I’m currently playing with Ceph and wanted to generate multiple machines (6) on my laptop to perform several tests. I needed :

  • 1 public network
  • 1 private network
  • Debian wheezy OS
  • Automatically install Ceph
  • Add disk for specific machines (OSD)

It wasn’t easy to make it work quickly as the documentation doesn’t give a lot of examples. But what a powerful solution when it works !
