Hi XicoLoco, I think you are trying to host a KVM box instead of qemu. once go through this (link text) From the guide: If you install Compute on a virtual machine for testing purposes, you must determine whether your hypervisor and/or CPU support nested hardware acceleration using the following command:

egrep  -c '(vmx|svm)' /proc/cpuinfo

If this command returns a value of one or greater, your hypervisor and/or CPU support nested hardware acceleration which requires no additional configuration.

If this command returns a value of zero, your hypervisor and/or CPU do not support nested hardware acceleration and libvirt must use QEMU instead of KVM. Edit the [libvirt] section in the /etc/nova/nova-compute.conf file to modify this key:

virt_type = qemu

tk you for answer but i have tested the host before :

root@compute1:~# egrep -c '(vmx|svm)' /proc/cpuinfo 

the cloud is working the only thing is on suspend and resume action ... any other idea

Hey XicoLoco, from the error message above, I doubt on this line

unsupported configuration: host doesn't support invariant TSC to caller

The Time Stamp Counter (TSC) is a 64-bit register present on all x86 processors since the Pentium. It counts the number of cycles since reset. (source: wiki)

  1. Check whether /proc/cpuinfo talks about TSC
  2. I believe TSC falg is disabled on your host, check whether, is there any way to enable TSC
