The config files


paste.filter_factory = keystoneclient.middleware.auth_token:filter_factory
service_protocol = http
service_host =
service_port = 5000
auth_host =
auth_port = 35357
auth_protocol = http
admin_tenant_name = service
admin_user = cinder
admin_password = service_pass

vi /etc/cinder/cinder.conf

rootwrap_config = /etc/cinder/rootwrap.conf
sql_connection = mysql://cinderUser:cinderPass@
api_paste_confg = /etc/cinder/api-paste.ini
iscsi_helper = ietadm

volume_group = cinder-volumes
verbose = True
auth_strategy = keystone
state_path = /var/lib/cinder
lock_path = /var/lock/cinder
volumes_dir = /var/lib/cinder/volumes

dd if=/dev/zero of=cinder-volumes bs=1 count=0 seek=2G
losetup /dev/loop2 cinder-volumes
fdisk /dev/loop2
#Type in the followings:


pvcreate /dev/loop2
vgcreate cinder-volumes /dev/loop2

sudo vim /etc/init/losetup.conf

start on mounted MOUNTPOINT=/
exec /sbin/losetup /dev/loop0 /var/lib/cinder/cinder-volumes

nano /etc/rc.local

losetup /dev/loop2 /var/lib/cinder/cinder-volumes

NOTE: Sometimes I can see the Cinder creating volume many times it doesn't.

Please let me know what's is going wrong?
