please I'm facing some issues since I've installed Openstack throught Devstack. Everything looks like functionning weel, I can see all images, networks, and some more other things in CLI and through the Dashboard.

But anytime I type commands such as: openstack-status openstack-service start service cinder-api restart and so on... I have this issue: Failed to restart cinder-api.service: Unit cinder-api.service not found. in the case of cinder-api restart service and it should be the same for other service (Neutron, Nova etc..)

It seems like any service is launched.

Second Problem: two instances of the same network can't ping each other and I don't know why. Through the Dashboard, I can see IP address assing by the system, but when I'm connected on the instance, typing ifconfig command, I can't see the IP address.

It looks like any openstack CLI doesn't work why?

another example: opestack baremetal driver/node list or ect... here is the issue:

public endpoint for baremetal service in RegionOne region not found

But everything looks like it's ok on the dashboard why?

Am I wrong somewhere?

Please any help!

In Devstack, there is no service named “cinder-api”. Try “devstack@c-api” instead. Reference:

I can’t say why the instance did not get the IP address. Something is wrong with the network configuration that prevents it to get the DHCP response or send the DHCP request. Perhaps there is no DHCP server on that network? What if uou set the addresses manually; can the instances communicate?

Regarding the baremetal commands: Did you deploy the baremetal service (Ironic) at all?

Hi @Bernd,

Thanks for your reply, I tried "devstack@c-api" it shows me the status, thanks very much and I also looked at the link.

About the Network, the DHCP is activated, so when I'm creating a new NW/s-NW, I leave the DHCP box checked by default so I guest the DHCP should work.

Concerning the baremetal, I did not deploy the Ironic service(Because when using the Devstack tool, Ironic is not include in the preinstalled services.)

Thanks enough!

So you still have the networking problem. It's a bit odd; Devstack should set this up correctly. If you add the local.conf to your question, perhaps I see something incorrect.
