I am using devstack on ubuntu 12.04. When starting the after a reboot, the scripts hangs at the command

cd /opt/stack/cinder && /usr/local/bin/cinder-volume --config-file /etc/cinder/cinder.conf

with the message

2013-07-08 16:55:12.935 ERROR cinder.openstack.common.rpc.common   [req-94a7b477-794b-4679-864d-dd6deb7ba5e8 None None] AMQP server on localhost:5672 is  unreachable: Socket closed. Trying again in 1 seconds.

It is true that there is no one listening (at least on ipv4):

root@devstack:~# netstat -tulpen |grep 5672

What am I missing? What could I do to further debug this?

OpenStack uses a AMQP messaging bus for various components to communicate. By default, this is provided by RabbitMQ, but on RedHat-based systems usually QPID is used.

What the error means, and as you've noted, is that the RabbitMQ/QPID server is not running. Check the logs to determine if it has failed to start for some reason (such as missing the 'rabbit_password' as noted by bvivek), or if there is nothing there try starting it manually using the appropriate init script.

Once RabbitMQ/QPID is started, you should be able to start cinder once again.

I had the same issue and it was solved by correcting the "rabbit_password" value in cinder.conf file.

For default installation this value is "guest" (please verify this in your setup).
