How to update existing vm instances 'availability_zone' field in nova
database 'instances' table? It turns out there are many VMs with
default 'nova' availability zone, while the hypervisors are with
another different target aggregate/availability zone name, thus live
migration for these VMs are failing.
The strange thing is that the 'OS-EXT-AZ:availability_zone' output
from 'openstack server show VM_NAME' is showing these VMs are already
with the target availibity_zone name. No idea why we have this
Would it be ok to just update database table entry directly to set
'availility_zone' to different value for these VMs? Or there might be
better alternatives I am not aware of?
