[nova] Nova evacuate issue

Considering that this issue happened in our production environment, it’s not exactly possible to try to reproduce without shutting down servers that are currently in use. That said, If the current logs I have are enough, I will try opening a bug on the bugtracker.

Compute22, the source host, was completely dead. It refused to boot up through IPMI.

It is possible that that stein fix prevented me from reproducing the problem in my staging environment (production is on rocky, staging is on stein).

Also, it may be important to note that our neutron is split, as we use neutron-rpc-server to answer rpc calls. It’s also HA, as we have two controllers with neutron-rpc-server and the api running (and that won’t work anymore when we upgrade production to stein, but that’s another problem entirely and probably off-topic here).
