I have setup an openstack env (1 controller + 1 network node + 1 compute node) with packstack, and everything is ok for 9 instances running on my compute node. But when I try to launch the 10th instance, it hangs in the build state and neven moves on. I check the nova log and find nothing but the scheduler log below:

2014-04-08 22:16:32.017 3665 INFO nova.scheduler.filter_scheduler [req-8e2bdb2e-fac1-4904-82d0-d51f337fe108 d52f7f2cb8c54bd4b0ba8728f8f2208e 36fca0c3329a4ce68be6f1cb952d10e0] Attempting to build 1 instance(s) uuids: [u'd8fce202-e416-4002-9a55-5c1a05b9e07d']

I have already increased the instance number in project quota from 10 to 100, and there is still enough vcpus, memory and disk on the compute node for 10+ instance. I doubt it is a configuration issue but I can't figure it out. Can anyone help to look into this issue? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

after I changed the quota in /etc/nova/nova.conf and restart nova-* service, the issue is resolved. It seems that the modification to project quota doesn't work at all.

What version of OpenStack was this issue seen on? The behavior seems unusual that tenant is able to spawn (quota - 1) instances in the first place! Please check the task_state of 10th instance when it is stuck in building state.
