[pve-devel] [PATCH storage v3 0/4] pbs: fix #5008: Prevent adding pbs storage with invalid namespace

Currently, when adding a PBS storage with a namespace that does not
exist, the storage gets added normally, but browsing/using it only
returns a cryptic error message.

This change checks if the namespace entered when adding is valid and
prompts an error if it is not. If no namespace is provided, the storage
will be added without error.

This is done by adding code to check if the namespace exists and call it
as well as existing code to check if a datastore exists on the add and
update hooks of the PBS datastore.

Changes since v2:
 * Typos
 * reuse connecton on one more place previously fortotten
 * simplify syntax

Changes since v1:
 * do not add any overhead to activate_storage calls
 * splits code from activate_storage so parts of it can be reused
 * adds new methods to check namespaces
 * calls checks on add/update hooks

Philipp Hufnagl (4):
  pbs: Move pbs_api_connect earlyer in the code
  pbs: Make it possible to reuse PBS connection for datastore API call
  pbs: Extraxt check_datastore_exists from activate_storage
  pbs: fix #5008: Check if datastore and namespace is valid on add- and
    update hooks
