Hi,

Increase the block device mapping the time out value in nova-compute.conf file. If the size of the volume/image is too large, It will take time to copy. If the timeout value exceeds it will result in failure.

Refer nova.conf reference

block_device_allocate_retries = 60 (default) to 300

block_device_allocate_retries_interval = 3(default) to 10

block_device_creation_timeout = 10(default) to 300

Best Regards,
