Remove Nimble Storage Driver

The Nimble Storage driver was marked
unsupported during the Train release.  Since
then, the 3rd Party CI hasn't been fixed and
there has been no sign of activity from the
vendor.  As a result the driver is being removed.

============================
Nimble Storage volume driver
============================
Nimble Storage fully integrates with the OpenStack platform through
the Nimble Cinder driver, allowing a host to configure and manage Nimble
Storage array features through Block Storage interfaces.
Support for iSCSI storage protocol is available with NimbleISCSIDriver
Volume Driver class and Fibre Channel with NimbleFCDriver.
Support for the Liberty release and above is available from Nimble OS
2.3.8 or later.
Support for the Ocata release and above is available from Nimble OS 3.6 or
later.
Nimble Storage Cinder driver does not support port binding with multiple
interfaces on the same subnet due to existing limitation in os-brick. This
is partially referenced in the bug
https://bugs.launchpad.net/os-brick/+bug/1722432 but does not resolve
for multiple software iscsi ifaces.
Supported operations
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
* Create, delete, clone, attach, and detach volumes
* Create and delete volume snapshots
* Create a volume from a snapshot
* Copy an image to a volume
* Copy a volume to an image
* Extend a volume
* Get volume statistics
* Manage and unmanage a volume
* Enable encryption and default performance policy for a volume-type
extra-specs
* Force backup of an in-use volume.
Nimble Storage driver configuration
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Update the file ``/etc/cinder/cinder.conf`` with the given configuration.
In case of a basic (single back-end) configuration, add the parameters
within the ``[default]`` section as follows.
.. code-block:: ini
[default]
san_ip = NIMBLE_MGMT_IP
san_login = NIMBLE_USER
san_password = NIMBLE_PASSWORD
use_multipath_for_image_xfer = True
volume_driver = NIMBLE_VOLUME_DRIVER
In case of multiple back-end configuration, for example, configuration
which supports multiple Nimble Storage arrays or a single Nimble Storage
array with arrays from other vendors, use the following parameters.
.. code-block:: ini
[default]
enabled_backends = Nimble-Cinder
[Nimble-Cinder]
san_ip = NIMBLE_MGMT_IP
san_login = NIMBLE_USER
san_password = NIMBLE_PASSWORD
use_multipath_for_image_xfer = True
volume_driver = NIMBLE_VOLUME_DRIVER
volume_backend_name = NIMBLE_BACKEND_NAME
In case of multiple back-end configuration, Nimble Storage volume type
is created and associated with a back-end name as follows.
.. note::
Single back-end configuration users do not need to create the volume type.
.. code-block:: console
$ openstack volume type create NIMBLE_VOLUME_TYPE
$ openstack volume type set --property volume_backend_name=NIMBLE_BACKEND_NAME NIMBLE_VOLUME_TYPE
This section explains the variables used above:
NIMBLE_MGMT_IP
Management IP address of Nimble Storage array/group.
NIMBLE_USER
Nimble Storage account login with minimum ``power user`` (admin) privilege
if RBAC is used.
NIMBLE_PASSWORD
Password of the admin account for nimble array.
NIMBLE_VOLUME_DRIVER
Use either cinder.volume.drivers.nimble.NimbleISCSIDriver for iSCSI or
cinder.volume.drivers.nimble.NimbleFCDriver for Fibre Channel.
NIMBLE_BACKEND_NAME
A volume back-end name which is specified in the ``cinder.conf`` file.
This is also used while assigning a back-end name to the Nimble volume type.
NIMBLE_VOLUME_TYPE
The Nimble volume-type which is created from the CLI and associated with
``NIMBLE_BACKEND_NAME``.
.. note::
Restart the ``cinder-api``, ``cinder-scheduler``, and ``cinder-volume``
services after updating the ``cinder.conf`` file.
Nimble driver extra spec options
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Nimble volume driver also supports the following extra spec options:
'nimble:encryption'='yes'
Used to enable encryption for a volume-type.
'nimble:perfpol-name'=PERF_POL_NAME
PERF_POL_NAME is the name of a performance policy which exists on the
Nimble array and should be enabled for every volume in a volume type.
'nimble:multi-initiator'='true'
Used to enable multi-initiator access for a volume-type.
nimble:dedupe'='true'
Used to enable dedupe support for a volume-type.
'nimble:iops-limit'=IOPS_LIMIT
Used to set the IOPS_LIMIT between 256 and 4294967294 for all
volumes created for this volume-type.
'nimble:folder'=FOLDER_NAME
FOLDER_NAME is the name of the folder which exists on the Nimble array
and should be enabled for every volume in a volume type
These extra-specs can be enabled by using the following command:
.. code-block:: console
$ openstack volume type set --property KEY=VALUE VOLUME_TYPE
``VOLUME_TYPE`` is the Nimble volume type and ``KEY`` and ``VALUE`` are
the options mentioned above.
Configuration options
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Nimble storage driver supports these configuration options:
.. config-table::
:config-target: Nimble
cinder.volume.drivers.nimble
Multipathing
~~~~~~~~~~~~
In OpenStack environments where Cinder block device multipathing is desired
there are a few things to consider.
Configuring mulitpathing varies by system depending on the environment. In a
scenario where solely Nimble devices are being created by Cinder, the
following ``/etc/multipath.conf`` file may be used:
.. code-block:: text
defaults {
user_friendly_names yes
find_multipaths no
}
blacklist {
devnode "^(ram|raw|loop|fd|md|dm-|sr|scd|st)[0-9]*"
devnode "^hd[a-z]"
device {
vendor ".*"
product ".*"
}
}
blacklist_exceptions {
device {
vendor "Nimble"
product "Server"
}
}
devices {
device {
vendor "Nimble"
product "Server"
path_grouping_policy group_by_prio
prio "alua"
hardware_handler "1 alua"
path_selector "service-time 0"
path_checker tur
features "1 queue_if_no_path"
no_path_retry 30
failback immediate
fast_io_fail_tmo 5
dev_loss_tmo infinity
rr_min_io_rq 1
rr_weight uniform
}
}
After making changes to ``/etc/multipath.conf``, the multipath subsystem needs
to be reconfigured:
.. code-block:: console
# multipathd reconfigure
.. tip::
The latest best practices for Nimble devices can be found in the HPE Nimble
Storage Linux Integration Guide found on https://infosight.hpe.com
.. important::
OpenStack Cinder is currently not compatible with the HPE Nimble Storage
Linux Toolkit (NLT)
Nova needs to be configured to pickup the actual multipath device created on
the host.
In ``/etc/nova/nova.conf``, add the following to the ``[libvirt]`` section:
.. code-block:: ini
[libvirt]
volume_use_multipath = True
.. note::
In versions prior to Newton, the option was called ``iscsi_use_multipath``
After editing the Nova configuration file, the ``nova-conductor`` service
needs to be restarted.
.. tip::
Depending on which particular OpenStack distribution is being used, Nova
may use a different configuration file than the default.
To validate that instances get properly connected to the multipath device,
inspect the instance devices:
.. code-block:: console
# virsh dumpxml <Instance ID | Instance Name | Instance UUID>

The Nimble Storage driver was marked unsupported in the
Train release and has now been removed. All data on
Nimble Storage backends should be migrated to a supported
storage backend before upgrading your Cinder installation.
