Configuring OpenStack Compute for nova-volume

We now need to tell our OpenStack Compute service about our new nova-volume service.

Getting ready

Ensure you are logged in to your compute nodes, so we can install and configure the appropriate packages in order to use the nova-volume attached storage.

How to do it...

Configuring OpenStack Compute nodes to use nova-volume involves installing the appropriate package (that can communicate back to the iSCSI target) on our node.

  1. First, install the open-iscsi package on our OpenStack Compute host. The OpenStack Compute host is known as an iSCSI Initiator.
    sudo apt-get -y install open-iscsi
    
  2. Start the iSCSI service through the following command:
    sudo service open-iscsi start
    
  3. Finally, we instruct OpenStack Compute ...
