Description Perry Myers 2013-01-13 19:22:30 UTC
Add migrate/resize operation support to Horizon

Comment 1 Julie Pichon 2013-01-14 09:44:59 UTC
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 11:20:41 UTC
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 13:14:58 UTC
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 13:50:55 UTC
Ok, filed bug 962818 for tracking resize support in Horizon.

Comment 5 Nir Magnezi 2013-05-26 07:48:49 UTC
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 08:20:48 UTC
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!
