I made a mistake by using the same glance images as both deploy & user images. I fixed this by extracting kernel & initrd images from user image and uploading with glance. Boot provision worked fine :)

I've had a similar problem and the way I fixed it was:

  • Turned off the ironic-conductor service (e.g. 'service ironic-conductor stop' on the ironic conductor node)
  • Logged on via IPMI to the actual node and turned the power off
  • Did a reset of the state in nova to active ( (link))
  • Restarted the ironic-conductor service

The ironic conductor appeared to learn the state of the node and updated everything accordingly.

I didn't have exactly the same problem as you but hopefully this can help.
