Do you have nova-volume running? Do you have the volume service enpoint configured in the service catalog in Keystone? It should look something like this (with the correct IPs for your environment of course):

catalog.RegionOne.volume.publicURL =$(tenant_id)s catalog.RegionOne.volume.adminURL =$(tenant_id)s catalog.RegionOne.volume.internalURL =$(tenant_id)s = Volume Service

You should also look in the nova-volume, nova-api and horizon logs to see if that gives you any clues.

Hope this help!

What is the size of the volume you're trying to create ? I think Devstack installs a 2GB file for volumes, or something like that. So trying to create a volume > 2 GB could lead to an error. Try setting a volume with size of 1 GB, and if you still get an error - try restarting the libvirt-bin. If this doesn't help - then there is a problem with the setup. Remove devstack and /opt/stack directories, and download a fresh copy of devstack.
