2014-06-26 22:29:37 -0500 marked best answer vm error, cannot boot

I have used this guide ( to deploy openstack on a Ubuntu VM inside vmware esxi.
I want to boot the cirros image but after i've created & launched the vm i got "Error" on the "State" column.
My /var/log/nova/nova-compute.log file is empty. I've tried also with an ubuntu image but i always got the same result. What am i doing wrong?
With nova show $vmname i've found this: fault message no valid host was found.

2014-01-23 18:42:04 -0500 marked best answer br100 setup and nova fixed ip range

This is my situation:

  • An ESXi 5.0 Server (I'm doing a project for my BD);
  • A pool with 2 VM (1 controller node and 1 compute node)
  • Ubuntu 13.04 amd64 Server installed on both VM
  • The controller IP is
  • i've successfully setup keystone, glance and partially nova

My problem with nova is the creation of the br100 and the fixed range subnet. Inside the /etc/network/interfaces file i have:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto br100
iface br100 inet dhcp
bridge_ports eth0
bridge_stp off
bridge_fd 0
bridge_maxwait 0

inside the file /etc/nova/nova.conf i have:


I have also enabled ip forwarding inside /etc/sysctl.conf and i have set eth0 promisc with ip link set eth0 promisc on.

The cmd brctl show show:

bridge name      bridge id    STP enabled        interfaces
br100            8000.xxxx    no                 eth0

What i am doing wrong?

I would like to install OpenStack 2013.1.1 on Ubuntu 13.04 which is installed in my notebook.
I thought to follow this guide: but i have some doubts:

  1. I have only 1 NIC so what i have to do? Just ignore where the guide say "add eth0"?
  2. I want that all the VMs can be connected to my LAN ( so with 1 NIC is this possible?

2013-07-01 15:30:38 -0500 marked best answer cloudify openstack grizzly

I have a problem with Cloudify (both 2.5 and 2.6-rc release).

I have an All-In-One Openstack 2013.1.1 setup and i'm trying to use cloudify to bootstrap a cirros 0.3.1 vm.

My quantum configuration is:

a private fixed ip for vm management

floating ip taken from the pool ( is my lan)

When i deploy a vm first an ip from is given (i cannot reach it from PCs because it is only for vm management) and then i associate a floating ip with which i can ping the/ssh into deployed machine.

The problem is that when i do:

bootstrap-cloud openstack

because cloudify stay forever into "attempting to access management vm" and this is due to the fact that is not reachable.

What can i do to get cloudify take the floating ip instead of the fixed one?

but does it works with Quantum? Because i don't use nova-network!

I'm trying to deploy a VM using cloudify but it tries to connect to the fixed ip ( instead of the floating one (
There is a way to route the fixed ip to the floating ip so when cloudify tries to connect to is will be redirected to
