mount.fuse.ceph - Man Page

mount ceph-fuse from /etc/fstab.

Synopsis

mount.fuse.ceph [-h] [-o OPTIONS [OPTIONS ...]]
device [device ...]
mountpoint [mountpoint ...]

Description

mount.fuse.ceph is a helper for mounting ceph-fuse from /etc/fstab.

To use mount.fuse.ceph, add an entry in /etc/fstab like:

DEVICE    PATH        TYPE        OPTIONS
none      /mnt/ceph   fuse.ceph   ceph.id=admin,_netdev,defaults  0 0
none      /mnt/ceph   fuse.ceph   ceph.name=client.admin,_netdev,defaults  0 0
none      /mnt/ceph   fuse.ceph   ceph.id=myuser,ceph.conf=/etc/ceph/foo.conf,_netdev,defaults  0 0

ceph-fuse options are specified in the Options column and must begin with 'ceph.' prefix. This way ceph related fs options will be passed to ceph-fuse and others will be ignored by ceph-fuse.

Options

ceph.id=<username>

Specify that the ceph-fuse will authenticate as the given user.

ceph.name=client.admin

Specify that the ceph-fuse will authenticate as client.admin

ceph.conf=/etc/ceph/foo.conf

Sets 'conf' option to /etc/ceph/foo.conf via ceph-fuse command line.

Any valid ceph-fuse options can be passed this way.

Additional Info

The old format /etc/fstab entries are also supported:

DEVICE                              PATH        TYPE        OPTIONS
id=admin                            /mnt/ceph   fuse.ceph   defaults   0 0
id=myuser,conf=/etc/ceph/foo.conf   /mnt/ceph   fuse.ceph   defaults   0 0
