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

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

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

1

In vCenter, select Home > VMware Integrated OpenStack > Manage.

2

Select the Nova 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

In the Select a Nova node page of the Add Nova Datastores dialog box, select the cluster to which you want to add a datastore, and click Next.

5

In the Add Nova datastore page, select one or more datastores to add to the cluster, and click Next.

6

Review the proposed configuration, and click Finish.

The storage capacity for the selected Compute node increases accordingly with the size of the additional datastore.
