Hi, I am wondering if we can a template with a pre configured D, E and F drives along with the C drive in OpenStack. The OS flavor can be W2k12 R2. I am using Liberty release of Suse Openstack

Thanks Adrian, Can you share the sample script that can be used? The requirement goes like this, We have to automate the SQL deployment for which I am creating the .ini file. That file has the options to mention where to install the DB (D Drive), Where the logs should be directed (E Drive) and application logs (F drive). Before I create the batch file the Server should have got these drives assigned. Again the size if these drives depends on the Database size that we want. For Eg, if we want the db to be 100 GB, D drive shd be 110% i.e 110 GB, E and F shd be 50% i.e 50 GB. I am looking to automate this too, can this be achieved in OpenStack? If yes, please let me know how to go about this. Appreciate your time and assistance Regards, Nagesh

For the moment, you can use cloudbase-init localscripts plugin or userdata scripts to manually configure your desired drives' state. Can you give a more detailed example on how to generalize your wanted setup?

Thank you,

Adrian Vladu

Hello Adrian, Sorry for the late response, I am looking for a script that will be called to run to add the storage from the SAN and initialise the drives as per the requirement. We have a factor too, for eg if D drive is 50 GB, we need E and F to be 25 GB
