A Bare Metal instance created using oci kvm image 1.5. A block volume has been attached and a storage pool created. Several other block volumes have now also been added. When the instance was rebooted the original disk was not allocated to the /dev/sdb1 device but to /dev/sdj1 instead. To try to make this persistent the command ' virsh pool-edit vmstore' was run to edit the device path to use a UUID instead. When the server was rebooted the reverted to /dev/sdb1. the block volume used as pool is not persistent across reboots.
