I am following this guide - http://docs.openstack.org/havana/inst...

I am unable to start the nova-* services on the compute node. I get an entry in the syslog saying:

init: nova-compute main process (2940) terminated with status 1

I believe this bug was documented here - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+so... . But this is a very old bug and the solutions that are mentioned in the comments don't work for me.

Because the nova services don't start, there are no logs in /var/log/nova/ But I find the following in /var/log/upstart/nova-compute.log:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/nova-compute", line 6, in <module>
    from nova.cmd.compute import main
ImportError: No module named cmd.compute
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/nova-compute", line 6, in <module>
    from nova.cmd.compute import main
ImportError: No module named cmd.compute

Same goes for nova-network and nova-api-metadata

I don't know if this is a migration issue from grizzle to havana or a permissions issue. I'd appreciate help here. I've already posted on the openstack mailing list and IRC chats

I forgot to reply back up here. I solved this one. Turns out this was a migration issue from Grizzly to Havana. Had someone install devstack-grizzly on the host i was on. Managed to uninstall devstack, deleted /opt/stack/* and then installed everything again. That seemed to do the trick.

If anyone can pin point what was happening, it might help me (and people referring to this post in the future) understand.

Thanks, Naman
