      • created storage for jpr and rsync'd existing home (ticket:231)
      • created nfs mounts from new ceph-based home from nas-01 and test local dir on nas-01 to head node.
    • ceph storage cluster in HSV
      • pending: manual install of centos 6 like gluster in hvill, jpr needs to respond on clarifications
  • Crashplan Pilot

  • old pending issues
    • ai: need to create a uab public to floating-public translation table
    • ai: need to embed table in DNS
    • ai: jpr: apply changes to ceph read caching, requires nova-compute restart. pending understanding crowbar and chef
    • todo: we need access to the admin node interface via the controller
  • dspace report.

Go over steps for mounting ceph on nas-01, upgraded client to dumpling and map out the paths on nas-01 for mounting in and NFS export. Set up the NFS exports to the head node to allow comparison of existing home dir infrastructure with Ceph-based back end.
