euca-run-instances does not respond anything

Hello, When I executed euca-run-instances, I could not get any response. I followed the instruction in ( with the following exceptions: - I see a stacktrace on 'bin/nova-manage ${NOVA_MANAGE_ARGS} vpn list' due to "nova.exception.NotFound: project network data has not been set" - For the installation of libvirt-0.7.7, I should use "./configure --with-python --without-storage-disk ", because ped_device_* functions are undefined references, resulting in compile error.

My base environment is Ubuntu server 10.04 x86_64 edition.

The following is the output log from nova-api:

Sun, 12 Sep 2010 10:25:50 GMT /_images/ DEBUG:boto:Method: GET DEBUG:boto:Path: /_images/ DEBUG:boto:Data: DEBUG:boto:Headers: {'Date': 'Sun, 12 Sep 2010 10:25:50 GMT', 'Content-Length': '0', 'Authorization': 'AWS fd1bad5d-8900-4b3a-ac33-16c1e005c978:myproj:3ilCAlhDw9LCGrrJHecrQZrfy4Y=', 'User-Agent': 'Boto/1.9b (linux2)'} DEBUG:boto:Host: DEBUG:boto:establishing HTTP connection DEBUG:root:Going to run instances...

According to 'print' debug, it seems to be blocked at yield sentence in line 529 of nova/endpoint/

def _get_network_topic(self, context):
    """Retrieves the network host for a project"""
    host = network_service.get_host_for_project(
    if not host:
        host = yield,
                                {"method": "set_network_host",
                                 "args": {"user_id":,
    defer.returnValue('%s.%s' %(FLAGS.network_topic, host))

I imagine that the lack of project network data is related with my issue. But I don't know what is wrong in my configuration. Is the success of "node-manage vpn list" mandatory? If so, could anyone tell me how vpn configuration (client.ovpn.template file?) should be created?

Thanks a lot for your replies. Two things your pointed out does work! I could launch instances in flat network mode.

As for 'node-manage vpn list', I agree. I don't see that the execution path of node-manage has the call of vpn creation.

Oh and the error in the 'nova-manage vpn list' cmd I believe is a bug; the vpn is no longer setup by the nova-manage code IIRC.

The directions you used are out of date.

Two things (at least) need to change:

1) All of the network args have changed. s/simple/flat/g (...the flags are all prefixed with 'flat' now, not 'simple').

2) The networking code is now contained in a separate service, nova/bin/nova-network. You need to pass it all of the network args when you start it.

You can find some other installation perspectives here: ( .
