# Revision history [back]

I was facing the same issue in the installation of OpenStack Kilo on Ubuntu 14.04 till I re-started everything from scratch paying attention to this detail: be extremely careful to the "$" and "#" symbol before each command. They stand for "command by user" and "command by root" (in order). More precisely, this commands are all sent by user and not from root: export OS_TOKEN=(insert_your_random_generated_key_here) export OS_URL=http://controller:35357/v2.0 openstack service create \ --name keystone --description "OpenStack Identity" identity  I suppose the environment variables are user related.

More precisely, this commands commands, to be inserted before keystone related activities, are all sent by user and not from root:

export OS_TOKEN=(insert_your_random_generated_key_here)
export OS_URL=http://controller:35357/v2.0
openstack service create \   --name keystone --description "OpenStack Identity" identity
OS_URL=http://controller:35357/v2.0


I suppose the environment variables are user related.
