Hi folks, I've successfully installed RDO Packstsck and have it setup for external networking. Im doing all this in virtualbox for learning purposes. I can launch cirros test image without issue, and from the host machine I can ping and ssh into it. I have set libvirt_type=qemu in /etc/nova/nova.conf.

But I have imported into glance a larger fedora image which only gives me an error. I do not know how to troubleshoot or fix. I have adjusted flavour size to give the fedora image enough RAM and disk size

Any ideas. Here is a http://pastebin.com/xySapYwd (pastebin) to my openstack-status And https://www.dropbox.com/s/w53m2mnhjfa7ik6/fdoraError.PNG (screen-cap)

Regards

as per my understanding, you are trying to use KVM/Qemu inside virtualbox. if that is the case then it will not work because virtualbox doesn't support nested virtualization please refer https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/4032. I suggest you to try using VMware player or kvm on the host machine. also please post the output of nova show <instance id="">

Hi thank you for your comment. Yes it seams to be a virtualbox limitation at fault :( I have recreated myseup using a trial version of VMware Workstation and its working. Thank you.
