Devstack Stein install fails

I have been struggling to get a Stein installation working (minimal, Cinder, Senlin, and Heat), and yesterday I tried using Devstack. That also failed, with some odd messages:

  1. Two occurrences of "More than one SecurityGroup exists with the name 'default'."

  2. failed: full log in /opt/stack/logs/ I have over 9 GB available on the drive; how can a log file be full?

To make sure I got Stein functionality, I started the process with this:

 $ git clone
 $ cd devstack
 $ git checkout stable/stein

To be clear, I'm not married to Stein, but I want something stable and recent that I can experiment with.

I know Devstack's purpose is to get the current state of the repository, but I was hoping that I could do the above to get a recent stable release. Is that not the case? If Devstack does not propagate the "stable/stein" parameter to its own cloning operations, I will end up with a mix of versions and I wouldn't expect it to work as I wanted.

I have attached my local.conf file here:

After the log full message I got this:

Error on exit
nova-compute: no process found
neutron-dhcp-agent: no process found
neutron-l3-agent: no process found
neutron-metadata-agent: no process found
neutron-openvswitch-agent: no process found

"full log" means "complete log". To get stable/stein, run

git clone https://.... -b stable/stein

I would start with a clean operating system installation. Perhaps traces are left from your earlier attempt at standing up a cloud, which interfere with the devstack launch.

Thanks. I had unsuccessfully tried a regular clone followed by checkout. So with this attempt, after about 45 minutes of installation, I got this:

The sequence above is followed by an "openstack flavor create..." which is not complete after ten minutes.

Here is the final several lines of the install:

I will now dig into the logs and see if there is anything I can decipher there.
