I am trying to deploy openstack on three nodes - (1) controller node, (2) compute node and (3) network node.

I am working on CentOS and following this tutorial

Now I am configuring Network Node. Network configuration starts at page 92. Firstly I would like to run quantum-server so I did everything from page 92 to 105. But something is not working.

When I do " service quantum-server restart" the result is

Stopping quantum: [FAILED]

Starting quantum: [ OK ]

And it happens all the time, that means that quantum-server works only a short period of time and it comes dead.

When I do

quantum-server --config-file /etc/quantum/quantum.conf --debug --verbose

the logs are as follows

INFO [quantum.service] Quantum service started, listening on

**that means that something is working. Also MySQL database on controller node sees that user quantum is logged. But the command

openstack-status ends with**

== Quantum services ==

quantum-server: dead

quantum-dhcp-agent: inactive (disabled on boot)

quantum-l3-agent: inactive (disabled on boot)

quantum-linuxbridge-agent: dead (disabled on boot)

quantum-openvswitch-agent: inactive (disabled on boot)

openvswitch: active (disabled on boot)

Here are my config files


[composite:quantum] use = egg:Paste#urlmap /: quantumversions /v2.0: quantumapi_v2_0

[composite:quantumapi_v2_0] use = call:quantum.auth:pipeline_factory noauth = extensions quantumapiapp_v2_0 keystone = authtoken keystonecontext extensions quantumapiapp_v2_0

I had a similar problem with quantum on ubuntu and RabbitMQ. There was the problem that RabbitMQ was not working correctly and peaces of my cloud was going to a strange behavior. The strange thing was, no error in RabbitMQ or Neutron (Quantum) but a restart of them resolved the problem.

Maybe you should check your AMQP server.

Thanks you for your response. Can I have your Skype or Facebook nick, because I have few questions about Openstack? Thank you.
