openstack-heat: Unable to delete a deployment in progress: "ERROR: Stack overcloud already has an action (CREATE) in progress."
Steps to reproduce:
1. Start an overcloud deployment.
2. While the deployment is in progress atemmpt to delete the overcloud deployment with:
openstack stack delete --yes overcloud
ERROR: Stack overcloud already has an action (CREATE) in progress
The deployment in progress should be deleted. The user/admin shouldn't wait until the running deployment finishes to reinstall.
was able to initiate stack deletion of a stack being created.
This was due to the timeout on the stack stop message being far too low (2s). This will be fixed in OSP9 by bug 1384667, and is already fixed upstream in Newton (OSP10).
In the meantime, you can work around this by setting the config option "engine_life_check_timeout" to a larger value (e.g. 30s).
