Failed to attach volume after detaching

Problem

Failed to attach a volume after detaching the same volume.

Solution

You must change the device name on the nova-attach command. The VM might not clean up
after a nova-detach
command runs. This example shows how the nova-attach command fails when you use the
vdb, vdc, or vdd device
names:

# ls -al /dev/disk/by-path/
total 0
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 200 2012-08-29 17:33 .
drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 100 2012-08-29 17:33 ..
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2012-08-29 17:33 pci-0000:00:04.0-virtio-pci-virtio0 -> ../../vda
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 2012-08-29 17:33 pci-0000:00:04.0-virtio-pci-virtio0-part1 -> ../../vda1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 2012-08-29 17:33 pci-0000:00:04.0-virtio-pci-virtio0-part2 -> ../../vda2

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2012-08-29 17:33 pci-0000:00:06.0-virtio-pci-virtio2 -> ../../vdb
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2012-08-29 17:33 pci-0000:00:08.0-virtio-pci-virtio3 -> ../../vdc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2012-08-29 17:33 pci-0000:00:09.0-virtio-pci-virtio4 -> ../../vdd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 2012-08-29 17:33 pci-0000:00:09.0-virtio-pci-virtio4-part1 -> ../../vdd1

You might also have this problem after attaching and detaching the
same volume from the same VM with the same mount point multiple times.
In this case, restart the KVM host.
