Red Hat Ceph Storage is being deployed today in a variety of different roles from Cinder block and ephemeral storage for OpenStack environments to object storage repositories to standard block devices in traditional storage environments. Historically, customers would install Red Hat Ceph Storage manually or even with the legacy tool ceph-deploy. Last year, Red Hat introduced Red Hat Storage Console to help simplify this process. This admin console both install Red Hat Ceph Storage and manage the cluster and report on performance. The following blog is a quick start guide to setting up a Red Hat Storage Console.

This blog assumes a few things before you begin the installation of Red Hat Storage Console:

  • A host with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 already installed
  • A host with NTP running
  • A host with a FQDN in DNS or host file
  • A host either registered to Red Hat Satellite or Red Hat Content Network with the following repos enabled:

rhel-7-server-rpms

rhel-7-server-optional-rpms

rhel-7-server-extras-rpms

If the following requirements are met above, we can begin the installation.

1. Run yum upgrade to update the host:

# yum upgrade

 

2. Subscribe the host the to two additional channels, rhel-7-server-rhscon-2-main-rpms & rhel-7-server-rhscon-2-installer-rpms, needed for the Red Hat Storage Console:

# subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-7-server-rhscon-2-main-rpms --enable=rhel-7-server-rhscon-2-installer-rpms

 

3. Install the Red Hat Storage Console packages needed:

yum install rhscon-core rhscon-ceph rhscon-ui

 

4. Configure the firewall rules (10443. 8080, 4505-4506, 10080, 2003, 443, 80, Ceph-installer) to allow the required Red Hat Storage Console traffic through:

#firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-port=10443/tcp
#firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-port=8080/tcp
#firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-port=4505-4506/tcp
#firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-port=10080/tcp
#firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-port=2003/tcp
#firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-service=ceph-installer
#firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-port=443/tcp
#firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-port=80/tcp

 

5. Configure skyring by running skyring-setup and answering the questions when prompted:

#skyring-setup

 

6. Red Hat Storage Console should now be accessible via the web at the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) specified in the skyring-setup (http://FQDN/skyring):

http://<hostname>/skyring

 

7. Once the login screen is visible, login with the default credentials of admin:admin:

8. Upon successful completion of login, the dashboard will be displayed:
