cinder service-list outputs ERROR: 'services'

I'm setting up a openstack environment and got stuck at the cinder-volume part.

I just followed the manual to install juno on debian. When I set up cinder-volume first I had some troubles with keystone and rabbitmq but those problems are solved now. However I cannot do cinder commands as they all give errors.


root@ostack-controller:~# cinder service-list
ERROR: 'services'

Unfortunately nothing else is logged. In the log appear only some already solved problems with keystone and rabbitMQ but nothing else (checked out in cinder-volume.log, cinder-scheduler.log and cinder-api.log)

How can I search for further Information? This error isn't really useful for me...

If you login as root to mysql and select database cinder can you run :-
MariaDB [cinder]> select * from services ;

OK, this outputs 2 services. One is cinder-volume and the other is cinder-scheduler. But where's the problem with the cinder command line? This results also in a unusable dashboard so everything is quite unusable right now...

Do export admin credentials before running command ?

export OS_USERNAME=admin
export OS_TENANT_NAME=admin
export OS_AUTH_URL=
export OS_REGION_NAME=RegionOne
export PS1='[\u@\h \W(keystone_admin)]\$ '

Of course, I'm doing it with source When I'm not doing this I get the following error:

ERROR: You must provide a user name through --os-username or env[OS_USERNAME].

Verification required by myself

$ keystone user-get cinder
$ keystone tenant-list
I want verify that cinder's tenant is services

Per your the most recent report :-

root@ostack-controller:~# keystone user-get cinder
No user with a name or ID of 'cinder' exists.
root@ostack-controller:~# keystone tenant-list
|                id                |  name | enabled |
| 4d5eb3c2bd79416dbfda8c32530322aa | admin |   True  |

Should look like :-

[root@juno1 glance(keystone_admin)]# keystone user-get cinder
| Property |              Value               |
|  email   |         cinder@localhost         |
| enabled  |               True               |
|    id    | b87360c784924e97a3fe12d93635805d |
|   name   |              cinder              |
| tenantId | 0e70d24f3d4743f78287698a1c7cf05d |
| username |              cinder              |
[root@juno1 glance(keystone_admin)]# keystone tenant-list
|                id                |   name   | enabled |
| 2561f253faca48399d0cc77886574e1d |  admin   |   True  |
| b302ecfaf76740189fca446e2e4a9a6e |   demo   |   True  |
| 7f4d306bd3364edfba21045ce76bb15f | ostenant |   True  |
| 0e70d24f3d4743f78287698a1c7cf05d | services |   True  |

Please set up cinder user and service properly
File /etc/cinder/cinder.conf also requires attention. Sample I've already uploaded.

OK, so now I've purged the configuration of all cinder services and startet with those from scratch. Most of the stuff I got asked now by debconf all the keystone, database, rabbitmq and so on and now I've got a working cinder setup. I'll mark your answer as correct, as you did good troubleshooting.

I think, this error raised from the client (cinder-client) itself. That is why it it not generating any error logs.

Do one thing, execute cinder --debug service-list And paste the output. If that is not useful, it is better to re-install the cinder client.

This may be true. It seems that it's just opening a keystone session and that's it. Or I'm getting something wrong there:
