Volume provisioner and flexvolume driver can easily be deployed on kubernetes cluster. Following document explains quick steps to deploy ovirt-openshift-extensions on kubernetes enviroment.


  1. Checkout sample deployment yaml's from

  2. Update configmap.yaml to provide your ovirt connections details. Mainly you need to modify url, password fields in the configmap.yaml Create config map by:

    kubectl create -f configmap.yaml
  3. Create cluster role, role bindings & service account required for volume provisioner and flexvoume driver.

     kubectl create -f rbac-all-in-one.yaml
  4. Create volume provisoner deployment.

    kubectl create -f provisioner.yaml

    Confirm that ovirt-volume-provisioner pod is scheduled and up by running kubectl get pods.

  5. Deploy flexvolume driver on all compute nodes by running following on the master node.

    kubectl create -f flexvolume.yaml

    You can confirm that ovirt-flexvolume-driver pod is scheduled and up on all kubernetes get pods. Please check the logs for provisioner & flexvolume-driver pods to confirm it can access ovirt url using 'kubectl get logs YOUR-POD-NAME'. If kubenetes compute node has problem accessing ovirt engine url, you might need to tweak your kubernetes cluster network configs or provide custom dns settings in flexvoume.yaml & provisoner.yaml and recreate them.

            - YOUR-DNS-SERVER-IP

Now your kubernetes cluster is ready to provision volumes from ovirt.


Test your cluster by checking out Update ovirtStorageDomain field in test-flex-pod-all-in-one.yaml file to refer to your ovirt storage domain name on which volume needs to be provisioned.

Then spin off testpodwithflex by running

kubectl create -f test-flex-pod-all-in-one.yaml

Verify that volume is provisioned on your strorage domain and it's attached compute node where testpodwithflex is scheduled.

Enjoy your setup. Your feedback and contributions are most welcome.
