If you mean Ceph as Cinder backend, don't extend the Ceph block device, but use openstack volume set. Before microversion 3.42, that only works when the volume is not attached.

According to the API description, volume extend notifies Nova that the volume has been extended. Manually increasing the size of the Ceph object doesn't update Nova.

Now I have a few problems. The openstack client doesn't allow me to specify microversion 3.42. I guess this is a bug. The cinder client returns with a bogus error message. Also a bug. To extend an attached volume in Rocky, currently, I suppose you have to submit the API manually.

I don't know if and how you can tell Windows to recheck the size of a volume. Also, I am not sure if the hypervisor knows that the volume size has changed.
