Nova-conductor, nova-cert and nova-consoleauth can't get started.

root@nimbo1:/# nova-manage service list
Binary           Host                                 Zone             Status     State Updated_At

nova-cert        nimbo1                               internal         enabled    XXX   2013-10-05 03:49:14

When I try to restart one of them, this happens,

root@nimbo1:/# service nova-conductor restart
stop: Unknown instance: 
nova-conductor start/running, process 8382


root@nimbo1:/# service nova-conductor status
nova-conductor stop/waiting

And this error appears when I try to start manually nova-conductor in /usr/bin

root@nimbo1:/usr/bin# ./nova-conductor

Does anyone know how to fix it please?
