Hi @all,

I edited as suggested, hope this time I am clearer, thanks for all answers and suggestions regarding this. I'm a newbie in Openstack world and I'd like to apologize if this was asked before so i ask you to please bear with me on this one.

I've installed Openstack using packstack on a single node with the following specs

CentOS 7 minimal 16 GiB RAM Core i5 CPU 1 SSD (LVM OS) 2 1TB HDDs in RAID1 array (LVM PV empty, for storage)

I've read the nova and glance files namely "filesystem_store_datadir" for image and instance storage paths.

I want to use the 900+ GiB for image and instance storage, after I changed these parameters and rebooted the instances won't start.

I ended up uninstalling everything with the remove script from RedHat docs, then I editing the packstack-answers file like this:

CONFIG_CINDER_VOLUMES_CREATE=y (not sure if use this one or not)
CONFIG_CINDER_VOLUMES_SIZE=440G (UI wnat to dedicate 400G to images and 400G to instances' volumes)
CONFIG_SWIFT_STORAGES=/dev/md125 (my RAID1 900GiB volume)

After running packstack with these settings everything went OK and I now have these mount points

After I change dthe paths on the files, bin-mounted the dis everything just breaks, does anyone know of some "storage tutorial" or"openstack with LVM"?. I'm about to give up. TIA.
