Bug Description


Resolves issue described below by making rpc client tolerant of incompatible
remote agent for reserve_block_device_name() calls which can occur during upgrades if compute services are upgraded after clients e.g. nova-api. The proposed fix will cause the client to fallback to a known good/supported api version.

[Test Case]

  * Deploy openstack with all nova services on the same version and test that
    volume operations, particularly attach and detach are working correctly.

  * Deploy Openstack with only Nova client services upgraded (i.e. don't
    upgrade nova-compute) and test that volume operations, particularly attach
    and detach are working correctly.

  * Perform same tests as for 1349888 to ensure the fix is still working.

[Regression Potential]


The SRU recently landed for https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1349888 introduced a potential upgrade regression if nova services are not upgraded all at once.

2015-10-14 20:45:00.778 10909 TRACE nova.api.openstack RemoteError: Remote error: UnsupportedVersion Endpoint does not support RPC version 3.35
2015-10-14 20:45:00.778 10909 TRACE nova.api.openstack [u'Traceback (most recent call last):\n', u' File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/oslo/messaging/rpc/dispatcher.py", line 133, in _dispatch_and_reply\n incoming.message))\n', u' File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/oslo/messaging/rpc/dispatcher.py", line 185, in _dispatch\n raise UnsupportedVersion(version)\n', u'UnsupportedVersion: Endpoint does not support RPC version 3.35\n'].

Basically, if nova-compute services are updated after nova-api services you will hit this issue if you perform volume operations. A simple solution, if possible, is to upgrade nova-compute services so that they are all in sync but I still want to remove the possibility for regression while keeping the fix from 1349888. I will propose an SRU shortly to resolve this.
