Hi all I am using Ububtu 18.04 with Stein release I wonder what is the issue of "Details: Placement service credentials do not work." when I issue the "nova-status upgrade check" command here is the output:

here is the nova.conf configuration file:

and here is the nova-scheduler log file: which the issue is as follow: "Got no allocation candidates from the Placement API. This could be due to insufficient resources or a temporary occurrence as compute nodes start up."

any help would be appreciated. thanks

The error message indicates that the Placement credentials that you configured don't work. This is your configuration:

region_name = RegionOne
project_domain_name = FIRST_DOMAIN
project_name = SERVICE_PROJECT
auth_type = password
user_domain_name = FIRST_DOMAIN
auth_url =
username = placement
password = PonitofView

Could it be that the password contains a typo?

I got similar issue now, but my password is correct in the nova.conf. How to fix that then?
