Try checking if there are any space issues on the machine in which neutron-server is running? And also try deleting neutron-server.log, restart netron-server service and check if there are any error messeges in the log.

tail -f /var/log/neutron/*.log

then at the same time in another tty or screen try service neutron-server restart also leave

netstat -ntlp
ls -al /etc/neutron/
la -al /var/log/neutron/

check if the file/folder owners are right?

also try login with su neutron and run the neutron-server command manually this ill lead to some solutions :)

Check the status of rabbit-mq server and selinux policy.You can give a try by first setting selinux policy to be disabled, then restart rabbit-mq server.If rabbit-mq is active and running then ensure there is an IP assigned with the eth interface for your system node.Then restart openstack services/neutron server. After which if there is need in your env, you can work by changing the selinux to permissive policy and repeat this procedure.Hope this helps...:)
