I am installing Openstack kilo in centos environment. I am using neutron architecture with 1 controller, 1 compute and 1 network node. I have completed my installation till dashboard. This is the document which I was referring to for the installation

When am trying to create instances it is getting created without any error. But, the IP address is not allocated to the VM created. It looks fine in dashboard. But when I check using ifconfig command, there is no IP address found. And the IP address which is visible on tha dashboard is not pingable.

The log which I find in dashboard for the VM:

Actually I face the same issue. I have three compute nodes. Compute2 works fine. Compute 1 is somehow unvisible to openstack. If I disable two others and try to use only compute1 I am getting error:

No valid host was found. There are not enough hosts available.

In fresh installed Compute3 I can reate instance but it get error which you described above. Finally after instance is created I see it is attached to network through a port. But I cannot reach this from namespace.
