Can you change volume type on a volume containing an instance - seems to get stuck in my case?

DevStack Kilo - I have multiple block storage backends configured and working. I can change volume type on an empty volume (move from 1 backend to the other), however if I have an instance on a volume the process never completes I see under the dashboard status - retyping and attaching. I confirm the volume is moved to the new backend but no data is on it. Not a lot in the log files to tell me whats going on

why not snapshot the volume and create a new volume from snapshot with the proper type?

I could however I'm trying to find out if changing the volume type containing an instance is supported, the option to do so is there. Thanks
