will allow the proper metadata to be set during creation since the OSD host and its OSDs are now created "new" on SES 7.

Alternatively, SUSE is working on a solution to be able to resolve this issue without having to re-remove and re-deploy the host and OSDs. For details contact SUSE Support.
