You can download release package from https://github.com/01org/virtual-storage-manager/releases/tag/v2.1.0-a1.

Here is the Change Log:

2.1.0 (build 281)
------------------------------------

Special Notes
---------------
- This is 2.1 alpha 1 release, only very limited tests on it.
- Some spotlights:
        - Manage existing cluster through "Cluster Management\Import Cluster"
                0. applicable to 2.1 alpha 1.
                1. deploy a ceph cluster external (maybe there is already one running)
                2. deploy VSM with agents deployed on each ceph node with appropriate role defined.
                3. in VSM web ui:
                        1. navigate to "Cluster Management\Import Cluster"
                        2. you should see all ceph nodes listed.
                        3. click "import cluster", then we will see an new page where it asks for crushmap and ceph.conf
                4. there are two approaches to get crushmap:
                        1. paste crushmap directly into the text box under "Crushmap"
                        2. click "Auto Detect", then a dialog will pop up, you'd select one monitor host, and point where is the monitor keyring file on the monitor host.
                5. for ceph.conf, **we see some ceph.conf doesn't include osd information, if this is the case, you'd manually add them into ceph.conf.**
                6. when crushmap and ceph.conf are ready, click "validate" to see if all can pass. If yes, you could click "submit", if succeed, the message tip will show up to say the import is successful.
                7. wait for a few minutes before the status gets synced, then you will see the cluster status.
        - Crushmap management
                0. only draft UI, not ready.
- 16 new features are added, and 39 bugs are fixed till this release.

Re: VSM v2.1.0 Alpha build is just released.

Hi Yaguang,

Great news about the 2.1 alpha release! For those reading this thread, I'd like to clarify that the crushmap is expected to be in json format - which is the default format for the output of "ceph osd crush dump". If you try to get a crushmap by exporting a binary map and decompiling it, the format will be more of a .conf file style and will not work in the VSM import cluster crushmap dialog.
