Is it possible to use Cinder as the machines drive?

Hello,

We are currently running OpenStack Liberty in a test environment to test out all of the functionality. We have 4 separate servers a controlloler, compute, storage node, and object storage node. One thing I have noticed however is that every VM that is created is using the space in the compute node rather than the storage node. Is it possible to create a VM so that it uses volumes created through Cinder as its drives?

I know that there's an option to attach a volume once the VM is created but i'm curious if there is anything I can do to attach the VM to that volume before creation

I am trying to do all this through the Horizon Dashboard

Thank you!
