I'm very new on openstack and i'm trying to create an Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS with openstack. I've used the devstack script to do it but after a reboot only the webpage is working. After a lot of searchs in google i've noticed that all services necessary to work are stopped and after run the programs manually is working fine again. The programs i run are:

  • nova-api
  • cinder-api
  • glance-api

After searching again in google and checking the system i've seen that there is not services installed on the server.

I've tried some commands of the manual but are not working for me. How i can install that services manually?

Thanks!!! and i'm sorry for my english.

./ works OK ( stable/liberty branch) , if previously mount loop cinder required files (two files), otherwise just cinder daemons fail to restart.

Devstack, in best case scenario successfully starts a bunch of (restart able) daemons (via ./ ), but never configure any services.

Thanks!!. I´ll continue searching. i'm trying to create a one node cloud (for now) but all manuals i've found are old or did not work as expected.

devstack is not resilient against rebooting. You can try the script, but depending on your configuration, this may not be sufficient.

It's best to keep your devstack configuration up and running. Alternatively, run devstack in a virtual machine and suspend the VM when you don't need it.
