Hello Experts,

I am trying to backup an instance in openstack on cinder volume. Getting below error 

Insufficient cinder quota for instance, Failed to meet minimum 10 percent available quota limit. Available: 8157 GB, Required: 30924 GB, In-Use: 301091 GB (out of 309248)


As you see, my cinder volume is 300 TB of which current free is 8 TB. Commvault is trying to check 10% free space and fails. I know in vmware we can decrease the threshold check, I am unable to find this for openstack virtualization?


I just need to backup a small instance (few GBs) hence if there is a way to reduce threshold for space check please share

Hi @shailu89 , hope all is well!

I was looking for incidents with this error and I saw a case number (211119-522) created by one of your colleagues.

Is this for that same issue?

I’m asking other colleagues if they have additional thoughts and will share if I hear anything.
