When I run source openrc ; /usr/bin/openstack-status on my controller nodes I get a lot of good info. But when I do source openrc ; /usr/bin/openstack-status on my neutron nodes I get this ...

== Nova services ==
openstack-nova-api:                     inactive  (disabled on boot)
Warning novarc not sourced

So what the difference between my openrc and what should be in the novarc? My openrc looks like this ...

# cat openrc
export OS_TENANT_NAME=admin
export OS_USERNAME=admin
export OS_PASSWORD=xxxxx
export OS_AUTH_URL=https://xxxxx:35357/v2.0

openrc and novarc both are source file. Name doesnot matter. Only the content inside the file matters. It is used to set ENVIRONMENT variable while passing commands.
