Description Perry Myers 2013-01-13 14:22:30 EST
Add migrate/resize operation support to Horizon
Comment 1 Julie Pichon 2013-01-14 04:44:59 EST
Migrate tracked upstream at:


Merged in grizzly as part of:


There hasn't been any work upstream toward surfacing the Resize option in Horizon yet, though the Migrate patch sets up a good foundation to do so.
Comment 2 Julie Pichon 2013-05-14 07:20:41 EDT
Wouldn't it make sense to break this down into 2 bugs?

- Migrate is available in Grizzly
- Resize hasn't been implemented upstream yet
Comment 3 Perry Myers 2013-05-14 09:14:58 EDT
Yes, let's track migrate testing on this bug (make it TestOnly) and create new bug for Resize
Comment 4 Julie Pichon 2013-05-14 09:50:55 EDT
Ok, filed bug 962818 for tracking resize support in Horizon.

Verified NVR: python-django-horizon-2013.1.1-1.el6ost.noarch

Taking previous comments into account, I verified the migration part only.

1. Login as admin.
2. Launch an instance.
3. Go to Admin panel.
4. Go to instances and find the instance you want to migrate
5. Click More
6. See that the Migrate Instance is listed.
7. Click migrate
8. See that the Host column value was changed to a different host[1] (Shared storage etc..)

[1] Please note that live migration requires host configuration
Comment 6 Julie Pichon 2013-05-27 04:20:48 EDT
Note that the current migration support is for "cold" migration only (as opposed to live migration). It may require "allow_resize_to_same_host" [0] in the Nova config to be set to true in a single-node environment. Thanks for verifying this!
