Hi,

I am testing cinder, if it works, i created successfully a volume, and i succesfully attached it to my VM in '/dev/vdc', but when i am trying to mount it i have mount: special device /dev/vdc does not exist

I checked my nova-compute logs and i have found the following: 2013-07-04 11:18:54.578 WARNING nova.virt.libvirt.utils [req-a39810b7-9cd2-4c64-9160-92af7500726a 84fd95557d5549c5b91acb1e97d4462d 4b561ee6854e4ad38446744b0ea51d03] systool is not installed 2013-07-04 11:18:54.618 WARNING nova.virt.libvirt.utils [req-a39810b7-9cd2-4c64-9160-92af7500726a 84fd95557d5549c5b91acb1e97d4462d 4b561ee6854e4ad38446744b0ea51d03] systool is not installed 2013-07-04 11:18:55.806 WARNING nova.virt.libvirt.volume [req-a39810b7-9cd2-4c64-9160-92af7500726a 84fd95557d5549c5b91acb1e97d4462d 4b561ee6854e4ad38446744b0ea51d03] ISCSI volume not yet found at: vdc.

I installed the sysfsutils it seemed to be missed, but now when i'm mouting it it always tell me mount: you must specify the filesystem type

I tried all the possibilies with mount -t: auto - this is a special one. It will try to guess the fs type when you use this. ext4 - this is probably the most common Linux fs type of the last few years ext3 - this is the most common Linux fs type from a couple years back ntfs - this is the most common Windows fs type or larger external hard drives vfat - this is the most common fs type used for smaller external hard drives

But I always do not get to mount it
