I am using the OpenStack cloud computing cookbook to become familiar with OpenStack. I'm currently running Essex in a Ubuntu 12.04 virtualbox VM.

When using nova-client to boot an instance, the state of the instances never changes from "building". How can I figure out what has gone wrong?

I can provide more information, and please re-direct me if this is not the best location to ask this question.

thanks! Valerie
