[openstack-dev] [Cinder][3rd CI] Confused about “*real* storage backend”requirement for 3rd CI.

It still can not work. 

My local.conf is:


And the resulted cinder.conf is:

default_volume_type = default
enabled_backends = default
volume_group = stack-volumes-default
volume_driver = cinder.volume.drivers.lvm.LVMISCSIDriver
volume_backend_name = default

Looks like it did not work as I expected. Is there anything I am wrong?

Thanks and regards,

Just want to clarify that you don't have to make any changes in upstream devstack to configure devstack to use your volume driver. Information for configuring Devstack to use your driver as mentioned earlier can be found here:
