The most frequent problem I see from customers is 'I have configured Cinder but my volumes just go to 'ERROR' state. Why?' There are a number of common pitfalls that storage administrators who are new to Cinder may encounter. The source of the problem may not be easily determined by new users, but with a bit of guidance most problems are easily resolved. This presentation will help guide new, and existing, users to smooth attainment of an 'available' volume on new storage back-ends whether it be on a new system or an additional storage system being added via Cinder's multi-backend support.
