Update documentation for sharing images

Bug #1819760 reported by Keith Berger

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

The steps on this page


do not take into consideration an image that was created by taking a nova snapshot from a volume backed instance. When this is done the image is actually stored as a snapshot under the source volume. In that scenario, it is also necessary to transfer the cinder volume (and snapshots).


Without transferring the cinder volume (and snapshots), an error is reported about missing volume when an instance is launched from this shared image.

Block Device Mapping is Invalid: failed to get snapshot xxxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxxx. (HTTP 400) (Request-ID: req-xxxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxx)
