==================================

Hi,
      From vdsm code i can see support for storage domain of type
      SHARED_FS
But when trying to configure a new storage domain, i don't see
SHARED_FS
as a available domtype filed in the dropdown.

I want to use shared FS to connect to try and connect to gluster
mount
point on my node, but unable to as I don't see that option.

  From http://www.ovirt.org/wiki/Features/PosixFSConnection - I
  understand
that its the same as sharedFS, so what is PosixFSConnection then, is
it
just a new interface that provides a wrapper for what is sharedFS now
?
It's the proper name for the feature as it allows you to support not only 
shared FS types but also other local FS types (e.g. btrfs), so we adjusted the 
name to better reflect the feature.

The status of this says Done, but I don't see the UI part of this, am
I
missing something.
Status says:

Done:
   Make needed changes in VDSM (http://gerrit.ovirt.org/559)
To do:
   Make needed change in Ovirt-Engine
   Make needed change in the GUIs

So as you can see vdsm work is done (except for bugs) but the rest is not 
implemented yet (patches welcome :)

Also pls let me know if usign sharedFS to make the node use gluster
mount
is correct or not ?
It is the primary incentive for this feature and definitely correct until we 
have a dedicated (optimized) implementation for gLuster (which will support the 
gLuster native client etc).


When you say native gluster client, do you mean coming up with a libglusterfs python bindings
and integration them as a module in vdsm ?

thanx,
deepak
