While configuring the compute node , When I restart the services , nova-api is not starting. Further when I use the command "nova image-list". It returns "ERROR (ConnectionError): ('Connection aborted.', error(111, 'Connection refused')).

Here are some outputs, which may help to diagnose the issue:

root [at] controller:service nova-api restart*
*stop: Unknown instance:*
nova-api start/running, process 4278
root [at] controller:ps -eaf | grep "nova-api"*
root 1000 4306  1670 15:20 pts/1 00:00:00 grep --color=auto nova-api

After uninstalling and installing nova-api service I was able to get this done successfully
