Im trying to debug a problem where launching an instance gets stuck at "spawning". Then it again gets stuck at "deleting"

However, Im unable to debug since nova-compute.log is missing at /var/log/nova .. The other files seem to exist, conductor, schedule, api etc.

This is for icehouse. Any pointers will help

check whether the permissions are set for /var/log/nova

check the nova-compute.conf file whether it logdir and logfile is uncommented.

/var/log/nova should be owned by nova:nova.
