Sorry for being such a noob, but how do I determine what I should use as my auth url. I ask because when I execute ...

$ nova list

... I get this error message ...

ERROR (CommandError): You must provide an auth url via either --os-auth-url or env[OS_AUTH_URL] or specify an auth_system which defines a default url with --os-auth-system or env[OS_AUTH_SYSTEM]

I am using devstack as I am a total noob.

You'll want to setup an openrc file. Step 4.

You can also get your endpoint if you do:

keystone endpoint-list

With Devstack see if there is already an openrc file, then just type:

source openrc

If it's named something else you would source {filename}.

Yes! Thanks there is an openrc file in the devstack directory.

[red@localhost devstack]$ source openrc 
[red@localhost devstack]$ env | grep -i url
