Unable to Delete Volume
You cannot delete a bootable volume that is actively in use by a running VM. If you really want to delete such volume then first delete the insance and then you are allowed to delete the detached volume. Before deleting Please make sure during the launch of this insance is using the default selected No for "Delete Volume on Instance Delete" configuration option. If you had set this configuration "Yes" for "Delete Volume on Instance Delete", then deleting the instance will automatically remove the associated volume.
Using the CLI
To run the OpenStack CLI commands, you need to have:
- OpenStack CLI setup, see OpenStack Command Line setup for more information.
To delete a volume using the CLI, do this:
Using the openstack client
The following openstack client command syntax can be used to delete a volume:
openstack volume delete <VOLUME_NAME_OR_ID>
openstack volume delete my-volume
If your volume name
<VOLUME_NAME_OR_ID> include spaces, you need to enclose
them in quotes, i.e.
openstack volume delete "My Volume"
Your volume will now go into state 'deleting' and completely disappear from the
openstack volume list output.
