I have a problem booting an instance from an ISO image. This works well in our folsom cloud, but its not working on out havana cloud. I have an ISO image uploaded and try to create an instance from it. Images are store on an rbd volume. the instance hangs with

Boot failed: could not read the boot disk

I traced the problem down to the content of the libvirt.xml file. The problem seems to be the following config setting:

<disk type="network" device="disk">

If I create an instance from the same libvirt.xml file and just change the "disk" to "cdrom" the instance is booting. Maybe this has to do with the fact that our images are on rbd?

Any advice is appreciated ...
