nova delete doesn't work with EFI booted VMs
Status in OpenStack Compute (nova):
Status in nova package in Ubuntu:
I've been setting up a Mitaka Openstack using the cloud archive
running on Trusty, and am having problems working with EFI enabled
instances on ARM64.
I've done some work with wgrant and gotten things to a stage where I
can boot instances, using the aavmf images.
However, when I tried to delete a VM booted like this, I get an error:
libvirtError: Requested operation is not valid: cannot delete
inactive domain with nvram
I've included the full traceback at
Thanks to a suggestion from wgrant again, I got it working by editing nova/virt/libvirt/guest.py in delete_configuration() and replacing self._domain.undefineFlags(libvirt.VIR_DOMAIN_UNDEFINE_MANAGED_SAVE) with self._domain.undefineFlags(libvirt.VIR_DOMAIN_UNDEFINE_MANAGED_SAVE | libvirt.VIR_DOMAIN_UNDEFINE_NVRAM).
I've attached a rough patch.
Once that's applied and nova-compute restarted, I was able to delete
the instance fine.
Could someone please investigate this and see if its the correct fix,
and look at getting it fixed in the archive?
This was done on a updated trusty deployment using the cloud-archives
$ dpkg-query -W python-nova
Please let me know if you need any further information.
