Revision history [back]

I realize this is an old post, but I came here via Google as I was having similar troubles trying to intentionally launch an instance on a specific hypervisor and getting the 'force_hosts' error. The problem I ran into was that the "host" name can be different than the "hypervisor" name. The nova boot command is looking for the "host" name and not the hypervisor name (or hypervisor id).
