I want to install nova on multiple servers. So I tried it according to the steps in page (

But it seemed something wrong with the steps, could anyone make them clear? The followings are my questions.

  1. Is there any step for installing nova-compute? There is no nova-compute in the step 1.

  2. In step 4, the command "usr/bin/python /usr/bin/nova-manage project create network" is used to create network. But when I executed the command, the following error occured.

Possible wrong number of arguments supplied project create: Creates a new project arguments: name project_manager [description] Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/nova-manage", line 508, in <module> main() File "/usr/bin/nova-manage", line 500, in main fn(*argv) TypeError: create() takes at least 3 arguments (2 given)

  1. The instructions are probably assuming that compute and volume will be on the other nodes. They are a work in progress, the ones here might be slightly more up to date:

  2. That was an error. There is no project create network command.

1) It appears that the second half of the guide you were trying to follow was missing. I'll see about at least updating the wiki so it is complete.

2) I believe when the instructions were originally made the network creation command had not been separated from the project command. This can be easily updated. IIRC you should do 'nova-manage network create'
