I would like to request a Feature Freeze Exception for Removing the File Tree on Delete When Using Nested Shares with 3PAR: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/290209/

Originally, this was filed as a blueprint and marked as a new feature (https://blueprints.launchpad.net/manila/+spec/hpe3par-nested-deletion), but it was reclassified as a bug fix (https://bugs.launchpad.net/manila/+bug/1538800) soon after. When deleting a nested share from 3PAR, the file tree is not deleted, making it so the contents within the 'deleted' share can still be accessed. This bug fix aims to solve the problem by mounting the parent share and deleting the file tree of the share requested. The issue is isolated only to the 3PAR driver.

This patch adds configuration options for the username, password, and domain in order to mount a CIFS share. Config options are needed in order to fix this issue because without valid credentials, we cannot mount a CIFS share to delete the lingering files. Because of these options we are adding, the fix is to be treated as a feature over a bug. I am requesting the Feature Freeze Exception so we can get this fix for the 3PAR driver into Mitaka.

Thank You,
Alex O'Rourke
