The openstack was running on one server in my experiment. The VolumeGroup named 'cinder-volumes' was comprised by a local disk partition whose name was '/dev/sda2'.
A volume was created in the dashboard, and I tried to attach it to a running instance. However, the operation was failed.
The exception in nova/compute.log said that the disk bus ide could not be hotplugged.
As known to all, the ide bus cannot be hotplugged to a running instance.
It seems that the current version used the bus type 'ide' as the default one.
In this case, all the volumes created in the 'cinder-volumes' cannot be hotplugged into the running vm. You can never attach a volume to a suspend instance in the dashboard. There is no choice to this in the portal.
How can I choose the type 'virtio' when the volume has been attached?
