I'm having difficulty getting Cinder and Keystone to talk properly (I've tried several other solutions related to this question to no avail). I have an RDO deployment of OpenStack on a bare metal (the controller) and Cinder installed on a separate node (the node). I have confirmed connectivity between the controller and the node. On the controller, I have deleted the endpoints for cinder and cinderv2 and created new ones that point to the node. I have also deleted the cinder database on the controller and created and synced a rew one. Cinder-API and Cinder-Scheduler are running on the node, but when I try to run 'cinder list', I get the following error in cinder-api.log on the node:

WARNING [keystoneclient.middleware.auth_token] Unexpected response from keystone service: {u'error': {u'message': u'The request you have made requires authentication.', u'code': 401, u'title': u'Unauthorized'}}

On the controller, the following message shows in keystone.log:

WARNING keystone.common.wsgi [-] Authorization failed. The request you have made requires authentication. from <node_IP>

Here's my cinder.conf on the node:

logdir = /var/log/cinder
state_path = /var/lib/cinder
lock_path = /var/lib/cinder/tmp
volumes_dir = /etc/cinder/volumes
iscsi_helper = tgtadm

api_paste_config = /etc/cinder/api-paste.ini
sql_connection = mysql://cinder:5d96c8fa075b400d@<controller_iP>/cinder
rpc_backend = cinder.openstack.common.rpc.impl_kombu
rootwrap_config = /etc/cinder/rootwrap.conf
auth_strategy = keystone
rabbit_host = <controller_IP>
rabbit_port = 5672
rabbit_hosts = <controller_IP>:5672


admin_tenant_name = services
admin_user = cinder
admin_password = passw0rd
auth_uri = http://<controller_IP>:5000/v2.0/
auth_host = <controller_IP>
auth_port = 35357
auth_protocol = http
signing_dirname = /tmp/keystone-signing-cinder

connection = mysql://cinder:5d96c8fa075b400d@<controller_IP>/cinder

And api-paste.ini on the node:

#paste.filter_factory = cinder.api.middleware.auth:CinderKeystoneContext.factory

paste.filter_factory = keystoneclient.middleware.auth_token:filter_factory
admin_password= passw0rd

Output from 'cinder --debug list':

Do cinder --debug list and paste the output

Didn't you see REQ logging? You don't need to copy the token. Do you get the token from keystone?

Once again do cinder --debug list. If you still see 401 check the keystone log , which will have better information about the error

There can be many reason for auth failure. Change the token provider in keystone to uuid provider and restart token. This will give you a better idea. The token will be very small. This setting is under [token] section in keystone.conf

provider = keystone.token.providers.uuid.Provider
