I have Havana on Ubuntu12.04 server and 3 hosts (controller,compute and block).I manually install openstack according to the latest install edition(Havana). When I attach a volume to an instance,it reports error.Here is the error log.

nova-compute.log on compute node:

2013-12-07 16:21:20.705 1310 WARNING nova.virt.libvirt.volume [req-434f23c5-c3df-4c22-a972-e650e2734c6e 756f9fb88eff4347ac26c6f6c8bb99ca b3a3f286b9e74effb46a51d90028378f] ISCSI volume not yet found at: vdc.

Then I check the /var/log/syslog on the compute node,it reports :

Dec 7 16:19:21 compute1 iscsid: connect to failed (Connection refused)

Dec 7 16:19:58 iscsid: last message repeated 9 times

I have a question why the iscsid do not connect to the block node,but connect to the I use tgt and open-iscisi.

You will need to add iscsi_ip_address with an address that is reachable from the compute nodes to the cinder.conf on the node running cinder-volume and restart that service. Then newly created cinder volumes should work. But pre-existing volumes will continue to have in their name.

Thanks!It works!Does cinder-volume responsible for updating the cinder volumes status in the cinder database on the controller node?

I'm not sure, I haven't looked into it that much. But cinder-volume does interact directly with the database. I guess it does when long running backend operations complete or fail. But I guess cinder-api also sets the status sometimes.

OK,I understand the cinder mechanism more clearly.I check the 'volumes' table in cinder database,this table has an attibute called ‘provider_location’ and it has a value ',5 1 '.I think these records is written by cinder-volume.
