Hi guys, today we found out that one of our compute nodes had rebooted
durning the night, so when i got to the office I started rebooting the
instances but... they never started. After a quite a few reboots I saw the
light at the end of the tunnel...

2014-05-27 15:23:45.002 ERROR nova.compute.manager
[req-a76d922e-4aaa-4357-83cb-5e5a1869b5cc 31020076174943bdb7486c330a298d93
d1e3aae242f14c488d2225dcbf1e96d6] [instance:
b17bfae2-27b4-49a4-9d1b-bd739b400347] Cannot reboot instance: Image
39baad54-6ce1-4f42-b431-1bac4fd6df28 could not be found.

I've got 3 instances with this same error, all of them were created from
the same glance image which is not longer among us (replaced for a new
one). My question is, why do the instance need the image to start? The
instance disks are there

  root at cebolla:/var/lib/nova# ll

drwxr-xr-x  2 nova nova       3896 feb 20 12:49 ./
drwxr-xr-x 28 nova nova       3896 may 27 14:36 ../

-rw-r--r--  1 nova nova       1782 may 27 15:23 libvirt.xml
root at cebolla:/var/lib/nova#

Any ideas will be more than apreciated.

Thanks guys!
