I'm following the "OpenStack Installation Guide for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, and Fedora - havana" and installed:

  • a controller node with keystone, glance, nova-conductor, nova-scheduler, nova-api, nova-cert, nova-consoleauth and neutron-server
  • a network node with neutron-openvswitch, neuron dhcp, neutron-metadata and neutron-l3
  • a computer node with neutron-openvswitch and nova-computer I'm using qpid for the message broker.

I'm trying to launch an instance (nova boot command). The command adds the vm in nova list but the vm is in error (see below).

| ID                                   | Name          | Status | Task State | Power State | Networks |

| 61b606e2-4066-4a48-9d7b-a58c82e390e3 | test-instance | ERROR  | None       | NOSTATE     |          |

In the logs of the nova-computer, there is the following message repeatedly: 2014-01-21 15:31:52.705 4819 WARNING nova.conductor.api [req-554e681f-2705-4503-b6f0-2d1db62d6e6d None None] Timed out waiting for nova-conductor. Is it running? Or did this service start before nova-conductor?

I wasn't able to find any other error in the different logs.

Why do I have this message?

I have found the problem. It was due to the configuration of the AMQP exchange on computer node (control_exchange in nova.conf) which was different from the one on the controller node.
