Test PowerStore CSI Driver

In the repository, a simple test manifest exists that creates three different PersistentVolumeClaims using default ext4, xfs, and nfs storage classes and automatically mounts them to the pod.

It assumes that you’ve created the same basic three storage classes from samples/storageclass folder without changing their names. If you’ve created different storage classes please edit tests/simple/simple.yaml and change PersistentVolumeClaim definitions to point to correct storage classes.


  1. To run this test, run the kubectl command from the root directory of the repository:
    kubectl create -f ./tests/simple/

You can find all the created resources in testpowerstore namespace.

  1. Check if the pod is created and Ready and Running by running:

    kubectl get all -n testpowerstore

    If it’s in CrashLoopback state then the driver installation wasn’t successful. Check the logs of the node and the controller.

  2. Go into the created container and verify that everything is mounted correctly.

  3. After verifying, you can uninstall the testing PVCs and StatefulSet.

    kubectl delete -f ./tests/simple/
