I am having an issue getting instances to launch in latest icehouse release instance hangs at starting up (cirros or fedora cloud) OS=RHEL6.5 Version=2014.1-16.el6.noarch Network type is gre. (No L2 issues that I can see)

Setup is 3 node build - dedicated compute, controller and networknodes i tried the same setup with packstak and manual build via http://openstack.org docs same results: Seems like I am waiting some kind of retry (need some pointer to dig deeper) NovaLog: Dynamic looping call sleeping for 32.75 seconds _inner no hard errors in neutron log but my guess is the problem is with networking logs from nova and neutron here http://paste.openstack.org/raw/81032/

All services start up with out failure.

no console log get generated

Please let me know if I can provide additional configuration details

Hi anthonyv, I have been having the same problem and had been searching around for ages but couldn't find any answers. But after lots of experimenting I found the problem... as expected "human error"...

The problem was that I had blindly gone through the installation guide and not fully read the steps.

In the online guide ( http://docs.openstack.org/icehouse/install-guide/install/yum/content/nova-compute.html (http://docs.openstack.org/icehouse/in...) ) part 6. says to run the following on your compute node:

egrep -c '(vmx|svm)' /proc/cpuinfo

  • If this returns a 0 then "virt_type = qemu" should be set in the nova.conf configuration of the compute node.
  • If this returns any number higher then "virt_type = kvm" should be set in the nova.conf configuration of the compute node.

On my compute nodes I had set "virt_type = qemu" even though the previous command returned a high number. As soon as I changed this to kvm all my instances started working.

I hope this helps for you.
