I tried to type the 'vgs' and 'pvs' command under the root user, it just has no response. Can you help me with that? Also when I try to create the volume, it only gives "error" status in open stack dashboard rather than "available"

If the volume is in error status, check the Cinder log files for detailed information.

If you use LVM as a Cinder backend, and the vgs and pvs commands don't respond, it is not surprising that the volume can't be created. You should start by troubleshooting LVM.

What do you mean by "no response" - do you get a prompt back, or does the command hang?

no response in the sense its just gng to the next line without displayng the actual volume present...What is LVM and how do we use that?

If you don’t know what is LVM, you should not manage an OpenStack cloud. LVM is the logical volume manager; the vgs and pvs commands belong to it.
