Hi i am running Openstack on Ubuntu 16.04 with cloud-archive ppa enabled. After upgrading from ocata to pike i get the following error when try an "openstack server list"

This service is older (v15) than the minimum (v22) version of the rest of the deployment. Unable to continue. (HTTP 400) (Request-ID: req-b74ffd6b-0fad-40cc-8fe6-160760518869)

Any suggestions how I can track this error?

after reinstalling the whole server, using directly pike repo and reimporting the database the error remains the same

did you upgraded your database to the latest version ?

yes i did. and i think i have upgraded all (sorry i am new to openstack so there is big possibility i oversee some) when it comes to nova i did nova-manage db sync and nova-manage api_db sync

is there a way to check all the databases about the current version they have?

Same problem here:

This service is older (v9) than the minimum (v22) version of the rest of the deployment. Unable to continue. (HTTP 400)

I will be very glad to have a solution for that.

Thank you.


I had non-used hosts in my "services" table ("nova" database) that had old versions. Deleting these entries solved my problem:

mysql -uroot -p

USE nova;

DELETE FROM services WHERE version = '9';

Hello GMichaud, what documentation did you follow to update Ocata? Thank you in advance.

The trick helped. We also experienced this when we upgraded to Rocky. From openstack compute services list, you won't see any version issue. Have to look into db table ''.
