Use Direct Attached Storage (JBOD)

This topic describes how to configure the DAS-JBOD as the block storage backend provider for the Storage Controller (SC).

To configure DAS-JBOD block storage for the zone, run the following commands on the CLC
  1. Configure the SC to use the Direct Attached Storage for EBS.
    The output of the command should be similar to:
  2. Verify that the property value is now: 'das'
  3. Verify that the SC is listed; note that it may be in the broken state:
    euserv-describe-services --filter service-type=storage
  4. Set the DAS device name property. The device name can be either a raw device (/dev/sdX, for example), or the name of an existing Linux LVM volume group.

    For example:

Your DAS-JBOD backend is now ready to use with Eucalyptus.
