I have a openstack folsom setup Earlier it was working fine. buit since two days its not launching the instances.. after launching it goes to error state. Seeing the compute log i saw something like [OSDIR] /var/lib/nova/instance is only readable Errno 30

If anyone can help Thanks in Advance.

compute log or scheduler log should exactly say what is going wrong before setting to error state.

did u reboot your box ? Looks like your harddisk is mounted in read only mode. Check it. If you are not able to write anywhere then OpenStack also willnot work.
