# Revision history [back]

I have verified my configuration as well as tested changing my default backend to a different type of volume backend. This all works perfectly well.

You should be able to add the default_volume_type and specify the type you wish

rpc_backend=cinder.openstack.common.rpc.impl_kombu

default_volume_type=volumes-hdd

[volumes-hdd]
rbd_pool=volumes-regular


The above change (and restarting of the correct services) should be all you need. Please also check the cinder logs for anything out of the ordinary.
