I have installed openstack juno using the following commands at the ubuntu 14.04 LTS commandline:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install git
git clone -b stable/juno
cd devstack
sudo apt-get install vim
sudo vim stackrc

in this stackrc i have changed GIT_BASE=${GIT_BASE:-}

i have saved and quit stackrc. then had executed the following at the command prompt


it took passwords for nova, glance,etc. finally openstack is installed with dashboard user id : admin or demo and passward and it had given me ip address also. now after logging into dash board, when i am trying to create instances i am getting a problem saying that there is an error and unable to launch instances. please help with the solution steps i need to perform to overcome the problem.

Just to add, since yours is a devstack setup you should be checking the logs in /opt/stack/logs/screen/ path esp. the screen-n-sch.log to see the actual error.

If you encounter problems with your OpenStack environment, the first thing you should do is investigate the relevant service logs (e.g., in /var/log/nova, if you are having problems booting instances). Often there will errors message that are usful for diagnosing the problem.
