Ocata release Two strong nodes setup controller and compute. Most services running on controller. There no problem to launch cirros or any small flavor like fedora( ~250 MB) The compute(M4 IBM server) have 128 GB memory and 1.4 TB disk available for instances, CPU `24 physical cores(2 sockets). The limit defined as 100 vCPU... All neutron agents up(ml2 , linux-bridge etc) and running same for nova services , the controller show hypervisor up and running compute node appear properly, keystone ok , glance service also.- everything run according to manual(RDO) without any warnings in log files. The only one problem not enough connections in Rabbitmq fixed , increased from 214 to 4096. Deploying any big -more then 1 GB image VM failed with "No valid host was found. There are not enough hosts available. Code 500" and lot of python exceptions... Seems like same unknown limitation s in nova.conf. Any suggestion more than welcomed.

What do you mean by a 1GB image VM? Is the image larger than 1GB or the instance?

The nova scheduler log should tell you if the placement service was unable to find a fitting compute host or if the filters rejected all hosts, and which filter. You may have to switch on debug logging.

Mentioned qcow file used to deploy instance on Ocata.File copied to the local server and then used the command to create the image like:"OpenStack image create --disk-format qcow2 --container-format bare --public --file /tmp/NX-14.7.10-03-disk1.qcow2 NX1114" I used my own flavor" "big" defined as 8*VCPU *GB RAM and 80 GB HD Firstly I trying to deploy my own qcow file ~6GB(come from KVM) and failed.Then I decide to deploy some standard image downloaded from public location Win2008 for example on same flavor and faile on "not enough hosts available" I set debug on True in my nova.conf but there no more additional info recevied...
