You can setup HA after the fact however no matter where you start out (even if you start with packstack ;) so long as your data is intact.

It appears you are having issues with your message queue. A plan of action I would suggest is to single out one instance and follow the trail across interesting logs. This should help with that somewhat -

2017-02-17 21:41:15 -0500 answered a question Manually created image console never appears

Hey kvasko,

By default the console is not visible; at least in my experience and I resolve by doing the following:

cat << EOF > /etc/init/ttyS0.conf
# ttyS0 - getty
# This service maintains a getty on ttyS0 from the point the system is
# started until it is shut down again.

start on stopped rc RUNLEVEL=[12345]
stop on runlevel [!12345]

exec /sbin/getty -L 115200 ttyS0 vt102

Then update your grub configuration - /etc/default/grub

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200n8"

# Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)
GRUB_SERIAL_COMMAND="serial --speed=115200 --unit=0 --word=8 --parity=no --stop=1"

Update your grub configuration by running the following:


Then reboot your server. Hope this helps.

Have you checked the rules for the security group assigned to your VM?

Hey vathanlal,

There are a few ways to check what version you are running. Your client check will let you know which version of OpenStack the client was released under -

Regarding OpenStack itself, you can check on one of your compute nodes the nova-compute service for example against the release info for example - - :

nova 14.0.0 14.0.2 release notes

(nova-14.0.2) root@compute01:~# nova-compute --version 14.0.3

You can check other services as well as noted by the{release} link but I prefer to use nova-compute since it is a core project and in my view going to probably follow the same standard.

2016-11-15 10:22:55 -0500 commented question CPU Load on instance and Controller is very high and unresponsive

Hey Amar,

The specs for your servers are quite low and there is no detail in your question regarding the instance that you are spinning up. You will want to use traditional/basic troubleshooting tools to get some data on your environment - top as Bernd mentioned - vmstat, systat, etc.

I agree with volenbovsky that you need to check that your services are actually up and running as the additional packages you installed should have not affect on your current setup; especially if you have only installed and not configured anything.

2015-05-09 15:39:20 -0500 commented question I upgraded from juno to kilo, why am I missing the openstack script/program used in the kilo install manual?

The openstack script/program is designed to replace the many different cli scripts/programs as I understand it. Additionally, I would caution against running dist-upgrade, apt-get update should suffice. The openstack script/program can be installed separately. I recommend using pip to do so.

Increase the verbosity of error output via the nova.conf 'verbose = True' and 'debug = True' then check the log file. If you'd like you can share the output here. Possibly it will provide better direction should no one know based on what you have provided.
