Openshift Ceph RBD for dynamic provisioning

Page content

In this post I will show you how can you use CEPH RBD for persistent storagi on Openshift.

Parst of the Openshift series

Environment

# openshift cluster
192.168.1.41    openshift01 # master node
192.168.1.42    openshift02 # infra node
192.168.1.43    openshift03 # worker node

# ceph cluster
192.168.1.31    ceph01
192.168.1.32    ceph02
192.168.1.33    ceph03

Prerequirement

RBD volume provisioner needs admin key from Ceph to provision storage. To get the admin key from Ceph cluster use this command:

sudo ceph --cluster ceph auth get-key client.admin | base64
QVFBOFF2SlZheUJQRVJBQWgvS2cwT1laQUhPQno3akZwekxxdGc9PQ==

nano ceph-admin-secret.yaml
apiVersion: v1
data:
  key: QVFBOFF2SlZheUJQRVJBQWgvS2cwT1laQUhPQno3akZwekxxdGc9PQ==
kind: Secret
metadata:
  name: ceph-admin-secret
  namespace: kube-system
type: kubernetes.io/rbd

I will also create a separate Ceph pool for

sudo ceph --cluster ceph osd pool create k8s 1024 1024
sudo ceph --cluster ceph auth get-or-create client.k8s mon 'allow r' osd 'allow rwx pool=k8s'
sudo ceph --cluster ceph auth get-key client.k8s | base64
QVFBOFF2SlZheUJQRVJBQWgvS2ctS2htOFNSZnRvclJPRk1jdXc9PQ==

nano ceph-secret-k8s.yaml
apiVersion: v1
data:
  key: QVFBOFF2SlZheUJQRVJBQWgvS2ctS2htOFNSZnRvclJPRk1jdXc9PQ==
kind: Secret
metadata:
  name: ceph-secret-k8s
  namespace: kube-system
type: kubernetes.io/rbd

# on all openshift node
yum install -y ceph-common

# on one openshift master node
nano  k8s-storage.yaml
apiVersion: storage.k8s.io/v1
kind: StorageClass
metadata:
  annotations:
    storageclass.kubernetes.io/is-default-class: "true"
  name: k8s
parameters:
  adminId: admin
  adminSecretName: ceph-admin-secret
  adminSecretNamespace: kube-system
  imageFeatures: layering
  imageFormat: "2"
  monitors: 192.168.1.31:6789, 192.168.1.32:6789, 192.168.1.33:6789
  pool: k8s
  userId: k8s
  userSecretName: ceph-secret-k8s
provisioner: kubernetes.io/rbd
reclaimPolicy: Delete
volumeBindingMode: Immediate


oc create -f ceph-admin-secret.yaml
oc create -f ceph-secret-k8s.yaml
oc create -f k8s-storage.yaml

Add secrets to existng namespaces

# on one openshift master node
oc project default
oc apply -f ceph-secret-k8s.yaml

oc project management-infra
oc apply -f ceph-secret-k8s.yaml

oc project openshift-infra
oc apply -f ceph-secret-k8s.yaml

oc project openshift-logging
oc apply -f ceph-secret-k8s.yaml

oc project openshift-metrics-server
oc apply -f ceph-secret-k8s.yaml

oc project openshift-monitoring
oc apply -f ceph-secret-k8s.yaml

Add secret to template

If we add the secret to the template iw will be present in all of the newly created namespaces.

# on one openshift master node
su - origin
oc adm create-bootstrap-project-template -o yaml > template.yaml
# add secrets to  the yml without namespace
nano template.yaml
...
- apiVersion: v1
  data:
    key: QVFBOFF2SlZheUJQRVJBQWgvS2ctS2htOFNSZnRvclJPRk1jdXc9PQ==
  kind: Secret
  metadata:
    name: ceph-secret-k8s
  type: kubernetes.io/rbd
...
oc create -f template.yaml -n default

# on all the openshift master nodes
nano /etc/origin/master/master-config.yaml
...
projectConfig:
  projectRequestTemplate: "default/project-request"
...
