You probably have an entry for root@'story' in your user records. I've had bad luck using SET PASSWORD, it doesn't always seem to change all of the user records. Try an update instead:

mysql> UPDATE mysql.user SET Password=PASSWORD('MyNewPass') -> WHERE User='root'; mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;

New question #158294 on OpenStack Compute (nova):

I am installing nova from source code on ubuntu 10.10. If following $ mysql -uroot -ppassword

CREATE DATABASE nova; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON . TO 'root'@'%' WITH GRANT OPTION; SET PASSWORD FOR 'root'@'%' = PASSWORD('nova'); to grant password to nova, and specify "--sql_connection=mysql://root:nova@" in bin/nova.conf, then I will get Access denied while running nova-manage db sync.

But if I change to 'root'@localhost in Mysql and root://root:nova@localhost/nova in conf, then db sync works fine. It seems no others has this issue, can you share your fixes? Thanks, -Fred
