I am installing openstack on debian for the first time. I am following Openstack installation - Debian guide. I have set the OS_* enviroment and keystone token-get works except that it also shows 'No handlers could be found for logger "keystoneclient.httpclient"' and is taking a long time (about 40 seconds).

But I can not fetch a userlist, it just don't reply anything:

root@cloudcontrol01:~# keystone user-list

No handlers could be found for logger "keystoneclient.httpclient"


But If I select all from table user of keystone database (mysql) I get one entry for admin.

Same behavior for registering services:

root@cloudcontrol01:~# keystone service-create --name=keystone --type=identity --description="OpenStack Identity"

No handlers could be found for logger "keystoneclient.httpclient"


No service is created and the command takes very long.

Any help would be very nice. Please tell me if you need any further informations.

Thanks and regards, Nils Schröder

Handler not found is a warning that most probably you can ignore it. Do you know the keystone endpoint? e.g if os-auth-url=http://controller:35357/v2.0, then try curl -k http://controller:35357 . It should output version information.

Most probably your keystone endpoint is wrong

Thank you for your help, it lead me into the right direction. I do not completly understand what was wrong but this is how I solved it:

- select * from keystone.service did not show an entry for keystone. Also no entry in keystone.endpoint table.
- all commands except keystone token-get did not work, no error message and no output, just a blank line.

- unset all OS_*
- export OS_SERVICE_ENDPOINT=$http://controller:35357/v2.0
- recreate the keystone service and endpoint: (

I think my problem may was that the service is created by debian package manager and this may failed without warning. So I followed ( and unset OS_SERVICE_ENDPOINT and keystone did'nt know what to do after that.

So again many thanks for your help,
Nils Schröder
