When I attempt to create a volume the status is always "error". When i look in the cinder log file, I get many:
2014-06-05 15:38:24.285 33872 INFO cinder.volume.manager [-] Updating volume status
2014-06-05 15:38:24.286 33872 WARNING cinder.volume.manager [-] Unable to update stats, LVMISCSIDriver -2.0.0 driver is uninitialized.

Does the volume group in your cinder configuration match the volume group that was setup on the server:

volume_group = {vg name}

Run vgdisplay, see if it matches.

I ran into this problem last night, I am running RHEL 6.5 and Openstack Havana (I tried Icehouse and it was a nightmare) and solved in the most bizarre way by making the following modifications to my /etc/sudoers file.

################ Defaults    requiretty

once these changes are saved, I restarted openstack-cinder-volume service, right after that I was able to create a volume without any problems.

service openstack-cinder-volume restart

On CentOS 6.5, we experienced the same error. The (roughly the same) sudoers line above was provided by an /etc/sudoers.d/cinder file, so we didn't need to add that. Instead, we had not created the LVM volume group specified the /etc/cinder/cinder.conf. Created and restarted the service, working.

Hi , did you solve this by changing the cinder user in Controller node or on the storage node where cinder-volume is running ?

That didn't change anything.
