[openstack-dev] what code in cinder volume driver supports volume migration between two backends of same type but having different volume types? [cinder]

The case you are trying is supposed to fail.  You have a volume of type
dothill_realstor1 which is defined to say "this volume must be on backend
DotHill_RealStor1".  This is a requirement that you defined for that
volume.  Now you want to migrate it to realstor2, which is a violation of
the requirement that you specified.  To migrate it, you should change the
volume type (retype), which changes the requirement.
