when running rally -v task start boot-and-delete.json, the task always fails and each iteration reports the following message:

ITER: 0 END: Error <class 'rally.exceptions.GetResourceErrorStatus'>: Resouce <Server: rally_novaserver_oqxmhtbpzzjwwfpo> has ERROR status: NoValidHost

I have checked that there are enough available resources(vCPU, RAM etc) in compute nodes. Boot and delete operations on Dashboard work okay.

I have also checked nova.conf file, rabbitmq configuration is correct. and here is scheduler setting:

##### SCHEDULER #####


Wonder how to fix this NoValidHost problem, can anybody give some advice? Thanks in advance!

So "Rally" uses the plain "python clients" so NoValidHost means that for some reason it didn't find proper host.

It can be cause of next rearons:

1) Flavor is to big

2) No available network

Keep in mind that Rally creates users/tenants that actually creates VM. So as a first step I'll try to create by hand tenant and user and try to boot from him some VM

Hi, I'm runing the same scenario boot-and-delete.json And I get issues here the error :

Error GetResourceErrorStatus: Resource <server: rally_novaserver_rxtwsldpcokoowoq=""> has ERROR status:

I create another very tiny flavor enough to create as many VMs as I want. I tried manually and I succeeded
