Has anyone tried migration of huge VMs [with 100 GBs of boot from volume instances] from a Kilo to Mitaka setup. It is from one setup to another.

I have doubt in following scenario.

Does a db migration from Kilo and Mitaka is supported [with all metadata intact]. If i do a volume based migration from backend [3par to VSA OR 3PAR to 3PAR], how to makemy new cloud [which is already installed] aware about the volumes.

Any pointer's would be helpful.

I believe you want the cinder manage command. It allows creating a LUN, then adding it to Cinder as a volume. There seems to be an equivalent openstack command volume create –-remote-source, but I don't see it documented anywhere.
