Having just installed openstack with the rackspace ISO, I am quite satisfied so far. All the things that failed to work with devstack have worked correctly, except for ec2. I have an install with no major modifications, but all ec2 requests fail to complete. I am using the python library 'boto' and I have correctly set the environment variables by sourcing the '' file provided by horizon. The specific error returned is:

No handler was ready to authenticate. 1 handlers were checked. ['QuerySignatureV2AuthHandler'] Check your credentials

I am sure this is something simple that I am missing, any help is greatly appreciated.

The issue turned out to be a sign of the install being messed up, a short time after this happened, the entire cloud started to become unstable. I reinstalled with packstack on centos at the recommendation of a forum. All is well now.
