Comment 3 David Ripton 2013-02-18 20:20:15 EST
I proposed this patch upstream at https://review.openstack.org/#/c/22278/

If it gets in, great.  If it does not, we can patch downstream.
Comment 4 David Ripton 2013-02-18 22:51:20 EST
This is upstream bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1129748

It may be marked private for now, but it'll probably be made public soon, since this Bugzilla bug is public, as is my review above.
Comment 7 David Ripton 2013-03-04 11:25:06 EST
The upstream patch has been held up because it's failing tests in the devstack-gate.  That's because devstack-gate is running as the stack user, and /opt/stack/data is owned by root.  That's a problem in devstack, which is https://review.openstack.org/#/c/23298/

Comment 15 Xavier Queralt 2013-07-10 06:03:49 EDT
I've updated the upstream bug (https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1129748) with my thoughts about the issue.

In short, the qemu instance runs as user qemu who after the permissions change with dripton's patch cannot access the instances directory.

The solution I propose is to change the ownership and permissions of the instances directory from the nova package so that only qemu and nova users can access it.
