While starting nova compute i am getting the below error. ClassNotFound: Class LibvirtDriver could not be found: 'module' object has no attribute 'LibvirtDriver'

I have seperate compute instance on which nova-api-metadata & nova-network is up and running. My config file section:- libvirt_type=qemu compute_driver=nova.virt.libvirt.LibvirtDriver

Any inputs?

Regards, Dev
