A weird thing happened today, I was resizing some instances and it wont proceed, after inspecting the logs, I saw that it was trying to move the instance to a non-existent compute

2017-04-13 08:31:59.789 144207 ERROR oslo_messaging.rpc.dispatcher Command: ssh mkdir -p /var/lib/nova/instances/785e7c09-3bf9-46f2-b052-f7c5e b6c1c98 2017-04-13 08:31:59.789 144207 ERROR oslo_messaging.rpc.dispatcher Exit code: 255 2017-04-13 08:31:59.789 144207 ERROR oslo_messaging.rpc.dispatcher Stdout: u'' 2017-04-13 08:31:59.789 144207 ERROR oslo_messaging.rpc.dispatcher Stderr: u'ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection timed out\r\n'

2017-04-13 08:31:59.789 144207 ERROR oslo_messaging.rpc.dispatcher

That IP does not exist on my network. How did that happened?

Any ideas?

Perhaps Nova has this host in its database even though it doesn't exist (anymore). What do you get when running openstack compute service list?

that list will give me the hostname, which are correct, but nova resize uses IP, I need to know where is it looking for the compute list

A resize cannot be done on the same host.Nova is trying to contact an other host with passwordless authentication for making the resize.

Make sure that all your Nova compute can contact each others with ssh under the nova account.

Check all your /etc/hosts to verify the mapping ip/hostname

I have no problem with resize, i already set nova to connect to all instances without password, my question is actually why is it trying to connect to a non-existent host.

ok so you can check it this ghost ip is stored in the controller database :

1- connect to the msyql engine

2- switch to nova database : use nova;

3- Display all nova IP compute nodes : select host_ip from compute_nodes;
