I'm having a problem with Floating IP's. I create a pool with nova-manage called nova, and then create the list of IP's using nova-manage. But when I run nova floating-ip-pool-list, the pool doesn't show up, and neither do the IP's. But using nova-manage, I can see both. Can someone explain to me the difference between the two? I've got a stack running on a single VM on VMware Workstation, and I can't get any VM's to run because I can't assign them IP's. Help would be sincerely appreciated.

The nova-manage tool does queries in the nova database to return information. You must have admin privileges if you're able to see all the output for that tool.

The nova Command-Line Interface makes API calls. You can use nova --debug floating-ip-pool-list to see the API calls and the tenant's token that the nova CLI is using to make the calls.
