Incorrect available space being reported by cinder scheduler

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • I have successfully deployed a Highly Available (HA) OpenStack cloud using the RHEL OSP Installer (rhel-osp-installer-0.5.5-5.el7ost.noarch). Our cloud configuration consists of three controller nodes and two compute nodes. I am using the default Neutron Networking, RabbitMQ, RHEL OSP6 on RHEL7 deployment option.

  • Cinder is configured to use the NetApp driver backend with NFS. Storage Family selected is Clustered Data ONTAP.

Controller node:

  • Note the cinder NFS share 'xx.xx.xx.xx:/nfs_openstack_cinder_dev_vol01' is reporting 68 GB available. I am launching an instance and it fails to launch with the following message in /var/log/cinder/scheduler.log:
