Hi, i'm using openstack (icehouse) with virt-manager and 3 vms (controller, compute and network with neutron and gre). When I try to launch a new cirros 0.3.4 image, i have an error on the compute node:

DEBUG nova.virt.disk.api [req-e98d3647-5bff-4524-8d3f-c3275f10f607 66713c43084e4163ad01a79d66f96276bfd8576b0dae41a9bdd67b58e3c835a4] 
Unable to mount image /var/lib/nova/instances/5e0693fc-891a-43d4-be78-33ec47bc7b07/disk with error 
Error mounting /var/lib/nova/instances/5e0693fc-891a-43d4-be78-33ec47bc7b07/disk with libguestfs (mount_options: /dev/sda on / (options: ''): mount: you must specify the filesystem type). 
Cannot resize. is_image_partitionless /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/nova/virt/disk/

On the compute node, I have virt_type = qemu and inject_partition = -2

Please, someone can help me? I cannot find a solution

Set inject_partition = -1, this will make libguestfs inspect the appropriate partition to mount.

Sorry, I have the same behavior with inject_partition=-1 and inject_partition=-2. Are there other solution? I searched everywhere and there are no solutions provided
