I'm doing a new installation.

I'm trying to finish configuring neurron networking. However, when I run:

# neutron net-list

I get:

Connection to neutron failed: Maximum attempts reached

Further investigation shows that I'm not getting rabbit to start. Here is a sample error message from the rabbit log file:

=ERROR REPORT==== 3-Aug-2014::06:37:09 ===
closing AMQP connection <0.2267.0> ( ->
                             "AMQPLAIN login refused: user 'guest' - invalid credentials",

So, where do I set the guest credentials?

That helped, but I also had a syntax error in neutron.conf. I've made progress.

Thank you.

For example:

# rabbitmqctl list_users | grep guest


# rabbitmqctl change_password guest somepassword

However, you should verify that the username and password entry in all of openstack's service configuration files (e.g. nova.conf) are set accordingly (rabbit_userid and rabbit_password).
