Live migration error in Kilo

Hello Guys !
I am using the netapp cinder nfs drive in kilo release, when a try execute the live migrate I receive the error:

 

"f3d3e2ac4e420fb3951984998c3f66 3336ff9d2c464d78b39d8458af37c866 - - -] [instance: 02c278ba-b79a-49bb-bfd0-b5e7c5667679] Live Migration failure: Unsafe migration: Migration may lead to data corruption if disks use cache != none"

 

Whats the problem ? 

 

All the best ! 

Re: Live migration error in Kilo

Hi Rodrigo,

 

Are you certain that /var/lib/nova/instances is hosted on a shared file system like NFS or Gluster?  In most distributions by default this is hosted on local storage and won't work for live migrations.

 

See here if you're using RHEL-OSP7 (Kilo):

https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en/red-hat-enterprise-linux-openstack-platform/version-7/migrating-instances/

 

Upstream documentation:

http://docs.openstack.org/admin-guide-cloud/compute-configuring-migrations.html

Re: Live migration error in Kilo

Hello dcain ! 

 

Exactly, the /var/lib/nova/instance are on local disks on each computer node.

At this time I have 3 computer nodes, I will try create a new NFS share and mount the same NFS share for all nodes.

 

I will post in result here in few days.

 

Thank you for anwser.

Hello, dcain ! 

 

I change the /var/lib/nova/instances in all computer nodes but a I have the same problem.

Re: Live migration error in Kilo

How are the permissions setup on the "10.250.3.253:/vol/openstack_inst" directory?  Should be 0744 owned by nova:nova if memory serves me.  If this is a distribution with Selinux configured, are the approiate allowences setup?  

 

How about debug logs for the nova-scheduler and associated nova-compute logs on the two hosts in question?  Any insight there?

Hello dcain !

 

We are here again ;-)

 

The permissions are correct:

If I add the VIR_MIGRATE_UNSAFE flag in nova.conf I can execute live migrate but I am NOT Insurance about this option.

live_migration_flag=VIR_MIGRATE_UNDEFINE_SOURCE,VIR_MIGRATE_PEER2PEER,VIR_MIGRATE_LIVE,VIR_MIGRATE_PERSIST_DEST
