Is is possible for custom device names configured through Horizon to be used within guest instances?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


Is is possible within Red Hat OpenStack Platform for custom device names which are configured through the Horizon dashboard, to be used within guest instances? I.E. for a device to be named in horizon (e.g. /dev/abc) and then for that device name to be used within the guest instance itself (as seen within the output of df for example).
