I'm installing OpenStack on two nodes. One as controller, network and compute, the other just as compute node. According to the document of Rocky, I installed all modules on the controller node and all became verified. At the next step, I configure the compute node and set the configurations according to the document, but when I start the service openstack-nova-compute it just logs:

compute.pps.wams systemd[1]: Starting OpenStack Nova Compute Server...

and it never start!

In the logs of nova-compute it just writes one line:

2018-11-25 15:53:56.730 1246 INFO os_vif [-] Loaded VIF plugins: ovs, linux_bridge, noop

I should tell that I don't config and install Neutron, yet because the documentation suggested installing components according to the list order. What could be the problem?

Can you verify that no other nova-compute process is running? try ps alx | grep nova and kill respective process(es) if necessary. Try running the command manually /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/nova-compute and watch log files (nova-compute.log, syslog) for issues.

In my case, it was because of faulty Rabbitmq. Check the Rabbitmq logs and ensure it works properly.

I have exactly the same problem and I can not find a solution anywhere. I hope someone shares useful information about it.
