@Tripp, Thanks for your reply and info. I am also thinking if it is proper to add support for updating the volume's glance_image_metadta to reflect the "newest status" of volume.
However, there may be alternative ways to achieve it: 1. Using the volume's metatadata 2. Using the volume's admin_metadata So I am wondering which is the most proper method. 2014-05-07 12:32 GMT+08:00 Tripp, Travis S <travis.tr...@hp.com>: > A few days ago I entered a client blueprint on the same topic , but > maybe it has a server side dependency as well? > > When it comes to scheduling, as far as I have been able to tell from > looking at Nova code, the scheduler is only getting volume_image_metadata > and not the regular cinder_metadata.
