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?

[root at localhost nova]# nova --version

[root at localhost nova]#

Thank you.
