No handlers could be found for logger "nova.root"

On a 100% fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 I do the following: sudo apt-get -y update sudo apt-get -y upgrade

Follow the instructions at with one exception. Instead of wget

I grab the tarball from and do wget

When I get to the step to sync the db sudo nova-manage db sync

I get the following error message, No handlers could be found for logger "nova.root"

This is just masking the real error. The workaround to see the real error is to add the lines, from nova import log as logging logging.basicConfig()

into /usr/local/bin/nova-manage. At which point you see the error No module named boto

This question isn't about the boto error but the logging workaround. You shouldn't have to throw in workaround code every time you want to see the cause of an error. What can be done here or should I simply submit this as a bug?
