Registered by Gary Kotton on 2011-11-01

Add in a usability feature that will help troubleshooting and debugging.
Advantages:-
 - Easy access to error information. Use this instead of digging in the log files
 - Standard format for information supplied when opening bugs
 - Speed up deployments

CLI interface example:-
nova-manage last-error [<args>]
Where the arguments can be:
    all
    host <component>
