Install and configure a share node

This section describes how to install and configure a share node for the Shared File Systems service.


The manila-share process can run in two modes, with and without handling of share servers. Some drivers may support either modes; while some may only support one of the two modes. See the Configuration Reference to determine if the driver you choose supports the driver mode desired. This tutorial describes setting up each driver mode using an example driver for the mode.

Note that installation and configuration vary by distribution.
