Dashboard docs: nova service restart command
Last modified: 2013-09-24 13:56:48 EDT
Title: Configuring Database Session Storage
Describe the issue:
Restart the nova-api service to ensure the API server can connect to the Dashboard and to avoid an error displayed in the Dashboard.
#service restart nova-api
Suggestions for improvement:
The correct command is
# service openstack-nova-api restart
Also I'm not sure if the mysql part in the 4th step should create a user as 'dash'@'localhost', instead or next to the 'dash'@'%' user. The other parts of the documentation are doing this.

This bit is covered off under Bug # 975419.

This I think is an issue, in particular because we create 'dash'@'%' but then use localhost as the hostname for local_settings.py. I don't believe that would work because the '%' wildcard does not include the socket based connection created in this case. I think the correct / best approach is to be consistent with the rest of the docs and create both the '%' and 'localhost' grant.
There is also some leading space in the screen element for step 7:
# cd /usr/share/openstack-dashboard
#python manage.py syncdb
Given the minor nature of the required changes I will take it for a 3.0.z update.
