the cinder logs are giving me errors about not being able to connect to the AMQP server. From the /var/log/cinder/cinder-scheduler.log & /var/log/cinder/cinder-volume.log files:

2013-08-28 17:00:06     INFO [cinder.openstack.common.rpc.common] Reconnecting to AMQP server on
2013-08-28 17:00:09    ERROR [cinder.openstack.common.rpc.common] AMQP server on is unreachable: Socket closed. Trying again in 30 seconds.

From the /etc/rabbitmq/rabbitmq.config file:

jschaeffer@reaper:~$ sudo cat /etc/rabbitmq/rabbitmq.config
[sudo] password for jschaeffer:
  {rabbit, [
    {tcp_listeners,[{"", 5672}]}

Status of the rabbitmq service:

I had the same problem on Ubuntu 12.04. Here is the process I followed and it helped me and so writing it down here:

Run rabbitmqctl environment to verify listening IP and port. By default rabbit is listening on all interfaces on port 5672

cd /etc/log/cinder/

run tail -F * Here I found the above error.

cd /etc/log/rabbitmq/

run tail -F *

Here I found that rabbit was not authenticating connections from virtual host /.

This is the virtual host set in the /etc/cinder/cinder.conf. If no virtual host is set the default is /

rabbitmqctl set_permissions -p / <user> "." "." ".*"</user>

This fixed it

Okay I found the problem. I had this in my /etc/cinder/cinder.conf file which I pulled from the quick installation guide:

rabbit_host = rabbit_port = 5672 rabbit_userid = guest rabbit_password = password rabbit_virtual_host = /nova

I commented out the "rabbit_virtual_host", restarted all cinder services and I can see a successful connection to AMQP now.
