The majority of configurations to BeeGFS module can be done in a file like common.yaml with only the role Boolean values being changed for specific hosts.

The following example defines to isntall BeeGFS release 7.1 as well necessary flags to use Mellanox OFED.

beegfs::release: '7.1'
beegfs::version: present
beegfs::client_build_args: '-j8 BEEGFS_OPENTK_IBVERBS=1 OFED_INCLUDE_PATH=/usr/src/ofa_kernel/default/include/'
beegfs::mgmtd_store_directory: /data/beegfs/mgmtd
beegfs::meta_store_directory: /data/beegfs/meta
beegfs::storage_store_directory: /data/beegfs/storage
beegfs::client_mount_path: /mnt/beegfs

The following example is a host running Mgmtd, Metadata and Admon daemons:

beegfs::admon: true
beegfs::mgmtd: true
beegfs::meta: true

The following example is a host running Storage daemon:

beegfs::storage: true

Each BeeGFS role supports defining additional configurations for their respective config files:

  storeAllowFirstRunInit: 'false'
  storeAllowFirstRunInit: 'false'
  storeAllowFirstRunInit: 'false'




This Facter fact can be used to determine the installed version of the BeeGFS components.
