When I am trying to boot an instance with 3 NICs on havana, it failed. Before I could successfully boot my image with NICs. Now on havana, I can launch an instance with 2 NICs, 3 NICs will cause an ERROR.

here's the log from nova-compute.log:

Did this work for single NIC setup ? I did not see any error related to multiple NICs in the logs attached. what is value specified in nova-compute.conf for libvert_type ? Can you change the same to qemu and retry ?

Yes, it works for single NIC. here's my nova-compute.conf [DEFAULT] libvirt_type=kvm compute_driver=libvirt.LibvirtDriver libvirt_vif_type=ethernet libvirt_vif_driver=nova.virt.libvirt.vif.LibvirtGenericVIFDriver I tried libvirt_type=qemu, still the same issue. ~

let me check and revert. I know there is some issue with getting instances with multiple NIC. It gets the IP for one, but fails for other. This should not set the instance to error state. Can you check what is libvritd.log telling ?

Here's something from libvirtd.log: 2014-01-06 08:09:19.915+0000: 24137: warning : virAuditSend:135 : Failed to send audit message virt=qemu op=start reason=booted vm="instance-0000004b" uuid=97c74b4a-34a2-48f8-b12f-e94ac029a8d6 vm-pid=-1: Operation not permitted

Or you can use to share long log messages
