openstack-nova: the creation of instance with a used bootable volume should fail
Last modified: 2013-10-17 17:00:19 EDT
Description of problem:
related to the bug 1020501 , if more than one instance is created with the same bootable volume the creation procedure should fail and the instance should even be created with an error in the nova list
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This is expected behavior. Server creation is an async operation. As long as the input passes initial sanity checks, there are a bunch of ways that it may fail and result in being put in an ERROR state. Even if we did do this check on the API side, it wouldn't catch all cases. There is a bit of a race condition here if two such requests came in at the same time.
