May be not all stack services are not running. Check the services end-points using keystone command 'keystone endpoints-list' to see which service is running on port 8774. or you can run './' in the devstack folder

I had the same error due to savanna.conf having host =

my ip address instead of localhost. When I commented out this line

# host =

It worked.

That's because a different interface is used (eth0 not loopback in my case) and the url is



as directed by the savanna quickstart guide.

To check this situation, try telnet localhost 8386 and telnet # replacing with your ip

In my case, i could only connect to the ip not localhost, until I changed the config as mentioned above.

I believe you can either have all urls with your ip and host = ip or all urls localhost with host = localhost #by default or set explicitly

But you cannot mix the two.

This looks like a nova issue. Check the nova logs for more information on the error.

Restart the message server as: service rabbitmq-server restart and restart cinder services: service cinder-api restart service cinder-volume restart service cinder-scheduler-restart

It worked for me. Hope it helps..

Also check your 'enabled_apis' value. For me, as I'd converted a controller node to a compute node, I'd forgotten to remove the 'enabled_apis=metadata' so the other two services were not being started where they were expected to be.
