[nova] running nova-scheduler in a container
Youâ??re right, the issue isnâ??t the scheduler after all. I wasnâ??t fully aware of how the scheduler and conductor work with each other. From the logs, I can see that it does pick a compute node as selected host:
2020-06-05 17:50:54.742 520 DEBUG nova.conductor.manager [req-323fe2d5-4ab5-4d3f-a923-deb7ce9da9f9 0ec0114b913646338f16f1ce6457da3a e9dd8de2dad64f3c99078f26330aefb9 - default default] [instance: e1d20902-660e-4359-bb56-2482734b656f] Selected host: compute2.staging.planethoster.net; Selected node: compute2.staging.planethoster.net; Alternates: [(u'compute3.staging.planethoster.net', u'compute3.staging.planethoster.net'), (u'compute1.staging.planethoster.net', u'compute1.staging.planethoster.net')] schedule_and_build_instances /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/nova/conductor/manager.py:1371
It then proceed to block device mapping :
2020-06-05 17:50:54.750 520 DEBUG nova.conductor.manager [req-323fe2d5-4ab5-4d3f-a923-deb7ce9da9f9 0ec0114b913646338f16f1ce6457da3a e9dd8de2dad64f3c99078f26330aefb9 - default default] [instance: e1d20902-660e-4359-bb56-2482734b656f] block_device_mapping [BlockDeviceMapping(attachment_id=<?>,boot_index=0,connection_info=None,created_at=<?>,delete_on_termination=False,deleted=<?>,deleted_at=<?>,destination_type='volume',device_name=None,device_type=None,disk_bus=None,guest_format=None,id=<?>,image_id='364b1fe6-6025-4ca5-8d7d-76fbd71074cb',instance=<?>,instance_uuid=<?>,no_device=False,snapshot_id=None,source_type='image',tag=None,updated_at=<?>,uuid=<?>,volume_id=None,volume_size=20)] _create_block_device_mapping /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/nova/conductor/manager.py:1169
However, the status of the VM in the database stays at scheduling and the conductor doesnâ??t do anything else, as if it was waiting for something that never comes. So, would that mean that the scheduler and placement actually do their job, but the process gets stuck in cinder?
I was under the impression this was a nova issue, because if I shutdown my containers with the nova services and boot the same nova services with same configuration locally, I have no issue whatsoever.
