Seems it is the problem with stack user creation. Initially in the devstack folder run the ./ it will asks you for stack user creation for example, root@openstack:~/devstack# ./ You are running this script as root. If you need an account to run DevStack, do this (as root, heh) to create a non-root account: /root/devstack/tools/ then run the file root@openstack:~/devstack# /root/devstack/tools/ It will create stack user and adds the stack user to sudoers file. Now follow this steps 1. su stack 2. clone devstack 3. switch to stable/kilo 4. ./
