Provisioning new virtual disk to any guest machine on the OVM server fails

(Doc ID 2232987.1)

Last updated on MAY 17, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.3.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


While currently attached virtual disks to the all guest VM are working fine on the OVM server , creating/attaching any new Virtual disk to any of the Virtua machine fails.

You might see error something like below in  ovs-agent.log



 This can happen in cases of un-clean way/unsuccessful deleting/dettaching virtual disks, leaving stale loop device behind.
