Does the block storage node also need to run AMQP?

Hi all, I am installing Openstack Kilo release on Ubuntu 14.04 by following the official guide located (here). I have setup the controller node and everything looks fine. I setup bock storage node and everything looked fine during the setup. However on controller node cinder service-list shows only cinder-schedular running on controller.

After some digging in, I decided to install RabbitMQ on the block storage node too (although the installation guide doesn't mention so) This apparently fixed my problem as now cinder service-list shows cinder-volume running on block1@lvm along with cinder-schedular on controller.

So, my question is does the block storage node also need to run AMQP? Is this a bug in the install guide that it doesn't mention so.

Hello, I encounter the same issue. Looking at the cinder-volume log it seems that it does not pickup the rabbitmq configuration set in cinder.conf and tries to connect only to localhost.

What says service cinder-api status on controller ?

Post also cinder.conf from storage node and from controller node as UPDATE 1 to your question.

I solved the problem on my machine by reinstalling cinder-volume from the official openstack repository: run this:

 # apt-get remove cinder-volume
 # apt-get install ubuntu-cloud-keyring
 # echo "deb"   "trusty-updates/kilo main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cloudarchive-kilo.list
 # apt-get update
 # apt-get install cinder-volume

Thanks. That solved the problem. :-)
