Bug Description

I'm trying to enable native_glusterfs in my environment.

I'm basically following:
with some difference:
1. my OS for gluser is ubuntu 14.04 (with glusterfs-server 3.5.3 from ppa:gluster/glusterfs-3.5 )
2. my OS for manila is ubuntu 14.10 (with glusterfs-client 3.4.2)

After I run command:
manila access-allow $my_share_name cert

I get error in share.log:

@Li Chen,

For Manila Native driver, the minimum version of GlusterFS is 3.6, which has the SSL support.
Since you are using 3.5.x its failing with that error.

Looking at your comment above, it seems you are using Ubuntu, check to see if he has 3.6 deb packages. At the moment I don't have the direct link to the 3.6 ppa but googling should help.

If you still don't get the 3.6 deb packages, pls mail gluster-users list to get right link.



P.S. Pls don't use latest glusterfs or night build (as said in my blog) since there are recent changes to glusterfs SSL that causes the native driver to break. Its recomemended to use 3.6 series only

So, basically the problem you experience seems to occur due to using non-supported versions of certain software components, which is not a bug as such.

However, we see two ways to improve the situation:

- You should get an early and clear error message that clarifies incompatibility
- The exception you have in your logs should have the template variables substituted in its message.

Thank you for letting us
