Finalize installation for Ubuntu and Debian¶
Default configuration files vary by distribution. You might need
to add these sections and options rather than modifying existing
sections and options. Also, an ellipsis (
...) in the configuration
snippets indicates potential default configuration options that you
This section applies to Ubuntu 14.04 (LTS) and Debian.
/etc/swift/swift.conffile from the Object Storage source repository:
# curl -o /etc/swift/swift.conf \ https://opendev.org/openstack/swift/raw/branch/master/etc/swift.conf-sample
/etc/swift/swift.conffile and complete the following actions:
[swift-hash]section, configure the hash path prefix and suffix for your environment.
[swift-hash] ... swift_hash_path_suffix = HASH_PATH_SUFFIX swift_hash_path_prefix = HASH_PATH_PREFIX
Replace HASH_PATH_PREFIX and HASH_PATH_SUFFIX with unique values.
Keep these values secret and do not change or lose them.
[storage-policy:0]section, configure the default storage policy:
[storage-policy:0] ... name = Policy-0 default = yes
swift.conffile to the
/etc/swiftdirectory on each storage node and any additional nodes running the proxy service.
On all nodes, ensure proper ownership of the configuration directory:
# chown -R root:swift /etc/swift
On the controller node and any other nodes running the proxy service, restart the Object Storage proxy service including its dependencies:
# service memcached restart # service swift-proxy restart
On the storage nodes, start the Object Storage services:
# swift-init all start
The storage node runs many Object Storage services and the swift-init command makes them easier to manage. You can ignore errors from services not running on the storage node.
