How to create new availability zone in cinder? There is no info in the mans.

I have already created a few availability zones in nova, but can't understand how to do the same in cinder.

Thank you in advance.

There is needed to add "storage_availability_zone=new-zone-name" to cinder configuration file (/etc/cinder/cinder.conf) and restart cinder-volume service. Steps to implement changes: 1) echo "storage_availability_zone=new-zone-name" >> /etc/cinder/cinder.conf on each of control nodes; 2) service cinder-volume restart on each of control nodes; To check, were the changes implemented successfully there is needed to run cinder availability-zone-list from workstation with a cinder client.

Document which may be relevant (for OpenStack Juno): . It works for me in Juno release. By the way, you may also need to check that storage_availability_zone=new-zone-name is located in the section of [DEFAULT].
