Hi,

I have set up a Juno Multi node OpenStack deployment. I went to this website: http://docs.openstack.org/image-guide... and downloaded the "Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 KVM Guest Image". All my nodes are VM's so I set virt_type = qemu in my nova.conf on my controller and compute nodes. I can successfully launch and boot the test cirros image but RHEL7 KVM Guest Image hangs on boot and the console log looks like this:

Is my problem that I am using VM's instead of bare metal for my compute nodes?

Were you able to get this working? I'm having similar issue with a CentOS image.

Testing OpenStack Liberty deployed with Fuel on Virtualbox. Cirros image is just fine, but so far no luck with any CentOS image.

No there is no problem using Virtualization on top Virtualization. I have a Kilo environment in RS public cloud and it works fine. Do you have the actual RHEL image for download. I would like to replicate this in my environment and see if I receive the same error.
