Hi all, I attached a volume with device name(/dev/vdb) to a windows 2008 instance successfully.
Then I follow the standard procedures to make the new volume online and format it to disk D.
After using this volume for a while, I detach it without making it offline first.
I could see the status of the volume is available now.
But when I attach the same volume back to the windows instance, it couldn't be attach with the same device name(/dev/vdb).
I try another device name(/dev/vdc) and I could attach the volume back to the windows instance.
However, I could not access this volume in the windows instance anymore.
The status in windows disk management is always undefined.
Does any one know how to make the same volume re-attach to the windows instance working normally?
