Using ceph storage from a proxmox ceph setup

I have a ceph cluster setup on 6 proxmox nodes. I also have a separate proxmox node I am using as a client to test some VM's. I would also like to use a basic CentOS7 VM as a ceph client as well but I am having a heck of time getting access from the CentOS7 VM.

Seems pretty straight forward.

[root@linux151 mnt]# echo ",,,, name=admin,secret=AQDiAHhcdZ7VIRAAHEL5UOBH9eMkxcQwJvtQtQ== rbd Test" | tee /sys/bus/rbd/add,,,, name=admin,secret=AQDiAHhcdZ7VIRAAHEL5UOBH9eMkxcQwJvtQtQ== rbd Test
tee: /sys/bus/rbd/add: No such file or directory

/sys/bus/rbd/add does exist and the rbd kernel module is loaded.

[root@linux151 ~]# ls /sys/bus/rbd/
add devices drivers drivers_autoprobe drivers_probe remove supported_features uevent

Even on a proxmox host I hit the same exact issue. Has anyone successfully done what I am trying to do?
