Nova snapshots

Asked by GP on 2014-03-28

I'm having some troubles creating snapshots from running instances. I run nova image-create <instance name> <snapshot name> and it runs with no errors, but no snapshot is created either.

In the nova compute log there is an error:
2014-03-28 09:25:48.445 130915 ERROR nova.openstack.common.rpc.amqp [req-e7129148-7d86-4156-9f8d-8547288d48a1 ec518c8689964bebaae7d084eae4560d 6127d771b5014623bee2cf8a82fc1aff] Exception during message handling

and further details show IncompatibleObjectVersion: Version 1.9 of Instance is not supported

I can spawn new instances on this compute no with no problem.

Googling for IncompatibleObjectVersion brings up (among others)
https://ask.openstack.org/en/question/24933/failed-when-i-try-to-start-openstack-compute/
with a similar problem caused by different versions of the openstack packages between the compute node and the controller node.
Maybe you also have such situation.

Thanks Manfred Hampl, that solved my question.

I had installed everything off of the cloud-archive:havana repository, but running apt-get upgrade nova on the compute and controller nodes fixed the problem.
