Hi all, I'm having issue on debian based openstack install, for live-migrations with block migrate. Exact same setup with nfs shared storage, live-migration works OK.

Eveything used to work like a charm, but now I get this error in the logs : "Returning exception can only parse strings" on the destination host ;seems to be broken since update to nova v 2014.1.2-7~bpo70+1. Anybody has had the same issue ?

Log extract says :

I am also seeing this. Same setup as well.
