I'm hopping I can get some help. I have been fighting with this issue for 2 weeks and I have done a fresh install of CentOS 7 no less than 200 times already trying to play with every possible outcome to get up and running with packstack. I have followed the RDO instructions to the letter every time (its a no brainer) I have tested this with packstack --allinone and I have also used --gen-answer-file and edited the answers to suit my needs. Every time its the same issue when trying to create and instance in horizon. "Error: Unable to retrieve volume limit information." "Danger: There was an error submitting the form. Please try again."

I have tried the fix from this post: ( And it does not help in the slightest.

I can create a volume under the Compute > Volumes without issue But creating an instance boot form image (creates a new volume) is giving me the error. Also If I try to launch an instance form a volume already crated its giving errors as well. Settings are missing form create instance such as : Availability Zone saying no availability zones found Type isn't showing

I have attached some screen shots. If you want me to attach any logs please just let me know which ones. (instance screenshot) (instance 2 screenshot) (instance 3 screenshot) (instance 4 screenshot) (volumes screenshot) (volumes 2 screenshot) (volumes 3 screenshot)

I believe, you're talking of Liberty version, is that correct? Do you have a error log ready and shared it somewhere?
