My problem: When launching on the cinder node the command : cinder create 1 the command "hangs" and keeps hanging without providing a single error msg on the screen or in any log file. When I open another terminal and run cinder list is see the new volume, with state 'creating'. The only way to recover is by existing the command and run a 'cinder delete <id>' after.

My setup : Running latest version of folsom 1 controller node running keystone,nova compute, glance, network 1 compute node running nova compute 1 compute node running nova compute and cinder

Config files of cinder are provided. The cinder logs files have been cleaned before running the command. So they only contain valid entries.

When running the create command no logical volume is created. (I am, manually, able to create a 5G lv in the vg cinder-volumes)

Output of the create command with the debug turn on :

Some extra information, my scheduler.log remains untouched. Only when I restart the cinder-scheduler service is sees some activity

fyi : the behavior remains the same when I use the python-novaclient instead of the python-cinderclient : "nova volume-create --display_name vol0 10"

09:25] <dcz> I've noticed something strange yesterday when I was reinstalling cinder. My database connection string was ignored when I added the line at the end of the cinder.conf [09:25] <dcz> below the section :[keystone_authtoken] [09:26] <dcz> could it be that if I place qpid_hostname below the section [keystone_authtoken] in my cinder.conf that it is ignored ? [09:26] <dcz> ow fuck [09:26] <dcz> that was the problem [09:27] <dcz> it is working now :D [09:27] <winston-d> DCZ: :) you were mixing api-paste.ini content into cinder.conf
