Description Gregory Charot 2017-04-18 19:01:20 UTC
Description of problem:

When updating NovaPassword, the deployment terminates in error.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

OSP11 (Ocata)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change the NovaPassword via parameter_defaults
2. Redeploy
3. Terminates with errors

Actual results:

Notice: /Stage[main]/Nova::Cell_v2::Discover_hosts/Exec[nova-cell_v2-discover_hosts]/returns: OperationalError: (pymysql.err.OperationalError) (1045, u"Access denied for user 'nova'@'' (using password: YES)")

Expected results:
Deployment completes successfully.

Additional info:

The password is updated in nova.conf.
if we do a nova-manage  cell_v2  list_cells --verbose
we can see that the old/original password is still present in the transport URL

database_connection: mysql+pymysql://nova:OLD_PASSWORD@ 

nova-manage first connects to nova_api DB (which works) then retrieves the transport_url (table cell_mappings) and connects again (this time to nova DB) with a transport_url that contains the old password hence the "Access Denied" error.

The password needs to be updated in the DB to reflect the changes eventually with nova-manage cell_v2 update_cell or via an SQL update depending on what is more convenient for you.

These commands solved the issue.

nova-manage cell_v2 update_cell --cell_uuid fecb034b-f1f3-46e4-bf8f-62b2fb867a70 --name default --database_connection 'mysql+pymysql://nova:blablaabla@'

nova-manage cell_v2 update_cell --cell_uuid 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000  --database_connection 'mysql+pymysql://nova:blablaabla@'

I have verified that the password can be updated. The redeploy runs without error until completion and the password change is reflected in the `nova-manage cells_v2 list-cells`.
