I am installing Openstack grizzly on Ubuntu 13.04 taking ESXi as my hypervisor. I am installing the nova-compute service on another machine which is not working and showing it to be an unknown instance when being restarted. This has happened recently as nova-compute service was running fine previously. I have checked the nova-compute.log which is not having any error. Besides, controller node has all the services running leaving the nova-compute service on another node having a state of XXX. I have installed nova-compute-qemu on my compute node as my initial step. My ntp server is in sync on both the machines. I am not getting where I am wrong following the openstack grizzly basic installation guide.Is it the hypervisor compatibility? Had it been so then the service would not have run even once or due to libvirt service? Kindly help me in dis respect.

so there can be more than one issue. Suggestion for fix would be : 1. Are both computes using same hypervisor. 2. Is nova.conf on the other hypervisor correctly configured.

Is the compute node correctly configured to contact the controller node? The IP address or the hostname of the controller should be properly setup. Else, it may cause such an error. This would be in the file /etc/nova/nova.conf.
