IP ACL creation

This guide shows you how to create an IP ACL to allow access to your ceph cluster.

Last update 26th March 2018

Using web interface

Using web interface is the easiest way to create an IP ACL.

First, connect to the Cloud Disk Array manager. Under 'Platforms and services' select your Ceph cluster. On the bottom right, you will find the existing ACL. By default there is no ACL.

Ceph pools

Get your ip address.

admin@server:~$ ip -4 a
2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP group default qlen 1000
    inet brd scope global eth0
      valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

Add your IP.

Ceph pools

And create the IP ACL.

After the pool creation, you are back to manager. You can see that cluster status has changed because the ACL is being created.

Using API

You can check ACL creation by listing ACL.

GET /dedicated/ceph/98d166d8-7c88-47b7-9cb6-63acd5a59c15/acl
    network: ""
    id: 57054
    netmask: ""
    family: "IPV4"
