Hyper-V Fibre Channel support

Registered by Lucian Petrut on 2015-06-10

This blueprint has been superseded. See the newer blueprint "HyperV: use os-brick for volume related operations" for updated plans.

At the moment, the Hyper-V driver supports attaching volumes only via iSCSI or SMB. In many cases, using FC based topologies might be desired.

This blueprint proposes adding Fibre Channel support for the Hyper-V driver.

    [WIP]HyperV: use os-brick for volume related operations

This is now tracked under https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/hyperv-use-os-brick and the patch for that is https://review.openstack.org/#/c/273504/ so I've marked this blueprint as superseded and more or less complete/deferred for Newton. -- mriedem 20160705
