Hi all,

I have multinode setup on openstack+havana+rdo on CentOS6.5

Issue- Can't able to delete cinder volume.

when try to delete through command line

[root at cinder ~(keystone_admin)]# cinder list
|                  ID                  | Status | Display Name | Size |
Volume Type | Bootable |             Attached to              |
| fe0fdad1-2f8a-4cce-a173-797391dbc7ad | in-use |     vol2     |  10  |
None    |   true   | b998107b-e708-42a5-8790-4727fed879a3 |

[root at cinder ~(keystone_admin)]# cinder delete
Delete for volume fe0fdad1-2f8a-4cce-a173-797391dbc7ad failed: Invalid
volume: Volume status must be available or error, but current status is:
in-use (HTTP 400) (Request-ID: req-d9be63f0-476a-4ecd-8655-20491336ee8b)
ERROR: Unable to delete any of the specified volumes.

when try to delete through dashboard, screen shot attached with the mail.

This occured when a cinder volume attached instance is deleted from the
database without detaching the volume. Now the volume is in use and
attached to NONE.

Please find the cinder logs here , http://paste.openstack.org/show/80333/

Any work around to this problem.
