2015-08-31 04:07:58 -0500 answered a question heat boot from volume

It looks like the instance is getting spawned even before the volume is getting created succesfully. The "depends_on" attribute doesn't seem to have any effect.

Thanks for that Eduardo. But it looks like "bootable" is not recognized as a property. Its an attribute. So, adding the property : bootable : true gives me an error saying that this is not a valid property.

I do not want to use a glance image as a source for this volume.

HEAT template allows use to create a Cinder volume. However, I cannot mark it as "bootable" using the template. There is a command line : cinder set-bootable <volume-id> True However, I want to do the same using the HOT template. Anyone knows how to do this ?

2015-06-10 05:25:07 -0500 asked a question What happens internally when a bootable volume is created ? Is a glance image copied to cinder ?

I understand that when we boot an instance from a glance image, a copy of a base-image is created on Nova. Does the same happen when we create a bootable volume from a glance image ? Is a copy of the image created on cinder as well ?

How can I be more efficient by not creating a copy of the image and using the image as it is ? In other words, I do not want to make a copy of the image in any way.

Can I directly boot from the image without making a copy ?

I have ready made image files located on my NFS server, which i do not want to upload to glance. How do I boot from these images without using glance ?

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Hi Ronak,

I am facing a similar situation. I have ready made backed-up images from my customer's which are stored on NFS. I need glance to recognize these without uploading them to glance. Is this possible ? If not, can I skip glance, and use these NFS images directly to boot from a volume ?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

THanks, Manoj
