Unable to load vmwareapi.VMwareVCDriver driver on second compute node

Hello friends,

I have installed Openstack (Havana) successfully using RDO quick start guide on a single box and got it to work with VMware VC driver. I have also successfully added the second compute node by followed RDO guide ( http://openstack.redhat.com/Adding_a_compute_node ). However, I haven't been able to use the second compute node since I was not able to start the openstack-nova-compute service with VMwareVCDriver. I have included the output from compute.log below.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

The error: "ImportError: No module named vmwareapi" seems to indicate that something that powers the VM API is not installed.

I'd doublecheck that I followed the exact same installation steps, then work out which package provides the module and then install it and work out why it wasn't installed on the second node.

Thanks for the response; install python-suds fixed the problem.
