I'm trying to filter the servers list by metadata value that is already set to all running instances. this is all servers :

[<server: admin="">, <server: t3="">, <server: t2="">] and all of them have these meta values [{u'dr': u'0'}, {u'dr': u'1'}, {u'dr': u'1'}]

is it possible to filter if 'dr' = 1 only I've tried to send search_opts to list() function like this:

        search_opts = {'dr':'1'}
        new_list = obj.nova.servers.list(search_opts)
        print new_list

but it gives me all servers it should return <server: t3="">, <server: t2=""> only.

python-novaclient list()

Hi Ahmed,

Probably you've already solved the issue by yourself, since the post is quite old, but just in case:

The correct API call would be:

new_list = obj.nova.servers.list(search_opts = search_opts)
