Create multiattach volume:

$ cinder type-create multiattach

$ cinder type-key multiattach set multiattach="<is> True"

$ cinder create <volume_size> --name <volume_name> --volume-type <volume_type_uuid>

When attaching volume to VM, error log is printed: ERROR oslo_messaging.rpc.server MultiattachNotSupportedByVirtDriver: Volume 5189e65a-6573-4823-9061-2e9bd08df272 has 'multiattach' set, which is not supported for this instance.

MultiattachNotSupportedByVirtDriverindicates that the compute node hosting the instance doesn't support multiattach volumes. Multiattach is supported by libvirt, starting with Queens (https://specs.openstack.org/openstack...).

You also need to specify Nova microversion 2.60 when attaching (see http://git.openstack.org/cgit/opensta...).

I'm new to openstack. Could you tell me how to check if Nova microversion 2.60 already exists? If not, how to upgrade?

It exists in Queens. You have to explicitly request it with the openstack client’s command line option --os-compute-api-version 2.60, or by setting the environment variable OS_COMPUTE_API_VERSION to 2.60. If you think this should be better documented, I agree.

I installed openstack on one single VM with packstack.

rpm -qa | grep nova


It's not Queen? the latest openstack version?
