Subject Questions around Storage: DATADISK showing as allocated/creating
Date Wed, 13 Mar 2013 09:08:10 GMT
Hi All,

Firstly,  please forgive the fancy HTML based signature, it’s a corporate thing assigned
to all emails.. I know how some mailing lists members detest such ☹

I have a question around storage and specifically disks showing as ALLOCATED or CREATING.
We communicate with CloudStack using the RightScale API/UI and occasionally the API call into
CloudStack can time out (we’re working on this to improve communication) and when this happens,
an instance fails to launch/create, but yet allocates data disk..
When I look at my storage offering, I see the following:

Name: data_storage_01-69PS41M1RJV4D            Type: DATADISK               Storage Type:
unknown                VM display name: none     State: Creating


Name: data_storage_01-167MIVU8RIDS8            Type: DATADISK               Storage Type:
shared     VM Display Name: None                State: Allocated

My question is this, if this displays as such, has anything been created on a block level,
ie space assigned/files left around.. Also, how can I clear these up?

Thank you
