Hi all! I'm newbie to OpenStack. I have installed OpenStack Liberty with one controller node and one compute node. I followed OpenStack docs while installtion. While launching an instance i am getting an error

ERROR (ClientException): Unexpected API Error. Please report this at and attach the Nova API log if possible. <class 'keystoneclient.exceptions.BadRequest'> (HTTP 500) (Request-ID: req-90617730-493a-4974-93a6-a68642d5ace7) . In nova api log file i found this info will be useful for you. Please help me with the issue. Thanks in advance.

Have double checked that nova.conf is properly configured? specially for following parameters.

network_api_class =
security_group_api = neutron
linuxnet_interface_driver =
firewall_driver = nova.virt.firewall.NoopFirewallDriver
