I tried to launch an instance from a volume created with an image. Something went wrong with launching the instance and now on my horizon dashboard under the volumes section my volume is stuck saying the status is "attaching" but never fails or stops. It is completely stuck in that status of "attaching" like it shows in the image below:

It won't let me delete it either.

How can I get it to stop? Is there a way to restart the cinder service? I have deployed with kolla so all services are running in containers.

I figured it out. I went to admin>volumes> and selected ""Update volume status" on the volume that was stuck and selected it to be "error" status instead of attaching. Then it let me delete it.
