I'm trying to disable a compute node and I keep getting this error. I'm on Ubuntu server 12.04 + grizzly. Here's the syntax and error:

admin@control02:~$ sudo nova-manage --debug service disable --service=nova-compute
error: Could not find binary nova-compute on host

I've tried disabling several nodes just to be sure it wasn't the one offline one causing issues.

As far as I see I don't have any path issues on the compute nodes, nova-compute is in the path (/usr/bin)

Is the same host that is listed when you run nova-manage service list? The FQDN of hosts must be the same as what service list outputs.

That was it. nova service list did NOT have the FQDN, so just listing compute02 solved it!
