I have deployed an openstack, I have used packstack queens version.

in this moment, openstack is memory low and I have bought HDD.

How is the way to integrate the HDD with the openstack system?

I have tried the vg commands (vgcreate, vgextend, etc.), it does not work.

Can someone help me, please? best regard

The vg commands manage LVM volume groups. They are not aware of OpenStack and don't do anything to add storage to OpenStack.

To add volume back-ends to Cinder, see You probably want the LVM driver.

To add storage to compute nodes that use the KVM hypervisor, see

More details please.

  1. Is your node already using LVM?
  2. What errors are you seeing?
