Migrating from ganeti to OpenStack via Ceph

On ganeti, shutdown the instance and activate its disks:

z2-8:~# gnt-instance shutdown nerrant
Waiting for job 1089813 for nerrant...
z2-8:~# gnt-instance activate-disks nerrant
z2-8.host.gnt:disk/0:/dev/drbd10

On an OpenStack Havana installation using a Ceph cinder backend, create a volume with the same size:

# cinder create --volume-type ovh --display-name nerrant 10

rbd image 'volume-3ec2035e-ff76-43a9-bbb3-6c003c1c0e16':
        size 10240 MB in 2560 objects

        format: 2
        features: layering

On a host connected to the Ceph cluster and running a linux-kernel > 3.8 ( because of the format: 2 above ), map to a bloc device with:

# rbd map --pool ovh volume-3ec2035e-ff76-43a9-bbb3-6c003c1c0e16
# rbd showmapped
id pool image                                       snap device
1  ovh  volume-3ec2035e-ff76-43a9-bbb3-6c003c1c0e16 -    /dev/rbd1

Copy the ganeti volume with:

z2-8:~# pv < /dev/drbd10 | ssh bm0014 dd of=/dev/rbd1
2,29GB 0:09:14 [4,23MB/s] [==========================>      ] 22% ETA 0:31:09

and unmap the device when it completes.

rbd unmap /dev/rbd1

The volume is ready to boot.
