Cinder + LVM: No valid host found

I am setting up a single-node deployment of OpenStack Havana and have had some trouble getting the LVM backend configuration working with Cinder. I've limited my LVM testing to using a small loopfile as the backing file. I've gone through the process of creating the default physical volume/volume group while setting the appropriate configuration parameters in /etc/cinder/cinder.conf. However, when I issue a cinder create call I get the following error in /var/log/cinder/cinder-scheduler.log:

Failed to schedule_create_volume: No valid host was found.

The following is the content of /etc/cinder/cinder.conf and the results of a few LVM and cinder commands. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

/etc/cinder/cinder.conf [DEFAULT] rootwrap_config = /etc/cinder/rootwrap.conf api_paste_confg = /etc/cinder/api-paste.ini iscsi_helper = tgtadm volume_driver = cinder.volume.drivers.lvm.LVMISCSIDriver volume_name_template = volume-%s volume_group = cinder-volumes volume_backend_name = LVM_iSCSI verbose = True auth_strategy = keystone state_path = /var/lib/cinder lock_path = /var/lock/cinder volumes_dir = /var/lib/cinder/volumes rabbit_host = localhost rabbit_port = 5672

Change the following settings if you're not using the default RabbitMQ

configuration

rabbit_userid = guest

rabbit_password = guest

rabbit_virtual_host = /nova
