Hello, i just installed the first cinder node(on an existing compute node, only metadata running) and i cant get it listed in the cinder service list. When i create a volume its in error state. Can you please help me alittle? I must be missing something here. Thanks

ALSO: Here are some logs after i try to create a volume. I know i cant create a volume if dot have cinder-volume. Also, cinder-volume service is running on the node

I had the same errors in cinder-volume.log file until in cinder.conf I moved 3 string from oslo_messaging_rabbit section to DEFAULT section. Understand? These three strings: rabbit_host = controller rabbit_userid = openstack rabbit_password = password i moved from [oslo_messaging_rabbit] to [DEFAULT

I ffound the solution after taling directly on IRC. By default the debconf didnt create the database conection string in the cinder.conf and also the database cinder user couldnt coonect from anything alse than local host. after manualy creating the connection string in Cinder.conf and also putting % in the Cinder-common DB user Cinder volume was registered in the database. I dont know if this should be filed as a bug of the Guide

Check if the cinder-volume service is able to connect to AMQP server. And also ensure that all the nodes in openstack setup are synchronized(w.r.t time).

yes i can see it is "2014-11-02 13:19:46.731 3724 INFO oslo.messaging._drivers.impl_rabbit [-] Connected to AMQP server on"

As fpr the time NTP is running on all nodes and the controller. Also the nodes are also ruunig compute whose services are runnnig with no errors.

post the configuration of below files.


and give the out put of:

ps -ef |grep tgtd
tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode system

verify the cinder services are running,

cd /etc/init.d/; for i in $( ls cinder-* ); do sudo service $i status; done

@RHK I have done what you said and i have also posted above all the logs and confs. CInder is running on controller and on node. I have weird problem with tgtd i cannot restart it, i may not have init.d scripts but i can see it on services list. Thank you!
