I have been stuck on the following step. I searched it on Internet but none of them could solve the problem. I am getting following error while creating the "identity service".

root@controller:~# openstack service create --name keystone --description "OpenStack_Identity" identity
usage: openstack service create [-h] [-f {shell,table}] [-c COLUMN]
                                [--variable VARIABLE] [--prefix PREFIX]
                                [--name <service-name>] [--enable | --disable]
openstack service create: error: unrecognized arguments: --description identity

If i type the command :

root@NodeTwo:~# openstack service list

then it gives the following error :

INFO: urllib3.connectionpool Starting new HTTP connection (1): NodeTwo

ERROR: Internal Server Error (HTTP 500)

My error logs are :

Please help, thanking you.

Perhaps your openstack client is incompatible with the keystone server or some libraries. openstack --version and keystone-manage --version show you the versions. Then, on, click keystone and openstackclient to find out to what OpenStack release they correspond.

I also notice that the usage message is different from the latest doc Probably your client is old.

Hey thanks for the reply. My openstack client version is : 0.3.0 and keystone version is : 2014.1.5. How do i know if they are compatible or not and how to upgrade them if needed. please suggest, Thanks.
