I installed the OpenStack command line client following the directions (here) which installed python_novaclient-3.3.0.

Certain openstack CLI commands work, such as image list. For example:

openstack image list
| ID                                   | Name                                  | Status |
| 20d20781-66b5-432c-8317-43a54c2e2a49 | cirros-0.3.4-x86_64-uec               | active |
| 335aa6da-66be-44b2-aeef-a0e75f2e76e2 | cirros-0.3.4-x86_64-uec-ramdisk       | active |
| fc40063c-4291-4324-bce9-e3e55fe75e50 | cirros-0.3.4-x86_64-uec-kernel        | active |
| c4a9464d-7bef-49e0-88fe-67373fa76381 | cirros-0.3.4-x86_64-disk              | active |

However, other commands fail, such as "openstack server create". The failure I get is the same failure when I run "nova image-list". For example:

nova --debug image-list

The root cause of the problem was I had the rackspace-novaclient python package, along with other packages, also installed. Here is this list of packages I had to uninstall: rackspace-novaclient os_virtual_interfacesv2_python_novaclient_ext rax_default_network_flags_python_novaclient_ext os_diskconfig_python_novaclient_ext
