Bug Description


First of all, thanks a lot for working on Nova!

The StorPool third-party Cinder CI has been failing on every test run today with the same problem: the test_boot_server_from_encrypted_volume_luks Tempest test fails when trying to detach a volume with an exception in the nova-compute service log: "Failed to detach volume 645fd643-89fc-4b3d-9ea5-59c764fc39a2 from /dev/vdb: AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'format_dom'"

An example stack trace may be seen at:
- nova-compute log: http://logs.ci-openstack.storpool.com/18/539318/1/check/dsvm-tempest-storpool/c3daf58/logs/screen-n-cpu.txt.gz#_Jan_31_18_07_27_971552
- console log (with the list of tests run): http://logs.ci-openstack.storpool.com/18/539318/1/check/dsvm-tempest-storpool/c3daf58/console.html

Actually, start from http://logs.ci-openstack.storpool.com/ - any of the recent five or six failures can be traced back to this problem.

Of course, it is completely possible that the (recently merged) StorPool Nova volume attachment driver or the (also recently merged) StorPool os-brick connector is at fault; if there are any configuration fields or method parameters that we should be preserving, passing through, or handling in some other way, please let us know and we will modify our drivers. Also, our CI system is available for testing any suggested patches or workarounds.

Thanks in advance for looking at this, and thanks for your work on Nova and OpenStack in general!

I'm sorry, melwitt also asked (very reasonably) that I post the excerpt of the stack trace in the bug log itself:

AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'format_dom'

From a quick look at the code it seems to me that a LibvirtConfigGuestDiskEncryption object is being initialized without a "secret" field, and format_dom() expects the "secret" field to be there.

Best regards,

Could be that we don't get here:


I've also noticed in several places in the libvirt driver and volume code that it expects an entry for connection_info['data']['volume_id'] but that doesn't exist for the storpool volume type, as seen here:


The libvirt driver code should probably be falling back to look for the connection_info['serial'] if it can't find the volume_id, since 'serial' is something that nova puts into the connection_info on attach if it's not already there:

Matt Riedemann's fix seems to have helped the StorPool third-party Cinder CI; here's a successful run with the change cherry-picked before running devstack: http://logs.ci-openstack.storpool.com/73/539773/1/check/dsvm-tempest-storpool/0ca4a8e/console.html (look for the "fix native luks encryption failure to find volume_id" string in the console log).

Thanks a lot for the quick analysis and the quick fix!

    libvirt: fix native luks encryption failure to find volume_id

    Not all volume types put a 'volume_id' entry in the
    connection_info['data'] dict. This change uses a new
    utility method to look up the volume_id in the connection_info
    data dict and if not found there, uses the 'serial' value
    from the connection_info, which we know at least gets set
    when the DriverVolumeBlockDevice code attaches the volume.

    This also has to update pre_live_migration since the connection_info
    dict doesn't have a 'volume_id' key in it. It's unclear what
    this code was expecting, or if it ever really worked, but since
    an attached volume represented by a BlockDeviceMapping here has
    a volume_id attribute, we can just use that. As that code path
    was never tested, this updates related unit tests and refactors
    the tests to actually use the type of DriverVolumeBlockDevice
    objects that the ComputeManager would be sending down to the
    driver pre_live_migration method. The hard-to-read squashed
    dicts in the tests are also re-formatted so a human can actually
    read them.
