Nova-api is not starting, so therefore, I can't start nova-compute. When I try a restart of the nova-api service, such as:

root@ubuntu2:~# service nova-api restart

I get a response like:

pidfile /var/run/nova/nova-api.pid does not exist. Daemon not running?

In this case, you should set the daemonize flag to 1 (true) in /etc/nova/nova.conf, like: --daemonize=1

Restart the services with this setting enabled and you should be able to start all the services again.

After restarting all services can I delete this deamonize flag? I am using Icehosue one-node-installation.
