OS: ubuntu-server 14.04

I'm following this installation guide

After installing keystone and setting mysql connection in /etc/keystone/keystone.conf, deleted keystone.db in /var/lib/keystone, I run this command su -s /bin/sh -c "keystone-manage db_sync" keystone that should generatte tables in mysql keystone database. It only recreates keystone.db. No error in the logs.

What am I missing?

That means it is using SQLIte as back-end.

Make sure "connection" string in "/etc/keystone/keystone.conf" configured properly. And also check there should be only one connection variable, and that too under the database block.

If you are not able to figure it out, then paste you configuration file.

If this is the case possible cause for this is either there is a second entry for connection in /etc/keystone/keystone.conf or some authentication problem .

To check that you can run the below commands

$ keystone-manage db_sync 2> stderr.log $ cat stderr.log 2014-04-29 10:31:17.072 35866 CRITICAL keystone [-] OperationalError: (OperationalError) (2005, "Unknown MySQL server host 'controller' (0)") None None

[database] connection = mysql://keystone:keystone@controller/keystone

But I'ts nowhere in the installation guide that I should comment out connection to sqlite. connection = sqlite////var/lib/keystone/keystone.db. I think it's nice to include it in the documentation as well. Since they have included in the documentation to delete /var/lib/keystone/keystone.db.

Yeah and where ever you see like =<some value=""> in the documentation. Check if that variable is already present in that configuration file or not. If it is present then MODIFY it, it that is not present then add it.

Also make sure you are adding to the correct block in the configuration file.
