Adding storage to deployed machine


#1

My setup:

MaaS 2.5.2 with physical machines deployed to a juju model and then enlisted back into the same MaaS as pods. I did it this way because it was deployed pre-2.5.

I have noticed disk performance issues on a specific pod and in an effort to fix that, I’d like to add some SSD drives to the machine. I have physically done that, but now I get to the MaaS part and outside of tear it all down and rebuild it, I’m not sure how I can get this hardware in use on the machines. I’m ok with adding a replacement VM and then nuking the old one at a time to use the new drives, but nuking it all at once would be painful. I think that step one would be to get MaaS to see the storage on the physical machine. Then I would need a way to compose machines from the pod using those drives.

I’m stuck at step one and can’t find documentation that would help. Does anyone have pointers for me?
