Hi Eric- Glad you got thought that part. I don’t use iscsi backed volumes for my gluster storage, so I don’t much advice for you there. I’ve cc’d the ovirt users list back in, someone there may be able to help you futher. It’s good practice to reply to the list and specific people when conversing here, so you might want to watch to be sure you don’t drop the cc: in the future.
Re: the storage master, it’s not related to where the VM disks are stored. Once you mange to get a new storage domain setup, you’ll be able to create disks on whichever domain you want, and that is how you determine what VM disk is hooked up to what. You can even have a VM with disks on multiple storage domains, can be good for high performance needs. The SDM may even move around if a domain become unavailable. You may want to check the list archives for discussion on this, I seem to recall some in the past. You also should confirm where the disks for your HA engine are located, they may be on your local raid disk instead of the iscsi disks if the SDM is on a local disk… Good luck, -Darrell > On Feb 14, 2020, at 3:03 PM, <eev...@digitaldatatechs.com> > <eev...@digitaldatatechs.com> wrote: > > I enabled gluster and reinstalled and all went well.
