Recovering from ‘_nova_to_osvif_vif_binding_failed’ | Funky Penguin

I was showing off my OpenStack dev cluster to a co-worker, and spouting off about how easy and user-proof live-migration is. I challenged him to try it, and he subsequently broke my OpenStack, by trying to live-migrate instances to a compute node targets whose FQDN doesn’t exist (using client CLI commands). Apparently this makes nova sit in a permanent “migration” state (see bug #1643623).
