Is there any clean way in Openstack Nova to resize a VM into the same compute host?

I have tried setting "allow_resize_to_same_host=True" in controller and compute hosts and restarting all the nova services in both hosts, but still VM is moving to another host. As this option is only for adding the current host into available destination hosts.

I know it can be achievable by creating availability zone with only one host, or by bringing down the compute service in all the compute hosts expect for the host which the VM resides.

But is there any way by configuring some settings in nova conf file?

that is designed behaviour of the feature - so that allow_resize_to_same_host doesn't _force_ the VM to be scheduled on that Compute Host. See discussion in - you can consider implementing code changes proposed in or writing new bug report with suggesting allow/forbid/require, as pointed out by Joe Gordon in review
