just to be clear the keystone commands for creation of service have been recently replaced with openstack. This has happened since the Kilo release of openstack. So now your error can only be solved if you tell us which version of openstack you are trying to setup/install

Hi, It clears says "openstack" command not found! The command what you are trying to execute is wrong one.

Keystone is an OpenStack identity service that manages user databases and OpenStack service catalogs and their API endpoints.

The right command to create service is: keystone service-create --name keystone --type identity --description "OpenStack Identity".

For more info follow OpenStack manuals:

Keystone command has been deprecated in kilo in favor to the openstack command

I have stated the commands for Juno release of Openstack. I haven't worked with Kilo release. Thanks for the info.
