Setting up Power Control

Follow these instructions to configure the Power Control.

vagrant provision mds1 mds2 oss1 oss2 --provision-with create-zpools

Creating a Filesystem

To create a filesystem, simply navigate to Configuration->File Systems and click the Create button. Make the following selections:

After the selections have been made, click the button to create the filesystem. If you have any issues creating the filesystem there is a good chance that the interface for 10.73.20.x is not assigned to Lustre Network 0. If this happens, stop the filesystem and update the interfaces accordingly.
