No Blocked Device Mapping Required for Launch: Only use this option if OpenStack is configured along with a third-party infrastructure that is not visible to the CloudCenter platform – if your native OpenStack configuration does not support the Create Servers OpenStack API (with bootable volume mapping).
To complete the cloud configuration, you must register the CCO with the CCM.Register the CCO with the CCM
