when command in:

$nova list

we get three states: | Status | Task State | Power State |

but the vm state is not shown in here.

Not sure how the value 'Status' here maps to the vm status.

Any idea?

Thank you!

hello,

status here means the current status of your VM, after launching it properly the status turn to ACTIVE which means it is ready to use.

if you turnoff the VM the status goes to SHUTOFF. if some issues occur then status turn to ERROR.

is it what you required? Or you pointing towards something els.

Thanks for your response. My question is: how to map the vm states into the status shown in nova list?(esp. for SHUTOFF) There are vm states like PAUSED, SUSPENDED, STOPPED, BUILDING..(http://docs.openstack.org/developer/nova/devref/vmstates.html) How do we map them into the status?
