Are you using qemu or KVM? If using qemu with libvirt 2, there is a issue that need to add this at libvirt section in nova.conf


In any case, check nova compute,scheduler abf api logs.

I had the same problem using libvirt 2.0.0 on CentOS 7.3, I've changed the value of cpu_mode parameter in nova.conf from "host-model" to "none" and then the wm boot up successfully. The vm boot from volume using ceph rbd as back end.

Same situation: RDO All-In-One devstack (Newton) on Vmware workstation. Changing cpu_mode from host-model to none solved the problem for newly created VMs.
