In nova/compute/api.py I see
@check_instance_state(vm_state=[vm_states.ACTIVE, vm_states.STOPPED,
def evacuate(self, context, instance, host, on_shared_storage,
Does anyone know the reason for only evacuate ACTIVE,STOPPED,ERROR vms?
I find the error state were added due to https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1298061. 
Can we alos evacuate vm in state like suspend or others?
