Change Volume Type, but in use


Hi Sean,

Currently:
Ceph RBD pool name = ssdvolumes.
Volume Type name = ssd
Volume Type metadata pointing to backend name ssd
Backend name in Cinder conf = ssd

New situation:
Backend name in Cinder conf will be ssdvolumes, and not ssd anymore.

Since it seems it is not possible to modify a Volume Type when in use by volumes, I do not see other options.

If yes, with cinder API, since the Rocky release [1], you cannot modify volume types that are currently in use. The original design for cinder volume types was that they were always mutable - and changes to existing volume types didn't affect pre-existing volumes. However, this behavior was modified in the Ocata release [2], and finally removed in the Rocky release.
