Why Is Failed Displayed for a BMS Allocation Task But the BMS List Shows the Allocated BMS?


After a user allocates a BMS that requires an EIP on the management console, the BMS allocation request was successfully processed but the EIP failed to be bound to the BMS because the EIP resources are insufficient. In this case, Failed is displayed for the task in the Task Status area. However, the requested BMS is displayed in the BMS list.

Root Cause

  • The BMS list shows the details about allocated BMSs.
  • The Task Status area shows the processing status of the BMS allocation task, including statuses of sub-tasks, such as allocating the BMS resource and binding an EIP. Only when all subtasks have succeeded, the task status becomes Succeeded. Otherwise, the task status is Failed.

If the BMS is successfully allocated but the EIP fails to be bound to the BMS, Failed is displayed for the task. The allocated BMS is temporarily displayed in the BMS list. After the system rolls back the failed task, the BMS is automatically removed from the list.
