This is not working for me.. because it gives me The program 'nova-manage' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: apt install nova-common..

Are you end user of OpenStack cloud (=have access only via API) or administrator (=have access to servers running OpenSta)? 'nova-manage' is intended for latter. In case you are end user - maybe my answer in will be of help

Hey vathanlal,

There are a few ways to check what version you are running. Your client check will let you know which version of OpenStack the client was released under -

Regarding OpenStack itself, you can check on one of your compute nodes the nova-compute service for example against the release info for example - - :

nova 14.0.0 14.0.2 release notes

(nova-14.0.2) root@compute01:~# nova-compute --version 14.0.3

You can check other services as well as noted by the{release} link but I prefer to use nova-compute since it is a core project and in my view going to probably follow the same standard.

A bit of minor correction - OpenStack client version (such as 3.2.0 above) is not indicating OpenStack release OSC client is compatible with (...)

(...) rather it indicates the version of client released _at time_ of OpenStack release. So newest client should have no problem working towards older releases of OpenStack. Otherwise those having 'one client' but connecting towards multiple OpenStack installations would have hard time

Absolutely right, updated, I mis-spoke.
