Ceph Barclamp from SOC7 is not discovering available drives that are detected as removable block device.

This document (7022844) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE Cloud 7
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 Service Pack 2 (SLES 12 SP2)


When trying to setup a Ceph cluster from SOC7 using the Ceph Barclamp, the error message similar to "Nodes Node1, Node2 and Node3 for ceph-osd role are missing at least one unclaimed disk larger than 20GB" appears at the top of the page. The "Disk Drives" is also shown as "Unknown".


The official patch that enables SOC7 to recognize removable block devices is now available.
The release notes for this patch is as follows:
  - ohai: Correct aacraid drivers disk removable flag (bsc#1085170)


If a disk drive is detected as a "removable" block device, it will be excluded and cannot be used by OSD.
