I have done all in one installation of openstack using packstack on a machine and everything works fine. But I have a requirement now.

The host machine (on which openstack has been installed) is running out of storage and I, therofore, would like to use the storage of another physical machine connected with a network and assign it as a volume to an instance.

Is there a possibility to mount a NFS filesystem on the host machine and make use of the mounted point to assign a volume to an instance?

Or, please suggest me if there is another way?

Thanks, Rohit
