tl;dr - live upgrades are hard. oops.

Thanks for bringing this up. We realized a problem with the way I had done these patches after some of them had merged. First, some history. The first time we did some major rpc version bumps, they were done exactly like I did them here.  This approach allows live upgrades for CD based deployments. It does *not* allow live upgrades from N-1 to N releases. We didn't bother because we knew there were other reasons that N-1 to N live upgrades would not work at that point. When I did this patch series, I took the same approach. I didn't account for the fact that we were going to try to pull off allowing live upgrades from Havana to Icehouse. The patches only supported live upgrades in a CD environment. I need to go back and add a shim layer that can handle receiving the latest version of messages sent by Havana to all APIs.  https://review.openstack.org/#/c/12130/  https://review.openstack.org/#/c/12131/ -- Russell Bryant _______________________________________________ OpenStack-dev mailing list OpenStackfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
