Devstack installtion with local.conf,

[[local|localrc]]
    ADMIN_PASSWORD=secrete
    DATABASE_PASSWORD=secrete
    RABBIT_PASSWORD=secrete
    SERVICE_PASSWORD=secrete
    SERVICE_TOKEN=a682f596-76f3-11e3-b3b2-e716f9080d50
    #FIXED_RANGE=172.31.1.0/24
    #FLOATING_RANGE=192.168.20.0/25
    #HOST_IP=10.3.4.5

    ENABLED_SERVICES+=,n-cell

installs a devstack with a child cell (with name child) and a parent cell. It's possible to create a server in it.

When issued the command nova cell-show child, it throws exception,

ERROR (ClientException): The server has either erred or is incapable of performing the requested operation. (HTTP 500) (Request-ID: req-5df5470a-5135-4cca-b301-238b0a9ce7c2)

The relevant stack trace is as follows,
