Can't launch instances - not enough RAM?

So under the dashboard if I try to launch an instance, when I get to the point of picking a flavor, under the memory/RAM column an orange warning triangle is shown, which I suppose indicates that there is not enough RAM available on the physical host.

openstack host show <hostname>

shows over 100gb available?

Any clue?

I believe you are correct Rajesh. My tenant quota is the problem. Some clear error messages would sure be nice ..

I believe what you are seeing is the quota for the RAM in your tenant. Check if you have enough quota for RAM, using "nova quota-show" command
