OpenStack: Creating a Cinder Volume Failed

Solution Unverified - Updated -

Issue

Tried to create a new volume with cinder and it failed, with no indication that it failed from lack of storage space. - The failure didn't show up until I listed information about the volume:

# cinder create --display-name=bigvol 25
...
# cinder list
