Does anybody has experience with attaching volume to Windows2012 in OpenStack (Grizzly)? I am trying to connect as device /dev/vdc, but everytime the running Win instance is hard rebooted. How to connect volume without reboot?

We have deployed openstack in two nodes: CP-node, ctl-node (with networking). Operating systems is Ubuntu 12.04, in both machines.

Please provide more information about your environment, e.g. hypervisor, running services, list of commands executed, and possibly even logs. That helps us to give you a more detailed answer.
