To be more precise on setting up multiple nodes:
If you want to set up the 'storage-plugin' setting for multiple nodes,
you then would have to change 'type' to:
'type': [{'type': 'global'}],

Plugin settings themselves are always node specific. This is then were you
would use 'type' 'node' and where you would set up plugin settings for
that node in the 'plugin' list. And this is then a API call per node.

But as far is I know you just want to set up the 'storage-plugin'
setting and use the default values...

So, 'type' 'global' to set up values for multipel nodes (like
'storage-plugin'). And then per node API calls with 'type' 'node' if you
want to configure the plugin itself.
