Hi,

I followed the instructions as detailed in the openstack (newton) setup guide for centos 7 but for the compute node, the compute service is failing

2017-03-13 15:45:29.399 28693 INFO nova.service [-] Starting compute node (version 15.0.0-1.el7)

There's nothing in the documentation detailing the setup of the placement server on the compute node. Plus, I'm not sure if this is required.

Documentation: "The nova-compute service will fail to start in Ocata unless the [placement] section of nova.conf on the compute is configured".
