You can increase the number of datastores available to the Image Service node in your VMware Integrated OpenStack deployment.

Adding a datastore to the Image Service node causes the Glance service to restart, which might cause a temporary disruption to the OpenStack services in general.

Prerequisites

Verify that you have datastores available. See the vSphere Web Client documentation.

Procedure

  1. In the vSphere Web Client, select Home > VMware Integrated OpenStack > Manage.
  2. Click the Glance Storage tab.

    This tab displays the datastores that are currently available, their status, and other details.

  3. Click the green plus-sign icon (+) at the top of the panel.
  4. On the Add Glance datastore page, select one or more datastores to add to the cluster, and click Next.
  5. Review the proposed configuration, and click Finish.

Results

The storage capacity for the Image Service node increases accordingly with the size of the additional datastore.
