Hi All,

At present cinder driver can be only configured with adding entries in conf file. Once these driver related entries are modified or added in conf file, we need to restart cinder-volume service to validate the conf entries and create a child process that runs in background.

I am thinking of a way to re-initialize or dynamically configure cinder driver. So that I can accept the configuration from user on fly and perform operations. I think solution lies somewhere around "oslo.config.cfg", but I am still unclear about how re-initializing can be achieved.

Let know if anyone here is aware of any approach to re-initialize or dynamically configure a driver.
