Maintenance at Warwick


#1

We will also have to shut down some instances - owners of these will be contacted by email shortly.

Hi,

I have been trying to use the service and since yesterday I have had couple of issues:

  1. I would like use openstack CLI to access my cloud. I have got the RC file (Access and Security > API access) and I sourced it. But when I run any of openstack softwares I get the following error:

Discovering versions from the identity service failed when creating the password plugin. Attempting to determine version from URL.
ERROR (ConnectFailure): Unable to establish connection to https://keystone.warwick.climb.ac.uk/v2.0/tokens: (‘Connection aborted.’, ConnectionResetError(54, 'Connection reset by peer’))

For some reason I cannot establish the connection.

  1. On a similar issue I cannot launch any instances or delete couple of my instances. When I do that I get the following error.

Error: Failed to perform requested operation on instance “compute-1”, the instance has an error status: Please try again later [Error: Build of instance b434d94c-68cf-487a-af73-010b7ce002db aborted: Failure prepping block device.].

Pleas let me know if these issues related to what you have announced? And I should wait for the maintenance to fix it.

Thanks
Nima

I will look into this for you, but please wait for the end of the maintenance.

Please keep an eye on the status page at https://bryn.climb.ac.uk/status - if you are trying to launch instances at Warwick, you can see that there is no remaining capacity to do so.

Many thanks,

I tried to use Birmingham and I can create VMs, as you pointed out the issue of creating the instance caused by the resource capacity.

I also tried to connect to Birmingham openstack using openstack CLI and I am getting similar error as as issue 1:

Discovering versions from the identity service failed when creating the password plugin. Attempting to determine version from URL.
ERROR (ConnectFailure): Unable to establish connection to http://climb-bham-keystone.climb.cluster:5000/v2.0/tokens: HTTPConnectionPool(host=‘climb-bham-keystone.climb.cluster’, port=5000): Max retries exceeded with url: /v2.0/tokens (Caused by NewConnectionError(’<requests.packages.urllib3.connection.HTTPConnection object at 0x103dad3c8>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 8] nodename nor servname provided, or not known’,))

Thanks
