Device mapping looks different in Horizon from actual VM

I have created a VM using API and attached couple of cinder volumes to it. The PCI slot to cinder volume mapping that appears from horizon is not matching with what it appears inside the guest (Linux VM).

So for example volume1 is mapped to /vdb and volume2 is mapped to /vdb. Within the guest volume1 is appeared to mapped to vdc.

I am using HP helion and KVM as hypervisor. VirtIO drivers are installed on guest VM.

Thanks, Prithvee.

I guess it's a horizon bug, but coming from helion, you should try to report it to their support team first and see what they say about it.

Hi Mate,

You have made both the attachment as /vdb, there can not be two attachments with the same name to the same VM. So you VM OS is automatically changing it to /vdc.

It is not a bug I suppose.
