When I migrate a VM instance, there will print an ERROR like this :

ERROR (BadRequest): Unacceptable CPU info: CPU doesn't have compatibility.
Refer to (HTTP 400) (Request-ID: req-1843fad8-903d-40f9-afd3-2344354112ec)
the  info of the cpu  is defined in the libvirt.xml file , I change the nova.conf .However it does not work.

Which version of Openstack are you running ?

Juno based on ubuntu , is there a bug with this version?

Per it was fixed in Openstack Kilo 2015.1.
See my answer for suggestions.

Seems like your issue is addressed here
If you are not on Kilo , I would test suggestions #26,#27
If it happens to you on Kilo in nova/virt/libvirt/ there is block

 # Compare CPU
        if not instance.vcpu_model or not instance.vcpu_model.model:
            source_cpu_info = src_compute_info['cpu_info']
            self._compare_cpu(None, source_cpu_info)
            self._compare_cpu(instance.vcpu_model, None)

You can make a copy of and attempt to disable comparison. Actually, this block should work for you.

Did you attempt on Juno or you did something different :-

1) Find lowest common denominator CPU model across all hypervisors using virsh capabilities / virsh cpu-baseline
2) Configure nova-compute.conf to include cpu_mode=custom, cpu_model=Westmere (in my case)
3) Disable the CPU check in nova/virt/libvirt/ (comment out line 4248)
    4246 # Compare CPU
    4247 source_cpu_info = src_compute_info['cpu_info']
    4248 self._compare_cpu(source_cpu_info)

Please , confirm.

I change the , and the error of cpu CPU doesn't have compatibility is missing. however , I still have trouble in migrating a vm . I debug the process of migration and find http 400, it is a bad request. NOW,the vm in lock in the state of migrating.

The ERROR is like this : File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/nova/virt/libvirt/", line 5011, in check_can_live_migrate_destination\n if not instance.vcpu_model or not instance.vcpu_model.model:\n', "AttributeError: 'Instance' object has no attribute 'vcpu_model'\n"]
