Failed to attach a volume after detaching the same volume in OpenStack!

0 votes

Hi everyone,

I detached my volume from my instance due to some reason. Now I am trying to attach the same volume in my instance, but I am not able to do so.

Can anyone tell me about this?

Thank You

Hi@akhtar,

You must change the device name on the nova-attach command. The VM might not clean up after a nova-detach command runs. This example shows how the nova-attach command fails when you use the vdb, vdc, or vdd device names.

# ls -al /dev/disk/by-path/

You might also have this problem after attaching and detaching the same volume from the same VM with the same mount point multiple times. In this case, restart the KVM host.

Thank You
