 Configure FlashSystem

 Configure storage array

The volume driver requires a pre-defined array. Users need to create an array on FlashSystem before using the volume driver. An existing array also can be used and existing data will not be deleted.


FlashSystem can only create one array, so no configuration option is needed for the IBM FlashSystem driver to assign it.

 Configure user authentication for the driver

The driver requires access to the FlashSystem management interface using SSH. It should be provided with the FlashSystem management IP using the san_ip flag, and the management port should be provided by the san_ssh_port flag. By default, the port value is configured to be port 22 (SSH).


Make sure the compute node running the cinder-volume driver has SSH network access to the storage system.

Using password authentication, assign a password to the user on the FlashSystem. See the driver configuration flags for the user and password in the section called “Enable IBM FlashSystem FC driver” or the section called “Enable IBM FlashSystem iSCSI driver”.
