Whivh tutorial do you mean?

I understand that you launch an instance from an ISO image and get this message when trying to install the ISO.

Did you add another disk? If not, the instance has only a DVDROM and no storage to which it can install Ubuntu.

@Bernd Bausch, You mean flavor?? I already add a flavor when creating instance How can I add another disk ?? I already search a lot on the internet but not succeed.

I don't understand what you are doing. What are your instance launch parameters?

You add a disk by attaching a volume.

Again: What are your instance launch parameters? What image, storage, networking, flavor etc do you use? I still don't understand how you launch the instance.

can you give me your email address i will give you detail with screenshots ..??

It should not be too hard to describe the instance parameters. Image, flavor, volumes (if any).

Do you want to create an image by booting from an installation ISO? See

No. You attach the volume after launching the instance. See the Dreamhost tutorial.

Installing Cinder for Queens:

Yes I know it's my sentence mistake obviously volume attach after launching the instance. Sorry for this actually i am trying to write this i need to configure cinder first

Obviously, I know volumes attach after launching the instance actually I want to write this "I need to configure volume" anyway I got it your point

@Bernd Bausch, now I am configuring cinder-volume, I install LVM but my question is how I can configure LVM in KVM guests because I have a partition with /dev/vda on my KVM guests so can you clear this concept of LVM when configuring in KVM..??

N.R gravatar imageN.R ( 2019-04-26 04:55:56 -0600 )edit

You configure LVM in a KVM guest in the same way as on a physical server. Get yourself a disk (in OpenStack: A volume), pvcreate, vgcreate, lvcreate.

But I am facing error when running this pvcreate /dev/vda1 command it gives me this error

root@storage:~# pvcreate /dev/vda1

Can't open /dev/vda1 exclusively. Mounted filesystem?

My disk partition in object storage node looks like this :

root@storage:~# lsblk


sr0 11:0 1 1024M 0 rom

vda 252:0 0 300G 0 disk

├─vda2 252:2 0 1K 0 part

├─vda5 252:5 0 975M 0 part [SWAP]

└─vda1 252:1 0 299G 0 part /
