I am trying to create volumes from snapshot with a volume type, but my new volume is showing the same volume type which was the volume type of the original volume from which the snapshot was taken. I thought when I create a volume from snap I can give any type, but its not happening? Am I doing something wrong here. Any suggestion on this

That's actually exactly what I expect from a snapshot, it's the volume's status at a given point in time. What you could do is change the volume_type of the newly created volume (from snapshot), that worked for me: cinder retype <VOLUME> <TYPE>
