I have a RDO allinone instance running. I asked my SAN administrator for 200 gb of additional space. He gave me some LUNS --- How do I add this space to my cinder configuration? Can cinder talk directly to raw LUNS, if so - can someone give me the configuration options? Do I have to create additional LVM entries, if so, how?

Cinder can work directly with some SAN vendors, but it must first be configured to do so. For reference, see the list of volume drivers currently supported at the following link: If you're using the LVM driver, then you can configure Cinder for multiple-storage backends as described in the following link:

Good luck!
