Re: [Cinder] Re: Multiple machines hosting cinder-volumes with Folsom ?
Great to know that you found how to solve your issue.
Thanks for reporting that you found the Grizzly doc confusing.
In fact, the Grizzly release introduced the multi-backend feature. This
feature allows to have more than one backend on a same compute (ie, to be
able to have several cinder-volume running on a same compute). This feature
is not available in Folsom: you can only run one cinder-volume per compute
(in that case, if you want to manage several backends, you have to have
Thanks a lot for your remarks,
