Description mlessard 2013-09-10 14:21:45 EDT
Description of problem:
When i try to lunch an instance, the nova scheduler goes into an infinite loop.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Additional info:
The error seems to come from this event, taken from the schduler log fil : 
TRACE nova.openstack.common.periodic_task OperationalError: (OperationalError) (1045, "Access denied for user 'nova'@'' (using password: YES)") None None

So, the setup of the nova password during the installation must be wrong.
Comment 1 Xavier Queralt 2013-09-11 04:20:54 EDT
It looks like a configuration problem so the problem would be in packstack (if you installed with packstack).

Could you give some more details about the system (f19, rhel, centos, ...) where you had this problem?

Did you deploy using packstack? If so, how many times and how did you run it? When you run it for a second time you must use the answer file generated by the first install, so it gets the passwords properly.

If you deployed using packstack, could you provide the logs which are under /var/tmp/packstack ?

It the allinone packstack installation on RHEL 6.4. I had to relaunch the installation few times, and i didn't use the answer file after.  

I'm unable to launch an instance via Horizon. 

I am on the road for the day, will provide you the log file tomorrow.

Logs uploaded ... In the mean time, if you have any idea on how i can fix the nova password (which password should i put?), let me know.
Comment 6 Xavier Queralt 2014-03-10 09:44:15 EDT
I'm closing this as I don't see any way to further debug the problem. From the previous logs it appears that there was a misconfiguration, probably caused by packstack having been run several times without the same answers file.
