### Why does tacker fail to instanciate my VNF's instance ?

Hi all,

I'm running a fresh install of an Ubuntu 14.04 x64 server (on virtualbox).

I am trying to test tacker in a devstack environment. So far I have tried the latest stable Liberty & Mitaka branch without success. Here's what I'm doing (I'll use Liberty in this example, but the process I'm doing for Mitaka is the same) :

1. Checkout the latest stable branch from the devstack git (git clone -b stable/liberty https://github.com/openstack-dev/devstack.git)
2. Create a local.conf file inside the checked-out directory (Content is available here:http://pastebin.com/bB9WwfzJ )
3. Run ./stack.sh (NOT as root)
4. Create a directory named tacker directory of the home folder that will contain two files : My opennfv_rc file to set the proper environment variables so that I can use the tacker CLI AND The following yaml file for a simple cirros deploy, based on the examples provided in the Tacker Hands On NFV Session
5. Use the following commands to create my vnfd & vnf based on the template @ step 5.

$tacker vnfd-create --vnfd-file ~/tacker/cirros-test-vdu.yaml --name cirros-test-vdu-2$ tacker vnf-create --vnfd-id ad99648f-84cf-43d2-96a8-53787331eb13 --name cirros-test-vdu

Note : the --vnf-id value for the vnf-create command is show in the terminal after the vnfd-create command has completed successfully. If you execute this command you will obtain a different ID and will have to use this one.

What happens is the VNF is created successfully, I see no ERRORS / WARNINGS in the logs of devstack for any module, and the NFV dashboard shows the created VNFD / VNF. However, no instance is created (under any project - admin, service, demo - ), what am I doing wrong ?

I checked that I can spin up a VM using only nova and it works so I eliminated a possible problem with the compute module. The same thing happens regardless of the version of devstack that I am using (Mitaka/Liberty)

Any help is greatly appreciated !
