How to install a driver with root privilege when OpenStack services are visible only to stack user

I set up OpenStack using DevStack on Ubuntu 12.04 machine. OpenStack services are visible only from 'stack' user.

When I tried to install some driver (say IBM XIV) from root user, it thrown an error "Cinder, a component of OpenStack is not installed". It is understood that root user cannot see those services. And the installation of that driver says that the user should have root privilege. I grant root privilege to stack user hoping that the install should work, but I am seeing the same error again (cinder not installed) with stack user too.

Any help will be much helpful.

Thanks

Just to clarify the question: is this a problem specific to the IBM driver or also other drivers have the same issue?

I am seeing it with IBM XIV driver. I am not sure about other drivers which needs to be installed separately.

If you are looking for "service cinder-volume" it will not appear because Devstack run screens instead of service. That's the reason, it will not be visible to the driver processes who depends on cinder-volume running as a service. Usually in devstack environment, make changes to the configuration and run "rejoin-stack.sh".

Hope this helps!

So do you mean I should try other modes of OpenStack installation rather than DevStack.?
