I know ceph is meant to operate at scale, that’s why we are all here. 
But if you have a 180 disk cluster, you have 6-9 nodes, is nothing when 
you add a node. I would just do the manual install and especially with a 
production environment, considering all the 'little' bugs surfacing 
here. I doubt if ceph-deploy is even much faster.

...as the recent ceph survey showed, plenty of people have hundreds of 
disks! Ceph is meant to be operated at scale, which is why many admins 
will have automation (ceph-ansible, etc.) in place.

[our test clusters are 180 OSDs...]
