Is that possible to update the "add-or-rm-osds" documentation to have also the process with ceph-volume. That would help to the adoption.


This page should be updated as well with ceph-volume command.


Documentation (at least for master, maybe for luminous) should keep both options (ceph-disk and ceph-volume) but with a warning message to
encourage people to use ceph-volume instead of ceph-disk.

I agree with comments here that say changing the status of ceph-disk as deprecated in a minor release is not what I expect for a stable storage
systems but I also understand the necessity to move forward with ceph-volume (and bluestore). I think keeping ceph-disk in mimic is necessary,
even though there is no update, just for compatibility with old scripts.
