Instance shows active but not booting

Running RDO Liberty and Newton on an AWS centos 7.0 HVM node. All-in-one via packstack

Instance launches, but does not go through the block device mapping phase. Quickly goes to active. A volume is created and can be seen via cinder command. The instance console says "Starting up..." I have also had nodes fail with PXE errors. Also failing to boot.

No console log at all for the instance. Horizon shows a single blank line. Nothing else. So it isn't booting.

I have tried two cirros images and a centos image - same error. CLI and horizon.

All openstack services show active and running via systemctl output

Few errors, only one that looks like it may matter is this: [root@ip-172-31-41-255 log(keystone_admin)]# grep -i error nova/nova-compute.log 2017-01-12 05:35:05.892 26936 ERROR nova.compute.manager [req-f7b2d76e-5367-4d68-b698-979fc4667b0c - - - - -] No compute node record for host ip-172-31-41-255

No libvirt.log or other errors The instances are just not finishing the launch.

Anyone have ideas where to look or what to fix?

I'm having the same issue with Mitaka v5. It's shows spawned but whenI go into the console of Openstack for thatVM is just sits there at the iPXE screen with the cursor just blinking. It can't move from there.

Anyone can assist? I'm somewhat of a novice at Openstack.

Also having this problem (newton). I did notice that the libvirt instance name in virsh and ps does not match the name in nova show.
