Can admin create an instance on a disabled compute node ?

We have just migrated our Cloud from IceHouse to Kilo (going through Juno just for the upgrade) and I am seeing a different behavior wrt disabled hosts.

In IceHouse I was able (only as admin) to create instances also on disabled hosts, using the nova CLI:

nova boot --image ${IMAGE} --flavor ${FLAVOR} --availability-zone nova:${COMPUTE_NODE} --nic net-id=${NET_ID} ${VM_NAME}

Now in Kilo as far as I can see this doesn't work anymore: I am told that no valid host was found.

Is this the expected behavior ? Is it possible in some way to allow admin to "bypass" the disabled flag ?

Thanks, Massimo
