Hi,

That's definitely the right clue!!  Though I don't fully agree with this
being an os-brick issue just yet.  ;-)

Like I mentioned before, RCA is usually non-trivial, and explaining how
to debug these issues over email is close to impossible, but if this
were my system, and assuming you have tested normal attach/detach
procedure and is working fine, this is what I would do:

- Enable DEBUG logs on Nova compute node (I believe you already have)
- Attach a new device to an instance on that node with --debug to get
  the request id
- Get the connection information dictionary that os-brick receives on
  the call to connect_volume for that request, and the data that
  os-brick returns to Nova on that method call completion.
- Check if the returned data to Nova is a multipathed device or not (in
  'path'), and whether we have the wwn or not (in 'scsi_wwn').  It
  should be a multipath device, and then I would check its status in the
  multipath daemon.
- Now do the live migration (with --debug to get the request id) and see
  what information Nova passes in that request to os-brick's
  disconnect_volume.
  - Is it the same? Then it's likely an os-brick issue, and I can have a
    look at the logs if you put the logs for that os-brick detach
    process in a pastebin [1].
  - Is it different? Then it's either a Nova bug or a Cinder driver
    specific bug.
    - Is there a call from Nova to Cinder, in the migration request, for
      that same volume to initialize_connection passing the source host
      connector info (info from the host that is currently attached)?
      If there is a call, check if the returned data is different from
      the one we used to do the attach, if that's the case then it's a
      Nova and Cinder driver bug that was solved on the Nova side in
      17.0.10 [2].
    - If there's no call to Cinder's initialize_connection, the it's
      most likely a Nova bug. Try to find out if this connection info
      makes any sense for that host (LUN, target, etc.) or if this is
      the one from the destination volume.

I hope this somehow helps.

Cheers,
Gorka.
