The way that packstack creates the cinder-volums is to create a file in the size that is specified in the answer file and loop it so it'll be visible as a physical volume (see Grizzly manual ). You can use the PV's or create a file and loop it the same way as the manual show.

Personally, I recommend that you'll use the PV's and avoid the loop method, it's not a configuration that should be used for a long term use.
