> Hi All
> I installed openstack kilo on an ubuntu linux-server 14.04 using devstack.
> I installed ubuntu and openstack kilo on a 512GB SSD (sda1). I also have
> 8TB HDD (sdb1) storage connected to the same system.
> Now I want that all my instances that i launch take up space 8TB drive
> when i look on the 8TB drive, but it seems it is using space on my SSD.
> Also here openstack gui shows no sign of that 8TB drive.
> Please help me in understanding  why is it so and what can be configured
> or steps I can follow to get desired goal.

that's what you have going on.
