I've installed a new OpenStack single host but I'm having some troubles on Cinder module. I'm getting the following warning message, so any instance using a big volume fails when launching.
2018-02-28 17:30:33.463 12381 WARNING cinder.scheduler.filters.capacity_filter [req-bc96b3c4-820d-4851-8d54-800971a61ce6 2097652168834963b3374aa5edcd8a1d 35d9b1a4b0ee493c8935a5ca09247dc0 - default default] Insufficient free space for thin provisioning. The ratio of provisioned capacity over total capacity 1.02 has exceeded the maximum over subscription ratio 1.00
I think that the solution should be to change the maximum over subscription value, however when I change the cinder.conf file, the OpenStack loose the connectivity with Cinder module.
We normally just answer questions for OpenStack around NetApp products, but
Its all in the cinder.conf file. You need to make sure your lvm_type flag is set to thin or you can't oversubscribe at all. Then just update your max_over_subscription_ration to 2.0 or 3.0 save and restart all cinder services.
