Bug Description

VIP allocation is restricted to controller node group now in Nailgun.
It should be allowed to allocate VIP in any node group to allow proper separation of HA services into different nodes for 7.0 environments.
But other restriction remains the same: VIP can be allocated only if all nodes which conform to its node_roles section are in the same node group.

VIPs allocation for 7.0 is done in AllocateVIPs70Mixin, methods get_end_point_ip and _assign_vips_for_net_groups . objects.Cluster.get_controllers_node_group is used there as for earlier env versions. It should be changed to the following:
for every VIP:
1. Check that all target nodes (which VIP is allocated for) are in the same node group.
2. If 1 is true then allocate VIP in that node group. It can be any node group in the environment.
    If 1 is false then raise an error that VIP cannot be shared between node groups.

It should be changed in AllocateVIPs70Mixin only (i.e. for 7.0 environments only).

It should be checked differently with and without a template.

The cluster which manages a VIP can be allocated across multiple networks, but you can't allocate a VIP for a separate network from the node IP on that network. This has nothing to do with controllers or node roles, but instead just L3 network segments. I don't think this bug is valid.

Thanks for the input. Still, I can't understand why it's invalid? Let's consider the following situation -

* We have a multi-rack cluster, where

     - "controllers" nodes have management net
     - "standalone-keystone" nodes have management net

* standalone-keystone nodes manage their own management VIP; obviously it has to be allocated in, not in

So currently Nailgun will allocate it in controllers node group (i.e., and it should be fixed in the way to allocate it in

So why it's invalid? It looks valid to me.

    Assign VIPs not only for controllers' node group

    Recently we had an assumption that VIPs could be allocated only for
    controllers, so we used controllers' node group to do allocation.
    That was incorrect assumption, and led to incorrect behaviour for
    envs with standalone-* roles (e.g. standalone-keystone) if it's
    in separate node group.

    So let's use proper node group for VIP allocation based on provided
    node role(s) information. Obviously, all nodes with provided node
    role(s) MUST have the same node group, otherwise the error will be

Won't Fix for 7.0-updates as this is too risky change to be accepted to stable branch
