Block storage thin oversubscription is not working

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • According to the news, it seems cinder block storage thin pool oversubscription is supported.
  • But for EMC VNX and VMAX storage storage backend, if we try to create a thin LUN in a pool that will exceed the underlying thin pool size, it will fail.

  • cinder scheduler.log will report:
