I am new to OpenStack and attempt to set up the lab environment for further study. My installation was based on the official recommended ubuntu 16.04, followed the document ( The process was interrupted , display the following error information:

It's probably not Neutron but Cinder that has a problem. See the openstack volume create command at the beginning of the output you are sharing.

Devstack's Cinder backend is LVM. The physical volume is a loop-mounted file. Could it be that you don't have enough storage space?

You can also check Cinder's API log sudo journalctl -u devstack@cinder-api.

I followed your idea to resize the storage, it failed again by the problem you mentioned: the c-api did not start.

as I intend to check the Cinder's API log, it presents no entries.

I gave you a typo. The service is named c-api, and therefore you read the log with sudo journalctl -u devstack@c-api.
