I am trying to get a 3-Node setup on Ubuntu 13.04 - using the setup instructions at:

I believe I have followed the instructions verbatim - but I am unable to complete Network creation for some reason and hence proceed to testing a VM creation and other subsequent steps.

quantum net-create seems to hang eternally - and I have to Ctrl-C out the command. Following is the Stack trace that is thrown - when terminated. Any ideas what could be potentially wrong and the fix for this issue?

Donno. Check the quantum server and keystone logs. Run 'quantum --verbose net-create ...' to find what do_request is calling.

I'm having the same problem. Did you ever get an answer to this problem?

figured it out. found this: The next step may hang if rabbitmq does not have 1GB free space in /var/lib/rabbitmq (its default disk_free_limit setting). Increased the size of /var and it fixed the problem.
