Plug-in tips

How will I know if the plug-in is successfully installed?

  1. Go to
  2. At command prompt, enter the following command:
    vi scheduler.log
  3. In the log, search for the following line:
    Received volume service

If the search output has details about enabled_backends that you specified while installing the plug-in, it implies that the plug-in has been successfully installed.

What should I do if I encounter an error while verifying if the installation is successful?

Check the following Cinder logs to find the cause:
  • api.log
  • volume.log
  • scheduler.log


The current release supports only iSCSI protocol. Future releases will support multiple protocols.
