[Openstack-operators] Ceph puppet module

Hey Stuart,

You might want to look at (and use, if you want) the built-in roles and profiles layer [1] which gives you a good idea of how the module is used.

It leverages ceph::profile::params to pass values [2] to other classes such as ceph::profile::osd [3].

Another good place to look at how to use the module would be the integration tests [4].
Since the module is integration tested, this means we actually use the module to deploy a virtual Ceph cluster and we test that the cluster works - see for example the tests for ceph::profile::osd [4].

I'm dmsimard on #puppet-openstack and #openstack-operators if you need a hand to get this to work.
This is still a relatively new module in comparison to the likes of puppet-nova and such. Feedback and contributions are appreciated!

Please review the USECASES.md such as [1]. You should find usable examples there. If you are still having problems please reach out with a more detail about what you configuration you are attempting to deploy. The module authors can be found in #puppet-openstack and are usually lurking on the puppet-openstack mailing list (CC'd).

Hey all

Im having a complete nightmare trying to get ceph deployed using the https://github.com/stackforge/puppet-ceph module. Scant documentation isn't helping my cause!

Is anybody else using this module? Im attempting to deploy ceph as a cinder backend in Juno on Ubuntu 14.04 although I haven't gotten as far as integration yet.

Does anyone have working example's I could look at?
