I was making some new ceph pools in the web gui and it doesn't perform validation on the inputs.

As it turns out I used some characters that blew the scripts up.

The entries seem to only exist in the web gui but I can't figure out how to remove them because the web gui wont remove them.

It produces this error:
Method 'DELETE path not implemented (501)
(actual path left out on purpose)


what you get with this command?

ceph osd lspools

and here with this command you can erase it

ceph osd pool delete <poolname>
Awesome, that worked despite the special characters and cleaned up the GUI.


Definitely worth putting on your bug list to put some validation on those input boxes for the forgetful folks like me :)
