I am facing issue while Launch an instance

After Launching the Instance , actually it should be ACTIVE

root@controller:/home/ubuntu# openstack server list
| ID                                   | Name                 | Status | Networks                | Image Name |
| 67ee64ee-b96e-4010-87c0-8eca0b671ec3 | selfservice-instance | ERROR  | selfservice1= | xenial     |
| 1eb8c638-719b-4d70-863f-dfdad7225581 | selfservice-instance | ERROR  | selfservice1=  | xenial     |

I see the falowing error in log
