I tried creating the nova credential zip file and it failed because the /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/nova/..//CA directory did not exist. And threw the below error. However, when I copied files from CA from source code directory (present case /home/shinys/openstack1/nova-2011.1/CA) to /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/nova/..//CA, it worked fine for me. Shouldn't this be an automated procedure? Well I tried the solution at ( , it didnt help.

nova-manage project zipfile shinysp shinys

I've solved it copyng the /var/lib/nova/CA/ files to the directory where nova-managed is launched.

hope this helps
