SUSE Cloud 5 - nova-compute is down due to libvirt error
we are setting up a cloud environment and were able to install it after facing several problems. Now that we finally got all mandatory services deployed by crowbar to the control and compute node, we can log in to the OpenStack web-interface and create projects, users, images. After uploading a debian-image we tried to start our first instance based on this image.
The instance could not be started because of the message "No valid host was found, Code 500". The log files for the compute node on our admin node (/var/log/nodes/<MAC-ADDRESS-COMPUTE-NODE>.log) were saying:
May 11 10:07:07 d0c-c4-7a-06-71-f0 openstack-nova-compute: Starting nova-compute..done
May 11 10:07:08 d0c-c4-7a-06-71-f0 libvirtd: End of file while reading data: Input/output error
May 11 10:07:08 d0c-c4-7a-06-71-f0 openstack-nova-compute: Shutting down nova-compute..done
Obviously the required service is not abled to stay up, so the instance can not be transferred from control to admin node. Checking "nova-manage service list" shows "XXX" for nova-compute:
