    Kubernetes NFS Subdir External Provisioner

    NFS subdir external provisioner is an automatic provisioner that use your existing and already configured NFS server to support dynamic provisioning of Kubernetes Persistent Volumes via Persistent Volume Claims. Persistent volumes are provisioned as ${namespace}-${pvcName}-${pvName}.

    Note: This repository is migrated from https://github.com/kubernetes-incubator/external-storage/tree/master/nfs-client. As part of the migration:

    • The container image name and repository has changed to k8s.gcr.io/sig-storage and nfs-subdir-external-provisioner respectively.
    • To maintain backward compatibility with earlier deployment files, the naming of NFS Client Provisioner is retained as nfs-client-provisioner in the deployment YAMLs.
    • One of the pending areas for development on this repository is to add automated e2e tests. If you would like to contribute, please raise an issue or reach us on the Kubernetes slack #sig-storage channel.

    How to deploy NFS Subdir External Provisioner to your cluster

    To note again, you must already have an NFS Server.

    With Helm

    Follow the instructions from the helm chart README.

    The tl;dr is

    $ helm repo add nfs-subdir-external-provisioner https://kubernetes-sigs.github.io/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner/
    $ helm install nfs-subdir-external-provisioner nfs-subdir-external-provisioner/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner \
        --set nfs.server=x.x.x.x \
        --set nfs.path=/exported/path

    With Kustomize

    Step 1: Get connection information for your NFS server

    Make sure your NFS server is accessible from your Kubernetes cluster and get the information you need to connect to it. At a minimum you will need its hostname and exported share path.

    Step 2: Add the base resource

    Create a kustomization.yaml file in a directory of your choice, and add the deploy directory as a base. This will use the kustomization file within that directory as our base.

    namespace: nfs-provisioner
    bases:
      - github.com/kubernetes-sigs/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner//deploy

    Step 3: Create namespace resource

    Create a file with your namespace resource. The name can be anything as it will get overwritten by the namespace in your kustomization file.

    # namespace.yaml
    apiVersion: v1
    kind: Namespace
    metadata:
      name: nfs-provisioner

    Step 4: Configure deployment

    To configure the deployment, you will need to patch it's container variables with the connection information for your NFS Server.

    # patch_nfs_details.yaml
    apiVersion: apps/v1
    kind: Deployment
    metadata:
      labels:
        app: nfs-client-provisioner
      name: nfs-client-provisioner
    spec:
      template:
        spec:
          containers:
            - name: nfs-client-provisioner
              env:
                - name: NFS_SERVER
                  value: <YOUR_NFS_SERVER_IP>
                - name: NFS_PATH
                  value: <YOUR_NFS_SERVER_SHARE>
          volumes:
            - name: nfs-client-root
              nfs:
                server: <YOUR_NFS_SERVER_IP>
                path: <YOUR_NFS_SERVER_SHARE>

    Replace occurrences of <YOUR_NFS_SERVER_IP> and <YOUR_NFS_SERVER_SHARE> with your connection information.

    Step 5: Add resources and deploy

    Add the namespace resource and patch you created in earlier steps.

    namespace: nfs-provisioner
    bases:
      - github.com/kubernetes-sigs/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner//deploy
    resources:
      - namespace.yaml
    patchesStrategicMerge:
      - patch_nfs_details.yaml

    Deploy (run inside directory with your kustomization file):

    kubectl apply -k .

    Step 6: Finally, test your environment!

    Now we'll test your NFS subdir external provisioner by creating a persistent volume claim and a pod that writes a test file to the volume. This will make sure that the provisioner is provisioning and that the NFS server is reachable and writable.

    Deploy the test resources:

    $ kubectl create -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kubernetes-sigs/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner/master/deploy/test-claim.yaml -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kubernetes-sigs/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner/master/deploy/test-pod.yaml

    Now check your NFS Server for the SUCCESS inside the PVC's directory.

    Delete the test resources:

    $ kubectl delete -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kubernetes-sigs/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner/master/deploy/test-claim.yaml -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kubernetes-sigs/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner/master/deploy/test-pod.yaml

    Now check the PVC's directory has been deleted.

    Step 7: Deploying your own PersistentVolumeClaims

    To deploy your own PVC, make sure that you have the correct storageClassName (by default nfs-client). You can also patch the StorageClass resource to change it, like so:

    # kustomization.yaml
    namespace: nfs-provisioner
    resources:
      - github.com/kubernetes-sigs/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner//deploy
      - namespace.yaml
    patches:
    - target:
        kind: StorageClass
        name: nfs-client
      patch: |-
        - op: replace
          path: /metadata/name
          value: <YOUR-STORAGECLASS-NAME>

    Manually

    Step 1: Get connection information for your NFS server

    Make sure your NFS server is accessible from your Kubernetes cluster and get the information you need to connect to it. At a minimum you will need its hostname.

    Step 2: Get the NFS Subdir External Provisioner files

    To setup the provisioner you will download a set of YAML files, edit them to add your NFS server's connection information and then apply each with the kubectl / oc command.

    Get all of the files in the deploy directory of this repository. These instructions assume that you have cloned the kubernetes-sigs/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner repository and have a bash-shell open in the root directory.

    Step 3: Setup authorization

    If your cluster has RBAC enabled or you are running OpenShift you must authorize the provisioner. If you are in a namespace/project other than "default" edit deploy/rbac.yaml.

    Kubernetes:

    # Set the subject of the RBAC objects to the current namespace where the provisioner is being deployed
    $ NS=$(kubectl config get-contexts|grep -e "^\*" |awk '{print $5}')
    $ NAMESPACE=${NS:-default}
    $ sed -i'' "s/namespace:.*/namespace: $NAMESPACE/g" ./deploy/rbac.yaml ./deploy/deployment.yaml
    $ kubectl create -f deploy/rbac.yaml

    OpenShift:

    On some installations of OpenShift the default admin user does not have cluster-admin permissions. If these commands fail refer to the OpenShift documentation for User and Role Management or contact your OpenShift provider to help you grant the right permissions to your admin user. On OpenShift the service account used to bind volumes does not have the necessary permissions required to use the hostmount-anyuid SCC. See also Role based access to SCC for more information. If these commands fail refer to the OpenShift documentation for User and Role Management or contact your OpenShift provider to help you grant the right permissions to your admin user.

    # Set the subject of the RBAC objects to the current namespace where the provisioner is being deployed
    $ NAMESPACE=`oc project -q`
    $ sed -i'' "s/namespace:.*/namespace: $NAMESPACE/g" ./deploy/rbac.yaml ./deploy/deployment.yaml
    $ oc create -f deploy/rbac.yaml
    $ oc adm policy add-scc-to-user hostmount-anyuid system:serviceaccount:$NAMESPACE:nfs-client-provisioner

    Step 4: Configure the NFS subdir external provisioner

    If you would like to use a custom built nfs-subdir-external-provisioner image, you must edit the provisioner's deployment file to specify the correct location of your nfs-client-provisioner container image.

    Next you must edit the provisioner's deployment file to add connection information for your NFS server. Edit deploy/deployment.yaml and replace the two occurences of with your server's hostname.

    kind: Deployment
    apiVersion: apps/v1
    metadata:
      name: nfs-client-provisioner
    spec:
      replicas: 1
      selector:
        matchLabels:
          app: nfs-client-provisioner
      strategy:
        type: Recreate
      template:
        metadata:
          labels:
            app: nfs-client-provisioner
        spec:
          serviceAccountName: nfs-client-provisioner
          containers:
            - name: nfs-client-provisioner
              image: k8s.gcr.io/sig-storage/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner:v4.0.2
              volumeMounts:
                - name: nfs-client-root
                  mountPath: /persistentvolumes
              env:
                - name: PROVISIONER_NAME
                  value: k8s-sigs.io/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner
                - name: NFS_SERVER
                  value: <YOUR NFS SERVER HOSTNAME>
                - name: NFS_PATH
                  value: /var/nfs
          volumes:
            - name: nfs-client-root
              nfs:
                server: <YOUR NFS SERVER HOSTNAME>
                path: /var/nfs

    Note: If you want to change the PROVISIONER_NAME above from k8s-sigs.io/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner to something else like myorg/nfs-storage, remember to also change the PROVISIONER_NAME in the storage class definition below.

    To disable leader election, define an env variable named ENABLE_LEADER_ELECTION and set its value to false.

    Step 5: Deploying your storage class

    Parameters:

    Name Description Default
    onDelete If it exists and has a delete value, delete the directory, if it exists and has a retain value, save the directory. will be archived with name on the share: archived-<volume.Name>
    archiveOnDelete If it exists and has a false value, delete the directory. if onDelete exists, archiveOnDelete will be ignored. will be archived with name on the share: archived-<volume.Name>
    pathPattern Specifies a template for creating a directory path via PVC metadata's such as labels, annotations, name or namespace. To specify metadata use ${.PVC.<metadata>}. Example: If folder should be named like <pvc-namespace>-<pvc-name>, use ${.PVC.namespace}-${.PVC.name} as pathPattern. n/a

    This is deploy/class.yaml which defines the NFS subdir external provisioner's Kubernetes Storage Class:

    apiVersion: storage.k8s.io/v1
    kind: StorageClass
    metadata:
      name: nfs-client
    provisioner: k8s-sigs.io/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner # or choose another name, must match deployment's env PROVISIONER_NAME'
    parameters:
      pathPattern: "${.PVC.namespace}/${.PVC.annotations.nfs.io/storage-path}" # waits for nfs.io/storage-path annotation, if not specified will accept as empty string.
      onDelete: delete

    Step 6: Finally, test your environment!

    Now we'll test your NFS subdir external provisioner.

    Deploy:

    $ kubectl create -f deploy/test-claim.yaml -f deploy/test-pod.yaml

    Now check your NFS Server for the file SUCCESS.

    kubectl delete -f deploy/test-pod.yaml -f deploy/test-claim.yaml

    Now check the folder has been deleted.

    Step 7: Deploying your own PersistentVolumeClaims

    To deploy your own PVC, make sure that you have the correct storageClassName as indicated by your deploy/class.yaml file.

    For example:

    kind: PersistentVolumeClaim
    apiVersion: v1
    metadata:
      name: test-claim
      annotations:
        nfs.io/storage-path: "test-path" # not required, depending on whether this annotation was shown in the storage class description
    spec:
      storageClassName: nfs-client
      accessModes:
        - ReadWriteMany
      resources:
        requests:
          storage: 1Mi

    Build and publish your own container image

    To build your own custom container image from this repository, you will have to build and push the nfs-subdir-external-provisioner image using the following instructions.

    make build
    make container
    # `nfs-subdir-external-provisioner:latest` will be created.
    # Note: This will build a single-arch image that matches the machine on which container is built.
    # To upload this to your custom registry, say `quay.io/myorg` and arch as amd64, you can use
    # docker tag nfs-subdir-external-provisioner:latest quay.io/myorg/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner-amd64:latest
    # docker push quay.io/myorg/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner-amd64:latest

    Build and publish with GitHub Actions

    In a forked repository you can use GitHub Actions pipeline defined in .github/workflows/release.yml. The pipeline builds Docker images for linux/amd64, linux/arm64, and linux/arm/v7 platforms and publishes them using a multi-arch manifest. The pipeline is triggered when you add a tag like gh-v{major}.{minor}.{patch} to your commit and push it to GitHub. The tag is used for generating Docker image tags: latest, {major}, {major}:{minor}, {major}:{minor}:{patch}.

    The pipeline adds several labels:

    • org.opencontainers.image.title=${{ github.event.repository.name }}
    • org.opencontainers.image.description=${{ github.event.repository.description }}
    • org.opencontainers.image.url=${{ github.event.repository.html_url }}
    • org.opencontainers.image.source=${{ github.event.repository.clone_url }}
    • org.opencontainers.image.created=${{ steps.prep.outputs.created }}
    • org.opencontainers.image.revision=${{ github.sha }}
    • org.opencontainers.image.licenses=${{ github.event.repository.license.spdx_id }}

    Important:

    • The pipeline performs the docker login command using REGISTRY_USERNAME and REGISTRY_TOKEN secrets, which have to be provided.
    • You also need to provide the DOCKER_IMAGE secret specifying your Docker image name, e.g., quay.io/[username]/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner.

    NFS provisioner limitations/pitfalls

    • The provisioned storage is not guaranteed. You may allocate more than the NFS share's total size. The share may also not have enough storage space left to actually accommodate the request.
    • The provisioned storage limit is not enforced. The application can expand to use all the available storage regardless of the provisioned size.
    • Storage resize/expansion operations are not presently supported in any form. You will end up in an error state: Ignoring the PVC: didn't find a plugin capable of expanding the volume; waiting for an external controller to process this PVC.
