Anyway to terminate instances stuck in REBUILD or RESIZE state?

Running a set of functional tests in Tempest, I ended up with two stuck server instances -- one in REBUILD and one in RESIZE status. Attempting to terminate them via Horizon results in an error saying I cannot terminate an instance in REBUILD or RESIZE status. How can I remove these server instances?

Thanks, -jay

I had the same problem but am not sure how to do this reset. I looked at /var/lib/nova/nova.sqlite with a sql browser but did not see much in there. Is this the right database? Is there an easy way to set the vm_state?

If a rebuild or resize failed and it didn't move it to ERROR, then that's a bug. If you can, please open up bugs, hopefully with tracebacks.

To delete these, you will need to set the vm_state of the instance to ERROR in the database.

Got it. Thanks, Johannes! I'll file bugs when I can repeat the problem.

Cheers! -jay
