The situation is: I have two VMs on a Faulty Compute and I wanted to Move VMs from Faulty compute to another empty compute. I used command openstack server migrate <UUID> to move VM from faulty compute to empty compute. Now VM on faulty is stuck ate resize state on source compute itself. I do I safely remove the resize state of VM and evacuate the host now.

Is the status RESIZE or VERIFY_RESIZE?

If RESIZE, what is the task status?

Old article how you can determine the current stage of a resize or migration. Not sure if still correct.

If the status is RESIZE and doesn't change, I would check the Nova logs on the source and destination, as well as the controller(s).

Hi, Thanks for the response. Source nova logs cannot be checked since it is down. in Destination node I can see UUI of VM with "Updating from migration" logs . but no VMs on destination can be seen.

I did nova reset-state and then evacuated the faulty compute . It worked fine.
