Bug Description

Example logstash search:

  message:"already exists in volume group" AND filename:"console.html"

I hit it here:

     sudo cinder-rootwrap /etc/cinder/rootwrap.conf lvcreate -n volume-bebcbca0-8bba-4edc-aac3-4c32c6470796 stack-volumes -L 1g
     Logical volume "volume-bebcbca0-8bba-4edc-aac3-4c32c6470796" already exists in volume group "stack-volumes"

Related to this?


    line 255, in update_iscsi_target\n raise exception.ISCSITargetUpdateFailed(name=name)\n', u'ISCSITargetUpdateFailed: An unknown exception occurred.\n'

Somewhat similar signature to bug #1223469 but that's apparently long resolved

Grrr.... we wiped one instance of this out previously.

So what I believe is happening here is that the create is failing for an issue that's not in task-flows blacklist so we retry it, the trouble is that the lvcreate was succesful so the subsequent calls aren't all that smart, they try the whole deal again including the lvcreate an boom... you get this mess.

Yup, that's the end result, however the root cause is bit nastier. I think another related side effect of some refactoring that's been going on around tgt-update.

BTW I just submitted another fix for:
bug #1223469 as it was broken by a refactor change earlier this month.
