We are trying to setup a multi-server installation of nova. We have successfully installed everything as mentioned in "". But when we tried to add a keypair using euca it is throwing the following exception,

Warning: failed to parse error message from AWS: <unknown>:1:0: syntax error EC2ResponseError: 403 Forbidden 403 Forbidden

Access was denied to this resource

Even we tried using euca-describe-instances, it is also throwing the same exception as mentioned above.

Apart from this in node controller(NC), we tried to start nova-volume. After sometime it automatically stops. We tried to identify the problem, unfortunately the we were unable to locate the nova-volume.log file in /var/log/nova directory.

Here my question is whether can we use the "" file from "" for installing a Cloud Controller(CC)?

Could anyone provide help on this issue?

Regards, Raaj

Greetings, Raaj!

From my experiences, the 403 forbidden error is due to the novarc file. In the multiserver install doc, it states two ways to get the novarc file. One is within a zipfile, and then the easier way, which just generates novarc. If you do the zipfile, then the following novarc alone, you end up losing the creds that are tied to the user you created with nova-manage in the steps before. It's a little misleading right now, and hopefully that will be getting cleaned up soon :D
